It’s All Good

Like

As we enter 2016, I’d like you to consider this idea as your New Year’s resolution. For the next twelve months, I’d like you to commit to liking every single person you encounter. This would not only include all of the new people you meet along the way, but your boss, co-workers and your in-laws […]

Reciprocity

As we celebrate the holidays over the coming days, we will not only find ourselves being in service to others, but also being served. Restaurant wait staff, retail employees and others will all be working to help us with our holiday endeavours, with many of us sharing our tales of those experiences as we enjoy […]

Patience

Anyone who enjoys good food usually understands the value of patience. There is a reason organic, vine ripened fruit is so sweet and juicy and why that homemade pasta sauce you love tastes so good.

Lost

Every year we hear about the countless stories of people who have been lost in the woods.

Certainty

Much of what I have learned or know to be true in my life has not always come from my successes, but from my failures. I am as well versed in knowing what not to do, as I am in what to do. Looking back I can now see that many of the struggles I […]

Gratitude

Imagine waking up tomorrow morning to find an envelope sitting in your mailbox. You notice it is a little thicker than the others, with only your name written on the front and no return address. You open it to discover that it is filled with hundred dollar bills, 50 of them to be exact. Five […]

Excuses

I think it’s fair to say that most of us have at least one area of our lives that we wish we could improve or change, and if we really told the truth, we’ve been wishing it for a very long time. Yet rather than simply making that change, many of us can get trapped […]
