Good morning !

This morning I’ve been puttering around watching ted talks.  If your ever unsure of what to do with yourself in the morning ted talks is a great choice.  Motivatiin for whatever you’d like to focus your day on.  Mine this morning was the skills of self confidence.  There’s no magic button!, but repetition is key. With anything the more we practice the better we will get, repetition of something enough makes it a skill no longer new. I can relate this in my life with my new job.  It is still a skill I am learning , I can resort only to repetition and persistence to build my self confidence. Knowing this makes my self talk more reassuring and kind.  Anyways, hope the sky shines on you today. You are beautiful. Stay greatful xoxo


On the road to Qualicum Beach today! Sun is out and I’m feeling fresh 😊. Lots of books stores here, I hope everyone’s enjoying their weekend. Much love, 4418599E-8D56-4A5A-8979-55A6335DA1F0

Just do You


Welcome 2018, I know it’s February but it’s a good time for me to ask: how’s your year going so far ?  A lot of people make New Years resolutions, did you?  I did, this is my year of building relationships with myself and others.  Alcoholism is a selfish disease, it stripped me of self and tore apart any sort of healthy relationships.   The confusing thing is that this is a value of mine that is strong, meaningful relations.  I look forward to 2018 that’s forsure.  My second goal is to drink more water,… seems to be quite difficult for me some days!

Update: The first month was great for me, full of change.  Moved into a cute basement suite, Mom came to visit, Chris moved to Nanaimo, started spray tanning people at work… it’s been busy.  I feel strong, happy, and hopeful.  I do tend to be worrying a bit more than usual.  I realize I am having trouble staying in the moment.  Anxiety stems from looking into the past or future, if I can slow down my thoughts to the moment and remember just for today I can usually calm myself.  That and make a list hehe, another damn list, gotta love em!

Got new specs and my mop freshened up!  Lots of love to you my lumineers xoxo


Turn up

This month we focus on turning up the soil, in other terms digging deep.  Which is fitting because November has been full on rain which does just that! I have been focusing on speaking my truth to what comes up and through that I find peace.  Peace in our lives is a gift not to take lightly.  When I am grounded and in a safe enviornment that suppprts me emotionally I am able to honour my feelings and find peace.  I am fortunate to have that in my life today at the roost. The sober house I live in.  It has been a slow journey but each day brings new awareness and growth.  I realize now what a gift it is to be around people who love themselves.  We all take up space, and it is important to understand what space you take up.  When I let go and love myself it allows others around me in and a supportive connection can be made.  Rambles.  Just some head thoughts.

November Chills

Ì wonder if you forgot about me?  It has been awhile since I last wrote to you, a long while.  A lot has gone on in my world and I am feeling a strong urge to start writing again…this is an inspiring feeling to have as I was not sure it would return.  It is like my paintings my creativity comes and goes in spurts.  It’s like a game of snakes and ladders.  So here I am November 9th 2017 and the stars aligned and led me to pick up my trusty iPad(thank you jane) and write.  As posts go on I’m sure bits and pieces of where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to will come to light but for now I just wanted to say hi.  I hope your well.

My Love xoxo




Thinking of eveŕyone, it’s another snowy day here!  Had a good morning workout sesh and I’m feeling fine.  I have a good feeling about March and am excited for what it entails.  Yesterday I had to drop someone off downtown and while I waited decided to pop into the thrift store!  Salmon Arm doesn’t have the best vintage shops, but if you go early you can sometimes find a good item.  Like my nice leather belt I found, it is so oerfect, and I’ve been needing a solid belt for some time now.  A belt can really pull an outfit together. Like the one I’m wearing today!  Total mauve everything, and a new pink scrunch I bought from adrenes.

Gotta run!


Love Andrea
