"A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play: his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both."
~ Francois Auguste Rene Chateaubriand

When you follow your heart, you trust your deeper intuitive self. You show love to yourself and to others. The physical reaction when following your heart is like a glowing white light beaming in all directions from you but concentrated from your chest—your heart.
Time disappears and all is radiant. You feel peace and joy. Our egos usually talk us out of something because of fear of the unknown, but our hearts always lead us to what we truly desire. When you follow your heart and receive its desires, you will feel good—really good! Therefore, trust what feels good in your heart and use this feeling as guidance; this “feeling good” is aligned with our hearts and our life purpose.
Embrace your Life! Enjoy!
With Love Kelly

“After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come.” - Nelson Mandela
Embrace your life, enjoy!

“Beauty is all around us, from the smallest things to the biggest.
All we need to do is look with the eyes of a child.”
~ Author Unknown
When facing a dull dreary day, don't accept the grey instead look closer. Approach each moment with a sense of wonder and possibility and your world will shift and open up. Look with the eyes of a child, play, be mischievious, make believe, laugh!
Enjoy! Embrace your life!

What happens to your body when you think and imagine yourself doing what your heart wants? Doesn't it feel good?! Likely it does! So, what is stopping you from taking action?
You don't need a studio to be a potter or a sculptor. You don't need to quit your job to be a writer, photographer or a dancer. You don't need to leave your relationship to own your own business or will be considered a terrible parent to join a passionate cause.

Each week one of the tasks assigned is for you to take yourself out on the town and explore your world. The possibilities are endless! Go for a walk, browse the shops, visit an art gallery or a concert, take a belly dancing class or simply go out for a lavish meal – the catch is: you go alone.
So often we bend and compromise what we want to please others or simply for time restraints that we choose the best option for all ~ never really getting what we want… so for the next 10 weeks starting on October 6 – the homework is to date yourself! You have permission to explore what that is you really want! Exciting!!

As women, it is so easy to fall into the rut of neglecting our bodies, our minds, our spirits. We say things like "I don't care" or "I don't have enough time" or "I wish!"
Reclaim your space, your voice! Shift from not caring to caring and take the time to engage yourself in a conversation ~ What do you want for yourself? How do you want your life to be? What action can you take to get you there?
Turn your wishes into plans!
I am facilitating a 10 week Self Discovery workshop based on the book the Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. This book transformed my life when I first read it in 2006 and many of the participants from our recent workshop are transforming as we speak!

Perfect moments are when you are truly present in the moment, when nothing is missing and nothing could be added to make the moment better. You feel bliss. It is selfless; you don’t need to do or be anything different. You feel slightly removed, non-attached, you just witness it.
The purposes of this following exercise is to really identify those times when you are the most happy and blissful and to be aware of how your body feels when you are happy! Try this activity:
• Can you think of a perfect moment? A moment when time stopped and all was blissful? Write it down and then close your eyes again and remember the way your body felt when you were in this moment.
• When you have at least 5 happy and peaceful moments – open your eyes. And look over your list. When reviewing your list, see if there is any relationship between them.

We celebrated my husband's first long dark cold Canadian winter by going to the Dominican, returning for me after 2 years, to where I found love and my love - him.
We reunited our daughter with our Dominican family and friends and reconnected with the beautiful tropical setting, the beginning of our romantic story. The warmth of the sun, loving hugs, vibrant colours, dreamy beaches and cleansing energy of the ocean rejuvenated my spirit and refocused my vision. Despite my concern of travelling with our daughter, she easily adapted and flowed with our sometimes hectic schedule of visiting. She laughed joyfully with her relatives and celebrated the newness of her experiences. She danced - often!
