Full Circle. It All Started Here.

I had just turned 15 when I joined my first band. I remember that day clearly. It was what Dr. Phil would call: A Defining Moment.

I was in the choir room at our school when our teacher brought in Two (long haired) Dudes along with two students from my school. One of the students, skinny…


Refilling The Well aka My Autumn Vacation.

Less than 24 hours after the last day of my extended work term, my significant other and I packed up our dog Scarlett, our bikes and drove to Sedona.

 

After 8 months of working at BC Wildfire Service during what was historically our worst fire season in history, I needed time to regenerate.

 

Most people like to…


“Just outside your comfort zone is where magic happens.”

At the end of last month, I didn’t like how I was operating.

I was stagnating and knew I needed to do something about it.
The solution? The 7 Day Comfort Zone challenge. My friend and support coach Jaime was going out of her own comfort zone to put her first course together, so being the…


Know Who Your Friends Are – Part 2

KNOW WHO YOUR FRIENDS ARE (PART 2)

 

We all have those friends… the ones we hang out with who usually run us down a path that we don’t want to go.

As a singer I have several “friends” that are just too much drama; I talked about them in Part 1.

Now, I’d like to introduce you…


Know Who Your Friends Are – Part 1

We all had (or still have) those friends.

You know, the ones we hang out with who usually run us down a path that we don’t want to go, or in that moment of clarity, we know we shouldn’t (but sometimes follow anyway).

As a singer there are several “friends” I learned that I just didn’t need…


November Faves

What makes you happy?

I’ve been working on my Shadow Self again. Trying to find some light in darkness.
If you’ve read my previous blogs, or listen to my music, you know I tend to write a lot about dark things.
In one of my fave books, The Dark Side Of the…

 “Don’t ever be ashamed of loving the strange things that make your weird little heart happy.” ~Elizabeth Gilbert

 

It happened again the other day.

I stopped by the coffee shop. I was wearing my Kiss Hoodie as usual, one of my favorite items of clothing. An acquaintance of mine who just happened to be there asked me….


New Year’s Resolutions: DON’T DO IT!!

I’m serious. There is no worse way to start your New Year off!

Resolutions are stupid and they’re made to be broken. Seriously.

Say this in your head: My resolution for 2016 is (fill in the blank).

Now check in with the feeling in your belly…

Doesn’t everything inside you just tense up?

No? Cool. And if you can make…


To Fail or… is it really?

Excerpt from my iPhone.

As the adrenalin ebbs for a moment, I am writing this on my phone as I sit outside and try to gather my sanity. This is the first time in a week that I’ve actually had a chance to take a real honest to goodness, not sit at my desk monitoring the…


Confessions

I’ve always been rebellious; a warrior.

Maybe it started when I entered this world feet first. Or when I tried walking despite the hip deformity I was born with. It didn’t stop me; I’d just drag myself everywhere (fortunately the surgery was a success, it could’ve gotten even weirder without it).

I didn’t want to be told…
