Life is a mysterious and magical dance

“And now I’m glad I didn’t know the way it all would end, the way it all would go. Our lives are better left to chance. I could have missed the pain, but I’d have had to miss the dance.”                –The Dance (Garth Brooks) This song reminds me of one of the best moments of my life and one of the worst. The best moment was in September of 1996 when I got to see Garth Brooks live in concert. I was there with one of my roommates and 3 of my coworkers. We had seats that were essentially behind the stage, but he didn’t have a backdrop so we could still see fine. While my coworkers were off getting souvenirs, some tall, lanky cowboy came up and asked my roommate and me (seated in our seats) if we would like to be moved down to the second row. Um…YES!! He gave us new tickets, and away we went (after finding our friends and letting them know). The concert was phenomenal! If you have never seen Garth Brooks live, watch the YouTube video I included, and you’ll get an idea of what he’s all about. Whether you are a country music fan or not, it’s well worth watching! (You will probably want to grab some Kleenex beforehand.) The worst moment of my life happened just a little less than a year before that concert. It was in October of 1995 – my brother’s funeral. I had chosen ‘The Dance’ to be played because it really speaks to me about life and how...

Let go, take a leap, and get what you truly want (and deserve)!

“Drench yourself in words unspoken. Live your life with arms wide open. Today is where your book begins. The rest is still unwritten.” –Unwritten (Natasha Bedingfield) A year and a bit ago, I was living in Millet, Alberta, Canada. I was single, working as a life coach, travelling, doing lots of things I loved with people I enjoyed being around, and yet, I still felt like something was missing. I’d had this feeling for a while that it was time for me to move, but I wasn’t sure where I wanted to go. Costa Rica (or another foreign country where there’s no snow!) was on my mind. Nova Scotia (where I was born and raised) was also a possibility. I’d been gone for 16 years, so maybe it was time to move back? (I had just sold my place in AB at the end of May and was going home to NS for vacation in June.) The two weeks flew by, and I decided to stay for the summer – living out of a suitcase! By the end of August, I knew I wanted to move back, so I went to AB to get my stuff from storage and drove across the country (by myself!) to begin the next chapter of my life. So, what has happened since I’ve been living back here? Lots! I rented an apartment in Halifax – hoping eventually to buy a house, but again not totally sure where I wanted to live in NS. I said goodbye to my 30’s. Yup, I turned the big 4-0, and it’s as fabulous as everyone says it...

She talks to angels (and vice versa) ;)

“Hear this voice from deep inside. It’s the call of your heart. Close your eyes and you will find passage out of the dark.” –Send Me An Angel (Scorpions) I generally write one blog per month, and this month it feels like I’ve floated from one idea to another – writing bits and pieces of a handful of posts. I couldn’t settle on which one I really wanted to put out there, and I don’t like posting something just to post something – I need to feel it. Then something happened, and I KNEW this is what I HAD to tell you about! A couple of days ago I came back into my office to get my coffee cup (to wash it), and saw an almost perfectly formed heart shape in the bottom. This was not created by me – or anyone else in my house. So, how did it get there you ask? Good question! When I initially saw the heart (after taking a double look!), I thought “That’s pretty cool!” and very clearly heard the message “The Universe loves and supports me.” An intuitive friend of mine said it was a reminder from my angels that I am abundantly loved. “The Universe is always speaking to us…sending us little messages, causing coincidences and serendipities, reminding us to stop, look around, to believe in something else, something more.”   ~Nancy Thayer~ We all have guardian angels (spiritual beings) who are assigned to assist us while we live here on Earth. Very often we receive messages from our angels, but people tend to brush them off – if they even...
