If only.......

Daily Quote from Abraham-Hicks...

See this world as a free world, and see everyone in it as trying—through their individual experiences—to find their way back to that calling, back to that Source Energy. And even though there are billions of them going about it in a way that is different than you would choose, there's no right or wrong way. In other words, bless them all, and get on with the only thing you have any power about, which is opening or closing your vortex to your natural state of Well-Being.


If only we could remember this and stop trying to get other people to see things our way (as if we had the sole monopoly on 'truth'), maybe our world would be a happier place!  Just saying.

EQAO - Provincial Testing....

I just love my students!!  These grade 3 youngsters have an ability to bounce back, no matter what happens. Right now, they are all under the pressure of taking the Ontario Provincial EQAO tests. They have all reminded me that this test has been dubbed by students as:  Evil Questions Attacking Ontario!!  

Once they had been reassured that they should just do their best work, they set to it and many of them actually seemed to enjoy it. That being said, I think they enjoyed the special treats generously donated by their parents!!

This is another example of a community of participants in education, drawing together and pooling resources and time to enable successful outcomes. 

I'm so proud and honoured to have been part of such a community

"As you imagine and visualize and verbalize your new story, in time you will believe the new story, and when that happens, the evidence will flow swiftly into your experience. A belief is only a thought you continue to think; and when your beliefs match your desires, then your desires must become your reality." Taken from

When I was growing up, I remember my sister (who is 16 years older than me - still is!!!) telling me that things are all in my mind. 'I've got a headache', I would cry. 'Think of something else and it will go away!' would be her reply. If had a toothache, she would tell me the same thing. 

My sister loved me (and still does) and she would ultimately come to my aid in the end (if I whined enough!!). 

Years later, I discovered that there was some truth in what she was saying - even though her meaning and my understanding are different. I think she was saying, 'It's in your imaginaition - ignore it and it will disappear'.  How I now understand it is: 'Whatever I give my attention to will become my reality'. 

So, in order to create more of what is pleasing to me, my daily task it is to do all that I can to put into my imagination all the things that I identify that would bring more joy to my life, to tell THAT story, to think about THOSE things, and to give little attention to anything that doesn't feel good. 

I have learned that my emotions are telling me whether the subject upon which I am temporarily focused is serving me well or not (whether I am thinking it, pondering on it, listening to it, or speaking about it).  My emotional guidance system lets me know if I'm on track towards creating an improved life experience from my perspective - rather like a GPS guidance system. It lets me know where I am in relation to where I want to be and guides me to where I want to be, if I follow the signs I receive. 

Therefore, it is my predominant desire each day to look deliberately for things that make feel good when I see them, listen for things that make me feel good when I hear them, and choose thoughts that make me feel good when I think about them. In this way, I am allowing my emotional guidance system to get me into a good-feeling place where all the well-being I have desired is already gathered and is waiting for me to be vibrationally in accord with it. Then, it MUST materialize. It's Law!

However, I don't want to fall into the trap of visualizing something in order to make it happen (to change what is) because then I'm mixing my vibration in the noticing that what I desire is not yet present. I want to feel good - not to change anything - but purely for the fact that it feels good to feel good.

My purpose in life is to be joyful. And I can choose to move in that direction at any time, in any place, and under any circumstances. 

Therein lies my freedom!

Don't cast a clout, until May is out???

This picture - taken at the side of our house just one week ago - gave me evidence that Spring had finally arrived. Along with the accompanying heatwave, the lighter mornings, and the ample blossoms everywhere, the promise of a beautiful summer was established firmly in my eskrow!

What happened????  I took a brief trip to a store last night - and had to take my winter coat! Such is life in Ontario!  

Back in the U.K., my mom used to say, 'Don't cast a clout, until May is out!' I was never sure whether that meant that we shouldn't discard our winter clothes until the month of May had begun, or had ended, or whether it was when the little mayflower came out. Does anyone have a British background who could enlighten me? Has anyone ever heard that saying? 

I would be appreciative of your comments and insight....

Have a wonderful day.

One of my most exhilarating moments!

You never really know what a day holds in store for you! What started off as me volunteering on the ground ended up with me jumping from a plane!!  

I had been so inspired (and continue to be) by my friend, Derek Walton. He has A.L.S. and has done so much to raise awareness and funds for that cause. For several years, he had participated in a SkyDive, just north of Toronto, Ontario. His infectious enthusiasm led me to volunteer on the ground to do whatever I could to support him. 

While watching the participants land, I found myself thinking, 'I could do that!' - in spite of my natural fear of heights. I shared my thoughts with fellow volunteers and was overheard by Sally, one of the jumpers. She immediately told me that I could take the place of her grandson, who had to cancel his participation at the last minute. This generous woman not only paid for my jump, but also for the video that is shown above. 

There are two parts of the experience that I will never forget:  the freefall - where I felt I was soaring like an eagle; and the absolute silence during the rest of the drop, after the parachute had opened. 

It was truly, an exhilarating moment for me!

Retirement - Looking in Several Directions

As I step into the next phase of my journey in life, I find myself looking in several directions.

I look back over the years – where I feel privileged to have served as an educator for so many amazing young people – children who brought excitement to what has always been much more than a job, who created challenges which led to personal growth, and who provided me with so much joy and laughter through the years.

I look sideways with respect for my colleagues – those present, and those in the past, who have continually inspired me to be innovative, and who have been generous with their time and with their patience.

I look forward with a sense of completion and accomplishment, and I feel excited about the future as I embrace the time-freedom that retirement brings.

I would like to thank all the parents of students I have taught for loaning their children to me for a time, and for their wonderful support over the years.

I feel tremendous appreciation for the teachers and principals with whom I have worked and thank them for all they have done for me – both personally and professionally.

Revisiting with old friends...

One of the truly amazing gifts of life comes in the form of long-term friendships - the ones where you may not see them frequently, but when you do, it's as if no time has passed since the previous visit. 

You just pick up where you left off - no recriminations, regrets, or apologies expected or needed as to why it's been so long. There's a wonderful comfort level which enables the relationship to deepen and mutual appreciation to flow. 

It is one of those experiences of genuine, unconditional love.

My heart goes out to my American friends....

Another reminder of why I am glad to be living in Canada. Watched the movie SICKO last night after a friend recommended it. 
I had shared with her how a friend of ours in Arizona had gone to an emergency unit, but had not gone to an 'approved' hospital. Her insurance company slammed her with a bill for $13,000 for a 5 hour visit. (They did pay the first $100!!!) When she called the insurance company to ask how on earth they could charge $13,000 for just 5 hours - they told her that the procedures she had undergone were very expensive. 
However, all is not lost - they told her that they would help her out. If she paid it in full, they would reimburse 20% of her costs. So now she ONLY has to pay just over $10,000. 
My heart goes out to all of my American friends.

Marlena - one of my team....

It's a wonderful thing to know that I have contributed to someone else's success... whether directly, or indirectly. Marlena's pictures remind me of why I do what I do. Our products continue to give visible, emotional, and lasting results. Just over two years ago, I shared with my friend Stephanie, who had great results. When her friends and family members started to notice her transformation, they began to ask her what she was doing to regain her health so quickly and safely. She was her own billboard! Stef shared with several people, and they also had great results, too.

Just 3 months ago, Marlena connected with Stef, and within just 9 weeks, she released 40lbs without losing lean muscle. She also felt tremendous energy. Her journey continues, as you can see by her latest photo taken just this week. 

These results are not unusual. In my team are hundreds of people who are telling similar stories - and several athletes who report improved performance, quicker recovery, more stamina, and better health. 

I feel a tremendous sense of gratitude to belong to a company whose vision is to impact world health by freeing people from physical and financial pain, one person at a time. Real People!  Real Results!!   So exciting!

Countdown..... just 44 days to go!

Elliot Lake in the Fall

AHHHH - Retirement.......   Just 44 days to go and I will be entering the next stage of life's journey. 

I have been blessed with a career that I have loved. Being an elementary teacher has its challenges, but it has many, many more glorious moments which are ingrained in my memory. The students I have had the honour and privilege of teaching have kept me young, and have taught me so much about myself. The dedication and commitment I have witnessed in my colleagues (on both sides of the Atlantic) have continually inspired me to improve my own skills and abilities, and I believe that I am a better person because of those interactions. Yes - these are the things I shall miss, come June 28th. 

That being said, I am really looking forward to starting a new life in Elliot Lake - 5.5 hours north of Barrie. The change of pace, and the freedom to explore the area, as well as building new relationships is like embarking upon a new adventure. Lots of hiking, canoeing, traveling, and yes.... snowshoeing in the longer winters....   all of these activities are beckoning. 

This is the lifestyle I have dreamed about for so long.... the time freedom to do what I want, when I want, with whom I want, and for as long or as little as I want.

90 and counting....

The company I am partnered with has just announced 2 more people who have reached millionaire status. This now make 90.... and there's more to come!! 

These are all people who are personally known to me. Through their dedication to help others achieve their goals, they have reached this milestone in their financial journey. 

I am so grateful and appreciative to have found a vehicle that really helps people with their health and wealth and delivers what it promises in both areas. Through this, I have been able to touch the lives of hundreds of people - some of whom I have never met. This makes me feel very humble. 

Just over two years ago, one of my mentors was announced as being the company's 40th millionaire. When Carolyne said that her goal was to double her income, my first reaction was not positive. It sounded like a little bit of greed had crept in.... until I found out that she and her husband spend several weeks each year in places like Haiti working and financing the rebuilding of schools and villages that have been devastated by natural disasters. Carolyne wanted to be able to give more and improve the lives of the people who really need it. I was well humbled and have watched the work she does with nothing but admiration. 

This is typical of people with whom I have partnered. We are encouraged to ensure that our actions come from a heart of service. 

I am a very proud man tonight!

What a wonderful way to wake up!!

Loretta Laroche, a comedienne and stress counsellor, says that when she opens her eyes in the morning, she sits up and yells, 'I'M BACK'! 
It always makes me laugh when I think of it. What a wonderful way to wake up each morning... true appreciation of the day ahead, choosing a positive frame of mind from which to start creating our day. 

It's all about choices, isn't it?   From wherever we are, whatever we are feeling, we have a choice to think a thought that feels a little better, or to think a thought that makes us feel a little worse. 

Today, I'm going to deliberately look for things to appreciate and allow myself to be sucked into the vortex of joy. My day will be a wonderful unfolding of more of my desires.

Paying it forward.....It is so gratifying......

It is so gratifying to be in a position to really help others to get paid. Last night, we helped another person in our team and as a result, they pocketed $150. Just for sharing something with their friends that would enable them to take their health to the next level. 

I never knew anything like this existed!  It's so easy, though it does take a bit of work. That being said, the returns are out of this world.

It's a sweet life I'm living!

Each day, in my e-mail, I get a quote from Abraham Hicks. It continually amazes me how timely these messages are. Often, they answer a question, or address something that is current in my life experience. Yesterday, this is what I read: 

"What anyone else has or does not have has nothing to do with you. The only thing that affects your experience is the way you utilize the Non-Physical Energy with your thought. Your abundance or lack of it in your experience has nothing to do with what anybody else is doing or having. It has only to do with your perspective. It has only to do with your offering of thought. If you want your fortunes to shift, you have to begin telling a different story."

I remembered all those times in the past where I would feel a little envious of those who were successful in achieving goals that seemed to elude me. When I think back, I realize that it was those very thoughts that were preventing me from living more joyfully. 

Now, when I see someone else being successful, I celebrate and appreciate their achievements, not just with a smile on the outside, and words that pass my lips, but from within my heart..... and.... when I am able to do that, my life seems to turn around for the better. 

Has anyone else experienced something like that?

Helping others.....

The thing I like most about what I do is that I get to help others achieve their goals. I'm not in the business of setting goals for others, but helping them to figure out what their goals are for themselves. Then I match them up with the tools that help them achieve their goals. I offer to coach and support them on their way, together with a super team of people who come from a heart of service. 

That's what we did last night. 4 of my team went up to Midland to support a friend, Marlena, in her wish to help others. As a result, 1 more person made a decision to improve their health and wealth, and 5 more are on their way to making the same decision. 

It really is all about helping others.... it's what I do best - and I have a lot of fun along the way!!

My Transformation

My Transformation - in just 90 days!

In August of 2009, I was sitting on the second step of the stairs and found myself out of breath while doing up my shoelaces. By the end of October, I was able to run up the stairs without even realizing that I had done so. In just over two months ~ I felt more energy, pep, and alertness than I had felt for a very long time.
People with whom I work have commented . . . not only on my obvious weight loss ~ but on the new glow in my eyes and the clearness of my skin. I went on to release 44 lbs and am now 8 lbs below my goal weight and am on one of the ISAGENIX maintenance programs since November of 2009 and have maintained my new body.
I did not realize the effects of the impurities in my body and overall health. I am so glad that I have discovered this amazing, affordable, cleansing system.
As people began to notice, they asked me what I was doing. I shared my story and told them about the products. Most of the people I spoke with wanted to do the same, and so I signed them on.
So, now I am also receiving a regular residual income which is increasing gradually. It is only a matter of time before I reach financial freedom. This will mean that, although I love my current job as a teacher, I will be able to take early retirement at the end of June, 2013, so that I can spend more time with my family and friends, and choose to do what I want, when I want. Now, that's true freedom!
It is my desire to share the benefits of health and wealth with as many people as I can.

If you'd like to experience improved health and wellness and/or a second stream of income, please contact me at:   or call me: 705-241-2570.
