I keep track of my aha moments! I know, right? That might be weird? Please, someone, tell me you do too.

It started when I decided to erase: “where did the time go” from my lexicon. Well, because I wanted to know where the time had gone, and I wanted to know what I was thinking during that time. Covid especially made me feel like we had all lost a year.

So, here is a select (because you really don’t want to know all of them) and random list of thoughts that made me say “aha”. Some were inspired by books and podcasts, while others came from conversations and personal experiences.


    1. Great keynote speakers, podcast hosts, authors are generous people. Generous with their ideas, hearts, souls, and stories.
    2. Creativity is not an escape but the truest form of ourselves.
    3. How purpose-driven leaders are changing the world for the better shakes my world in the best possible way.
    4. Grieving for the loss of the children of the residential schools hurts. Learning more about Truth and Reconciliation is a powerful and difficult journey.
    5. “Don’t take criticism from someone you would not take advice from.” – Jamie Kern Lima
    6. Cleaning out my inbox is not a good use of my time!
    7. “Stay curious just a little bit longer.” – Michael Bungay Stainer
    8. You can’t get the right answer to the wrong question.
    9. The sheer joy of sharing in positive experiences. Investing in positivity changes everything.
    10. You can wish for many things for your kids, but the greatest of those wishes is that they have true and loyal friends to share their lives with.
