I asked the question on facebook today, “What is your ‘why’, dig deep… Just saying your “why” is your kids isn’t deep enough.” It was clear by the messages I got, that they didn’t really understand what I was asking. Their answers were more about what makes them happy, but not what propels them forward in life and helps them to make the choices they do. Continue reading “What is your ‘why’?” »
Whenever I come to Africa I am always amazed at the differences in the culture and way of living. Its almost like i just expect everyone to change for me so I don’t have to experience the shock, but that’s not the way it works. When I come here, I realize that life isn’t about me, its about them. I don’t get to say hey, do it my way because that’s the way we do it in Canada and it’s a better way.

I was stumped…
Kel (more commonly known as Kellie Frazier) said, “Kel (meaning me, Kelly Falardeau), did you write your blog post for the week?” (As business partners we try to take turns writing posts for the Day of Love website)
I said “Nope, will do it tonight.”
But tonight I was a little stumped and not sure what to write about.
So, I asked my Facebook tribe. “Time to write a blog post, what should I write about?”
I got some cool responses, but then one of my friends said, “Hey Kelly – what do you think about writing about wearing a bathing suit in this hot summer weather. I know you’re a burn survivor and I’m not sure if you have scars just on your face or on the rest of your body, so do you wear a bathing suit in public?”
I said “Aha! That’s it!… Continue reading →
