~ Blog Evolution ~

Someone once told me : "On se fait le cadeau d'une vie"
...loosely translated: "Give yourself the Gift of Life"

 It kinda stuck with me, and helped me push through a very difficult chapter, helping me realize what I did want out of life. I'm in a better place now, and feel I need to dot a few i's were the blog is concerned.

I kinda put My World on the backburner lately,
all the while knowing I couldn't stay away
for too long.

I went in and out a few times, going from over 100 posts per month to sometimes none. My interests and content has changed over time, that's a given. Although, I feel the essence is the same, because I'm still me... 
But I find myself looking for a new blog purpose.

I know I enjoy sharing random parts of myself that feel slightly taboo in my current reality... but strangely, this blog, and the likes of y'all, often feels more like home to me.

When I started my blog, it truly was an "Escape" for me, and I hoped, for others as well. Definitely a way to express myself, that is still the case, but what I get out of it is evolving.
Creating is my focus now. 

My life has totally changed over the past few years,
opening doors that once felt so unreachable.

                                                                                   I'm learning to trust my instincts and not let other's opinions influence my decisions. One of the biggest hurdles for me was to recognize all the self imposed limitations I had put on myself. Basically, just taking responsibility for your life sucking. 
Seems simple, but realizing that the things you've thought about, and actions you took over the span of your life have lead you to NOW, makes one see that you CAN take your life in the direction that you want. And have the things and experiences you want, by simply changing your thoughts and actions.

I read over the last few lines, and think: Dah, that's like obvious. But we get stuck in ruts, bad habits and routines, and perpetuate the very thing we want to avoid by allowing it to occupy our minds, and assuming that outside circumstances are controlling us. I've always been one to put up a fight against those "circumstances" ...unfortunately, within the context of those damn self imposed limitations. So I never got very far.

Putting myself in the creative mindset has definitely helped me push through the crap and find joy in life again ;-)

I can no longer view my world as an "Escape"
as I prefer my Life to be one I enjoy,
not one I look to get away from.

And since My Blog is part of My Life, I will continue to express my interests, and all the weird taboo parts of me. In the hopes that you find here something that fits for you in one way or another.

To many more years of randomness !!
I'm happy you are here... ;-)

Quick Trip to My Woodlot

 I took a drive out to My Woodlot yesterday. Hadn't been there in over a month.
I mostly wanted to make sure everything was ok out there, you never know, eh ;-)
And also, mom and my daughter came with, so it was nice to show them
what I had done so far.

I brought some water for the new plants, just in case, but to my delight, they were doing awesome with no help from anyone. I was a little worried since they're not settled in yet, and it hadn't rained for a few weeks. But they looked good, so I guess that means
they like their new home.

Then I saw this little guy. Looks like somebody just had a snack.

I'll be sure to get more pictures soon :-)

Roll up the Rim ~ Come and Gone

My fellow Canadians know all too well
about this dilemma.

I would get my coffee thinking...
"This one's a car :-)" or better yet...
"A shitload of money!!! :D"
But nope :(

They should save some ink and write "Sorry" instead :P
Comme vraiment là?!! Trois cafés p'un beigne... Grrrr

Then there's the BONUS RIM ??
