The Life of a Nomad - Big Announcements, Growing Older and Moving

spend your life doing strange things with weird people


Well, it has certainly been a while since I last did a post. I apologize. Sometimes I get caught up in life and forget how much I love writing. Let's do some catch up, shall we? There is a LOT to cover.

Last time I left you I was living in the Big Apple, the city where dreams are made of, New York! I had an absolutely amazing time. I never thought I would live in New York, it didn't strike me as my kind of place but I'm glad I had the experience. I made some amazing friends and look forward to visiting again but as far as living, I'm much happier not being there. I now live back in my home country of Canada in Toronto and love it, despite the horrid weather. The big plan was always to move here after Jessica and I finished our volunteering trip across the USA and I'm glad I've finally made it. I've only been here a short while but the moment I got into town I already felt more at home than I ever did in New York. There is something about being back in Canada that just lets me breathe again, like I'm not all strung out. Toronto is a beautiful city. It's large enough to keep me happy but also still has a small town feel to a lot of it because of all the funky artistic spaces.

My Interview With Financial Author Kate Northrup

Calan Breckon with Kate Northrup at the I CAN DO IT! event in New York


Last week I achieved what seemed to be a great feat in my life, I interviewed the author of "Money: A Love Story," Kate Northrup for my radio show Discovering Your Truth on YTP Radio. Since the show is still very much in its infancy stages with this only being its tenth show I was flabbergasted when Kate agreed to the interview. Doesn't it feel amazing when we breaking through those barriers we set up for ourselves in life and do something we never thought possible?

My 30 Day Yoga and Play Challenge

Calan-Breckon-Play

Stress. We all have it in some way, shape or form and we all have our ways of dealing with it, some healthier than others. I recently found myself in a bit of a rut and couldn't seem to find my way out of it until the amazing Sandy Dow, Stress to Success Coach, came along and kicked me around a bit. Thank goodness she did because I needed it! Working with Sandy helped open up some things that I needed to face and get sorted out.

How To Overcome The Holiday "I'm Single" Blues

Calan-Breckon-Dear-Someone-Video

I'm going to be honest here and let you all know that this video was really difficult for me to make. The reason behind that is people don't like appearing to be vulnerable or imperfect. A lot of the time we like to wear these suits of "I'm totally cool, everything is fine in my life." We all know it's total utter crap but knowing that for ourselves and putting it out there for the world to see are two very different things. In this video I allowed myself to just put it all out there and share with you what helps me move through the process of being single during the holidays.

My Conversation with @JordanBach on @YTPRadio

http://www.discoveringyourtruth.com/2013/11/my-conversation-with-jordan-bach-ytp-radio.html

Today was the launch of my radio show "Discovering Your Truth" on YTP Radio and I was lucky enough to have the amazing life coach Jordan Bach on as my first guest. Jordan is such a sweet and genuine soul, it was so great getting to speak with him. We talked all about how he got his spiritual start, what he's working on as well as leaders who inspire him and tips about life.
