Officially a CHRP!!!!!!!!!!!

Call me a bit of a bragger – I will take it. I am darn proud and I am going to shout it from every social media rooftop I know.

I have successfully obtained my CHRP (Certified Human Resources Professional)

I had schooling, extra courses and fast tracked and even achieved honours, then a very hard National Knowledge exam, as well as having to complete 3 years of experience at a professional level. 

The hard part was the schooling and exam. I suppose obtaining a job to in today’s market, but still – I FINALLY DID IT! And it feels great. I am so happy and very excited for what this brings (aside from high fees with the HRPA – which I don’t get?!??!) 

Thank you to everyone that has helped me and supported me along the way. I am truly grateful.

Oh well. I challenge everyone to go an accomplish something now – today, tomorrow, or someday soon. Accomplish something you can be proud of!!!!

Family Matters

I am blessed to have a big family. At least that is the way I feel. Some people may feel too big means too much, but can you ever have too much family? Maybe, I don’t know, but what I do know is that I feel blessed to have such a large family. 

I have 3 older sisters, 2 brother-in-laws,2 older ‘brothers’ 6 nephews and 1 niece. Now I put ‘brothers’ in quotations marks because they are not biological brothers nor were they adopted by my parents. My two brothers parents both died along with their guardians at different stages in their lives. But they have been in my life for as long as I can remember and their family was very close to my family. So they merged into ours. They are my brothers. What makes someone family? Blood? A piece of paper? I don’t think so. They are my brothers, they are in my life, we share our ups and downs, holidays together, they are my brothers and I love them like brothers  – and they can annoy me like brothers too! 🙂

My family is close. We enjoy spending time together and often have family dinners still even though we have all grown up and begun our own lives. Growing up we have dinner at the table together, and Sunday night we sat at the nice fancy dinning room table. We grew up fairly traditionally so to speak. 

As all families do, we have had our ups and downs, but I have never stopped being grateful towards them and loving them, even when they annoy the crap out of me which they do … a lot. 

My nephews and niece – wow, I never thought I could love like that before. My 1 sister has 5 children and my other sister has 2. Yes I know 5. and Yes, she does know what is causing it. Her husband comes from a family of 9 children. They like big families. They love children, hence having a 5, 4, 3, 2 and 12 week old. All 7 of them, have got to be the cutest, funniest, most amazing things in the world. I could cuddle up and play with them all day (unless they are crabby). I asked my one nephew who is 3 if I was cool. His response was ‘No, you’re pretty’ ….. I will take that backhanded compliment because I just can’t help but love his extremely curly blonde hair and big eyes.

Whenever I walk into the house, i yell out ‘Your favourite Aunty is here!” and they come running yelling my name out. I say who wants to give me a hug first, and some, not all, run to give me a hug. I could be in the worst mood and they always make me smile. The things they do, they say, their hugs and smiles … it truly takes my breath away and in those moments, I can’t help but smile. 

I love those kids more than I ever thought I could love anything. I want nothing but amazing things for them, and I would go to great lengths to protect them and ensure they only know greatness – but appreciate it and realize others are not so fortunate. 

I am fortunate. I am so very fortunate and I am thankful for my life and my family. 

I want hugs and kisses now from them … good thing I will get to see them lots this Easter weekend

Happy Easter everyone (to those that celebrate it) Enjoy, and enjoy your time with your family if you are doing so. 

 

You Are Your Own Worst Critic

It’s funny – here I have written a few posts on this blog that I thought were witty, truthful, thought provoking … and then last night I post something I deemed to be Crumple-up-and-throw-in-the-trash-can worthy, and it got the most likes and comments ever!!! I greatly appreciate those who liked my posts and those that commented. To all new readers – please check it out and check out those kind people who liked it and commented! I don’t know how to do shout outs on here, but I am shouting out their blogs!!!!!

And I am shouting out my blog – go read my previous posts, I honestly do feel they are better 🙂 – may be slightly biased, but who’s judging?

Honestly, Jay Wilks, Jacey Calla and Sirselah thank you for the comments and to all those that started to follow me and liked my post last night and before.

I went to bed last night thinking ‘Wow, great start to getting on that Blogging train” and I woke up to all these notifications and ‘awards’ for writing a great hit. Made me smile, great way to wake up.

It’s funny how strangers can make you smile so much. I think everyone needs that more in their lives. You are your own worst critic, and anyone close to you, yes, their opinions matters, their opinion can hurt or can be the best compliment ever. I can’t take away from that, but sometimes, a strangers comment is more truthful or meaningful. It can’t be biased because they don’t have to worry about you ‘Un-friending’ them on facebook or anything, they just have to state their opinion and move on with their lives.   Yes – that also means their opinion of you is uneducated, so could be moot, but the good not judgmental ones – I like it.  I have, and will in the future, comment on random peoples photos, blogs, tweets and offer a helping hand, words of wisdom, or ‘you look beautiful’. It’s an unbiased friendly gesture that brings a smile to their face (I hope).

Everyone will forever critique their work, life, body whatever – it’s about accepting the flaws and loving them anyways. And holding on to those compliments and using the negative as fuel to prove them wrong!!

Thank you again followers, likers and commentors. I hope to continue to amuse you with my random blogs and bring a smile to your face.

Blogging

I haven’t been on here in quite some time … refer back to my 1st blog for a moment …. OK now that you have read that – I am trying to make this one last.

I usually have a million thoughts running through my head. Ideas, witty comments, rants, opinions and various other mashed together thoughts. I have always found it easier to write things out then speak what I am trying to say. When I speak its a jarbled map of unfinished sentences. In writing – it’ just poor grammar. But at least you can refer back to previous comments and some what easily follow the map as to how I got to whatever point I may have got to. That is provided I had a point. Which clearly, this blog doesn’t.

Moving on to much more exciting writing.

I didn’t say this blog would be fantastic. I enjoy writing. It can be fun. Some people say I have a talent when it comes to write (those people did not read this blog entry) I wish I could be better at it though.

I like to think of myself as an artsy person. I took Theatre in college for 2 years and loved it. I danced for about 8 years, I love being artistic, painting things, drawing things, creating things, and most of all. I love photography. But I feel like I am mediocre at best. Some people say I have a talent in all the previous mentioned, just have to develop it. But if you have a talent – shouldn’t it come developed?? I don’t want to work on it to become better- I just want to be good at it. HAHA

I have a busy life, we all do, but I only know my life – so my life is busy. I work two jobs and yes some how manage to somewhat have a social life, as well as ‘Me Time’. During that me time, I have no interest in making my brain work in order to make myself better at my so called talents. But I really wish I did have more time. I would love to take photography classes. I would love to do that as a hobby and maybe get paid a little for producing memorable photos for people. I know that day will come. I work damn hard to make sure that day comes soon.

Time – it’s such a funny thing. there is never enough of it, but I think we just don’t cherish it enough and that’s why it seems so fragile.

Merry Christmas

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed every moment with friends and family. All the best through the holiday season. Prayers to those who have lost a loved one at this time and anyone suffering in anyway

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.
