“Let’s talk about sex baby”… That song was such an anthem in the 90’s and yet I don’t know if it helped women talk about sex. As I get older I’m becoming more comfortable with being myself.  Which means not conforming to who others think I am supposed to be, and instead figuring out what matters to me. Today’s everyday Inspiration is brought to you from the Tumblr page “How to make me come.”  A collection of anonymous essays on…

I love art and an artist’s ability to transform a blank page into something beautiful.  I came across this illustration here.  It spoke to me and I saw… being powerful beyond measure but feeling trapped by that and then releasing your power or dreams into the world. Today’s post is a reminder to not die with our dreams inside of us, instead lets release them into the world so they burn bright. The beauty of art is that it is speaks…

Each and every day we need to put ourselves first on the list and spend some time working on being our best selves.  How can we enrich and improve our own lives without carving out the necessary time.  It is important to take a moment to sit in gratitude and reflection.   I often read words of inspiration from Dr. Wayne Dyer and was surprised to find out he passed away over the weekend.  Since Dr. Dyer was such an inspiration…

A little inspiration.

When I look at my daughter and her natural interests I have the urge to document them in the event that she should need a reminder when she gets older.  Often as we get older, the world tells us who we should be and we learn to tune out our own inner voice. I am inspired by this little human every day.  She is patient, kind, loving and an amazing artist at seven years old.  As parents it is important…

“Representation in the fictional world signifies social existence; absence means symbolic annihilation.” (Gerbner & Gross, 1976, p. 182) Imagine for a moment that you are 5 years old and you are about to get your first doll, however none of the dolls in the store look like you.  Your eyes go from doll to doll but not one looks like you.  Yet this is not anything new to you because the people on T.V for the most part do not…

I love, love, love, to bake.  I have always found cooking and baking to be very relaxing and of course the delicious results make it all the more enticing.  However recently I’ve been looking for healthy and yet delicious options to incorporate into my new eating plan.  I came across this recipe from Little Spice Jar and adapted it to suit more of what I was looking for. (less sugar and preservative free)  This muffin is super moist and not too sweet…

Ordinary Heroes

  Heroes, they walk amongst us and they look like me and they look like you.  These everyday heroes have no costumes or capes but they share a common bond; they simply care about others more than they care about themselves. “I slept and I dreamed that life is all joy. I woke and I saw that life is all service. I served and I saw that service is joy.” Khalil Gibran I have always loved Humans of New York; if…

I’ve never truly lived like I was going to die tomorrow.  This might sound like a strange thing to say because it’s often seen as morbid to discuss death and dying.  I guess when you’re young you feel like you’ll live forever and you can’t picture yourself getting old.  However as I get older and the people I know and love start to pass away, my eyes have been opened so to speak as to how short life is. Recently…

I have been working towards getting myself back in shape after having a baby and honestly my exercise routine has been all over the place.  However, I’ve been working hard on tracking what I eat and trying to reduce my meat consumption and so far I’ve lost about 4lbs.  A little while ago I picked up Canadian Living: The Vegetarian Collection Cookbook from my local Chapters.  Its been my go to source for meatless dinner options and I thought why not…
