There was a Sunday, somewhere in the mountains,
When I walked and walked and walked.
Uphill, downhill, by the river, across a river, through landslides.
And I was tired. So tired.

There was another Sunday in the mountains, much later, when I did the same. Maybe more.
And I wasn't tired.

Stamina? Maybe.
Had my body adjusted to the thin air, the higher pressure? Maybe.

While I wasn't busy catching my breath, I truly saw the mountains, as they smiled back.
I truly heard the wind, as it whispered Himalayan secrets.
Everything within and without shook with vibrance as all cosmic threads came to sight in one instant.

I say Life is like the mountains, as you walk through it.

It doesn't get better or worse, or anything at all.

It just is.

How you experience, explore, see, feel, breathe, Life is totally up to you.

There's a lot to see,
Many depths to chart,
So much magic in our Creator's art,
Sunday is a great day
You better start.

you're never too old to cut paper snowflakes and hang them above your bed

Reading + chilling, when a homeless looking dude slides into the bus stop, deciding he wants to talk to me, and I’m like...dude I am reading. But, you know, not everyone is adept at reading body language😂😂He then proceeds to tell me he’s from Vancouver & is waiting for his friends in the community to extend an invitation to him for dinner & how he’s been biking around the city & that he’s gonna go bike down to Bowness park & smoke a few joints & then keep biking around to see the city cause he’s lazy & he definitely drives but he just wants to bike (and apparently talk, lol), & not “creep me out” (he literally said that) but definitely wanted to share his travels with someone. So I just sat there, amused by his rather off-kilter behaviour & replied, “sounds like fun”. And smiled. And sat there.
I think I surprised him by not leaving the bus stop in a flurry of sidelong glances.
After chatting for a few minutes he went off in search of more adventure, & I thought to myself, homeless or not, the countless hours I spent volunteering in a homeless & transitioning out of homelessness shelter, really helped me to see the humanity in regular people. The “untouchables”. The ones who look strange & act even weirder & obviously don’t “have it all together”. But people are people, regardless of income or where they live or if they don’t have a house.
There are dangerous people out there, most aren’t- they just want to know they’ve been heard & seen by someone.
I know what it’s like to feel invisible, & I don’t want someone to feel worthless or unseen just because they aren’t put together, or they’re a little odd because they’ve smoked one too many joints.
I used to be afraid of homeless people because I assumed they were dangerous. As a kid, of course strangers in general are dangerous, so homeless people fall into that category.
But now I’m oddly comfortable with “down & outers”. At least, for the most part, they are incredibly honest people, & for that one reason, I respect them more than a lot of lawyers, doctors & rich people who are messed up as all get out but will never once admit to it.

Sometimes in the busyness of the season, we get caught up in the rush of buying gifts 🎁, Christmas parties, baking cookies, and the list goes on. Let’s not forget the true meaning of Christmas. 💜💜💜

You are the sky
Everything else is just the weather
The world turns around you
The sun the moon the stars all come out to catch a glimpse of your essence
You are brilliance personified
Magnificence quantified
Galaxies form at the thought of you
Rivers meet seas to touch your skin as you walk on the Ocean
The wind rush to flow thru your fingertips
You Are
You just Are

As the year is rounding up, I have started thinking of our 2018 plans- The end of maternity leave, looking for playgroups/nurseries, child care and family travels. I have to say it makes me feel anxious. There is so much to look forward to and I truly thank God, but my son is growing right before my eyes and I miss him already... miss him being so small and cuddly, missing the smiles he gives me when he wakes up to my face, missing his babbling, burping and drooling. Time is flying and I know that soon he will be a big boy. This post may sound odd but I hope someone can relate? I think it’s also mainly the prospect of going back to work that I’m so nervous about, it makes me a little sad to think I’ll be apart from him. We still have another few months to go, but it feels like just yesterday he got here so I know it’ll fly by. It’s prompted me to keep the moaning and complaining at a low, and to enjoy every minute of this bundle of joy. Its hard to describe how you can love someone so much. So unconditionally and selflessly. We should be so thankful for our babies, if they are stressing us out right this minute lets remember this quote and give them a tight squeeze #firsttimemum #SundayMusings #FirstSnowMakingMeEmontional #NewYearComing #Inlove #obsessedmum

Oh wait, no I’m not it’s actually happening. I remember a time when being able to design my own days seemed like an unreachable concept. When getting to a place within that, no matter what’s going on, I can CHOOSE how I feel, respond and re(act). And not only that I can be fucking grateful for what happened. And that’s how I’m feeling sat here right now - fucking grateful for everything. I finally feel a sense of calm that is beyond words. It’s light, and oh so beautiful. Trust that everything is EXACTLY as it should be. Relax and enjoy the flow. Keep taking small steps in the direction of your wildest dreams and one day you’ll wake up and realise your there. Also enjoy & be grateful for the journey (no matter how rough it may seem), that’s the whole point. That’s where the gold is. Sat Nam 🙏.
