When we think of our relationships we typically are having thoughts and feelings about relationships with others.

I wonder how much better our relationships with others could be if we first focused on the the one relationship that matters most…..and the one most often neglected. And that is the relationship we have with ourselves.

Knowing who we are and recognizing our weaknesses and working on our own self improvement would definitely enable us to have more and stronger relationships with others.

Gotta go….I have a lot of work to do!

Atlantic Canada

Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia. Yes the iconic red and white lighthouse is here. I thought I would share a shot that is equally representative of this popular tourist destination, just to be different!

Getting away

Tomorrow, I’m doing just that! I will be getting on a plane early in the day and traveling to a part of my country I have never seen. For an entire week I will be with friends I haven’t seen in a very long time too. Yes, I am very excited about my vacation!

For me though, there is a part of travel that is just as exciting as reaching your destination. And that is the anticipation of going away. Knowing that the time away is coming, that mental countdown you go through is one of the greatest small joys in life that you can have. It’s also the part of the trip that doesn’t cost anything!

Can’t wait to get there, can’t wait to go. It’s all good! Now…..I wonder…..which camera am I going to take?

Guard rails, speed bumps and yellow lines

These are are physical barriers designed for safety and controlling traffic flow. Typically, they are installed after a road is built. 

I wonder why some people choose to install similar types of barriers before relationships get built? When they do, it pretty much ensures they aren’t going to get very far very fast. It’s likely they may not ever reach their destination?
