Hey – thanks for stopping by and for sharing a bit of your day with me!
Life is just nuts. At least if you have a heartbeat it should feel that way. I tend to think that accepting the status quo only sets us up for boring, mediocre lives and who the heck wants that?
I’m a bit quirky, people say I laugh too much, I’ve been through hell and survived the trip. I share some of that stuff here to encourage others that even when things suck, there is always a bit of humour to be had, a message to hear or a lesson to learn. Life’s just like that.
As a coach, writer, facilitator and employee relations kind of person, I feel kind of sorry for my kids. They don’t have a hope at living mediocre lives without knowing they are consciously making that choice! On the other hand, I analyze every action I take, every thought I have and obsess over what I ‘should’ be doing differently. Sound like you too? Then find me here twice a week as I write from my heart – experiences, ideas, thoughts, challenges, and hopefully a little more of what we all need – some humour! I’m also Canadian so my spelling may be different than your spelling. Don’t hold it against me, just read anyway.
On the home front I am a single parent with 3 children, we live with a cat named Lucy and a rescue dog named Soda. I love love love the mountains, whitewater rafting and Callebaut chocolate…and I may be a wee bit addicted to caffeine.
Little known facts? I have owned and operated a motorcycle, used to pistol shoot but stopped because I got harassed for beating the guys, and I can operate a sound system. At one point in my life I seem to remember producing and hosting a tv program…my favourite memories include meeting and doing a craft with Mr. Dressup, and holding the Stanley Cup.
Life is a gift, is short, and is to be truly lived. It can be fragile and extremely difficult at times, but how I walk through this thing called life and the choices I make, ultimately determine the outcome of my “About Me” story.
