Digital Detox

Hi everyone. I am thinking of holding some day retreats at Pennybridge. I am trying to do some market research. I was thinking something like 9:00 am to 5:00 pm to come and enjoy the facilities i.e. pool, sauna, steam room, tennis court, and gym. Brunch and afternoon tea would be provided. This would be…

The Here and Now

I love waterskiing. Part of the reason I love it so much is that it feeds my adrenaline addiction in a positive way. I love being completely focussed and giving my all to achieve a goal. It is the most incredible feeling. I have many goals in life and some are harder to achieve than…

What is Resilience?

Resilience is the ability to cope with and rise to the inevitable challenges, problems and set-backs you meet in the course of your life, and come back stronger from them. I had a conversation with a friend yesterday about resilience. I must admit I have never used this word and had to look up its…

Why?

I took this shot of Camber Sands yesterday. There is something about the ocean which is so peaceful. I have woken up this morning to the horrible news that there has been another terror attack in London last night. I am so sad. Sad for the world, sad for our children  and sad for each…

Strong and Stable Like a Rock

I love rocks. Whenever I go on a road trip in Canada I stop at all the creeks and look at the beautiful scenery and feel grateful for my life. Funny that rocks could have so much meaning for me. I suppose they could also be a metaphor for something more. We often say that…

The Power of Nurturing and Intuition

For the last three weekends I have worked with my friend and we have planted flowers all around my house. I feel like my house is surrounded with love. I have this incredible sense of joy each time I look outside and see all the little beings that I am responsible for. By nurturing them I…

Live in Peace

Life is about making choices. In order to create the life we want we have to make the right choices. Our choices need to reflect our values. Values can change depending on our goals. Our goals help us envision what it is we want and allow us to strive each day to move forward in…

Home Is Where the Heart Is

I have come home. I have had many homes, but there is one place in the world that touches my heart. It is this place. It is where I grew up as a teenager. It is called Valemount, the valley in the mountains. My teenage years were challenging, but at the same time life changing….

Mind, Body, and Spirit

Another year has passed. It has been an interesting one full of uncertainty, but on the plus side there has been lots of personal growth in mind, body, and spirit. Last year, at this time, I was with my Mum, John and Max. We had a lovely Christmas together. The children  were with Richard. They…

Talking from Experience

Having lived my own personal brexit, I was shocked last Friday when I saw that the UK voted to leave the EU. I have come to terms with it now. I accept the democratic vote and feel proud of the bravery and courage it took to stand up for what the majority decided was right…

Food for Your Soul

If you know me you know my chicken noodle soup. It is a staple in my household. It is filled with lots of good things, but most of all, it is filled with love. The recipe for my chicken noodle soup is mine. It is so simple. In fact, it is not a recipe at…

Food Glorious Food!

FOOD!! What does that word mean to you? Does it create happy memories of time spent with family and friends or does it create stress in your mind and butterflies in your stomach? Food has become a controversial subject and this is quite sad really. Food can and should create happy memories. Even if you…
