My Journey with The Coach

Hello there

Jim, thanks AGAIN for your reminder to post my blog today. You are officially in charge of holding me accountable. I hope I did good today lol.

It's been such a joy raising our daughter. Everyday she surprises us with new stuff. Now she is speaking one word. She started two days ago. Do you know what that word is? I was glad when I heard it. She learned to say "Thank you". Whenever you give her something, she makes sure to say thank you (it's exactly what I always do when people invite me to...eat).

I was talking about it with my wife yesterday, and we came up with the same conclusion. It is not by chance that Skylar is saying the words thank you. You see, a couple of months ago, my wife came up with this brilliant idea. Everyday, before going to sleep, each one of us has to say what we are thankful for. At first it seemed to be redundant, as we were coming up with the same list day in day out, but after a while it became deeper and deeper. I have to con…

My Journey to a Football Game

When Jim told me that there would be a lot of people at The Taste of the Danforth Greek Food festival, I thought he was joking. I thought the entire city was at the festival. It was fun, it was hot and the food was....You know me. In matters of food, only the quantity matters. Unfortunately we had to leave early as Skylar could not handle the heat. We had fun though.

Talking about Jim, last week he called me and asked me this question: Do you know a guy named Mitch? I had to admit that it was the first time hearing that name. Jim then told me that Mitch called him to ask if he knew a guy named Patrick Bizindavyi. Of course Jim knows me. As it turned out, Mitch works for the Toronto Argonauts. For those of you who have no clue of what I am talking about, the Toronto Argonauts are the 2012-2013 champions of the Canadian Football League (I am talking about American Football).

Long story short, the Argonauts are putting together an event for entrepreneurs on September 3rd at their stadiu…

My Journey to Our Wedding Anniversary

It's hard to believe it's been two years that I am married. Time went REALLY fast.

Yes, today is our wedding anniversary, and in a few hours, it will be my wife's birthday. How can you celebrate all of that? As I was thinking about it, my friend Jim called me to invite us to the Taste of the Danforth Food Festival. Did you mention food? I am all in

I am also celebrating 200 posts with my blog. Actually, this is my 201st one. It's been a fun ride, even though I must admit, sometimes it was hard to write anything. I tried to keep the course most of the time, and when I missed a week or two, I had friends (and I am not mentioning you Jim) who reminded me of my commitment.

To tell the truth, I did not think that this blog would last four years. I thought I would lack the inspiration. Amazingly enough, here I am, over 200 post later, still writing.

Sometimes, the inspiration came to me in a very unusual way. This is the case of this week. Do you want to know what happened?…
