International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day is March 8. It is a time for us to come together to celebrate the achievements of women. It is also a time to acknowledge the inequities that have existed and still for women: in homes, in workplaces, and in society. It is a time to acknowledge our biases and move towardContinue reading “International Women’s Day”

#Oneword 2021

While I do not usually commit to New Year’s Resolutions per se, I’ve typically chosen one word to focus on for the year. Some of these words I have shared, blogged about and published for all to read. For other words, I have chosen to keep them, and the associated blog post, private in myContinue reading “#Oneword 2021”

It’s the Little Things

Wow! 2020. What a year. What a time. What a journey. It’s fair to say that this time in the year 2020 is very challenging for many people. I would add that right now is particularly challenging for those of us who work in education. We are in a Global Pandemic. The number of Covid-19Continue reading “It’s the Little Things”

Self-Compassion

COVID-19 (not to mention all the other life challenges we all face). Need I say more? Inevitably, life has challenging times. That is a given and to be expected. While there were predictions of a pandemic happening in the future at some point, what was not expected, was it happening now. For the past 6Continue reading “Self-Compassion”

Noticing

It’s been a long time since I wrote my last blog post, and even longer since I did so regularly. Today, I finally feel ready to start to blog again. A little. I’ve missed it. As a way to begin, and to share part of my healing journey, I’m going to start with a roughContinue reading “Noticing”

Finding Meaning and Passion

On February 24, 2018, I was at the beginning of making a pretty big decision in my life. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve made some pretty big decisions in my life, particularly in the last 4 years or so, but this one was equally important on my journey of healing and road toward striving toContinue reading “Finding Meaning and Passion”

One Word 2018 – Perspective

Happy 2018! What a year 2017 was. A large part of 2017 was filled with anxiety, apprehension, and worry surrounding a health issue. In turn, this year was also filled with a great deal of personal reflection. In the personal reflection, many questions came up for me. Questions which needed further reflection, thought, and counselling.Continue reading “One Word 2018 – Perspective”

One Year Ago Today

I am sharing this in an effort to help others, to be a voice when others may be struggling to find their words.  If you, or someone you know, think that you may need the support of a Transition House, give them a call. Reach out. Ask for help. February 12, 2017 One year agoContinue reading “One Year Ago Today”

You Matter

Yes, you matter. For the past few years, there has been a prominent movement toward making sure people (particularly kids) know that they matter. It is a wonderful, very important message that I feel like people can’t hear enough. You can read more about the You Matter Manifesto through Angela Maiers’ site. You can alsoContinue reading “You Matter”
