Lowlights

  • Being “homeless” for a while – but getting to connect with so many friends and realizing how supported and loved I am. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
  • Being yelled at and followed on the street – but getting to learn about human rights and finding new ways to BE LOVE and hold space for everything.
  • Experiencing the affects of legal disputes, but learning how to love and hold space in any situation.
  • Listening to some friends going through tough times – but getting to be the person others turn to because I am a listener and a space holder.
  • Losing a family member of a close friend – but being reminded of how important it is to reach out to others and write, love, HUG, smile, hold.

All in all it was a truly amazing year. Thank you for being part of it.

Time to MAKE 2012 THE YEAR OF ENDLESS LOVE.

Shake It Media + Wintercoast PRESENTS

Happy Holidays from Shake it Media and Wintercoast : )

I’ve been working on this all week (ok i’ve taken lotsa breaks) but it’s done just in time to wish you a very Happy Christmas!

PS: I’ve been enjoying saying “Happy Christmas” to people because it makes me feel British (like Harry Potter) and it reminds me that WAR IS OVER IF YOU WANT IT : )

11 Intentions for 2011

1. Keep being awesome.
2. “BE LOVE”

I am still understanding what this means, but we are what we create and I think this is a pretty excellent way to live.
“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference.” – Elie Wiesel

2. Spell Check.
3. choose more creative + positive vocabulary in daily life

The other day I asked a friend to watch my “crap” but it isn’t… so instead I corrected myself: “can you watch my abundance of lovely things?” much better : )
4. live in the moment.

I want to explore meditation to help with this, possibly at the Shambhala Centre? They offer free tutorials! I got SOOO much better at this in the past year but sometimes I still let things and people take over my brain and I start living in my head.
5. Show people that I care about them.
The holidays were a really awesome opportunity to be thoughtful. Last semester I had lots of ideas on how to make someone’s day but I didn’t have the time. This year I want to make time… which brings me to….
6. make time for the things and people that matter to me.
I want to stop using being “too busy” as an excuse. You only get one life, live it with meaning and intention. Sometimes, there are just too many people though. I really want to practice spending time with the people I fit best with and find a balance between loving everyone and not stretching myself to far. Sometimes it is okay to not have time to spend with someone.

7. Be thankful before each meal.

I saw a friend praying before eating not too long ago and although I am not religious I think it’s really great to take a moment and recognize how lucky I am.

8. explore juicing and do the cafe gratitude juice fast!
Cleansing for the body and the mind! yayy!
9. intern!
Maybe at TOMS Shoes, maybe at GIFTS, maybe with falling whistles or invisible children… oh the possibilities : )
10.keep learning about the best ways to communicate and share my thoughts + ideas with others
I have so many ideas and thoughts sometimes! I’ve been exploring poetry, songwriting, micro-bloggingphotography and film … I wonder what is working best! Maybe the communication courses (and possibly minor) I am embarking on will help me!

Welcome to 2011.Make it count : )
