a little list
WHEN IN DOUBT:
- dress up
- play music
I’m not a Perfectionist. Perfect implies an endpoint.
I don’t believe in perfect. I believe in the possibility of improvement.
It can always be better, I will never be satisfied,
I’m an exhausting kind of optimist.
I tutored a fifth grader in writing.
He kept bringing back his paragraph, I kept suggesting edits.
‘When is it ever going to be enough for you?’ He huffed.
Good point. Never. I thought we were having fun, making it better
and better. Fine, you can stop.
P.S. On Thursday I’m sharing the secret story behind this piece with all Heroine Training patrons.

We live across the street from a park where lots of puppies play. That’s partly why we moved here, even though we didn’t have our doggie yet; we moved to a good neighbourhood for families. Dog families.
Now that Snug is here I call us a ‘Family Pack’ 🐺 – with a giggle, because it doubles as a wholesome American phrase for MORE SNACKS.
We used to count the puppies in the park, together or apart. ‘You’ve got to see this! FIVE puppies!’ Now we know their names.
P.S. Are there puppies in your park? If so how many?

I am pleased to inform you that the gates to Everyday Wonderland are now open ✨
You’re invited to join my weekly accountability club for finding magic where you already are, away from screens.
Everyday Wonderland is a celebration of the adventures awaiting us in our daily lives. The difference between living like a wizard vs a muggle is how we choose to interpret our surroundings.
Harry and his friends live a semblance of a normal life I could relate to, but dressed up in a castle with magic spells. They still had essays to write, but on parchment with quill pens.
We live under the illusion that adventure will show up and whisk us away one day. Why wait for that day, when you can invite adventure into your daily life now?
Everyday Wonderland is the fundamental stage of heroine training: training your mind to believe that you do have time, you can have adventures, and your are the protagonist of your story. You can start this very minute.
P.S. This month’s theme is fun. The gates are open for four days only.
