I want to say this is "learning" to listen, but in reality, it is a relearning or a returning.
When we are born, when we are young, all we know to do is listen to ourselves. We feel something, and we share it with those around us - even before we have words. Actually, especially before we have words. My mum reminds me that when I was a baby, I would "tell" everyone around every tiny detail that was going on within my human body! This is...
I don't know if I've ever, or recently, explained this concept of The Simply. I'll dive into it in a separate post, but the basis of the idea is that, as humans, we have a tendency to complicate everything. The harder we work for something, the better the results must be, right? Wrong.
My purpose with The Simply is to provide tools and services for life to be simple!

This is hitting me hard these past couple of weeks: Reality is what you make it!
Think about that for a moment...what does that mean for you?
For me, it means I am experiencing a version of "reality". This particular reality has been made from my previous experiences and the beliefs and stories that have been created through those experiences. Some of those beliefs and stories may have been conscious, but many of them were likely...
It's taken me a long time to post this. This originated in September 2017. Something hit me during a trip to San Francisco. Something unexpected!
It started on the Wednesday night that I arrived...we were staying at a hostel for one night and, upon showing up, I discovered we didn't have a private washroom, as I had expected. We were in a room with a shared hall washroom.
And I did not react well to this!
It took me until the...

Learning is messy!
You gain new knowledge, you get excited to implement that knowledge, you try out that new knowledge, and...you fall...flat.on.your.face!
What happens when you fall?
I fluctuate between beating myself up and ignoring that it happened. Honesty. It can be ugly, but there you go. That's my current reality.
I am trying to get better at acknowledging the potential for growth, and...
Do you play small? I certainly do.
What is that!? Why is that? Doesn’t that seem counter-intuitive? And yet, we all seem to have this same disposition/fear/shared consciousness.
This is a cliché question, but, for real: What would you do if you knew you wouldn’t fail? Put differently:
