I want to be…


Someone once told me that beauty is kindness, and honestly, I couldn’t agree more. I want to be known as someone who treats everybody like they’re somebody. I want to greet everyone I see with a smile on my face and wave at strangers. I want to be the person who treats everyone with respect and shows him or her that they matter – kindness matters.

I want to be the girl you will never forget. I want to be the person who attracts others just because of the way I carry myself. I want to be someone who is fun to be around.

I want to be the person who makes people feel alive. I want to inspire others to be nobody but themselves. I want to help people discover their passions and motivate them to set them on fire. I want to fill people’s hearts and souls with positive vibes and make them believe that they are somebody. I want everybody to know that they are valued, and important. There isn’t a soul on this Earth who doesn’t deserve the world and I strive to make sure nobody forgets that.

No matter how many compliments I receive or how many times I hear the words, “your beautiful”, come out of someone’s mouth, I will never let any of it get to my head. I’m not someone who is full of myself or believes that I’m better than anyone else. I don’t boast about how great I am or talk about the things I’ve accomplished.  I don’t prefer to be the center of attention.

There is something special about being humble and I pray that I am a true image of that.



Friends come and go!!!!


I truly believe that everyone we meet, we meet for a reason. We have encountered this specific person for a purpose. We have friends who remain, friends who come in our lives but soon depart and friends who just pass by our daily lives. 

Sometimes people are just passing by anyway.  It’s easier that way.  Relationships between people are not easy, or too easy,  Sometimes there is no point in looking back, because you’ve already opened another page of your life and everyone you know is just a story now. There is no need for attachment. We will simply meet another/ others, with their stories, ambitions, dreams simple and not so simple lives. Don’t close those doors, or windows, just let them all pass through your ‘home’.

Sometimes they have fulfilled their purpose in our lives as the Universe has so deemed. Someone else is on their way.

Every person we encounter teaches us something, about them or about ourselves. Sometimes the lessons are very brief, and sometimes they last a lifetime.

 When our friendships end, it’s really just a sign from The Universe saying we need to head down a new path. Stop focusing on why, what if – these are toxic questions that create an abundance of noise in our lives. Instead, begin to take the risk down a new direction. With an open mind you will surprise yourself with the outcome.

So we better cherish those moments till it lasts and make the most of this journey…

The end of August!!!!

Time flies . Can’t believe it’s the end of August already!!  At this time of year, with the nights starting to draw to cooler air, and it is getting darker earlier.

As you think back over the past couple of months, think of the good times. You likely made plenty of memories with friends and loved ones that you will cherish forever.

With summer on its way out, it is time to say goodbye. Saying goodbye is never easy, but you can make it a little better..

There’s still time to fulfill those pieces of summer you’ve been looking forward to since the bleak days of last February. And for those who aren’t fans of warm weather – by the time you blink, the leaves will be falling down.

Go out for lunch at a sidewalk cafe. Enjoy the fading warmth as you dine .

Especially now the weather has cooled down a bit wherever you are. Now you can finally investigate some of that pristine natural beauty you’ve heard so much about, with the added bonus of not sweating to death.

I know, I know, it’s getting cooler. It’s time to open up the windows, and you can still get away with wearing a light jacket for most of it. It’s kind of nice.

Go and enjoy the end of summer before everything is covered in snow and you feel like you’ll never experience the sun on your bare skin again. Things could be much, much worse.

Happy Monday!!!!


Sometimes, I forget to thank the people who make my life happy in so many ways. Sometimes, I forget to tell them how much I really do appreciate them for being an important part of my life. So thank you, all of you, just for being here for me!

I’m sending you a nice warm hug from my heart, a wonderful kiss just to brighten up your day!!!

Have a great day and a beautiful week!!!!


Be you!!!!


You cannot let people scare you.  You cannot go your whole life trying to please everyone  else.  You cannot go through life worried about what everyone else is going to think. Whether it is your hair, clothes, what you have to say, how you feel, what you believe.

You cannot let judgement of others stop you from being you.  Because if you do, you are no longer you.  You are someone everyone else wants you to be.

It’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over.

Be you, the world will adjust, and if they don’t  too bad!!!!



Jealousy will get you know-where!!!!!


Jealousy which is also known as a mental cancer and a jaundice of the soul is basically a type of emotion that instills in your negative thoughts, fear, insecurity, anxiety and all the negative feelings that one can think of. It is referred to as a combination of different emotions which may be anger, disgust, resentment and helplessness. It can be seen in people of every age. We all have experienced this emotion at least once in our lives as it is not possible for anyone to control it completely in spite of knowing that it is bad and even agreeing with this.

A jealous person is left all alone at the end. The same will happen to you if you are a jealous one. You will be having no one with whom you can share your feeling with, who loves you, who will take care of you, who will support you through all the harsh times, yo guide you when you are distracted from your path and who will stand by you no matter what.  Jealousy will take all the persons who love you, away from you and will leave you all alone. Jealousy is a vicious emotion which can ruin your life without you even knowing.

People are taken back by a confident person who knows what they want and is not letting anyone get in her way !

I do not get jealous of people – Jealousy is such a waste of time.  See I go about my life and have a wonderful time – so what is the point????

You know what it is all about – JEALOUSY!!!!!!






A New Happy Place!!!



I have found a new happy place – a new tradition. As the sun goes down, I find myself wandering to my balcony, with my computer, my music and my tea.  I find myself curled up with candles and a blank while I enjoy the nights bliss. A quiet little spot where I collect my thoughts and reflect on my day.

Tonight I am filled with warmth. I am filled with happiness.

So tonight I sit here and reflect on a year. This year I built several new friendships. This year I have been blessed by the universe with love from friends, friends who light my path.

It’s nights like this that I sit, I feel and I smile. Nights like this that remind me just how lucky I am. How fortunate I am to have been able to surround myself with the best of the best – people who bring their own sunshine and help me shine brighter. I am so lucky for the friend who sends me a good morning text every day, for the friend that always asks about how I am doing, the friend who asks for my expert advice, the one who is always looking for trouble to get me into and the ones who just want to share their lives with me. I reflect and a feel full of love.

Tonight I challenge you. Find your happy place, your little tradition. Tonight, find the moon. Find the moon and tell her about your happiness. I hope you reflect and find yourself full of love.



Karma baby!!!!

When people insult you please do not take offense,  do not take it personally, but do listen to their words.  They are telling you how they see the world, and they are telling you the exact negative qualities that they possess.

The law is that one can only see what is in them, regardless if it is what is actually present in reality or not.

I recently had a person write a review about me…. The heading stated stay far away from Stephanie – she is very unfriendly and she kept asking me to hurry up and leave.

Obviously this women or man behind the screen wanted to hurt me and my business.

I was shocked, now I know I am not the best – but that is far from true.  I did not react to it.  The post did come down thru the mods and that person got banned.

We never know what is behind that computer screen, text messages.

Regardless of age. Bullies behind keyboards are still bullies. You’re even more of a coward for hiding behind your computer screen.

It is ok to not like me  – but it is not ok to disrespect me, degrade me, or humiliate me.

Friends lets try to be kind!!!!



It is up to you…. back in Mississauga.

Barrie thank you… See you in the fall ….

You hold the key to your life and your happiness. You can lock yourself in or let yourself out. You can choose to enter. You can choose to leave. You can choose to live in pain or you can choose to make it better. You can choose to spit at and hate relationships or people you surround yourself with or you can simply make better choices.

If you can’t make better choices, make it a better reality. Stop waiting for others to change so your life can change, because the others are waiting for the same thing. It’s stale. Change your expectations, change your attitude… change your life!
