I currently live in the HRM, (Halifax Regional Municipality) in the province of Nova Scotia, Eastern Canada.
I was born in Fredericton, the capital city of New Brunswick. My parents are Fred and Pam I have one sister, Mindy who is the mother of my nephew Travis.
I went to elementary and junior high school at Keswick Valley Memorial School in Burtt’s Corner, New Brunswick.
I then attended Nackawic Senior High School until graduation.
After high school I received a Business Administration Diploma with Honours and I got married.
I joined the Navy as a Navel Electronics Technician. I moved to Halifax after completing boot camp. I completed 3 years of training and then decided military life is not for people like me who will not foolishly follow blind orders without a logical explanation of why things are being done the way they are.
I got a divorce and decided to get myself into better shape and try to live a more positive live.
I decided that part of my more positive lifestyle would be too eliminate a lot of people, habits and ideas from my life that were not positive or had a negative effect on the way I feel. That is not an easy thing to do at first, but then it doesn’t take long to see the difference it makes in your life.
I’m in a happy, positive relationship, working on staying in, and improving my mental and physical fitness all the time, renovating my house, taking care of my dogs and trying to enjoy my life, friends, family and loved ones as much as I can because you never know when life will through you a curve ball that you may not recover from…
I think it is human nature to want to BE MORE. I think society in general has confused 'being more' with 'having more'.
Being more is a simple idea. You simply desire to be a better person, try to improve your self from day to day. It has more to do with morals, and how you treat the world and it's inhabitants.
Having more is also a simple idea. It's the idea that you need to have more things to be happier. It is based on greed and driven by a consumeristic society. Everything and everyone is screaming for us to buy more, have more, increase our value.
In the end there are people out there with much less than you that are much happier than you.
