A Time for Reflection

Resolutions aren’t my thing. Having said that though, I can’t deny the end of the year as a great time for reflection…that is, reflection on what the last year has brought, and with that, hopes and goals for the future.
Looking back on 2012 and ahead to the New Year, I have many thoughts.Here is a short list, in no order of priority, of just a few personal promises this time inspires. In 2013 I am looking forward to:

From me to you

All the best for a very Merry Christmas!

Looking Back to Look Forward

So I started this blogging thing a year ago today. It had been a while coming and now that it’s more than 100 blog posts later, I can’t believe how quickly the time has passed and that I've had so much to say.

What a Twit: Part III

If you've been reading my blog for a while you know that I am a Twitter user. This is the third instalment of my latest favourite tweets from the past few months...a bit of humour, cycling, photography and inspiration for good measure...

As I sit with a fresh cup of coffee enjoying the newspaper, I reflect on the small stuff we look forward to and enjoy in any given day or week. For some this may be a yoga class, for others drinks with friends, a poker game, a movie...and so much more.

10 Things I Miss about Childhood

Recently when shopping at the grocery store, I came across Dad’s old- fashioned oatmeal cookies. Seeing these immediately took me back to my childhood and I happily bought them hoping to relive some of the good memories I associate with these tasty treats. This got me thinking about some of the other things I miss about my childhood. 
Here are some of them:

My Favourite Causes

The other day I wrote about how to choose a charitable cause to support. If you’re looking for inspiration, or a new cause, I'd like to share some of my favourites, understanding that poverty and health are what I feel most passionately about. And though I’ve written about some of these organizations here before, it seems a good time for a round up of options you can consider.

Choosing your Cause

At this time of year, people swarm malls, battling each other and frantically buying presents for all those on their list. Regardless of how stressful it may be and how little those on the list may need what they’re being gifted, the cycle continues year in and year out. This year, I ask you to consider an alternative. There are many ways you can still acknowledge those you care for, while making a difference to those in real need.
