Where Thoughts Fly

What is Wattpad?

So I may have been living under a rock for the past 11 years.

Because I feel like I am the only person who had never heard of Wattpad. Until yesterday.

Wattpad is an online community that allows writers to self-publish on its website/app and allows readers free access to millions of new stories. That’s right. Millions. [...]  read more

Why You Should Not Ignore Minor Injuries During Marathon Training

Training for a marathon is a daunting task. Even when you’ve done it before.

It requires a certain level of commitment and being a certain degree of crazy.

Unless you are at a superhuman level of fitness (which I am not), you have to be willing to adhere to a training schedule over many weeks in order to get your body (and mind) ready for the task. [...]  read more

30 Thoughts on Visiting Ireland

Short answer: Do it!

Longer answer:

I spent eight full days in June exploring Ireland with J. It is such a beautiful country and I could not recommend it more for all travelers.

We crammed a lot into eight days! It was enough time to get a great feel for the country but we could have easily spent more time there without running out of things to do. And, while renting a car is definitely not necessary (we didn’t), it would open up more possibilities of small towns and coastline to explore. [...]  read more

Why I Took A Month Off From Blogging (and Why I Came Back)

Welcome back!

That remark was intended for myself as much as for you. Whether you realized it or not, I disappeared from the blogging world for the month of June. It was not intentional and I know that there are many things I could have done to maintain the steady stream of content that I had been generating. I was actually on a pretty good roll of twice a week posts. [...]  read more

30 Thoughts On Places I’ve Been

I caught the travel bug early and have since been searching for any opportunity to see the world. My “bucket list” of places seems to be ever growing but I have managed to see a few memorable places over the years. And with summer around the corner, I am sure many of you are busy planning your own vacations. If you are still undecided about where to go, maybe this list will help you get started. [...]  read more

4 Easy Ways To Have More Fun (And Improve Your Life)

Fun should be a big part of your life. If it’s not, then you’re doing something wrong.

Life is full of stress and sadness and worry — often out of your control. There are probably moments every day when you have to deal with something (or someone) negative in your life. [...]  read more

30 Thoughts On Big City Vs. Small Town Living

This past weekend I escaped my downtown Toronto life for the small town of West Lorne, Ontario.

For those of you that are not familiar with this town (I know I wasn’t and I live in Ontario), the population of West Lorne is approximately 1,400 people. Compared to Toronto’s approximately 3 million. [...]  read more

30 Thoughts On Netflix

I think it is safe to say that Netflix changed the game when it comes to at-home TV and movie watching.

I have cable but the vast majority of what I watch is streamed through Netflix. 

Here are my thoughts.

1. I find it difficult to remember how I kept up with TV shows before Netflix. Watching one episode of a show at a designated time each week just seems ridiculous now. [...]  read more

What Happened When I Questioned How To Define Success

This week I was asked to think about my most significant accomplishments.

My successes.

What seemed like a simple request sent me down a rabbit hole of trying to figure out (1) what I considered to be my successes, and (2) why I thought they were successes. [...]  read more

30 Thoughts On Being An Introvert

I do not remember the first time I heard the word introvert.

But I have long known that there are many misconceptions about the term. I feel like it is a word that gets thrown around a lot in conversation to describe the quiet, shy, less social person in the group. [...]  read more
