New Year Inspirations

Inspiration can come from anywhere and anything. From the look in a loved one’s eyes. From the sun setting early on a cold winter day. From a message. From a smile. Inspiration can come from anywhere and anything. As a writer I am drawn to the things that inspire me to jot an idea in my journal, or to sit in my bed with these keys under my fingertips typing a story or just a line, representing a time in my life that inspired me. I had many inspirations in 2017, and I have loved sharing them with you via this blog and in my podcast BrainStorm. It’s been a wonderful experience sharing my thoughts with the hope that maybe, just maybe, my words will inspire someone too.

I do enjoy the refection that New Year’s Eve inspires. How it entices this social media generation to make the best photo collage for Instagram, in order to share the memories they have acquired over the year through selfies and catchy text-fonts. I am guilty of doing the same. It’s nice to be able to review the moments that brought smiles to our faces.

I don’t like to put too much pressure on myself with New Year’s resolutions. To me January 1st is simply another day bearing potential inspirations. Beautiful inspirations that I could never even imagine. Just living works best for me. Yes, plans are a part of life, but my life lives one day at a time.

Wishing you a January 1st filled with inspirations to spread love and kindness.

A Little ‘Good Thing, Bad Thing’

Good thing- went for a mini vacation to Vancouver

Bad thing- got a flat tire on the way to the airport

Good thing- made it to the airport with said flat tire (I didn’t notice it at first – don’t judge me) without getting into an accident

Bad thing- My rental car got a window chip

Good thing- I have insurance

Bad thing- I also have a $500 deductible

Good thing- we made it onto both flights as a standby (Caroline works for WestJet – super cheap tickets but you have to go standby)

Bad thing- the girl next to me kept dozing off towards my shoulder and it made me wonder what the airplane etiquette is in this situation – do I wake her up? Or just let her sleep on my shoulder? (Any feedback would be appreciated)

Good thing- I have CAA

Bad thing- I felt like a ding-dong not knowing how to change a tire myself

Good thing- my kids said I am the best mom in the world for taking them on a trip and that they are going to buy me a gold necklace and a Ferrari (ok – I’m paraphrasing)

Looking Towards The Future

On this episode of BrainStorm: I share my thoughts on envisioning the future and how that can be difficult for people with mental illness and injury.
