Believing In Our Dreams

Dreams, hopes, aspirations, goals. Whichever word fits for you, I’m curious about where our inner fortitude or our self-determination come from to make them reality? What is it within us that gives us the strength, courage and in some cases, the audacity to go after our dreams? Have a listen and I will share a few of my experiences with dreams becoming reality and what those journeys were like. As well, a few tools will be shared as steps you can take in believing in the power of your dreams.

Believing In Our Dreams

You Hold Me Up

My new children’s picture book, You Hold Me Up shares the various ways we can ‘hold each other up.’ While it was written for our youngest citizens, it is a great reminder for all of us of the importance of holding each other up with respect and dignity. In this episode, I share where the idea for the book came from, I read the book and share some of the stories of children’s responses to the book.

05 Wrapping Our Arms Around Change (Love Is Medicine Podcast)

A walk in my neighbourhood was the inspiration for this episode focusing on change. Change is one of the few aspects of life that is guaranteed, but also one that is frequently resisted. What's your approach to change? Does it depend on circumstances? Have a listen and take a few moments to reflect on changes currently unfolding in your life and on the horizon.

04 But One Decision (Love Is Medicine Podcast)

But One Decision is a reflection by Monique on her own journey of recovery from alcoholism and how it is the ‘spaces in between’ that provide the messages, ideas and insights for us. She will revisit a trip to Fort Smith in the North West Territories of Canada. This trip and the witnessing of a young woman as she is released from jail causes Monique to think about the decisions we make, or don’t make and how they create our lived experiences.

03 Too Wild For Words (Love Is Medicine Podcast)

Too Wild for Words is an example of how sometimes we get messages from the most unanticipated sources.

In this episode Monique shares how witnessing the love between a grandmother and grandson inspired her best-selling and award winning book, My Heart Fills with Happiness. She will encourage you to explore what fills your heart with happiness and to experience as much of what fills you as possible.

Thisis the first episodeof the Love Is Medicine Podcast. It is rooted in Monique’s own journey and her journey of recovery. In this episode Monique shares how love is medicine. Not the romantic kind of love, but that is great too, but rather the love of oneself; the love from family and friends; the love for the land, the water and the stars; the love of one’s culture and much more. Really, it’s about the importance of loving one another in the best way possible.
