Move Forward and Get Over It

By Wendy

Here's why you need to get over it and let it go...

This Too Shall Pass
This is the line my mother has said through many times of crisis (big or small). She also says, "nothing ever stays the same". You've probably heard the same message but said in different ways.

A pretty simple concept but quite calming, especially when you are going through a tough time. It's a friendly reminder that there will be an end to your problem. It can't last forever and you will survive whatever it is that you're going through.

Keep Calm and Move on
You've heard this one before. Let's say the scale of rationality goes from 1-10. I've been taught that you're at your most rational point when you are at one and at your least rational at 10. 

Do you think it’s possible to make good decisions when you are at 10, most irrational? You have to bring yourself down to at least 5 before you’ll be in the right mind frame to make good decisions or act without regrets. As a wise man asked me, do you want this moment to be a friend or a foe. Thank's Brian. My advice is that you don’t speak or act until you are back in a rational state of mind.
It’s Not Always About You
Hopefully, you haven't been told this one many times. We have to remember that people are thinking about themselves most of the time. so it leaves little time for people to focus on you and all the other people in their life.

Everyone has their own crap going on. The next time someone gives you a bit of attitude, before you react and take it personal, ask yourself if something else could be going on with them.

Bottom line, there is no point dwelling on anything. It's actually bad for your health. Let it go and get over it.

Parkas for 2015 Winter in Toronto

2015's fall/winter in Toronto has been pretty mild but the cold, snowy days of winter have started. If you don't have a good winter coat yet, I suggest you get out there and find one ASAP. Finding the right coat at a good price is not easy but I think I can help.

Check post, updated in 2018, on where I've find warm winter coats or parkas in Toronto.

Here are some places where I think you may get lucky...

From Curly to Straight in Less Than 1 Hour

My hair has grown a lot since I stopped relaxing. The transition took a long time, about two years, so I'm not about to damage it again. Wearing my hair natural has helped my hair to gain strength and thickness. But sometimes I just want to wear it straight and that means being careful not to damage it.

You've been sending me question about blowouts and how I go from curly to straight without doing severe damage. When it comes to hair growth, I have two key pieces of advice for you. Make sure to give your natural hair moisture and go the extra mile to protect it from heat. That's how I achieved the results in the before and after growth pic below.

These results are all me. I haven't been to a hairstylist in a very long time. Not because I can't find a good one, there are many talented stylists in Toronto. I just prefer to do my hair myself myself. Actually, anyone that knows me will tell you that I LOVE♥ doing my own hair. It comes out exactly how I want it to.


Von Doughnuts on Danforth

The doughnut in this pic is not just any doughnut, it's a Caramel Salt N' Pepa doughnut from Von Doughnuts. It is absolutely delish! I discovered Von one evening strolling along the Danforth with my family after dinner. As soon as we saw the big orange sign and my daughter's favorite word "Doughnuts", we had to check it out.

I'm hooked now but not just because of the doughnuts. I absolutely love the vibe of this place. It's just chill. The people who work there make it even better. My favorite is Nora, we bonded over doughnuts. Well, actually, she's the only Von employee I have met.  As you can see in the pick below, by the time we left, Nora was blowing good-bye kisses. We love her and we'll be back.

We dropped in a little too close to closing time so we only had the Caramel Salt N' Pepa and a few lightly sugared doughnut holes to choose from. But Miss Nora made sure we knew what doughnuts to come back for by reading off the list of flavors …
