Kakabeka Falls have a drop of 40 m (130 ft), Cascading into a gorge carved out of the Precambrian Shield by meltwater following the last glacial period. Because of its size, it has been nicknamed “the Niagara of the North”
Just something beyond myself.
I call it "The door to heaven". It was late August, just before classes were starting up again. I got to experience one of the best summer getaways at a cottage up in Muskoka with my extended family. Never had I felt more free than on that lone kayak in the middle of the lake. Never had I ever gone biking in the rain with my sisters and been bitten so many times and survived my godmother's notorious horror stories while walking in the dark of night in tandem. What a blast. #AerxiaStoryTime
Self-care. What I find interesting about the act of self-care is how it seems to be focused in on weekends. With #selfcaresaturday and #selfcaresunday lighting up our weekend newsfeeds it makes us think that #selfcare should be held back for the weekend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I believe otherwise. We need to bring selfcare into the work week, when we can find ourselves most out of place and over worked. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve been making a conscious effort to practice selfcare midweek. Today I journaled for half an hour before seeing patients and it’s left my mind feeling 100 lbs lighter. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So I challenge YOU! Make the active choice to bring your self care into the work week. Make sure to let me know how it goes in the comment below. ALSO if you are already a master of midweek self care let me know about it in the comments section below!
Annie Taylor, a 63-year-old schoolteacher from Auburn, New York, was the first to survive a trip over Niagara Falls. Along with her cat, she took the plunge in a barrel and descended over the falls in 1901. Although it’s now illegal to attempt to go over the falls, you can still zipline, helicopter or take a boat tour under the falls. If you want to get up close and personal with this natural wonder, don’t forget your raincoat!

Avec son chat, elle a pris le plongeon dans un tonneau et elle est descendue dans les chutes en 1901. Bien que ce soit maintenant illégal d’essayer de franchir les chutes, vous pouvez toujours faire de la tyrolienne, un tour d’hélicoptère ou un tour de bateau sous les chutes. Si vous voulez vous rapprocher de cette merveille naturelle, n’oubliez pas votre imperméable!
What I wished for got lost
In the depths of the sea
I’ve watched them dissappear
Dissolve into particles
Who was this person now
Remnants of the hidden?

The Circle of Life
I took this last year around this time! This Red Fox was, presumably, bringing food back to their den! I do love both of these animals, but it is the circle of life. Hard to see sometimes, but seeing this Fox carrying the Hare back to the den was an interesting experience! He/she had to put it down a number of times to rest. The Hare was almost as big as the Fox!! I also had to take advantage of the Algonquin sign!! 🦊🐇
