Climbing Up to the Next New Normal

24 July 2015

I've been feeling somewhat anxious lately; a complete lack of clarity and an unbelievable lack of organization and execution. This is not me in my stride. I’m breaking all of my rules, working late; eating crap for supper when I get home, and sacrificing sleep so I can get more items knocked off my to do list.

Stop the Maddness Automate your To Do List!

23 July 2015

Have you heard the saying “busy people get more done”? It’s a tad misleading. I mean, of course a person with more on their plate is going to get more done than one with a slower schedule. I think what the saying is referring to though is the fact that a busy person can manage a higher number of responsibilities and commitments far better than someone that’s not used to doing so.

Be True to You to Improve Your Formula

19 July 2015

Fundamental? Definitely. Simple? Not at all. At least, not for me. I’m in the very early stages of my fifth decade – shudder – and am just starting to honour my true self as I make decisions about both personal and professional matters. Perhaps this is wisdom that can only come with age. I do feel I’m late to the game, but so glad I’ve arrived at all.

Three Powerful Personal Discoveries I've Learned From My Kids

16 July 2015

It’s absolutely true that I probably learn more about myself from my kids than from any other source. My son recently turned 10, and honestly having a kid in the double digits was a bit tough for me. Being a mom for 10 entire years came rather quickly I thought, but looking back, wow, how I've changed and grown in those 10 years!

How to Own Your Time By Authentically Saying No

9 July 2015

When my long-time, dear friend Kelly asked me if I wanted to provide a blog piece about something in my life that I have learned that could potentially resonate with other women living a similarly busy life, I have to say I was truly honoured. Having been affected many times in a positive way by what might seem like the tiniest expression, saying or quote, I have quickly realized the importance of putting things on paper; simple words have often been gifts to me sent just at the right time, when I needed them most.

Why "Me-Time" Combats Overwhelm & How to Fit It In!

9 July 2015

Sometimes people ask me how I find the time to fit everything in. First I have to clarify, I don’t find the time, I make it. I have a clear focus on my priorities which helps, but I also follow the guidelines discussed below to ensure I have enough time spent each week on what’s important to me (the ever-important “me time” that can sometimes elude those of us living busy lives filled with career, kids, and an endless list of responsibilities if no conscious effort is placed on it).

5 July 2015

Hey everyone – I am Lori… and I am a procrastinator. Kelly tells me I need to get this done for today though – so now that the pressure is on, maybe this will come to me more easily!

Diet Anyone?

1 July 2015

Does anybody else hate the word diet? I do. I absolutely hate it! Why do we try to diet in the first place? Spend a few weeks or months drastically changing our eating habits so that we can shed a few pounds only to end up going back to the exact same way of eating eventually? Aren’t we really trying to achieve life-long sustainable eating habits that will help to keep us feeling and looking healthy??

Mortimer Writes

27 June 2015

I have many labels. I am a mother and a wife. I’m a business advisor by day and romance writer by night and on weekends. Filling in the cracks would be my occasional travel agent transaction, but admittedly, those are mainly trips booked for myself. I am a daughter to aging parents and worried about how I can squeeze more time with them into my life. I am a volunteer and a taxi service. I am learning to be a hockey mom and I guess I’m a musician too.
