Managing Grief-Part 1: Recognizing Grief

Navigating grief and loss in a 5 part series: a rather taboo subject in society that encompasses much more than the death of a loved one.

Purpose and Burnout

Like most people, I have found this last year to be incredibly difficult. I am a Director of Care and a Nurse. I am a published author, a yoga instructor, grief counsellor and a mom. I have travelled the world many times over, searched for myself, my home and my purpose. I have experienced severalContinue reading “Purpose and Burnout”

Burnout as an opportunity

I am a pretty avid fan of all things mental health. I’ve had a “fair bit” of wellness challenges-including burnout. I bring this up because I recently joined Clubhouse (find me @kimberhosen) and a lot of the conversations seem to end up speaking about burnout. I have a feeling I am not the only oneContinue reading “Burnout as an opportunity”

Going Platinum, baby

I made the decision a few months ago to go platinum, of the hair variety-not record. And surprisingly it was a really hard decision for me to make.

This one was a 40×60 commissioned acrylic on canvas. It is titled Ploutos / Wealth. (Ploutos is the Greek word for wealth, abundance, riches, opulence).Continue reading “Wealth”

New Adventures, Part Deux

Take to the skies my darlings.

New Adventures

As I entered the cockpit, one foot at a time, I remembered what my flight instructor had told me as he prattled off instructions and reminders. “Don’t touch anything” was my biggest test apparently. I am definitely not a pilot, yet. I have not had the myriad of hours nor the ground training to supportContinue reading “New Adventures”

Luxury Travel, Redefined

One thing that can be said unequivocally about the southern coast of France is that its beauty is only matched by its decadence. Every experience had in the region continues to top the last. From gorgeous seascapes to deliciously prepared fresh meals, it is truly an experience to enjoy and indulge in. From the momentContinue reading “Luxury Travel, Redefined”
