I'm really into the simple things in life. But in reflection, they're not just the simple things, but rather the funny moments of our lives, meaningful events, important ideas, the moments that allow us to show our true selves. They allow us to voice and reveal our opinions. They divide and/or connect us all. So, actually, they're kinda the big things in life. And that makes me want to talk about them. Not just the simple things in my life, but the simple things in yours. So here's my look at the simple things in life, in a flavourful kind of way.

Random Rants: Doesn't Matter If You're Black Or White, Except If We're Talking About These

9/14/2019
More
This is one of my "Random Rants" which is basically a short episode of me, going on about various random topics regarding anything and everything! Today, I dive into the topic of black versus white. No, I'm not talking race here, people. I am talking about the other things in life that we chose to buy or consume. Examples: black vs. white cars, appliances, electronics, shoes, chocolate vs. vanilla, etc. There is a subconscious debate going on amongst all of these things, and in which colour...

Why Desperation Is A Great Motivation And How Creativity Can Be Learned

9/7/2019
More
For the last few days, I've been increasingly reflective of how powerful "desperate situations" are in our lives. Sure they bring us stress, negative feelings, a sense of unsettlement, but at the same time they give us something very important, something many people struggle to maintain: motivation. If you think back to your most creative moments, likely it was during a time of desperation. Remember tying to fix that door or fence? You couldn't run out to the store cause it was closed. What...

My Perspective On Plastics

8/31/2019
More
Me here. Just felt like throwing out my non-expert opinion on this hot topic of 'plastics'. I'm interested to see if this stirs the pot at all. I share of couple of my life experiences (ie. living in Cuba) and also discuss how my current work environment (Starbuck) reveals some very interesting examples of hypocrisy regarding our actions towards garbage, trash, mainly in the form of plastics. Let me know what you think. You can check out this in video form here:...

Have you, or did you, ever have a chance to sit down and have a real heart to heart with anyone of your grandparents? I believe good people respect their elders.

My Take On "Not Caring What People Think"

7/31/2019
More
Not caring what people think. It's supposed to just happen like that, and come so naturally. Right? Not for me, and I am pretty sure not for all of you. Running my own business has really pushed me to go outside my comfort zone, which I think can be hard, no matter what you are tackling in life. Here's my 2 cents on how I have warmed up, little by little, to caring less about what others think and more about what I am working towards. I hope this is valuable for you. Cheers!

More
Have you ever felt sorry for yourself for the stuff you have to put up with? Ever feel like your vacation isn't really going as you had imagined it? That's kind what I was feeling during my father-daughter trip to Jamaica. Here's a wild and crazy idea: go into the Jamaican bush, wake up before dawn and hike into the abyss with nothing more than the shoes on your feet, and clothes on your back. Okay, so it wasn't exactly like that but in my head it was. Have a listen to this true story about...

Ian Bernard: Just An Average Guy I Met On The Streets

More
Okay, I'm curious. Have you walked by someone on the streets waiting for spare change and either: a) avoided eye contact all together? b) treated them kinda like they didn't exists cause then you didn't feel bad for not giving them money? c) lied to them and told them you had no change? d) in your head, blamed them for their own circumstances and refused to feel bad for them? e) dropped some change in pity, or cause, why not? f) started a conversation with them, with the hopes of...

One Woman's Perspective On Expectations Vs. Goals

7/20/2019
More
Do you ever use the words "goal" and "expectation" with the same intention? In other words, as something you are working towards. Here, I dive into the difference between the two words, or at least my opinion of it. I touch on how these play into our lives. I chat about various life decisions including meeting someone and starting a relationship, having a family, choosing or changing a career path, moving cities, etc. Basically all of the big events in one's adult life. I am interested in...

Intro: A Flavoured Look On The Simple Things In Life.

Remember when you where in school, university or basically any training you have ever done, and for the beginning weeks or months, you had to go through those painful "theory" lessons because it was so important (according to your teacher) for your understanding of the rest of the content? Well, that's exactly why I welcome you here today! This is the theory behind my podcast. And by that, I mean it is me blabbering for about 8 minutes about why I think it is going to be interesting and...
