Snowing ugg… brrr…Hello April.

slede

It’s snowing here in Mississauga on March 30th–every year I forget that spring doesn’t really start until April. As much as I love the snow and winter overall, I think there’s a sense of fatigue and eagerness for more sun and green right now!

I am in Mississauga till April 4th – then I go to Barrie.  I have another photo-shoot planned while in Barrie.  This time indoors. I’m thinking bunny ears/thong…black something…..

March has been a fantastic month – looking forward to April….

So excited to be going to Kitchener!

Oh Goodness! I am so excited for Kitchener tomorrow!!

I travel because I need to, because distance and difference are the secret ingredient to creativity. When I get home, home is still the same, but something in my mind changes, and that changes everything.

“The free soul is rare, but you know it when you see it – basically because you feel good, very good, when you are near or with them.”

See you soon……

If you want to date please call…..

images;;;;;;;;

There might be people out there who enjoy getting these texts, but I don’t trust a single one of them. Hey you available, Hey, Hi, …………..

“Hey” by itself is a word, but nothing gets my heart pumping and my pores sweating like seeing those three letters alone in my inbox – /text – 99 percent of the time it leads to nothing, but you only have to have a bomb dropped on you once to never trust it again.

Unfortunately, some people forget that there are certain situations in life where a phone call would be more appropriate. example – like introducing yourself, booking appointment.

If you want to talk to someone, call. If you are texting someone because you’re bored, figure out something else to do.

It honestly means so much more if someone actually picks up the phone to call because texting feels like such a cop-out since it’s so impersonal and you can also really get to know a person on a much deeper level if you talk on the phone rather then over a text.

Don’t get me wrong, if we have met and we are setting up a date or simple just seeing how one or the other is doing – I love that!!!! I do not want to discourage some of our chats with those I know via text. I love to text when I may be too busy to deal with much, and do love the texting with those I have dated!!! I admire you fine gentlemen and ladies….

So call me “old fashioned” and “out of date,” but until I can actually feel a hug or a kiss through my phone, or see the look of a person gives me when they are setting up an appointment, I’ll take a real conversation any time. And although you cannot feel a hug or a kiss through a phone call, or see a person’s expression, their tone of voice, and the way they string words together means so much more than words on screen.

I don’t want to put in effort for a person who doesn’t want to put in too much effort to interact with me. It’s bad form.

If we’re going to meet, I want to see that you are serious about me…

Seriously. It’s not that hard to press “Dial.”

Wishing you all a fantastic week ahead…..

 

 

Looking forward to more travel adventures!!

“To awaken in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world.”

Cheers to more travels, new friends, friends, and adventures!!!

Hitting rock bottom!!

i-f9zFBLt-M

I was really inspired by this encounter, and yet emotional about it.  I am always focused on my clients needs/wants.

“Stephanie I think I have hit rock bottom”

As I placed my hands on his shoulders, and said – “Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom before you rebuild” 

He just stared back at me with this incredibly awed expression, and said yes you are right.

Finding the root of the problem should be your long term goal. In the meantime if you can pick one little action or area to improve, making progress, any progress will help build your esteem and give you momentum to get yourself up and feeling good about life.

Remember…I’m not a counselor. I’m not a doctor. I’m not an expert at anything…I’ve simply experience the sum total of many life events and have overcome rock bottom,  relationships,  and various life obstacles…so I can relate and give people direction.

As Mr. A was getting ready to leave,  I said – “Your life doesn’t need to fall apart before you make the necessary changes”!  There is only one way to go now…that is up!!!

Know that people are around that can help you thrive and survive.

Happy Spring Friends!!!

Spring is here! It’s time to come out of hibernation, shake off our grumpy attitudes and layers of clothing.

After having a cold, dark week –  that seemed to last forever, we deserve to enjoy the longer-lasting sunshine, chirping birds of spring and the happiness they’ll bring.

 Warmer temperatures to follow, green grass, trees and flowers in bloom!  Isn’t it delightful! Speaking of delightful…I had  so much fun St. Patrick’s Day – some Irish music, green beer and dancing!

The month of March is quickly passing us by. Hope everyone that was on March break last week had some time to enjoy the break.

What makes me happy is the promise of warmer, sunny spring days.

Let’s all do the happy dance.

Happy St. Paddy’s Day week..

St. Patrick’s Day is near, and that means it’s time to celebrate all things Irish and green!

Do you have your green clothing all ready to go for this St. Patrick’s Day? Whether you’re Irish or simply just Irish at heart, March 17th is the day people across the world celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by attending religious services, parades, and lots of eating and drinking of traditional Irish foods and beverages!

However you choose to celebrate, I am sending you wishes for a safe and happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! 🙂 I wish lots of creativity to everyone.

Cheers

Home all week- Mississauga.

 I am travelling every week, so coming home is one of the most beautiful things. It’s a funny thing coming home. Nothing changes. Everything looks the same, feels the same, even smells the same. You realize what’s changed, is you.

No matter who you are or where you are, instinct tells you to go home. My instincts are telling me to stay in Mississauga this week. 

 

 

 

 

Staying in Barrie for a few days.
