Get Out of My Way!

How often have you thought or said these words maybe in a Tim’s line up, at the grocery store, or on the road?  Sometimes we gather our conscience and self-control and utter “excuse me” or “could I please go past?” but it really all says the same thing… move it! People are slowing us down, […]





The Inflammation Lamentation

“Im soooo tired!”, “I ache all over!”, “I keep gaining weight even though I exercise and eat healthy!”  Sound like you or anyone you know?  Have you been wondering “what’s wrong with me?!?” Well you aren’t alone and in fact, you may be expressing the often heard inflammation lamentation.  That is, expressing some common symptoms […]





You and Your Bestie…

Who laughs when you laugh, cries with you, kicks your butt when you need it and calms you down when you are enraged? If your answer is your best friend (which may in fact, be your spouse!), you’d be in good company and likely, enjoying some significant health benefits as a result. If your answer […]





Your mom wears army boots!

Did you ever hear that growing up? Or something equally taunting? We’ve all had experience with school yard teasing, squabbles with friends or even encounters with bullies. Some of us have had experiences that were far beyond the kind of things that are common place in childhood, life altering experiences with traumatic memories….. We all […]





Quit Yer Complainin’!

Of course that comment applies to me too… Have you ever noticed how much people complain? How much you complain? Think about the conversations you’ve had, witnessed or wanted to have in the past week. How many were positive? How many included positive statements about other people? Yeah, I thought so. Not too many, right? […]

Up Above the Clouds

One of my recurring nightmares since I was young, was missing something important like showing up too late for a university class, missing a plane or even missing the transit bus!  The Psychology majors are thinking “Smacks of early toilet training….”.  Ok, so I have more stuff to deal with in therapy but who doesn’t?

Weed…should you do it?

I know what you’re thinking…she’s talking about WEED? No, I’m talking about weeds, as in the ones in your garden! I was in my garden the other day and thinking how much constant effort is required to keep the weeds from taking over the garden. Seriously, leave it for a few days or a week and […]
