This was a sign on a walk with a dear friend of mine and it rings so true. I want to live fully every moment I can especially during this pandemic.

Living fully means different things to different people. For me I try to make as many moments of my life count that I can. It also means sometimes I just veg in front of Netflix escaping into another world for a period of time.

Whatever you choose to do each day make sure it is living as fully as you possibly can spending time with those you care about any way you can.

Youth Rejuvenate Me

My colleague Helen and I have been working with youth for many years and this year is no exception. Tonight we gave two online workshops after working all day with youth in a school, I am so grateful to surround myself with the enthusiasm and energy of youth. They think we are helping them,but they rejuvenate me.

It Is Always A Good Day

It is always a good day to get outside for a walk. Today I walked about five hours breathing in the fresh air letting the sunny Alberta skies shine upon my face. When you can get outdoors do so. It’s good for your mental and physical health. It’s always a good day when you make the effort to get outside especially gratifying when you are in a pandemic .
