I was just pulling in the driveway after picking up our kids from school…
My phone rang, and it was from a local number I didn’t recognize.
I normally wouldn’t answer it and just let it go to voicemail, but this time something told me I should take the call…
I don’t know why some people don’t like to tell others that it’s their birthday.
I don’t usually go out of my way to let someone know when it is, but I’m surely not one to hide from having a birthday.
I mean, why would I?
It’s a day that people send you warm wishes, friends and family are extra attentive and affectionate. Many even send or bring gifts. Who doesn’t like gifts?
And today, I got to come downstairs to this warm greeting.
The other day I took a friend to an appointment and went to a coffee shop across the street to wait until he was done.
Sitting there reading my book, drinking my tea, and minding my own business, I was reminded of this little lesson about being a hunter or a farmer in business.
The video will explain what I mean.
A couple of days ago my daughter came home with a homework assignment.
It’s one that I’m sure many of us have done over the years, and yet helping her with it was a challenge.
It was a challenge for a couple of reasons.
One, because I pray she never has to acquire first hand knowledge of the subject.
And two, because in my journey of discovery and seeking knowledge my own perspectives around this subject have changed drastically.
What’s the subject I’m speaking of?
It’s something on all of our minds today.
The Meaning Behind Remembrance Day
Do you find joy in every day?
Are there things that you used to do that made you happy that you no longer do?
Have you found yourself in a rut, and could use a boost of happiness?
Finding Joy is a great way to change your state.
Do you believe in karma?
Are you conscious of the karma you put out, with the belief that that’s what you’ll attract?
I believe in Karma, and today I’ll share with you a little story about how putting out good karma rewarded me in a big way.
I used to think it was just a cliche when people would say things like
Enjoy it while it lasts.
They grow up so fast.
Savour every moment.
I’m sure you’ve heard all of those expressions yourself, and perhaps a few more.
I still remember the day as clear as can be.
I had intended to upload some photos and some videos while we were away on our Road Trip, but instead I unplugged for a bit and enjoyed hanging out with my family, attending an awesome event and seeing some of the amazing sights this planet has to offer.
Just to give you a taste of what I was up to, I put together this video montage.
Is it possible to live in style without breaking the bank?
Here’s a short video compilation of some of the day at the Airdrie Canada Day parade, and evening fireworks.
Make sure you watch to the end. You won’t believe where we were to watch the fireworks this year!
