    Imagine this. It's Wednesday. You're enjoying your day. And then you hear it. The ding of one of your dating apps. And you're like - awesome! Someone messaged me back or messaged me first. Basically, you're excited because online dating isn't easy, and so progress is progress, right? Wrong.

    Oh My Thoughts: Body Positivity

    Throughout my years, I've always struggled with my weight. I've fluctuated in my sizing so much since my teens. My confidence would fluctuate along with my weight. Some days I'd feel super confident in an outfit I was wearing, and the next year I could be wearing the same outfit or a similar one and want to add a cardigan, or a sweater, something to hide the body parts I was suddenly so self conscious about. My arms. My stomach. My thighs. It changed depending on the day. Depending on the outfit.

    Living With Alz Series: LTC One Year In

    It's crazy how much can change in one year. Back in January I reflected on my 2018 and all the adventures I went on, and one thing I didn't really focus on was mom going into the Long Term Care home. I touched on it while reminiscing a few weeks later, but I wanted to dedicate an entire post to this journey our family has been on over the last year.

    Oh My Thoughts – Mental Health in the Workplace

    I've written and re-written this post a bunch of times. Sometimes I sit here and I wonder, what can I say here? I know that this is my blog, and I can say what I want to. But sometimes I worry that certain people, if they come across a post, will get the wrong idea. The wrong opinion. And not that anyone's opinion but my own should matter, but there are relationships I've built over the years that I don't want to speak ill of. And I think some of the words I typed could've been misconstrued, and my message would have been lost.

    Oh My Quotes – 10 Quotes I’ve Loved Over The Years

    Quotes, whether they be just words someone has spoken aloud, or from a book, or a movie - they seem to scratch their way into my soul. It sounds cheesy, and a bit sappy, but it's the truth. I am obsessed with the words others have spoken as I try and find my own voice. This blog has been a great outlet, but I'm still working on it.

    Living With Alz Series: Reminiscing

    I have an app on my phone called "TimeHop". I'm sure some of you are familiar with it, and others might not be. The app is connected to my different social media profiles, and works like the "Memories" page on Facebook. It pulls posts from this day, years in the past. So today, April 6 2019, it pulled a post from April 6 2016 - the day that my mother had her first visit with a PSW.

    Music Monday – Moon Vs Sun

    Moon Vs. Sun consists of Chantal Kreviazuk, and Our Lady Peace frontman (and her husband) Raine Maida. I've followed Chantal for years, and have always been a fan of OLP. I remember when we were at one of her shows, and the topic of Moon Vs. Sun came up - and I instantly got so excited. Two of my favourites coming together to create an album - how could you go wrong?
