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.

Celebrate Life!

October 21, 2013

Perspective is so important. Albert Einstein said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as if nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is a miracle.”

What is your perspective on turning older? How do you feel when your birthday approaches? I have a friend who just recently turned 50 years old. She told me she was so depressed at the thought of turning 50, that she cried all night before her 50th birthday.

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.

Don’t Worry, Be Happy!

July 18, 2013

I won’t break out in song and dance, but there’s a lot behind this simple phrase: Don’t Worry, Be Happy! How many of us spend so much of our waking hours worried about something? How much energy do we expend thinking and being overly concerned about someone?

What are your passions? It’s so important to spend time doing what you are passionate about. When you are in the present moment, immersed in something you love, you can’t help but experience pure bliss! You find yourself smiling and overcome with joy!

One of my passions is being on water or having the presence of water near me. I must have been born a water baby! Water inspires me. I love everything water related: walking along beaches by oceans and bays, swimming in lakes, or sitting and writing by a creek or river. The first summer I arrived in Vancouver, I learned to sail, windsurf, and dragonboat. I absolutely loved sailing and dragonboating, and eventually raced competitively for many years. I later developed a passion for racing outriggers and kayaking too.

I don’t believe in coincidences. As a true believer in the power of intent, and as a beloved child of God and the Universe, all that occurs in my life happens for a reason. I don’t believe in luck, only blessings. I know every person and creature is placed in my life for a specific purpose. Every situation is a learning experience. Everything happens for my own good. My life is a continuous evolution of self-growth. Having this knowledge and insight, I wake up every morning with enthusiasm, ready to face anything and anyone that wanders onto my life path. I remain curious as to the life lesson for the day and grateful for the beauty that God will reveal to me.
