All in Mindfulness

All is Calm

Fall has always been my favourite season. But Winter is an exceptionally close second. Every year when the weather gets colder and there's legit snow on the ground, I feel a sense of contentment that can only come with this season. 

The Beauty of Rituals

I've recently fallen in love with a new skin care routine ritual. One that's quiet, still and calm. And actually doesn't irritate the hell out of my crazy sensitive skin like scrubs, masks and moisturizers can. Herbal facial steaming - basically a bowl of hot water with herbs and flowers. Doesn't sound that magical, but the magic isn't in the task. It's in the action of completing said task.

Moving Towards Meaningfulness

In 2017, I want to create more space and time for the things that matter to me. I want space to practice, space to create and master my crafts, time to spend sharing experiences with loved ones, and time to recharge my introvert batteries by doing nothing (and not thinking about all the stuff I "should" be doing). So what's in the way? Stuff. So much stuff. 

Tree of Gratitude

Christmas isn't always easy and can be a difficult time of year for some. I haven't been inspired to put up my tree for a while. This afternoon, inspiration struck me. I'm assuming that it's because I was watching Trailer Park Boys last night and thinking about how I look forward to watching the Trailer Park Boys Christmas Special with my brother (and subjecting my mom to it) every year on Christmas day.
