Were some of you freaking out last Friday when they were forecasting snow for this coming Wednesday? I remember it being such a beautiful sunny day and thinking why on earth aren’t people enjoying this amazing weather instead of focusing on what might or might not happen 5 days from now? Now obviously, there is […]

I had read a lot about detoxes and the Glow juice cleanse in particular and was curious to try the experience. I chose the Glow brand first because the juices are organic but […]

Embrace the F-word

Last night, I taught my first yoga session. Despite loving yoga, taking classes almost every day and doing my teacher training since January, I had been procrastinating teaching it. Why had I been putting this off? Because of a nasty four-letter word that is present in all our lives but often goes unnoticed. A sneaky […]

Cultivating patience and inner peace

During my yoga teacher training class, I was chatting with a fellow trainee about the fact that, as driven women, we have lost the art of cultivating patience. We tend to live in the “doing” rather than the “being”. We have places to go, people to see and goals to reach. In addition to this, […]

Why failure is part of success

falling out of posture

It’s funny how life can sometimes be quite persistent in sending you certain lessons. This morning, I found the above quote on Facebook. Later on, when I opened my 365 days of inspiration book to see what today’s quote was, I found this: I have learned that success is to be measured not so much […]

Become your true self. It’s what you are meant to  do during your time here and any spend spent not living an authentic life is a day wasted. When I quit my job, I received an influx of positive feedback. People were excited by the new adventure I was embarking on and they wanted to […]

This quote by Diane Arbus reminds me of the joys we can experience when stepping outside our comfort zone: “My favourite thing is to go where I’ve never been.” If you take this word-for-word you could say “Sure! I love travelling and discovering new countries!” But what about going somewhere you’ve never been from a […]

Si vous me permettez, je vais écrire le billet d’aujourd’hui en français. Il concerne une personne qui a été une grande source d’inspiration dans ma vie et ce que j’ai à témoigner semble vouloir sortir dans la langue de Molière pour une raison quelconque. Au cours de ma carrière, j’ai eu la chance de côtoyer […]

Oh the war of art… It’s a constant a interior battle. How can something so wonderful and magical like art and creativity also be a struggle? It all depends on your intentions and expectations. I had been reflecting on my blog this week, on how it has been evolving (i.e. obsessing about analytics and audience […]

Today’s inspirational quote is by Carl Jung and is about footwear (in a metaphorical way): “The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.” My interpretation of this is that what makes one person happy might make another person miserable. Everyone has their own individual path and […]

I have a confession to make: I am a commitment-phobe. I don’t like things that lock me down into having to do something every day. That’s probably one of the reasons I waited so long to launch my blog. I knew that once you put it out there, people expect updates on a regular basis. That […]

A friend of mine posted a question on Facebook this morning which lead me to another question which then lead me to this Gwen Stefani video. His question: Am I surviving or living? Good question to which I suggested going one step further: Are you surviving or THRIVING? I think that if you feel like you […]
