Hope is...when the flowers in your garden seem to be smiling back at you🌻🌼🏵🌹🌻... My black-eyed susans are probably my very favorite! The bright yellow is so cheery & makes me grin from from ear to ear😃😃😃....have you ever tried that? Just smiling so big & holding it for 10 or 15 seconds...I seriously started laughing but I could feel my energy shift & I felt lighter!!👍 #hopedoesabodygood#smilelikeyoumeanit#maketodayamazing
Why yes I AM smiling after my long run! It wasn't fast but speed wasn't the point. Got in a solid run. Negative splits. Great support. (Scott was my traveling aide station on his bike.) Run with gratitude!! #running#gratitude#satstatchat#strongwomen @howwasyourruntoday
Flirt with the risks your heart craves, you'll win. 💚🍀 The winds were so strong people were falling over and they closed the cliffs. I wasn't going to settle for Mother Nature's weather, I wanted to see the cliffs. So I hopped a farmer's fence down the road and hiked to the top. Then I flirted with more danger standing and sitting on the edge going against the wind. It was a perfect day. #wanderlust#gratitude#exploretheworld#lifeontheedge
It's such a feeling to see how your work unfolds alongside current events. Can't put it into words right now, but I encourage you to join me at @currentsessions' VOLUME VII: On Resistance at @wildprojectnyc. Last night was already so telling, two more— REFUSE and RESTRICT —hold their own. I'm here to guide the conversation, to find a through-line, to have these works speak to one another and together as one... I owe it to the artists for putting their stories out there, for their trust and willingness. 💗 #tcs17#currentsessions#gratitude
While I was visiting with my biological father, we spoke of my efforts to find him. As I explained all of the tactics and strategies over the last 21+ years, he was incredibly impressed and grateful that I never gave up.
We sat in his garden and watched the Chatelaine videos together. We were speechless as we watched this together. Our chests were tight and tears were flowing as he held me in his arms. I could feel the reality of him not knowing anything, absolutely oblivious as I searched and marketed the campaign.
I've been slight on speaking about him for many reasons. Firstly, it was to let us breathe this in and have respect to the newness of this. With so many emotions flowing, it masks good decision making, and I certainly wanted no regrets. Secondly, it is his decision to make alone.
Now, we are embarking on a documentary project together. It will highlight my life, my search to date, the answers I have found along the way and my happy ending with him. It will be a honest and beautiful account of our reunion, who he is (including his real identity) and what he feels about this. I can't wait to share this special man with you! As we've said to each other, "this will be a father and daughter telling their story." FOR THE COMPLETE STORY: www.withgreatabandon.com/story Thoughts, opinions, posts, search and campaign by Janet Keall. After 20+ years of searching, Janet found 4 half-siblings who were also abandoned as babies by the same mother. Janet found their biological mother and her biological father. She's now searching for one more abandoned baby sibling. #adopted#adoptee#abandoned#foundling#princerupert#thankful#gratitude#hope#belong#love#family#documentary

Tumeric Latte on this misty Saturday morning. .
The first time I had such a latte was at a @gloryjuiceco in Vancouver a few days before moving to Tofino. The second time was yesterday after I got inspired by @breakfastcriminals who shared her Tumeric milk recipe. And the third is right now. I just taught a yoga class to some of my favourite people, have @given_the_movie playing in the background, & my vision board on the kitchen table.
I have so much I want to share with you from what was stirred up this past week. My annual colonoscopy brought up some old fears & gave me the wake up call I needed to shift. And as I process it all here's this morning's punchline; .
You can decide to reset the course of your health, career, relationships, heart, & life in one moment. But it's going to take time for everything to fall into place. Let it. Acknowledge your fears as they are there to teach you. YOU can make & be the change you wish to see. Don't ever give up no matter how many setbacks come your way. Change the plan or get back to it. You may stumble, that's life. Slow down. Be gentle with the fragile parts of you that are still learning to grow. .
And perhaps you're confused as to why a Tumeric Latte post is related to all of this. But it is. I'm resetting this weekend & this cup is full with what I need to reset with. Hope your is full with what you need too.
Koko cupcakes! On Thursday we celebrated my birthday and I am so grateful for all the love and goodness from my family and friends. @kevinst.john had the hardest work week of the year (state survey), in the midst of school starting and moving, and yet he slowed time down and made the day special. That was the most precious gift. We had a wonderful dinner, cards from the kids, cupcakes and wine--and I came home to a beautiful Irish bodhran (drum)! So thankful for all of the kindness and gifts that were sent my way--I love you! #gratitude#thankful#love#birthday#birthdayblessings#leoseason#cupcakes#hubby#family
Happy Saturday 🌱 "August of another summer, and once again / I am drinking the sun / and the lilies again are spread across the water." - Mary Oliver (📷 @the.interior - if you're in the Hamptons do yourself a favor and stop by this beautiful spot!)
It always sucks to have to miss parts of the trail due to fire closures. But this hitch made it alright - 4 rides, 4 beers, cookies, oranges, bars, and an amazing amount of generosity, goodwill, and care. The trail has allowed me to become better at reaching out for help, and it's amazing how strangers will show up for you if you ask. Brimming with gratitude for the countless people that have helped me along the trail. No one hikes the PCT alone - the support network, organized or spontaneous, of those who live around the PCT is one of the most people parts of the trail. #pct2017#pacificcresttrail#pct#hitch#beer#trailangels#jeffersonfire#gratitude
