Been awhile. Things have been busy. And not the regular busy that we all use as an excuse once in our lives, things have actually been busy.

My life is changing. Drastically. I feel slightly out of control, and I am not sure how I feel about it. I feel like my life is about to be flipped upside down, but it’s not necessarily a bad thing.

I really am so unsure of what is to come. I am taking a big leap of faith and you know how they say ‘Look before you leap!’ well I have looked and its exciting and scary all at the same time. Not really sure if its good or bad, but I am doing it.

Have you ever taken a leap of faith on something big before?

Oh Mr. Sun, Please Shine Down on Me!

Winter – ugh. According to scientists and the memories of anyone 20 years and old, this has been the worst winter in 20 years. Now lets just stop for a second and understand what it means to say ‘The Worst’.

Has it been the worst? Or has it been a true winter? I am from Canada, so i will refer to ‘Canadian’ winters.  This has been a stereotypical Canadian winter. To be perfectly honest I think that last few years have been the worst – because there was no winter! This is coming from a sun-loving, summer heat lover, cold weather basher person. I need snow on Christmas and the couple of weeks leading up to and after Christmas. So for me the past few years, winter was the worst. I debated a couple of years ago to go to ice rinks and ‘steal’ the snow from the pile the Zamboni made and lay it out on my front lawn just so I could have a white Christmas. I actually had a few people with trucks lined up ready to go. Then I realized I was a bit crazy.

So has this been the worst winter? We finally had a white Christmas, this summer we may actually out number the bugs in the air and can enjoy walks without getting eaten alive, and our ground water is actually full. As much as I may hate the winter, I understand it’s importance – but that doesn’t mean I can’t complain about the cold and crappy driving conditions every single day of winter.

It’s hard to maintain the positive outlook, find the silver lining, or see the summer light at the end of the tunnel, but we need the winter. and it was a GOOD winter in my opinion – not the worst. So look at the bright side, the sunny side, and realize the benefits of the apparent worst winter we just had and now get out and enjoy the warm days ahead!!

Today where I live, it’s going to be sunny and plus 8 – I am trying to not be too gun-ho, but I am debating wearing a sundress… too much too soon??

SOAK UP THE VITAMIN D we have all been lacking people and go for a walk!!!!!!!!

 

The Secrets of Life … and Humans

 

Or is it the Mystery of Life? What is the meaning of life? What is the purpose? You only live once, so live it well?

I don’t think there is a true answer to any question when it comes to life aside from live it, and live it well. Who really knows. We all wonder and contemplate what is the meaning of life and the secret to life. It could vary from person to person and what they believe.

To be perfectly honest, of all the species I think humans make life a lot more complicated and frustrating than it really is. However, on the other side of things, I think we also make it the most fulfilling. What other living creature has the amount craziness, drama, happiness, sadness, stress, anxiety, structure, laws.. (this list is endless) all wrapped up in one day?  And on the positive to all that, what other living creature as lived in this world like humans have? We have literally destroyed this world but at the same time, in ways, have made it better, have LIVED in this world. We have invented ways to discover the world like no other. It’s just sad that in order to better ourselves, our lives and our ‘world’ we have to destroy it.

We are all striving to live in this world, succeed and most of to help save the world, but let’s be honest for a moment.

Take a step back and look at your life and look at what you are doing to better yourself/your life and compare it with what you are doing to better the world?

And I just realized how hypocritical I am. But am I? This world isn’t structure to put the world first. Humans made it to put ourselves first in order to make it and to live here. Yes you can break free of that structure and live by how society tells you and I applaud those that have done that. It’s probably one of the hardest things that anyone could ever do.

So what is the secret to it? The secret to living that fulfilling life and finding happiness?

I think it’s discovering who you truly are, what it truly means to be human and taking nothing for granted when it comes to relationships with your family, friends and your relationship with the world and future generations.

What do you think it is?

Screw stuck in the middle, I’m stuck in the past!

Don’t dwell on the past! The past is the past! The past is history, tomorrow is a mystery and today is a gift.

There is lots to say about the past and so many reasons to continue to keep your back to it. But the fact is, the past is YOUR past. YOUR journey in life. It is a part of who you are TODAY and TOMORROW. Never forget that.

I know I struggle with that. Sometimes I can’t seem to forget, or let go of the past. Even when I have every reason to forget it and move past it. It’s hard. Plus, the fact that I am a very curious person, I often think of what could have been, or where certain people are from my past.

I can be the the happiest place in my life (which right now, I think I am pretty damn close) and I will still ponder about my past adventures, relationships and experiences. I don’t think there is anything wrong with that. Sometimes you can learn a lot about yourself when you look back and think about something or someone from years ago. And I often do.

I definitely don’t think you need to LIVE in the past and act as if things haven’t changed, but don’t forget it. Embrace it.

This is where it all began …

I have had multiple blog sites over the many years since the Internet was born. Some I kept up for quite awhile, while others dwindled off like Tiffany’s career. Whether or not this particular blog will be successful,well much like my web page title states – it’s debatable.

I am going to dedicate this blog to not only my life’s conundrums, experiences and adventures that may be relatable, but also to my opinions and thoughts that may just be debatable.

Maybe I can find the answers to my conundrums, or find the words to express how I am feeling, but in it all I really hope to entertain some stranger on the other side of the wireless internet wave,and who knows, maybe inspire them.

Here’s hoping for all of the above.
