Summer is here!! :)

The days of summer are here. Today the temperature reached 35°C and we were all enjoying our air conditioning running. Humidity is just starting so its not a bad heat, but after months of low to mid teen’s weather this is a wonderful change. Soon we will dislike the hot weather, we will want it to cool off, however for now, this is a welcomed change.

Personally I like summer, but here in Canada summers are short. After all, its only 2-3 months of summer hot weather. I enjoy riding bikes, going for long walks, driving up to the great lakes for the day. Nature has a lot to offer. Unfortunately our lives are so busy that we don’t take the time to enjoy it. Sometimes I wish I had a lot of money so that I can enjoy more of nature, and have more time to spend with my family.

Happy New Year 2017

It has been a few months since I’ve posted to my blog, I have been busy with my family. 

In this blog I wanted to speak to new years, new beginnings. For many people New Year means new beginnings, new opportunities, new year’s resolutions. It seems as though that for most, new years resolutions end after the first few days. There are a select few that will keep the new year resolution until end of January (good for you for sticking it out).There is also an extreme minority that keeps their new year’s resolutions longer; I applaud your dedication.

I have been wondering lately if we don’t keep those resolutions because they are too big or too time consuming, or because it is easier to make resolutions and update them on quarterly, monthly or even weekly basis?

I think with our daily lives, we need to take some time and review our goals and resolutions on more regular basis. 

Best wishes for 2017 to you all.

Happy 1st birthday Markus

Fall is here

No matter where you look, you can see that fall is here in Canada. The trees are looking so beautiful, all the colors are changing and the leafs are starting to fall down. It’s also much cooler outside, especially at night. Sleeping with an open window you must put a blanket to cover yourself, or in the morning you will be really cold.

Fall season is associated with cold and flu. The temperature change allows for the bacteria to coma back to life, and attack us human beings. Yes, I’ve been unfortunate as well. First my 11 month old son picked up a fever and stuffy nose. He shared his germs with my wife. She on the other hand shared them with me. Oh the act of love. You share everything, hugs and kisses and those nasty germs.

Like most Canadians to me this means a winter is near. Snow is coming, it’s inevitable. I really hope that this year the winter is mild.

There comes a time

Lately I’ve been noticing the morale of people around me degrading at work, and it’s beginning to bother me. I see that there have been changes, that are giving people negative impression and making things worse.

Humans are very communal and frequently they create negativity to rebel, and it rubs off on others, in other words, “Monkey see, Monkey do”

I wish there was a magic wand that could make everyone happy, but that’s not possible. Even children have their times of happiness and unhappiness. This social behavior is normal, but how do you cope?

There are a few techniques you can use; for example distance yourself from a person that is negative. This technique works well if you are able to apply, but usually it’s easier applied to single individual.

Next, you can try to take some time for yourself. If you find that you’re easier bothered, maybe you’re burning out. Maybe you need to take some time and do nothing. Go for a trip, a walk, a drive.

If your techniques are not working, maybe it’s time to move on, find new friends, job, or a city to live in.

I know it’s not always possible to do any of the above, but hang in there, stay positive.

What is up with this weather?

Two weeks ago we had a snow falling on a Sunday.

After that the temperature shot up quite drastically. Today the weather was unbelievable. We’ve hit 35c.

This was around 3pm today.

For the last hour or so, I’ve been laying in my bed and watching the lightning strikes. I cannot believe how drastically the weather has been changing over the years. There must be a reason for that. Is it global warming? Is it all the fossil fuels we’ve been burning? Or maybe it’s the increasing population of our planet.
It makes me wonder what’s next?
What are your thoughts?
