How good does it feel to take a dip in a cold pool during those hot and humid days of summer?
This past month my church community has been focused on the theme of Turbulence and Transition. The topic felt appropriate given the season we’re in here in Toronto, as we move (for the most part) out of the winter and into spring.

Looks like spring has finally arrived; the skies are blue, the sun is shining and there are runners on the road. Yes, its that time of year when many decide to lace up the sneakers and hit the pavement.
Let’s just be clear. Skinny is not normal for most people, though it is for a select group of individuals. If we only watched and listened to mainstream media I would understand why you would think that everyone has the opportunity to be skinny if they just work hard enough.
We all know the benefits of technology; it helps bring down production costs, it makes communication easier, and helps us become more efficient at many complex tasks and processes. But it seems, these advancements may have come with a cost to our general health.
“To what are you called?” This is something my mother would often ask me and others growing up. She’d look you straight in the eye with a deadpan stare, the eyebrows artfully painted on her face raised high, and ask, “Is God calling you? And if so, to what are you being called?”
One thing that really grinds my gears is when I see people (especially men) posting online, telling woman to do squats so they can make their booty bigger. The only thing that enrages me more is the women who comment on theses posts asking these same people for more information.

This season tends to be the season of “should's”. The resolutions we should be sticking to, the workouts we should be doing and the detoxes we should be starting.

We all get scared sometimes. Present company included. I was afraid when I moved to Canada in 2003. I was afraid to start new in a place where I didn't know anybody. I was afraid to start a new job with no friends, no mentors or sponsors. I was afraid when I wanted to fall in love.

So, how are those New Year’s Resolutions coming along? The rum cake, shortbread and sorrel? Yeah, I ate them and thoroughly enjoyed each and every bite.
