The lighter side of life.

In a world where every day there is news of some new natural disaster or man made trauma, it is important to also see the lighter side of life to keep the beauty and wonder of the world alive in your heart.

For several months, I have been writing a weekly post at Sundays with Beaumont — Conversations with my Sheepadoodle.

As I said to my eldest sister as we were talking about how cheeky Beaumont is, “I find it fascinating how, even though I am the author, I still can’t win any conversation with Beau!”

Reality check. I’m both sides of the conversation! It’s not that I can’t win. It’s just that I like letting Beaumont get the upper hand! It amuses me and his readers.

Given that these conversations create joy and laughter for those who read them, creating them pleases me and brings me into my heartspace where every act of service, no matter how small, is a reflection of what I want to create more of in the world; kindness, compassion, joy and Love.

So, while these conversations are not ‘real’, they serve a real purpose. They remind me to not take myself so seriously. To not be so caught up in taking myself so seriously, I forget to have fun by creating love and joy in the world.

These conversations also remind me that life is precious, this journey brief. It’s important to find the joy in every day moments.

What do you do to find joy in everyday moments? How do you stay out of the quagmire of taking yourself so seriously, you forget to have fun?

My new blog: Sundays with Beaumont

For sometime I have been posting FB conversations with Beaumont, the Sheepadoodle.

They’re light-hearted, funny talks that speak to me in different ways.

What I truly enjoy about them is the opportunity to stretch my creative writing muscles, to create a ‘persona’ for Beau that is consistent, quirky and a bit sassy.

Over time, people have suggested I write a book about my conversations with Beau. Last Sunday, a reader suggested I start a blog called, “Sunday’s with Beaumont” mostly because the conversations are usually posted on Sundays.

Yesterday I launched a new blog:  “Sundays with Beaumont“.

These are light-hearted, sassy talks in which Beaumont generally always gets the last word and my human peculiarities are the constant source of his back-talk.

I hope you join me in our chats.

I love the idea of bringing joy and sassiness into the world through conversations with my furry friend Beaumont.

I hope you do too!

Here is a portion of yesterday’s chat. You can read the rest at the blog:

Beaumont: So… what’s with the blog you’ve started about me?

Me: Well, it’s not really about you. It’s about our conversations. I’m sharing them.

Beaumont: I see. And when were you going to tell me about this?

Me: I am. Right now.

Beaumont (sarcastically): How thoughtful. Have you spoken with my lawyers?

Me: Pardon me? Your lawyers?

Beaumont: Yes. If you plan on capitalizing on my brilliance by using my words in a commercial endeavour, then I need to ensure my rights are protected.
