It’s an incredibly amazing feeling, knowing exactly what you want and how to get it. Having goals and a purpose to your life, giving you reason to get up each and every day is amazing! When you don’t have goals or purpose, life can be overwhelming. Sometimes, it can seem pointless. It’s like you don’t even know what the point is in going on. This was me a few years ago. I struggled to get

The truth we won’t admit to ourselves

There is no greater battle in life than the battle between the part of you that wants to be healed and the parts of you that are comfortable and content remaining broken – Iyanla VanZant @Super Soul Sunday I saw this quote pop up the other day following a recent Super Soul Sunday interview with Iyanla Van Zant. It shot out and hit me hard as I read the words and was reminded yet again
“A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.” I’ve seen this quote many times in the past and thought it was very true but this week, as I took the ferry home over some very rough seas, I got thinking more about it. I thought about the pilot of the boat and how skilled he must be to ensure we didn’t capsize as the waves thrashed us about ferociously. I thought about what got him

How The Universe Caught My Attention

Posted by Britenay on February 2, 2018
Have you ever had one of those moments where it seems like everything going on around you is aimed directly at you? Like it’s the universe trying to tell you a message? I had a moment like that this week. And it was almost a bit scary. I was co-facilitating a learning session, discussing topics such as stress, resiliency and wellbeing. During one of the discussions, one of the participants shared a recent story with

Take Two

Posted by Ashlee Spencer on January 30, 2018
I have a problem with New Year’s resolutions and this is why… Every year, we get hit with the “New Year, New Me” posts, the “This year is my year!”, and then in late January these sentiments are followed up by “January was just the trial month…” PLEASE stop putting “Use By” dates on your dreams. Every year, month, day, hour, minute, second is a chance to start over. If you want to make a change

Road less travelled

Posted by Britenay on January 26, 2018
Have you ever listened to a song and realised it is speaking to your heart like no other has? This happened to me this morning. As I listened to the song, “Road less travelled” by Lauren Alaina (yes, I love country music). I listened long and hard to the words coming through my headphones. “You won’t make yourself a name if you follow the rules” was what first caught my attention. I never set out

“There is no force equal to a woman determined to rise” If I’ve learned one thing in my years, it’s that there is much truth to this quote. When a woman knows clearly what she wants, there really is nothing that will stand in her way. In starting this blog, I had the aspiration of creating a place where people could connect, share inspiration and be more empowered. I hoped that in the blog posts

Beginner’s guide to negativity

Posted by Britenay on January 5, 2018
There sure is a lot of negativity online. Often in the form of people voicing their opinions. Some people (trolls) just like to stir trouble. And some, it seems, just like to complain because they love the drama. Lately, I’ve noticed a lot of people posting about their frustrations at the amount of negativity online and it brought me to question what’s really the cause of it. Is there really that many people out there
