It's a brand new day

It's cold, raining and gray outside but it takes a lot more than that to dampen my mood.

A cup of hot green tea latte in one hand and a box of chocolates in the other, what more can I ask for!

Oh wait..there is more...

Desserts after dinner!

However, I think my level of contentment has got a lot more to do than just meeting my cravings for sugar. Wouldn't it be easy life was that simple =) Through trials and tribulations, I discover part of that contentment is the ability to live in the present. Sounds simple enough, makes sense right? But how often do we worry about things, people and circumstances that are yet to unfold. And really, how much of that is within our control? Not a lot.

But anyway, that might sound pretty obvious to some people and I'm sure we've heard it many times before but only recently have I started really living that out. And it works =D

It also helps I live in one of the most picturesque cities in the world, I can't help but just admire the awesome scenery and realise how lucky I am...

Beautiful sunset

So many colours in the sky

Snow capped mountains
Snow melting from the mountains
Whistler village lights
It's Christmas all year round

So much awesomeness in one place =)

Comfort Zone

I used to have a comfort zone
where I knew I couldn't fail,
The same four walls of busy work
were really more like a jail

I longed so much to do the things
I'd never done before,
But I stayed inside my comfort zone
and paced the same old floor

I said it didn't matter
that I wasn't doing much,
I said I didn't care for things
like diamonds or furs and such

I claimed to be so busy
with the things inside my zone,
But deep inside I longed for
something special of my own

I couldn't let my life go by
just watching others win,
I held my breath and stepped outside
to let the change begin

I took a step and with new strength
I'd never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone good bye
and closed and locked the door

If you are in a comfort zone
afraid to venture out,
Remember that all winners
were at one time filled with doubt

A step of faith and knowing God
can make your dreams come true
Greet your future with a smile,
success is there for you!
