Start Over With New Possibilities

Not all our days will be the same… Some days may not have a good outcome. Some people may not have been truthful to you…

There will be days when you won’t feel the love…  Or days when the things you wanted most might not happen… We don’t always get everything we want right away….. But do you know what?

Every day we get a new chance to start over with new expectations and throughout the day, we gain experience and grow as a person. A bad day will not define who you are! It is just a bad day and tomorrow will be better!  Just breathe and remember, tomorrow is another day to start over with new possibilities!  ❤️

Choices… we are always bombarded with choices…

To have this instead of that… Or that instead of this!

Make the choice that you can live with. You decide!

No matter which choice you make, there will always be someone who won’t like it. There will always be someone who will talk behind your back or judge you by your choices. They might even doubt your abilities but you have to be like the stream, and keep going. Keep choosing wisely! Ultimately, your happiness depends on it!

Do What is Right for your Soul!

 

It’s amazing on what you come up with while drinking coffee:

Many times, we get stuck wondering about situations and the people that crossed our path. We put too much pressure on others and their actions or non-actions that it consumes most of our energy and time.

Do not do that to yourself. Just let things be. Let people go if you must or give them space to sort their own things. We are all dealing with our own issues and situations, and the last thing we want is to feel pressured into something we still have not sorted out on our own.

In this terrible time, all that people want is a little patience and acceptance, because time, we all have right now. Don’t fight for closure or even ask for explanations. People might not be in the same place as you and they might not understand your point of view, but if you give them time and space, they might come around and let you in to their world. Focus on yourself and what you have going on, so you don’t fall into the chase mode.

You must do what is right for your soul, because no one knows you better like you know yourself. ❤️

Happy Mother’s Day

Mothers Day Flowers

 

Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful mothers and everyone that is playing the role of a mother day in and day out! A mother is someone who loves unconditionally and that puts others first and their selves last.

                This year a little different. During all this uncertainty, let us all be safe. In times like these that we all must stick together and see the big picture and find something more positive out of it… We have more time to spend with our family. With all this rushing and busyness, homeschooling the kids, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and frustrated, but we can only do what we can. Do not put pressure on yourself…just take it one day at a time. Soon, things will normalize but until then, stay safe!

 

Enjoy what Life has to Offer

Don’t fret about things… Just be open to all the possibilities and when you least expect it, everything that you desire will come to you at the right time! Imagine that it is already yours. You create your reality! If we focus on the good things and the things that we want we are automatically sending a message to our abundant Universe who will do its magic to bring it to reality. Your thoughts have a strong power. Make the most of it and there is no limit to where you can go! Just remember to show your gratitude and enjoy the real beauty that life has to offer! ❤️

Break it Down

Procrastination will rob you of your sense of purpose and of fulfillment. It is a tiny virus that slowly gets into your whole being and selfishly eats away at your creative energy that otherwise had you not been attacked by the bug of putting off what you could do today, you would have accomplished what you intended of doing.

Stick to a plan. Make a list. Break down everything into tiny parts. Once you do what needs to be done, you won’t be overwhelmed but actually have a sense of pride of all that you’ve accomplished.

Perhaps waking up a little earlier when everyone is still fast asleep or waiting after everyone has gone to bed and the chores are all done… We only have 24 hours in the day but we all deserve to do things for ourselves. Things that bring us joy and happiness. 

Sometimes we have all the time for others and to do things for others that we forget about ourselves…  Breaking our tasks down will allow us a bigger time frame to get things done and before you know it, you just might have more time to do more of the things you love! ❤️

Worry about yourself

 

In times of doubt, remember to just let go of all the idle talk that is slowly robbing you of your true potential! 

Clear away those voices that day in and day out tell you that your not worthy… YOU ARE! You are worthy because inside of you is a star ⭐️ waiting to shine! Too many times we stay stuck because we are too busy on the wrong frequency of our lives to actually pull through into the direction we are meant to travel! We tend to be more concerned of what others might think 🤔 if we do this or that, or on what others are doing and we forget what’s in our hearts ♥️!  Your heart speaks wonders.. you just have to listen! 

Worry about yourself and everything else will follow! 

Always Shine Bright

Don’t be the reason you don’t succeed… Don’t listen to the voices inside of you or the others telling you that your not capable! 

We are all capable of great things. We are all worthy of success and happiness. There’s no need to prove anything to no one. Only to do it all for ourselves without anyone’s approval or consent.

We live in a shallow world filled with people waiting to dismiss or criticize anybody’s attempt for happiness or success. When in reality everyone’s entitled to their day in the sun!

It’s time to stop looking elsewhere for approval and look inside ourselves for the answers…  Always shine bright! ❤️

Be Extra Vigilant

 

This is the letter I wrote to the Principal of my autistic child’s school… please be extra vigilant to what your children are watching on television and the internet… 

 

I’m trying to comprehend what would make a six year old child, perhaps almost seven… nonetheless in Grade 1, place a substance in another child’s water bottle… with the intention of harming them!

I cannot fathom what would make a child who is merely innocent supposedly, using the words “making a potion to kill Sergio” at such a young age… As any parent, if it were their child, they would be livid! After speaking to Esko and Ameya ( I apologize if I wrote down her name wrong), they were kind enough to let me know what Maya S said… All the planning that was taken place… that is not appropriate for a six year old to do! 

Do you want to know what the strangest part of this is…. that yesterday my son did not have his dinner because he said his tummy was hurting and sadly I brushed it off, thinking that he was just making it up because soon bedtime would be approaching or he would be missing his favourite cartoon show! How do we know this hasn’t happened yet? Truly no one knows but the perpetrators really…

As if that isn’t heartbreaking enough, being autistic and this happening to you, but having it done by your best friend as well! So I guess that old adage is right, “with friends like these who needs enemies!’. Andreus and Sergio were like two peas in a pod, but I did correct myself when I said were! 

Something has to be done… and talking will not be enough… This isn’t like kids will be kids… one pushed one and the other pushed back… this is a serious issue and has to be dealt in that matter! They have to be suspended a day or two so they see how serious it is to place substances on other people’s water! Talking is not enough… talking about killing shouldn’t be in a child’s vocabulary! One thing that I regret was tearing up a paper that I received from Maya S before the Christmas Break which she wrote down things that weren’t so nice about Sergio… again I brushed it off! 

It’s really not fair that I have to keep Sergio in tomorrow and probably even Friday to give him time to digest everything and hopefully forget about while they go to school and get a slap on the wrist…

We would like a copy of everything documented and if nothing is done then I have no other choice but to go to the police because really that is what I should of done today! I’m not doing it only because I have faith in your team and that at least their poor choices will give them a consequence so that in the future they’re won’t be anymore copycats… This is very serious… it could have harmed my son and for that I am taking him to the doctor to get checked out tomorrow! 

Just last month there was a woman that was being poisoned by her co-worker at the Bay with Lysol… and she got fired and charged and young kids do this which is equally serious and alarming… talking is not enough in this situation! They have to feel the impact they’ve caused whether they realized it fully or not! 

This is a safety issue… How are we supposed to feel safe at work knowing that our child could be poisoned or seriously hurt! 

Thank-you for your time and understanding with us… we appreciate it… just like we know it may be very difficult for you too and we understand your tough position! We just want this to be dealt as a serious issue that it is!

Look at Me

 

I work in a Construction Union in the Administration Department and we have a lot of members that are women that unfortunately somehow still feel discriminated because of their gender. I wrote this in hopes that one day we all could see each other as individuals and look beyond genders and see people as people! 

 

 

Look at me!

What do you see?

Do you see a girl frightened away?

Or do you see a person waiting for just one chance to be accepted for all that comes!

Look at me!

What do you see?

I am a fighter! A survivor! I build structures and design dreams! 

I am waiting to fit in! To show this world that anything is possible! 

Look at me!

What do you see?

Do you see my struggles day in day out that I’ve overcome and all those setbacks that I’ve endured.

Take a walk in my shoes, see the world through my eyes.

You’ll see my strive to keep going resulting on my best comebacks

Look at me!

What do you see?

I am stronger now because I believed in myself! I woke up and realized that life is worth living 

That as Lou Holtz said, “life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it”. I choose to move forward!

Look at me!

What do you see?

Do you see all the storms that I’ve travelled through…The rain doesn’t last forever and the sun will come out and I will shine through 

Look at me!

What do you see?

Do you see my biggest victories come from my hardest pain

When I thought I couldn’t continue I gave it one more shot 

Here I am, in this big great nation

Which was built with lots of sweat

Look at me! 

What do you see?

Do you see that all my hard work and dedication 

Will finally pay off and be appreciated as a team regardless of my race gender religion or sexual orientation 

Look at me!

What do you see?

I am a mother and daughter but I am much more than that 

I design highways and of build houses

Work from dusk to sunset

Manage my house and keep the peace 

Look at me!

What do you see?

I am here to serve a purpose 

To be the voice that you hear just before giving up!

To let you know that when someone says you can’t show them how it’s done! 

I wasn’t always that way but I fought hard 

Beyond many sleepless nights and many broken dreams that just needed one more try to come true

Life is all around us! Construction is life! We are all bound to each other sculpting our dreams one day at a time!

When someone doubts you, keep going! Prove them wrong! 

Look at me!

What do you see?

Determination to change the world one Brick at a time!
