Spiritual Saturday :- Start Where You Are

At the end of each year, countless people around the world look back at the events and experiences they gained in the past 365 days. From there, they make an assessment or a comparison to what they had promised themselves the year prior. More often than not, a comparison to the accomplishments of those in their social circle are made.

The endless lists. New Year Resolutions. Life goals. Promises.

It begs the question – How constructive is this exercise??? Continue reading

Travel Thought Thursday :- Overcoming the Fear of Water

When someone thinks of 4 days 3 nights cruise in the Mediterranean off the coast of Turkey, most conjure up dreamy thoughts.

Crisp blue waters, so clear that you can see the small fish skidding past the bottom of the boat. The amazing clear skies at night, lite up by the moon and the million stars in the sky. The sound of waves as the boat cruise along as you lounge on the deck with fellow travelers. Plunging into the deep blue sea for a leisure swim.

Full stop.

Swimming. Open waters. Bottomless. Float – Sink.

When I am a person who recently overcome a fear of water, facing open water is a challenge. If I overthink the situation, I will NOT be amongst the deep blue sea. I would stay on the boat the whole time. Regardless of the peer pressure or self pressure to join the masses!

All I can do is trust and have faith in the Universe – believe that my path will unfold the way it needs to happen.

The next phase is starting to take shape!

Within the last 2 months I have found a tenant to rent my Home Sweet Home – without posting an ad in Toronto. Purely involving word-of-mouth through 3 people. I have potentially found the most accommodating tenants! I mean who agrees to rent a place without knowing the move-in date!!?! Seriously, right!?

I have started purging my personal belongings and selling my furnitures – to down size.

Today I finally bought my airplane ticket to Turkey – after watching the price climb higher and higher the last 2 months. For some unknown reason, I did not think to consider using my Aeroplan frequent flier miles until this morning. Continue reading
