Edgar

Edgar

We are not supposed to go down into the darkness of the core. Yet, if we can risk it, the something born of that nothing is the beginning of truth.” —Adrienne Rich

Readers, it was time to write about Edgar. My heart feels strangely lighter. A great weight has been lifted from my soul. Still, I couldn’t have written this story any earlier because my level of self-security was too low— and my thoughts about what happened took decades to coalesce. I wasn’t ready to confess to having so much shame either. Shame prefers to remain silent, and tiptoe around the attic like a reclusive ghost. Shame never comes downstairs to eat with everyone. Shame places you inside an invisible garbage bag, and everything that you are feels like it belongs in a dumpster—permanently. Also, the silence of deep shame is always at war with the possibilities for healing.

What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?

What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?

I am reaaaally excited to announce a new partnership today. This is everything I stand for as a career woman, mother, daughter and friend.

You know what that is…

Goal getting.

Passion chasing.

Finally, getting off the fence and making that forgotten dream a reality.

When ECA® (Education Corporation of America®) approached me and asked me if my female readers know that many schools exist across America and online whereby they can persevere and pursue higher education while working, while mothering, my answer was, I am not sure all of them do!

The Intimate Relationship Between Women and Alcohol

Just how bad was my drinking?

For years, it probably looked like yours: racing in from a long day at work, my arms full of groceries, I would pour myself a glass of wine to sip while I chopped vegetables and oversaw a little homework. Put something in the oven, top up the glass of wine. Refresh it for dinner, and switch to tea.

Right In Your Own Backyard

Right In Your Own Backyard

Peace and serenity can be found in your own backyard. Literally.

You don’t need to take a plane, and you don’t need to leave the comforts of your own surroundings. You just have to create it for yourself. It’s 7:30am. Sun is rising. Whole family is asleep upstairs. Reading the paper, sipping coffee, trying to build my own bliss. Happy Saturday. #FindYourBliss #SelfCare

5 Tips To Improve Time Management, Productivity and Organization!

5 Tips To Improve Time Management, Productivity and Organization!

Have you heard of TIME BLOCKING?

This morning’s Global TV segment was on a topic that I love – getting organized and effectively managing your time. And it came about as a result of a work/life balance evening I led last week. I gave a workshop to 25 men and women, and the biggest struggles shared by both the men and women alike, are the ability to manage their time, maximize both their work day and personal life, avoid distractions and interruptions, and be productive with their hours. I thought it might make a good segment after I saw the challenges most of us face.

Take a look, and share your best tips with us below! 🙂

Spring has sprung! I couldn’t be happier.

When spring arrives, it signals that summer is around the corner. For many, summer is a wonderful time to travel and explore a new city, try a new adventure. Anyone have wanderlust? I’m guilty.

What I Learned On My 42nd Birthday

What I Learned On My 42nd Birthday

On Friday April 7th, I celebrated my birthday by sharing the day with 120 women in my first-ever conference, Off The Fence & WISE. Off The Fence & WISE became the collaboration of two Montreal empowerment brands: Women On The Fence and Wise Women Canada. The day was happy, it was funny, it was heavy, it was dark, it was uplifting, it was spirited. And it surpassed my greatest expectations.
