A very full day and some cool things happened too!

I'm not sure if I've mentioned it yet but I'm taking a photography course and the pic above was from an assignment we had to do. We had to experiment with different shutter speeds and moving objects and this was my favorite from the series I took! It took me two years to actually commit and register in this course and I'm absolutely loving it--things are finally making sense.

AND--the really cool thing that happened is that I was featured in Canadian Business Online today. Well, not me necessarily but my business! Check out the link below.
Life is good!

Some days are easier than others...

Today was just one of those days where things didn't really roll smoothly and I have to admit, IT GOT TO ME! I had an appointment at the bank with a business adviser and had to bring Jake with me which I imagined wouldn't be a big deal. I'd bring a few toys and Jake would play nicely in the office while I "talked business". NOPE. Instead, Jake threw a full-fledged tantrum in the middle of the hallway and people came out to stare, I mean close their doors. Nothing says "professional" like bringing your toddler to a business appointment--lesson learned! You may ask, why didn't you just get someone to watch him??? My answer: LIKE WHO???

It's experiences like these that are clearly helping me realize I need to start asking for help or paying for help. More on that later. Luckily, a trip to the store to get some "puddle boots" helped make everything right in the world for all of us. Thank you Mat

Life is definitely feeling FULL these days and between being a WAHM (I just learned this acronym, it means Work At Home Mom) and planning a fantastic new workshop in Calgary for expectant couples and starting a group coaching program for moms in April, I'm also 6 months pregnant and living in a small state of chaos in a rental home while our real home undergoes massive renovations. I'M LEARING TO BREATHE AND TAKE ONE STEP AT A TIME...because that's all I can really do, right? My life is an adventure. I choose to see it that way AND I also choose to make it that way. How are you choosing to see and live your life?

"It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power."
Alan Cohen

I like this quote--it seems quite fitting for my life right now. I haven't posted for a while but that's what happens when your WHOLE family gets the flu for a week. It wasn't pretty around here-trust me. But back to the real topic. CHANGE. Change is an absolute constant in my life. I've always embraced change and looked forward to it. I've created it in my life even if I didn't need to. I've always looked at change as something positive, to me it's about growing, stretching oneself, and learning. However, what I'm discovering is that along with change one requires rest, or, at least I do. For me, change typically involves some sort of physical effort but the more tiring part is all of the thinking and mental processing that goes along with change. My mind needs a break! So, this week I'm taking one. What do you want to change? What do you need a break from? Whatever it is, it starts with you. Create it!
