I'm reading a lot of @markmansonnet these days: "Just as a confident man doesn’t wonder if he’s confident, a happy man does not wonder if he’s happy. He simply is. What this implies is that happiness is not achieved in itself, but rather it is the side effect of a particular set of ongoing life experiences. This gets mixed up a lot, especially since happiness is marketed so much these days as a goal in and of itself. Buy X and be happy. Learn Y and be happy. But you can’t buy happiness and you can’t achieve happiness. It just is. And it is once you get other parts of your life in order." . . . #throwback #tbt #happiness #grateful #uphillfromhere #goals #cyclelikeagirl #cyclinglife #roadcyclist #france #pyrenees #cyclefrance #vegancyclist #veganpowered #climbinglife #cols #fitchick #cyclefrance #roadslikethese #womenwhocycle #fromwhereiride #rittecycle

Well @feen.com.au you were definitely worth the wait! This kit is absolutely gorgeous and despite the recent snowfall up here in Canada, I am hoping I can wear it outside before the end of the year. It fits like a glove (you were right) and is so soft and comfortable and bright... This is my new favourite kit in my favourite colour; definitely one of my favourite top 10 companies to deal with. Customer service is/was absolutely stellar. Thank you! . . . #feen #newkitday #purple #kitfit #cyclinglife #performancewear #cyclingkit #cyclist #ride #girlswhoride #womenwhoride #cyclingwear #cyclinggear #vegancyclist #kitwatch #bike #bikelife #cyclingfashion #cyclelikeagirl #womenswear #roadcyclist #roadwear #kitreview #lovecycling #fitchick

Is this not the most beautiful bottle you've ever seen? Perfect for a friend celebrating a bunch of milestones? I think so! Happy weekend! . . . . #newrelease #freixenet #prosecco #sparklingwine #celebration #milestone #lcbo #winelover #party #tistheseason #friyay #bearinggifts #designappreciation

Throw back to climbing cols and drinking espresso atop glorious mountains in the hot European sun; discovering how strong I am and pushing myself beyond my perceived boundaries. Looking forward to more grand Euro adventures in 2018. . . . . #tbt #throwback #cows #morecowbell #pass #Aubisque #ColdAubisque #Cols #France #pyrenees #mountains #cycling #climbing #cyclinglife #roadcyclist #cyclingshots #adventure #vegancyclist #pushyourself #inspire #cyclelikeagirl #fitchick #conquer #strive #strava #veganpowered #goodlife

My father-in-law, Allen Emery, just turned 87 and he still rides his bike. He's a pretty amazing man who I have a deep respect for and appreciate very much. Here is a photo of him racing on Bath Road (UK) for the BellVue Cycling Club in 1953. He completed a 100 mile time trial in 4hrs 22mins 41secs. He honestly has not changed all that much in stature or passion and when I look at old photos of him on the bike, I still see the same active man. We are grateful he has passed his love of cycling onto his sons -- and me. . . . #tb #throwback #bellvuecycling #club #uk #cyclist #roadcyclist #cyclinglife #bike #race #inspire #British #cyclingshots #lovecycling #rideyourbike #rideoutside #vintage #oldschool #cyclingfamily #steel #fixedwheel #nogears

I'm almost finished gushing about this women's kit from @caspcycling -- but no promises! Unbelievably soft, hugs all my curves perfectly and now that I'm done my espresso, I'm jumping on my bike for a ride inside sesh. I just adore this updated women's kit. Thumbs up Casp -- so so pleased! . . . . #newkitday #kitfit #cyclinglife #caspcycling #performancewear #cyclingkit #cyclist #ride #girlswhoride #womenwhoride #cyclingwear #cyclinggear #vegancyclist #kitwatch #bike #bikelife #cyclingfashion #cyclelikeagirl #womenswear #roadcyclist #roadwear #kitreview #lovecycling #fitchick

I had an issue with some bib shorts I had purchased and brought with me to cycle the Pyrenees in June of this year. I emailed the company while on holiday and they promptly responded offering to replace the shorts once they reprinted an updated better pattern. They said they had my name on file and would take care of it but I honestly never expected to hear from them again. I got home today to find a special delivery: a brand new beautiful full kit from one of my favourite companies, @caspcycling. An outstanding company answers your emails promptly when you have an issue with their product. They offer solutions and stand behind what they manufacture. And @caspcycling make some beautiful kits. I already have my eye on a new one on their site. I am so excited to wear this... Thank you for being such an outstanding company that is a pleasure to support. . . . #newkitday #kitfit #cyclinglife #caspcycling #performancewear #cyclingkit #cyclist #ride #girlswhoride #womenwhoride #cyclingwear #cyclinggear #vegancyclist #kitwatch #bike #bikelife #cyclingfashion #standupcompany #respect

I paint like I cycle long distances: meditating, pondering, working things out in my head. . . . #daylightsavings #fallback #artistlife #artdeadline #painting #ottawaarts #painter #art #artshow #flower #series #decomposingflower #acrylic #inspire #earlymorning

"Practice any art, music, singing, dancing, acting, drawing, painting, sculpting, poetry, fiction, essays, reportage, no matter how well or badly, not to get money and fame, but to experience becoming, to find out what's inside you, to make your soul grow." . I've been struggling to paint these last few days, trying to get something down on canvas that I'm happy with. Nothing has been working. Nothing felt good. But yesterday afternoon the planets seemed to align and I started painting and didn't move from my seat until midnight. This morning I woke up early to find myself still feeling the pull to paint. I love when it all just works for me, when it feels right, effortless, strong. These are my favourite days. . . . #painting #painter #art #artistlife #creative #muse #flowers #process #start #artshow #deadline #exhibit #motivation #inspiration #canvas #ottawaarts #productive
