My visit to Cathedral Provincial Park was much more meaningful than I could have ever dreamt it would be. The astonishing beauty of the park was captivating, and it was a personal victory to hike the challenging trails to peaks along the rim.

Make Every Second Count!

January 9, 2015

The year 2015 started off with some very sad news for me. On Jan 1, 2015, my friend, Mark, who I paddled with on a dragon boat team called the Gift of Life, passed away unexpectedly. The Gift of Life Dragon Boat Team is comprised of individuals who actively promote organ donor registration and transplantation. Many on the team are organ recipients.

Random Acts of Kindness

September 18, 2013

I love hearing about random acts of kindness. My heart sings knowing there are loving, caring, and decent people who go out of their way to help and bring joy to others. There’s so much negativity in the world, and so often, only bad news is reported. It’s a breath of fresh air to hear stories of random acts of kindness, or, better yet, to experience them firsthand for yourself.

Procrastinating may seem the easy way out in the short term, but really, it just prolongs the inevitable. We procrastinate about issues we don’t want to face or tasks we don’t want to perform. The problem is the longer you wait, the harder it is for you to confront the issues or complete the tasks. Instead of thinking about the situation just once, and resolving it, it festers in your mind. How much time and energy do you waste thinking and dreading the task or issue at hand, instead of just dealing with it immediately and moving on?
