Maybe I can't solve poverty or even come up with a solution to this awful plague that is poverty; but I can share this documentary that helps shed light on this important topic. Knowledge is power; I hope that if we share this information with enough people, that a movement will happen to help us all find balance.

...makes me smile:-)

So I was getting my mail, and as I opened my mailbox an envelop fell in my hand; I read: "Look inside for valuable coupons!" then I thought to myself : "hmmm, I will!" I then realized how much of a deal seaker I am. I collects points from everywhere and I reap the benefits! ;-) I get 'optimum points' and get a makeup shopping frenzy; I get Airmiles and always get movie passes; I collect 'Esso points' and get gift-cards; I collect 'La Senza' points and get free panties :-) I go on and get all kinds of different samples...Those are little easy things that I do for myself to make me smile!

MOVEMBER in Canada!

I love this movement! From some of my teammates to co-workers and even a lady at Second Cup sporting a fake large Moustache, people are really going all out growing mustaches in efforts raise money to promote Men Health. In Canada the money raised goes towards the number one male cancer, Prostate Cancer Canada.


Don't silence the signing Bus Driver!

The siging Bus Driver is a legend in Ottawa. He addressess the passengers as ladies and gentlemen and makes everybody's day brighter! But as in many things in life some people constently get out of bed on the wrong side and seem to want to either spread negativity or make others miserable... the mayor of Ottawa received a "series of complaints' (which is a big total of 12 complaints...)  and decided to silence the legend because condoning his behavior would apparently create a 'free-for-all' on the bus....C'mon mayor are you serious!

Lucky for us the signing bus driver, Yves Roy, applies his positivity to his entire life, here are his thoughts on the matter:

“I was shocked that they hadn’t told me yet. They had people who want peace and quiet, some say I scream, that I can’t keep a tune. But I have many commendations that came at the same time and lots of verbal compliments of people who tell me to keep it up, pat me on the shoulder, and tell me I made their day.”

 Thank you Yves for your beautiful tunes and gracious smile - just knowing there are people like you in this world is a ray of sunshine by itself! Another great example of passionate people ;-)

Funny Challenge: tell your kids you ate their halloween candies!

this is hilarious!

finally peace between ALI and JOE FRAZIER....

There was a time when Muhammad Ali taunted Joe Frazier relentlessly, called him ugly and challenged his manhood.
After his old rival died Monday night, Ali had nothing but kind words for Smokin' Joe.
"The world has lost a great champion. I will always remember Joe with respect and admiration," Ali said in a short statement. "My sympathy goes out to his family and loved ones."
Frazier died at 67 after a brief battle with liver cancer. He and Ali will be linked forever, both heavyweight champions and bitter enemies in the boxing ring who squared off in three epic fights from 1971-75.
Frazier won the first one at Madison Square Garden in the Fight of the Century. Ali took the last two, cementing his legend as The Greatest.
Outside the ring, Ali called Frazier a gorilla and mocked him as an Uncle Tom. Between the ropes, they nearly fought to the death in the Thrilla in Manila.
Those became the most poignant and defining moments of Frazier's fantastic career. But he also was the only American fighter to win a gold medal in the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo. He was the heavyweight champ from February 1970 to January 1973, an era when that crown truly meant something. He was beloved as an adopted son of Philadelphia, embodying the city's blue-collar grit.
And when the last round of his final fight ended Monday night, reaction to Frazier's death poured in from every corner of the sports world.
"Good night Joe Frazier. I love you dear friend," former heavyweight champion George Foreman, who stopped Frazier to win the title, posted to his Twitter account.

I would love to have taken THIS photograph!

I absolutely adore horses - that is why I truly envy the person who had the opportunity not only to view this beautiful sight but also capture it on camera!

New beginning!

Well, I have written in a while; I was really busy and had alot on my mind...

A new chapter is definately opening! I cannot believe the changes that occured in my life, in myself in these last months. I have to say it wasen't pleasant at first; I felt so lost, confused and frustrated. But I really took all the help and resources available to me and made the most of it. The final product is a new and improved me. I feel better I can think clearer and I definately have a new take on life. I use to really push to get at a new stage in my carrer and found only frustrations. It hard to handle when you give it your all and you push no matter what to have no positive results (or feedback) I now understand that success dosent equal happiness - but that striving to be happy will eventually bring success (I guess I had the equation wrong...I was never good at math;-) I have now cut ties with certain people (...ok with my work) and I know better things will come along. I hope this lesson stays with me forever; strive for happiness, the rest will come.

Some of the things I do on a daily basis is my fours agreements first thing in the morning (be imppecable with my words, don't take things personally, don't assume anything and always do my best) it really helps me stay focused and positive. At night, I think of all the things I was grateful in my day. I feel really good doign this and I truly hope to be consistent enough to keep doing for the rest of my life.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all the people who supported me in this 'messed-up' phases I went through. I got such great feedback about this blog, about my thoughts and about how I has taking the time I needed to take care of myself. I have great family and friends and I am very grateful for that. I know I am blessed and I hope to give back in my life as much as I have received;-)
