May is the Gateway – by Kat McCarthy


May is such a wonderful month. Warm days start to appear, nature is beginning to burst with colour and the bugs haven’t come out to play yet. I can’t imagine a better month in the year. Peter and I have begun talking about camping trips and holidays, we’ve started planting our flowers and veggies in our garden and we’ve started hiking. May is like the gate way to summer and it feels so good to breathe in the warm air and soak up some sun.

Love the April Rain! – by Kat McCarthy


April always makes me think of little children in raincoats and rubber boots, holding their umbrella’s and walking through rain puddles. It also makes me think of baby bunnies, jelly beans and Easter egg hunts. It really is a cute time of year filled with tender pastel colours, the new and fresh part of the year invites us all to consider where we are going and what we want to grow through this year. While there are opportunities to contemplate our lives at every point in the year, the early spring is one of the best as it suggests a freshness other parts of the year are missing.

What’s your story? – by Kat McCarthy


Happy New Year! A New Year is delicious, isn’t it? It has the feel of an opportunity to redefine ourselves and that is what leads so many of us to make New Year’s resolutions. Which are fine, if it works for you. Me, not so much.

Yay! For Snuggly November – by Kat McCarthy


November is a month of transition moving closer to the winter months sometimes with ease and sometimes not so much. It’s supposed to snow in a couple of days here in my corner of the world. I always loved November, it’s a time for fireplaces, warm socks and snuggly sweaters. I like to bake more often as well. Could there even be a better aroma then fresh baked bread and fresh brewed coffee? Ah yes, November is a time of comforts and coziness.

Personal Power When You Need It – by Kat McCarthy


I’ve been thrown into a number of situations this year that had the look and feel of powerlessness. I say ‘look and feel’ because I’ve watched other people in similar situations and I’ve noticed that most people do allow themselves to be powerless. Turbulence often leaves one trying to stay on their feet! I understand though that we are never powerless and I have used this year to hone my self empowerment skills. If I felt powerless, that would simply mean that my approach was wrong – nothing more. Work can always be done to change how we feel. 🙂
