I work with a mentor. For a year and a half, I've paid her and I've done what she suggested, almost... The one thing I wasn't doing was the Morning Routine. My belief was that it was too complicated and would take too much time in my already extremely chaotic over-stressed morning. On a call last week, while everyone else was talking about the morning routing, I admitted that I haven't been doing it at all.

Last night, I had the privilege of speaking on a panel at Small Business BC in honour of International Women's Day. They asked us questions about how we started our businesses, mistakes we've made along the way, advice we have for other entrepreneurs, etc. but the most powerful question for me was a question about the role women have played in our entrepreneurial journey.

I've started giving everyone that walks into the store a blessing. It is usually a simple silent blessing (the non-religious type) that involves wishing them happiness in their day. I am not sure if the recipients of these blessings can feel them, but I certainly can.

I was just saying on Monday night to a friend that I always feel like I'm standing in the middle of a teeter-totter and that if I step the right way, the teeter-totter will finally tip in my favour. I always feel like I'm on the edge of discovering the secret to success in my business and one day I'll wake up and the answer will be right there waiting for me.

Last weekend I went to a friend's 40th birthday party at the Yale Saloon, a country bar in Vancouver. In addition to line dancing and lots of great food and drinks there was also a motorized bull! The goal was to stay on the bull for 30 seconds which somehow was significantly harder than it seemed.

I bought the cutest potted plant the other day. I was drawn to it because the plant itself is completely adorable, but even better than that, the pot says: “Today I Choose Joy!” I put it on the bathroom counter right by the sink so that I can be inspired daily. I figured that at some point the message of choosing joy would have to sink in.
