Words to inspire the belief that we have all we need to be the change we wish to see.

Graduation season

It’s graduation season.  So many stories of proud parents celebrating their children finishing their elementary or high school journey.  So much possibility.

But as actor and comedian Carol Burnett said, “We don’t stop going to school when we graduate.”  We must be lifelong learners.  Curious question-askers.  Readers.  People who connect the dots from different angles to form creative solutions. Continue reading

Secrets of the universe

Nikola Tesla, inventor of the AC electrical system, said, “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”  High-frequency people are positive game-changers who believe anything is possible.  Low-frequency people complain about life, put others down and see the walls that block possibilities rather than the doors that open into opportunity.

An epic tribe

I visited a local burrito restaurant recently that had rave reviews and I wasn’t disappointed.  As I waited for my order with a line up of people, I was in awe of the symphony of movement by the team of ten behind the counter.  The space wasn’t big but they each had a role and they performed it to perfection.  From the cashier to the cooks to those adding the toppings to the gentleman at the end of the line who toasted, rolled and called your number.  I told them they were an epic tribe.

One year ago today

One year ago today I was told that my book was live and available at Indigo and Amazon.  I grabbed a copy, ran outside and got my son to take my picture.  Then I shared my story and never looked back.  What a whirlwind year.  I’ve done book signings, spoken to students and executives, and been honoured each time someone decided to purchase a copy of The Treasure You Seek.

What the pain must be like

What the pain must be like.  For someone like Anthony Bourdain.  Who was living a life many dream of.  Sharing his love of food and travel with millions of us who lived vicariously through his adventures.  But the black hole of mental illness was too heavy to bear.

Anthony Bourdain once said, “You learn a lot about someone when you share a meal together.”

But some secrets are never uncovered.  And many suffer in silence.

May we each take the time to notice those who may be struggling.  And may we try and ask for help when we need it ourselves.

Bourdain reminded us how social and educational and rewarding a great meal can be.  And how a memorable meal can be made with very few ingredients and a sprinkle of love.   He said, “Meals make the society, hold the fabric together in lots of ways that were charming and interesting and intoxicating to me. The perfect meal, or the best meals, occur in a context that frequently has very little to do with the food itself.”

Let’s remember to sit and enjoy meals with the ones we love.  Not just to fuel our bodies but to fuel our souls.  To remind us how beautiful, and how short, life can be.  Rest in peace Anthony Bourdain.
