Blessed Virgin! Did you see what she was at with the rosary beads?

Ok, so the title was a bit of a joke...sort of. My friend and I were speaking in jest when I told her about my new use for rosary beads. :)

(Having being raised in catholic homes, in Newfoundland, we could both appreciate the...

Why I Think we Should Stop the Fight Against Bullying

Posted on October 13, 2012 at 1:05 PM Comments comments (0)

In light of recent news events both provincially and nationally I could not let this go by without commenting.....


News stories, Facebook pages, emails....all about bullying and its devastating effects. But will it matter? Does it make a difference?

How about too little too late, in my humble opinion! Lives are lost, self esteem void, dreams shattered......all that is l...

Mindful Eating and My Lenten Challenge

Posted on February 24, 2012 at 9:05 AM Comments comments (0)

As they say, the Lord works in mysterious ways and boy has He been working overtime on me this week!

Yesterday I had one of those rare bad days. It was just an emotional, lonely, bad day. I was aware of it, yet for some reason was unable to pull myself back. I prayed though, a lot throughout the day and made it to bed time in one piece. I just kept telling myself that I just have to make it to bedtime and tomorrow will be a better day. We all have them and I am n...

What would Shrove Tuesday be without a post about tempation? As we enter the season of Lent, many people choose to either take up something or give up something as is often custom for some Christians. 

We all know that the Bible is riddled with stories and lessons...

How I Got Rid of my Good 'Ole Catholic Guilt

Posted on January 26, 2012 at 10:00 AM Comments comments (2)

As I posted in my last entry, I grew up in a Catholic family; both my Mother and Father are Catholic. So I came by my guilt honestly. They didn't do it on purpose, it is just a natural consuquence of growing up in the church- atleast it was for me.

I learned about sins and lots of them. How to repent. How to confess. How to ask for forgiveness. And to pray.

I will never forget the feeling of making my first reconciliation. At that ti...

I am not sure if anyone will actually read thisbut here I go....

Yesterday I deactivated BOTH of my Facebook accounts (which is why I am not sure if anyone will read this.....), and subsequently my business page. I am sure that I will be back as I realize just how important a tool this is for me, especially with my isolated, geographical location; but it was necessary for the time being.

I need some more focused time; and being home all day and ...

The Next Step in my Journey.....No Holds Barred

Posted on January 15, 2012 at 3:15 PM Comments comments (0)

So I can honestly say that I have proved to myself and probably to many of you, that finding a healthy balance in terms of my fitness and nutrition was a win. I was quite happy with what I did in competition prep considering the time and effort that I put in.

But....I must be honest; something has been bothering me ever since. Well, I don't know if bothering is the right word..... something has been pushing me to move forward.

I felt a need to blog has been a little while. But I didn't really know what to blog about, the past week was a little nuts in fact. With Colton's 5th birthday it had an impact on my own "balance" and my competition preparation. But as soon as I took the time to stop and think about what was going on that got me off track I had no problem figuring things out and deciding which way to go to get things moving along again.


There is one aspect of wellness that ...
