Hi there! My name is Viv.

I’m an over-thinking, dog-crazy, yoga-loving, copywriter and blogger living in the east end of Toronto with my wonderful husband, daughter, Schi-poo, and — when we’re lucky enough to have her here — NY-based stepdaughter.

I started blogging in May 2017, but this blog has been in the making for several years. It just took me a while to put myself out there because, well, when I write, I really put myself out there.

Every day, I have the same conversations over and over again. Once with the person I’m talking to, and then at least three of four more times in my head! I’m a personal growth addict, always striving to understand my motives, actions and responses so that I can learn from them, lead a more authentic life, and do a better job at living for today. And that’s what this blog is all about.

By sharing my own experiences and thoughts about daily life, my hope is that I might inspire you to make peace, feel joy, or find humour in your own. Perhaps love yourself just a little bit more, even if it’s only for the duration of your visit.

Thanks for stopping by. I truly hope you enjoy your stay.

Viv for today xo
