You’re The Best Around

I’ve met a lot of inspirational people in my life. The calibre of people out there doing extraordinary things without recognition is astonishing. Yes, there are plenty of paid professionals out there doing amazing things but this shoutout is for the unsung heroes. The mamas, papas, wives, husbands, brothers, sisters, children, neighbours, aunts and unclesContinue reading “You’re The Best Around”

I’m Still Standing

If you’ve been following my blog long enough, you know I’m a huge advocate for mental health and how it has impacted my life since Paul’s accident in 2016. Just about everyone I know has suffered with some form of mental health issue, whether they’re aware of it or not. I grew up in aContinue reading “I’m Still Standing”

Stand By You

Caring for someone you love is really freakin’ hard. It’s not just the physical day to day activities that I’m talking about. It’s the emotional and mental drain that presents itself in your brain.

So I mustered up a couple of theContinue reading “You’ve Got A Friend”

High Hopes

I didn’t think I was going the end the year writing about the year that was, but here I am. Writer’s block is a thing. I don’t know how many attempts I have made to recap a shitty year, probably because I don’t really want to relive it. So as I sit here on DecemberContinue reading “High Hopes”

Shake a Leg

I always thought Paul should have been a Police Officer. Those that know the old Paul well should be laughing hysterically at that admission. But my husband was a backseat driver and wouldn’t hesitate to let me know if I was going even a single kilometre over the speed limit. It got worse as heContinue reading “Shake a Leg”

Raising Resilience- Part 1

“Raising children is the easiest thing in the world.” – No one, EVER. My girls are my world but they are also the reason why an entire bottle of wine is better than just a glass. They are the reason for yet another grey hair on my head and why my blood pressure is moreContinue reading “Raising Resilience- Part 1”
