Movember

Yes it's Movember and time to grow a 'stache. I have always loved 'staches, but for a number of reasons, never really ever grew one. My goal to come up with something like this:
To sponsor: It’s Movember, the month formerly known as November, which is dedicated to growing moustaches and raising awareness and funds for men’s health. I have joined the movement and will be donating my upper lip to the cause for 30 days. My Mo will spark conversations, and no doubt generate some laughs; all in the name of raising vital awareness and funds prostate cancer.

Why am I so passionate about men’s health?
*On average men live 4-5 years less than women
*1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
* 25,500 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year in Canada

I invite you to support me by donating to me http://www.movember.com/m/1680096

You can even go old school and write a cheque payable to “Movember Canada”, reference my name and Registration Number 1680096 and send it to: Movember Canada, 119 Spadina Avenue, PO Box 65, Toronto, ON M5T 2T2

All donations are tax deductible.

We only have a month to grow Mos and raise awareness and fund, so please come along for the ride.
Funds raised will help make a tangible difference to the lives of others. Through the Movember Foundation and their men’s health partner, the Prostate Cancer Canada, Movember is funding world class awareness, research, educational and support programs which would otherwise not be possible.

3 Words - 2020

Here they are, my 3 words for 2020. Funny thing I can't find my 3 words from 2019, I know I had them just didn't blog them. Shouldn't have tossed out that post-it note. Oh well on with the present. 2020 3 Words: Resilience -  Resilience is defined as "   the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness." If  the craziness of 2019 taught me anything it's that I have to be more resilient.  Having endured multiple career setbacks in 2019 it would be easy to just give up, but what fun would that be. 2020 is my year so I'm going to be tough and manage to overcome the difficulties that life throws at me. Plan - I need to make a better effort of creating concrete plans and sticking to them. If the plan doesn't work scrap it and come up with a new one...but plan. For too long I have just shown up and left things to "fate" (more on that for a later post). Stillness - Create more time for meditation, reflection

First bike ride to work of the Year!

What a great day! I rode my bike to work for the first time since Mid November. Wow, I can't belive what I was missing. There is definetly no better way to start your day than taking a 14.8 KM bike ride by the lake. I don't even care that it's raining for the ride home. Doesn't matter. I big shout out to my boy Shawner D. Carl . who has loaned me a brand new Jamis Aurora Elite to ride while he makes me a new single speed mystery machine. Excellent ride, really notice the carbon fork.I was flying, well for first the 5 km's or so and then I started to fade. Time to go put on the Shammy and ride in the rain. Later.
