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.

30 Thoughts On Being An Introvert

The Five Biggest Benefits of Journaling

There have been many articles written on the benefits of journaling. A quick Google search will bring up dozens from the last few years. I cannot comment on all the possible benefits, but I want to share the five biggest ones for me. [...]  read more

Why Do We Put Limits On Ourselves?

The big challenge is to become all that you have the possibility of becoming. You cannot believe what it does to the human spirit to maximize your human potential and stretch yourself to the limit.” — Jim Rohn

Goodbye Winter, Hello Happiness

Even though spring officially started in March, the unofficial start of spring in Toronto was this past weekend.
