As the fog lifts, hills speckled with the first yellows of fall appear, sloping gently to the creeks and rivers sneaking through the inflowing valleys.

Under The Lights

‘Check out how amazing that looks,’ I blurt out to TOQUE Partner Cai Sepulis when we turn off King onto Queen Street in downtown Kitchener. ‘It’s like the lane is alive.’ Straight ahead of us, about halfway up the block between King and Duke Streets, warm light and the sounds of live music spill out into the darkness of Queen from the alleyway between the Vidyard building and its next door neighbour. Goudie’s Lane. Our final destination on what has been a most amazing evening – downtown Kitchener’s annual #DTKPatioCrawl.

What fills your heart with the most joy? What do you feel, with every inch of your soul, that you were put on this earth to do? What is the life that you want to create for yourself? Take a moment to think about it. Now, answer this for me: Are you pursuing that passion or taking the necessary steps to create the life you fully deserve to live? I’d love to assume that all of you reading this answered that with a stern “YES”, but If you’re anything like I was, and at times still am, you may not have. And why is that?

Accepting the Skin I'm In

Self-love is something I have struggled with my entire life, not too long ago, my hatred towards myself started to escalate. It got so bad that I started canceling almost every plan I made, and even ignoring people I used to talk to. I felt like everyone else hated me as much as I hated myself. I knew that it was all in my head, but I’m a perfectionist and can’t help but judge and criticize every single part of myself, especially my appearance. It took a long time, but now I finally feel okay in my skin.
