We are unique beings with our own views, beliefs and experiences. Our commonalities come from our humanness and the need to nourish our bodies and souls in order to survive and flourish. Finding meaning and purpose becomes increasingly important as we age and try to make sense of our lives while carving out our own special place in the world. Once we realize our own distinct rhythm in life, our hearts can truly sing as we take on a special glow like that of a rising sun, revealing our own true colours in all their intensity.
As I look back on my life, I see rays of light amidst times of darkness. The premature loss of loved ones left dark imprints as I grew through childhood without a mother, adolescence without a father, and parenthood without a husband. In spite of these significant losses, blessings prevailed with meaningful friendships, the birth of my sons, post-secondary success, rewarding work and opportunities to travel abroad. My life has taught me to take nothing for granted, to hold the bigger picture at all times and appreciate even the simplest of things in life. Sharing love and laughter are the real gifts of life that we all cherish. I am blessed to have family and good friends of all ages to share my journey and along with my ancestors, they breathe life and wisdom into these pages.
“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be” – Lao Tzu
The most beautiful memories in life often come from being fully present and open to the virtues of our surroundings. I am in awe of the abundance of goodness our world has to offer and ask: “What brings you joy in your life?” “How can you create more space for what you cherish today?”
Many blessings to you as we journey forward together.
