Music with a Message Series Episode 1: Gotta Be Me

Music with a Message Series Episode 1: Gotta Be Me

We’re all wandering around on this planet trying to do our best and we all have our own individual experience… and we are all connected! You’re not alone in any fear or doubt or anxiety or grief you feel. We are all having some kind of a human experience on the planet right now, so on some level we get each other and we are each other. In other words, I’m a little like you and you’re a little like me.

How to Expand through Unexpected Outcomes

How to Expand through Unexpected Outcomes

I won’t get into making goals for yourself because I’ve published articles on that already. I will say that it’s still important to set goals for ourselves. What if you knew that every moment of every day presents you with new life, new opportunities, and literally brand new cells in your body? That is all #truth. And it’s one principle that has helped me get through the tragedy of my son being taken from me by gun violence. Here’s what you need to know when you set important goals, and when the outcomes are nothing like what you hoped...

How to Hold Space for Grief, Love and You

How to Hold Space for Grief, Love and You

My journey with grief began when I was just 15. We all grieve differently and every loss is different. Sudden violent deaths are way up there on the devastation meter, whereas death by natural causes can be not as difficult to deal with. But again it depends on who you are, your life experiences and how you deal with hardship and heartbreak. I know grief can be confusing and hard to manage. Please don’t deal with it alone. Find friends, or maybe an organization, therapist, counsellor, elder… whoever feels right for you.

What to Do When Life’s Surprises Kick Your Ass

What to Do When Life’s Surprises Kick Your Ass

I don’t know about you but sometimes it feels like life is kicking my ass. The past 3 months have been mostly a living hell for me. I kind of knew this was going to happen, because losing a child to murder leaves you with court, the media, unanswered questions and unbelievable grief. Since it’s been beyond my control and very foreign to me, I had no idea what was in store for me. It’s true that the only thing we can control is ourselves – our choices, responses, actions, thoughts, and how we choose to live, given whatever circumstances we have at any moment.

Why Resolutions Fail and What to Do Instead

Why Resolutions Fail and What to Do Instead

Resolutions. To do or not to do? What to do instead? New Year’s Resolutions rarely work, because they are based on peer pressure, which is based our innate instinct to fit in and belong. What if you make this year about what you desire, about self-celebration and commitment to YOU? What if you create an action plan that works for you and build in supports and resources to help you if self-sabotage comes up? Here's how to create a year of accomplishment, success and happiness...

How to Create Light in Difficult Times

How to Create Light in Difficult Times

Chronic pain, grief, loss, heartbreak and stress affect a lot of us in different ways. On top of that, winter can be challenging to get through, especially here in eastern Canada where we experience all 4 seasons (and sometimes all 4 in the same day lol!). With Winter Solstice coming up, the Sun will soon bring us more light each day, but even then, we have a lot of cloudy days, and difficulties can sometimes seem to take over our lives.
