Soar above your problem

Soar Above Your Problem

Soar above your problem

Do you remember the first time you took the plane? It’s usually nerve wracking. You don’t really know what is suppose to happen, in other words you don’t know what’s normal. You notice every little noise, you might even question what the pilot is doing – as if we could do better. Then the plane starts shaking, gains more power and momentum, soon you realize, the wheels are off the ground which means you are flying. Let that sink in for a moment. You might have still been nervous then but seeing the sun bright and shinning above the clouds was an incredible wonderful sight.

We live in a society that praises busyness. We wake up in the morning, rush to go to work, get our work done as fast as we can and rush home. Then we eat fast or eat fast-food and go on with other activities before going to bed. And when we have a minute, we check our phone! I have to say I’m guilty of some of those but I’m trying to change.

The Simplicity Guide to Your Relationships

The Simplicity Guide to Your Relationships

This is a simple guide that you can use to evaluate each of your relationships. This guide is not meant to be exhaustive or the ultimate authority but to give you a practical workflow to simplify your life by helping you focus on the most important people or group of people. [tweet this]

This guide might sound harsh but it’s meant to make sure you don’t get stuck and to propel you forward. At each stage of our life, we need to be taught, we need to teach and we also need people who support who we are, our values and our goals. I hope this helps you prioritize your relationships.

I had asked that question a long time ago but I discovered lately that it is very beneficial to make that inquiry on a regular basis.

The origin of JF

The Origins of JF

Baby JF

A few weeks ago, my aunt and my uncle celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary. At the party, my cousin offered a simple but powerful toast. He expressed his gratefulness for the values he was taught, including the importance of a strong marriage and the respect of others. He also extended his gratitude to the grand-parents, aunts and uncles. And I must say that I feel the same about my parents and both sides of the family.

I recently tweeted “Dream big, make it happen, but never forget where home is!” [tweet this]. But one small tweet was not enough to express all I needed to express. To me, dreaming big is important and so is home which is my supportive family and friends.
