August’s topic “How do you Define your self?”

August’s topic: “How do you Define your self?” Identity ~ August Blog-o-phere Think tank group blog How do I define myself? … How much time do we have?? And ask me again next month. The answer may change. Which is ok – because it’s good to learn/grow/change/expand…. I guess defining oneself is linked to who I see myself as. My own personal Identity. What makes me unique from every one else out there…. I am not one thing… I am many. And even many things that may at first glance appear in opposition to each other — not a hypocrite.… Read More »August’s topic “How do you Define your self?”

July’s topic: “What are you good at?” (and how did you get that way?)

Perfection ~ July Blog-o-phere Think tank group blog July’s topic: “What are you good at?” (and how did you get that way?) Once upon a time so very long ago… it was my mission to be my/the very best at Ballet skiing. I competed, and I worked hard. How did I get good? I worked my ass off. Every. Single. Day…… I lived it. I breathed it in, and out; all the time. I thought about it. I visualized it. I dreamed it. I trained. And I kept it my sole focus at the cost of all else… for many… Read More »July’s topic: “What are you good at?” (and how did you get that way?)

February’s topic:  “5 things on your mind?”

February’s topic: “5 things on your mind?” On your mind? February Blog-o-sphere Think Tank Group Blog I’m one of those “8,428,675 browser tabs open” types… so just off the top of my head, here are 5 things that are on my mind often at this point. With accompanying images that may or may not be appropriate 😛 The future… (*my* future) … And where I want to take it. What I’m going to create in my studio… First… second, next, and after that… (*soon)….. maybe even today…. The snow melting and riding season arriving. Can. Not. Wait. (*I sure miss… Read More »February’s topic:  “5 things on your mind?”

January’s topic:  “What has impacted you recently?” (and how/why?)

January’s topic: “What has impacted you recently?” (and how/why?) Impact ~ January Blog-o-Sphere Think Tank I came face to face [again] with the knowledge and reality that the most important thing I can do for myself is this: Honour & Respect My Self. Put my needs in the forefront in my life; with no compromise. Because without putting my personal needs (emotional, physical, spiritual) I end up compromising my true Self. Not being that who I am. Not honouring that which is important to me. Not respecting what makes me, me….. Which is a downward spiral of constantly ripping off… Read More »January’s topic:  “What has impacted you recently?” (and how/why?)

December’s Topic: “Looking Forward”….

December’s Topic: “Looking Forward”…. Forward ~ December’s Blog-o-sphere Think Tank To be honest, I had a nice light little post written here; all positive about looking forward in my own life. Rainbows, unicorns, shooting stars….. And last night I sat and re-wrote it. 2015 showed me forced me to experience the 1000 iterations of Jekyll & Hyde and a hundred other faces it throws out at you, when you [apparently] “need to be challenged”….. 2015 was HARD. And I mean hard and challenging: in every possible aspect. Personally. Health wise. Emotionally. It still has it’s talons dug in to me.… Read More »December’s Topic: “Looking Forward”….

November’s Topic: “What are you thankful for?”

November’s Topic: “What are you thankful for?” Thankful ~ November Blog-o-sphere Think Tank Group Blog I have so much to be thankful for! ~ The Forest AND the trees. I wanted to take a second and wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. (Though in Canada we celebrated it back in early October!) The feeling is the same though: It’s a great reminder at this time of the year, with “thanksgivings” coming around; to take a second and just feel thankfulness for all the parts of your life; big and small, material and non-material – that you feel thankful for. And that’s… Read More »November’s Topic: “What are you thankful for?”

October’s topic: Why Do You Do What You Do?

Why Do You Do What You Do? ~ October Blog-o-Sphere Think Tank Group Blog WDYDWYD It’s a whole movement. A beautiful, brilliant, expressive, mind opening movement; based on one simple question once asked “Why do you do what you do?” Thier facebook page – a brilliant photo album from Burning Man – the first view I had of this. Visit the WDYDWYD website here. *A note about my post: October 19th is Federal Election Day in Canada. While choosing who to vote for is never a simple or straightforward task, I found today really difficult. I could on one hand… Read More »October’s topic: Why Do You Do What You Do?

September’s topic:  “Domination is the new Behavior.”

September’s topic: “Domination is the new Behavior.” Domination Behavior ~ September Blog-o-sphere Think Tank Group Blog “So you say you want freedom of choice? Well too bad. Those days are LONG gone & over. Welcome to 2091” Master Towers sneered at them. “We don’t do freedom of choice anymore. Your ancestors gave that up for the false sense of security… which began in earnest back in 2001.” They were confused. Frightened. Unsure of this place they had woken up in to. It was not at all what things where like back when they departed…..So long ago. From a different time… Read More »September’s topic:  “Domination is the new Behavior.”

August’s topic: “How do you envision the possibilities for the future?”

August’s topic: “How do you envision the possibilities for the future?” Envision ~ August Think Tank Blog-o-sphere Group Blog I had a horoscope this week, that applied really well to the topic, so let me share: “Most people reach the top of the ladder of success only to find it’s leaning against the wrong wall.” Actor Paul Sorensen said that. It’s no coincidence that I’m bringing this theory to your attention right now. The coming months will be a good time to determine whether the ladder you have been climbing is leaning against the right wall or wrong wall. My… Read More »August’s topic: “How do you envision the possibilities for the future?”

July’s topic:  “”Where would you like to visit this summer?”

July’s topic: “”Where would you like to visit this summer?” Places To Go ~ July Blog-o-sphere Think Tank I am just getting back to “normal life” after a pretty brutal Motorcycle Accident in May; and am am finally able to ride my new bike! It’s a challenge with my right hand, as My thumb is still injured. The ligaments are still healing, so the joint is very stiff and it doesn’t move much; leaving it with not much strength….. But just three days ago, I went for my first short ride since the accident. My hand did better than I… Read More »July’s topic:  “”Where would you like to visit this summer?”
