Your Inner Child

Trust in your inner child for it is your soul. Until you follow where it wants you to be, your inner child will continue to nag at you to see your way forward. It may bring hurt and sadness from time to time, but it’s the journey you will eventually follow. In the end it is only guiding you towards growth and happiness. Be kind to yourself along the way and seek the courage within you to follow that beautiful inner child.

Not Easy Being Me!

Not Easy Being Me

So Mum and Dad what can I said

I grow and change now everyday

Trying to find out who I am and where I fit in

Looking for answers but where do I begin

You see these changes in me and yet you still don’t understand

Its support I need right now not that back of your hand

I’m not you, only from you and this you must see

Stop trying to make me like you wanted to be,

Let me be just me

I feel your love but it must come free of your conditions

Did you not learn from your parents when you were in the same position

So Mum and dad what can I say

I am growing further away from you every day


Is this natural when you were young were you not the same

Let me be to understand this world of youth

You know it will not be long before I have to find out the truth

So Mum and Dad what can I say

Just love me and let me for now be this way

From the poetry book – Changing The Way I am



What does this mean to you ? – W T F

WTF – I am sure you thought differently.  What that means is “Well Thats Fun”

Over the pass few months I have had issues with my WordPress website.  I have stopped posting and decided that I need to get back on track.

Trying to get it back together.

I want to wish you all a very happy new year and only good things in your life for 2019.


Riders Retreat

British Columbia (BC) is famous for some of the most exciting, spectacular and scenic motorbike roads.  BC proudly promotes of over 85 motorcycle routes.  I have had the pleasure of  travelling on several of these routes.  Recently, I rode to Nakusp, Kaslo and back through Revelstoke. Staying two nights at the Riders Retreat in Nakusp. What a great place to stay.

Meeting other bikers and sharing stories of the places that they have travelled.  Sitting around the camp fire at night with great music and songs, reminded me of the craic in the pubs in Ireland. 

The Riders Retreat is a very welcoming place, excellent facilities, extremely friendly and a very professional family managed Campground.  It is a must stop over campground for any bikers.  Plus, the beautiful town of Nakusp sits on the shores of the Upper Arrow Lake. It is certainly on my list as a great base, for the next few motorbike trips.

Story Telling Tuesday

I was invited to speak at Story Telling Tuesday.  Apart from a few pieces of my Irish humour, I read from my book ‘The Savvy Child Within You’.  A good friend Trent, presented me with this photo a few days afterwards.

The secrets of the spiritual heart

Very few people understand the heart. In truth, your heart is one of the masterpieces of creation. It is a phenomenal instrument. It has the potential to create vibrations and harmonies that are far beyond the beauty of pianos, strings or flutes. You can hear an instrument, but you feel your heart. And if you think that you feel an instrument, it’s only because it touched your heart. Your heart is an instrument made of extremely subtle energy that few people come to appreciate.

In most human beings, the heart does its work unattended. Even though its behaviour governs the course of our lives, it is not understood. If at any given point in time the heart happens to open, we fall in love. If at any given point in time it happens to close, the love stops. If the heart happens to hurt, we get angry, and if we stop feeling it altogether, we get empty. All of these different things happen because the heart goes through changes. These energy shifts and variations that take place in the heart run your life. You are so identified with them that you use the words “I” and “me” when you refer to what’s going on in your heart. But in truth, you are not your heart. You are the experiencer of you heart.
