Inner peace and Tranquility? It takes practice.

Meditation and Seeking Inner Peace. I’ve been on a spiritual quest all my life; Looking for the truth and seeking out answers to questions that have plagued people for centuries. Who am I? What path am I to follow? What is my purpose? Most often the question is: what the heck is happening or what in …

“Sing a Song”

Good Morning world. I can’t get this song out of my head and had to share it with you. The “la la la la la” part is particularly addictive. I could sing the “la la la la la”‘s all day long. It’s by “The Carpenters”. I didn’t have any idea who sang this song back …

Those Crazy Squirrels

I’m driving down the street and I have to once again slam on my brakes.  It’s suicidal squirrel season. There’s no other explanation for it. I saw the squirrel from a distance. He was sitting upright, watching me approach.  He stood up and turned toward the road. I slowed down.  He made an about-face and …

I feel like Forrest Gump

I feel like Forrest Gump. Do you remember that movie?  It’s my all time favourite. I could watch it a million times. My favourite scene is when Forrest sits on the big old porch and stares out.  Who knows what he’s thinking about, maybe everything that has happened. Maybe he’s not thinking about anything. I …

My confession.

I have over 220 messages in my email inbox at any given time.  I can’t seem to let them go.  My name is Constance and I am an inbox-a-holic. I’ve been hiding it for years. I didn’t think it was a problem. I mean it doesn’t seem to be harming anyone else.  They’re just social …

Mid-LIfe Reinvention, endings and beginnings.

I have a job interview this morning.  I think I caught a cold and it’s raining. This means that the moisture in the air is going to morph my hair into an S.O.S pad style frizzy mess. If I could draw it for you, I would simply sketch a puffy circle of a head with …

Flu season

Flu season has arrived at the Meloche house. I should have suspected in the morning, when my son woke up really cranky and moving really slow. He asked for a ride to school, actually made a bit of a fuss over it.  That’s not like him. He left the car annoyed, seeing as I spent …

Spooky September story- EEK!

I’m going to tell you a spooky story for two reasons.  One, October is just around the corner and it seems to be the month declared for ghosts and haunting and all that biz. Two, I don’t have anything else interesting to talk about. The past week, I’ve been busy, swamped, working and toiling. I’m at …

Football season for my little bear.

My son walked into the kitchen this morning after his shower.  He was wearing his school uniform pant and set his crisp white shirt and his back pack down on the chair.  I looked up from my computer as he turned around to speak to me. I noticed a dark shadow across his chest and …

The Imprints in my mind.

The two-year anniversary of “that week” in October is coming up.  I don’t have it marked on my calendar.  Believe me, I’d rather forget that any of it happened.  I don’t search out the memory; after all, there’s no point in dwelling.  Yet the slow changing of the foliage, the hints of red and gold, …

Mid life renovation- gutted!

Did you ever notice how a person’s home reflects their inner world? It might be filled with stuff, things you just can’t get rid of.  Things you hang onto, maybe from even your childhood.  Some of the things hold the fondest of memories. Some of the things, you have no reasonable explanation for keeping, other …

In honor of Labour Day

It’s Labour Day. Its origins go all the way back to 1872. It was a day inspired by the organization of trade unions to campaign for, improve, and to celebrate worker’s rights. My father was a union man.  He was a supreme negotiator. He was plant chairman for over 35 years. This movement is in …

I’ve met some dogs in my life. Haven’t we all?!?!

I’ve met some dogs in my life. Haven’t we all! Some of these dogs were really difficult and a few almost took me down. Some had a pretty strong bark. Some were all bark and no bite. Some had a bark and a bite. I have to say though, without them, I would not have become …

The Plan and Walking on Sunshine!

Forget the Plan! I’m going to Walk on Sunshine instead! I thought about the plan yesterday; the plan for mid-life reinvention.  It just requires too much…how shall I say it? Planning? I’m choosing instead, to use uncompromising optimism.  I’m going to crank my shine-o-meter up and get into the natural flow of life. It’s the …
