Il y a deux semaines que j’ai adopté un nouveau poste dans mon entreprise. N’étant plus chef d’équipe, je travaille maintenant dans un nouveau rôle qui est encore en développement. Bien que le rôle ne soit pas encore entièrement défini, il me permet de travailler sur diverses initiatives et projets. C’est cet aspect qui m’attirait vers l’emploi – tout un nouveau défi pour entreprendre. Mais reste que je suis en questionnement autour de mon poste. Ou plutôt je suis en questionnement autour de mes capacités d’entreprendre ce travail.Continue reading “Syndrome de l’imposteur”
Au cours de la dernière semaine, j’ai eu l’honneur et le privilège d’assister à une semaine de ressourcement menée par Karine Drouin. Un beau petit groupe de 12 individus se sont dirigés vers la République Dominicaine, pour y passer une semaine ensemble au Sanctuary Cap Cana dans la ville de Punta Cana.Continue reading “Sanctuary retrouvée”

As the new year dawns, it is a time for reflection. This year, the path laid out before me is tied to the title of this post – Anicca.Continue reading “Anicca”
With just a few days to go before Christmas, it’s time to take a look at some of my favourite Christmas specials. Here we go!Continue reading “A Small Screen Christmas”
“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.”
– Buddy the Elf
Those holiday ear-worms start assaulting us as early as November 1st. You’ll be out looking for half-price Halloween candy, when you suddenly notice yourself humming along to a familiar tune, but you’re not sure what it is immediately. Then…it hits you – they’re playing Christmas music! Continue reading “Christmas Cheer”
“If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet I wouldn’t be more surprised than I am now.”
— Clark W. Griswold (Chevy Chase) in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
It’s that time of year again! Time to hop on that holiday road and get into the spirit of Christmas. Now last year, I documented the ups-and-downs of my holiday cheer in this blog. (You can read all about that starting here.) It definitely helped put my moods into perspective, and, I feel, helped keep my spirit up.
This year, I’ll not be doing the same. I’ve already made an effort to get into the spirit more readily by watching some holiday-themed movies and TV shows, as well as listening to that ever-present Christmas music. For this month’s posts, I wanted to talk about some of my favourite Christmas movies, TV shows and songs.
For today’s post, let’s discuss Christmas movies. Here are my top 5 Christmas movies: Continue reading “Visions of Sugarplums”

Over the past 12-18 months (maybe more, it’s really hard for me to know), I’ve been in a slump. I’m not motivated. I’m not overly engaged. I have no drive or ambition. I’ve come to recognize that I’d essentially hit a burnout. Continue reading “The Gift of a Burnout”
Earlier this week, we crossed the two month mark from my return to the real world after spending 10 glorious days in Disney World for my 40th birthday. (You can read about the trip in this previous post.) As with each visit to the Happiest Place on Earth, the return to normality brings with it a bit of a feeling of blahness after a while. I’m usually able to ride the high of the Disney magic for a good 6-8 weeks, but then the inevitable crash occurs.
Here are my top 4 tips on how to avoid the post-Disney blues, and to keep that magic alive and kicking long after you’ve returned home.
