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.

What are your goals for the new year? As we enter into the new year, many of us set goals. While I like to set goals at the beginning of the year, I do so only after spending quiet time reflecting on the past year.

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.

Be Kind To Yourself!

How often are you your own worst enemy? Do you judge yourself harshly? Do you come down on yourself when you think you’ve made a “mistake?” Please don’t! Love yourself enough to be kind to yourself.

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.
