I am Stronger…

As a teenager I used to wish my life was “normal” I would have given my two front teeth for “normal”. Truth is, I had a very hard childhood and wanted nothing more than to be like other children. To have no worries other than whether mom and dad would let me go out and play with my friends. It used to make me angry and I blamed them at the time, not fully understanding the situation. This anger followed my well into my twenties until I decided to deal with it. Now I want anything but normal. to me normal is boring. You don’t learn from normal.  I realize that the tough times I went though as a teenager



I used to believe that it was the amount of friends you had, that made you popular, it meant that you were well liked. It was a good feeling wasn’t it? Even though I was never popular in high school, in fact I was considered part of the “weird” crowd I was always surrounded by my friends. Now, I find as as I grow older, my views on friendship has changed quite a bit. In fact I view friendships the same way I do relationships. It is all part and parcel of the same thing. I have quite a few less friends as I did but, the ones I have lift me up, encourage me to be the best I can, and and call me out when I am


“Negative” Emotions used in a Positive Way

Many people think that some emotions such as anger, fear, grief, worry and and sadness are negative and we must try to our best to avoid them. In truth, every emotion, positive or negative are good for us to a certain degree. Anger is our motivator, it gets us moving. It is what makes us decide to leave our current jobs, our relationships, to change our situation for the better. But too much anger, or anger that is not expressed becomes explosive. In my generation, children were told to be good, be quiet, be calm. We were never encouraged to express our anger in a healthy way. Which is why so many of us bottle it up and we become sick because of

From Victim to Victor

This is the most recent book I have read, written by my very own mother. I must say I am so proud of her. It is a book about healing the scars from childhood sexual abuse, her journey into a five year depression, and her healing along the way. Being a Christian herself, the book is largely based on the bible readings she has found that have helped her heal. I know my mother, though all she has been through, has held onto her faith and I truly believe this is what go her to where she is now. She once said to me “What is the point of going through the trama if you don’t turn around and use your experiences

Benefits of Pregnancy Massage

There are so many benefits to pregnancy massage that a new mom can enjoy, as long a you have talked to your doctor to get the go ahead. I have treated women from the time they find out they are pregnant to a day or two before they give birth. What to Expect – First Trimester There are many woman that believe that getting treatment in the first trimester can be harmful to the baby but this isn’t true as long as you go to someone that is trained in pregnancy massage. Always ask when booking your appointment just to be sure. Usually you will still be able to lie on your stomach to receive your massage just like you would normally.


Being Present In The Moment

Life has become so busy. Long hours at work, rushing home to make dinner, spending time with the family and then opening up the laptop to finish off the days work. Dropping into bed totally exhausted knowing that we have to do it all again tomorrow. When did we stop being present in the moment? Not looking to the past and regretting the mistakes we have made, and not looking to the future striving for something that always seems just out of reach. How can we even begin to find joy if we are always focused on what was or what will be. Joy is found by being present in the moment. Embracing what life has presented us, instead of
