A pleasure getting back to the #photography basics and exploring my wonderful #Montreal boroughs namely #Verdun, #Lasalle, #VilleEmard, #Lachine 😀 Thanks to my friend amd fellow photographer +Koralie Deetjen-Woodward​ (www.koraliewoodward.com) for keeping me in check and not letting me call off what was indeed a delightful and engaging #photowalk 😊 #StayAwesome
It’d been a seriously long time since I had actually taken some time off to grab my camera and go out shooting - not for clients, not for any other professional or creative venture, but, as they say, “just because”. I used to enjoy photo walks on the regular but recently, time to myself has become a severely scarce resource. So, when I called up my friend and fellow photographer Koralie Woodward to join me and help me in ironing out the detai...

As a parent, this is a very important issue to tackle early. #PersonalFinance for #Millenials
When some parents talk to their college-aged children about money, it can feel like they come from two different planets, not just two different generations.

You were born with the ability to change someone’s life. – Don’t ever waste it.  Be kind.  Be present.  Be someone who makes a difference.  In a gentle way, you can shake the world.  Truth be told, the purpose of life is not just to be happy in your own little bubble; it is to be helpful, to be honorable, to be compassionate and kind, to have your life make some kind of difference that you have lived and lived well.  Go ahead; leave the world a little better than you found it. - via: http://www.marcandangel.com/2014/11/16/9-good-reminders-that-will-change-the-way-you-think/

Oh Man😀 I need that +Marc Chernoff​ ! So true! Thanks for sharing this powerful thought. #StayAwesome
 
You are YOU for a reason.  Ignore the distractions.  Listen to your own inner voice.  Mind your own business.  Keep your best wishes and your biggest goals close to your heart and dedicate time to them every day.  Don’t be scared to walk alone, and don’t be scared to love it.  Don’t let anyone’s ignorance, drama or negativity derail you from your truth, and from loving who you are. - via: http://www.marcandangel.com/2015/01/07/10-things-self-loving-people-do-differently/

Changing the World, One Day at a Time
Fitness is something that concerns us all. It impacts on our quality of life, our ability to make a living and in the way we view ourselves and our place in the world. Yet fitness, traditionally, has been tied up into paid services, expensive gym membership fees, the buying of equipment and expensive fitness accessories. It became part of the glossy lifestyle of a relatively small percentage of people, when in reality it should be part of the everyday life of each of us. 

We all want to be fitter, stronger and have a better quality of life but very few of us can afford it. 

If you want change, you have to be that change. That’s why we set up the NR project. +Google+ has been instrumental to getting the project from a simple idea to the stage it is at now. Every response, every share here made it feel possible that such an idea would and will work in the long run. The fundamental concept behind it is that we all have the right to feel comfortable in our own body, in charge of it and in control of our lives. 

Today we design blueprints one can easily follow without spending any money in the comfort of their home without any equipment having limited amount of time. Through the neilarey.com resource everyone with no exception has access to high quality training plans, individual visual easy-to-follow workouts, healthy recipes that don’t break the bank, budget food choices, nutritional advice and motivational articles. Because everything is bodyweight-training based, you don’t need expensive equipment, or indeed a gym. Because each workout is designed to be compact, you don’t need a lot of space or a lot of time. 

A year later we have a small team of volunteers responsible for the resource and two workout workshops which help us test new routines, challenges and programs before they are released. We passionately believe in what we do to the point that we all put in more hours into the project and the workouts than the donations we receive could cover. Yet, staying true to our message we run no ads, accept no gifts or sponsorships. The project is supported and continues running on user donation alone. 

We maintain high quality in our output, run volunteer workshops locally and globally and get to start each day with the feeling that what we do truly helps make a difference in someone’s life. What we have built is perhaps just a drop in the ocean but we believe it counts. 

Thank you for being here, thank you for your support and for making it all happen. Happy Holidays!

No matter who you are, no matter what you did, no matter where you’ve come from, you can always change and become an improved version of yourself.  Peace, strength and understanding will come to you when you manage to tune out the noisy judgments of others, in an effort to better hear the soft and steady hum of your own inner strength.  And once you hear it, you will realize that it’s not too late to be what you might have been. - via: http://www.marcandangel.com/2014/06/18/15-toxic-thoughts-you-need-to-drop-for-a-better-life/

"Come Hungry" A tale of a #poutineaddict's first-time at local #Montreal eatery +Poutine Centrale#Epic #Food #NewBlogPost
My name is Olivier Day - I am a poutine addict. When my colleagues suggested we should do a “Poutine Outing”, I was game. Two reasons: a) I am a poutine addict b) I am a poutine addict. Thing is I have eaten A LOT of poutine in my day. So, suffice to say that wherever we decided to go should definitely be something to look forward to. Having lived in Montreal for well over 10 years, trust me when I say that this city has more than once pr...
