A Great Way to Start the Day #12

Getting up early, and working from home with the sun shining through the window is a great way to start my day!

My dog is lying at feet and his warmth is radiating through my toes. My horses are visible through the window. They too are enjoying the late winter sun and are falling asleep as the stand in the warm, soothing light.

Today is going to be a great day! It’s full of promise and hope for a bright future.

Go and do what you need to do and make the very best of today….make it AMAZING!

This is spring break in Northern Canada.

I may envy the people in Florida because they can go to the beach during spring break but this is the life we have so we try to make the best of it.

IMG_2555It’s an important reminder to love the life you have and make the best of every day.

A Great Way to Start the Day #7

What better way to start the day than receiving a gift in the mail?

A friend of mine who knows Jonathan Field (a natural horse trainer who I very much admire) had him autograph his beautiful, hardcover, at liberty training book and send it to me. It was truly one of the most thoughtful and wonderful gifts I’ve ever received.

Giving a gift for no other reason than because you know the recipient will enjoy it is a wonderful way to spread joy in the world.

Today is pay-it-forward day. Send someone a gift today for no reason and brighten their day. It could be a single flower for a coworker having a rough day or a surprise coffee for your husband or wife.

Joy and hate both spread like a virus. Which would you rather send out in the world today?


A Great Way to Start the Day #6

How about a trip through the Canadian Rocky Mountains?

I’ve made this trip probably hundreds of times in the past ten years and I may have started to take it for granted.

I’ve forgotten that millions of people will never see the magnificence of these mountains, or the brilliance of the white peaks against azure blue sky. How many people will never see grizzly bears, moose or elk either?

What ever your view is, its unique to you, your life and your experiences. Never take what you have, or more importantly, the people in your life for granted.

There’s someone out there wishing they had your life so be grateful rather than envious and enjoy every moment!

A Great Way to Start the Day #3

Clean, crisp, fresh air is one of my favorite ways to start the day.

Even five or ten minutes early in the morning can go a long way to invigorating me and getting my creativity flowing!

Those of you who can enjoy your morning walk sans winter boots or on a beach are very fortunate. However, no one can beat the amazing color of northern sky or the fresh, clean air.

A little video about life on the farm

The last few weeks have been super busy and life altering. I am looking forward to writing later this week about some of my experiences and things I’ve learned along this bumpy road called “Life”.

In the meantime, I made a short video to answer some of the questions I’ve received from my readers about life on the farm.

Sorry about the poor cinematography; it’s hard to expect much from free labor, especially when said laborer is ten years old!

My four year old daughter is a performer at heart and wasn’t very happy that the spotlight wasn’t on her. I hope you get as much of a chuckle out of her singing and chatter in the background as I did.

I hope you enjoy the view into my life and keep the questions coming!

Have a great week,
