Calgary Get Away

A great get away just outside the is just 10 km West of Calgary along the Trans Canada Highway. Calaway Park is Western Canada's Largest Outdoor Family Amusement Park. Operating on 100 acres of land, this amusement park has 32 rides... and counting. As they continue to grow, over the years they keep growing and expanding.

Calaway Park opened their doors in 1982 with 14 rides. Today (2019) there's 32 rides, 20 food locations, 24 skill testing games and five attractions.

My family and I had the chance to visit Calaway Park for their Friday Family Fun Nights. SO MUCH FUN! I didn't expect anything else. But, what's amazing is that the park is a one pay gate. This year, (2019) Friday Family Fun Nights all month in July is special pricing of $17.95 per person starting at 5pm. That gets you in for all the excitement! All the rides. All the shows. All the live entertainment.

My youngest is the trill seeker and wanted to do all the exciting rides... I however like rides close to the ground!! And if it's too hot, you can always head to the 3D theatre for a short family friendly film in the air-conditioned Cinemagic 3 theatre.

Timber Falls was a huge hit for our family!! You get a thrill from three high velocity drops and zig-zag river. And if you're on the sidelines, for a loonie or toonie you can play along with two explosive water cannons. Trust me, they won't expect it!

A new ride this year (2019) is the Bumble Blast. It looks innocent, but it's a spinning coaster along a figure-eight track! The little thrill seeker in your family will love it.

It really is a great experience right in our own back yard. If you've never been, GO! If it's been a while, GO! It's a great time at Calaway park!

Our adventure was July 12, 2019 for the Calaway Comic Fest for Kids. A sweet experiences with the photo op zone. Visit https://www.calawaypark.com for more information.

Be The Best You | Look In Your Own Community | Volunteer

by Christina Rowsell

Look In Your Own Community
Image © www.christinarowsell.com
Working at a radio station I’m often asked by people where a good place to volunteer is. We have the need in our hearts to give back, but sometimes don’t know where to start.

Start by looking in your own community. Sometimes there’s plenty of opportunity to give back right around the corner. Call the local community centre and see if they know if any charities that are looking for volunteers. Or you can simply check out google and find out volunteering opportunities in your city.

Plenty of studies suggest, the more you give the happier you’ll feel. Volunteering is a great way to improve your self-confidence and increases your sense of accomplishment. But if we stay true to our topic, on how you can be the best you, know that volunteering and helping out reduces stress and depression. By volunteering you’re giving yourself a sense of purpose.

There was an American report on the health benefits of volunteering. There’s a great quote in this study too that says, “… there is also a common wisdom that those who give of themselves also receive.”

Here’s a few charities we support: 100 Kids Calgary, 100 Women Who Care, Calgary Humane Society, Made By Momma and more.

Get out and volunteer to be the best you know how.

Be The Best You | Forgiveness

by Christina Rowsell
@RadioChristina

Forgiveness

Image © www.christinarowsell.com
Zig Ziglar said, “There will always be people in your life who treat you wrong. Be sure to thank them for making you strong.” That might be the perfect place to start in your journey of forgiveness.

I truly love that quote from Zig Ziglar because it helps you find a path towards healing. Forgiveness isn’t easy. In fact, many people go their whole lives without forgiving. Having the burden of hurt on your shoulders weighs heavy on your thoughts and emotions. If you allow hurt from your past to hold you down there will never be an opportunity to move forward.

In order to start the process of forgiveness you must first believe that forgiveness is achievable. You need to believe that you can forgive someone for their actions. But first you need to know that the original action was theirs, not yours. Sometimes we believe that people do terrible things to us because of our own fault. Not true! It was their actions, and they chose to do those things to you. You were the recipient of their actions, and by no means is that your fault. You are in control of your own actions. Remember that if someone decides to choose to hurt you, it is not your fault. Once you forgive yourself for something you didn’t choose to do, you can move forward to forgiving them for their actions.

But, why do you need to forgive them. You don’t. You don’t need to forgive them if you choose not to. However if you live with not forgiving them, the actions they choose to do to you will weigh heavy in your life.

There’s a great site called the Power of Positivity and they have a great article on how to truly forgive someone and how to let it go here https://www.powerofpositivity.com/psychologists-explain-truly-forgive-someone-let-go/. This article explains why it’s hard to do and how to find your path to forgiveness. What I love is how this article explains how forgiveness is a choice. You are not responsible to others actions, but you are fully responsible for your own.

The power of forgiveness gives you the ability to move forward.

Be The Best You | No More Excuses

by Christina Rowsell
@Radio Christina 

No More Excuses

Image © www.christinarowsell.com
I remember someone saying to me, “If is a big word.” At the time I was young and didn’t really know what it meant. From what I’ve figured out, it means that “if” is one of those words requires a BIG leap of faith. It’s a word that can only work IF you’re willing to go after it.

IF only I had more money. IF only I had more time. IF only I was stronger. But, what IF you didn’t need more money, time or strength? What IF you stop finding excuses and actually did what you wanted to do. It’s time to stop finding excuses and to just do. If you’re picking up what I’m saying, then you’re probably thinking, “You’re right. What am I waiting for?” But, if you are afraid, and you always find something that stops you, then you’re someone who may find excuses to not live the life you’ve always wanted.

So, how do you stop having an excuse for everything? Excuses will only limit your capabilities. If you understand that excuses rationalize your actions – for not moving forward – then you can start to recognize the excuses you’re making up. Those excuses to circumstances are often the main reason you’re not able to accomplish what you desire! If you want to get more out of your life, stop finding an excuse to not move on it.

First you have to understand why you make excuses. Is it out of fear? Are you afraid of what you aren’t sure your capable of? If your excuses are out of fear, you’ll tend to avoid the situation at all costs, and make up an excuse to not do it. Fear can also mean fear of failure or fear of the unknown. By recognizing fear you can begin to understand your excuses and work towards a solution.

Another common reason for making excuses is the lack of motivation. But, understanding what motivates you will help you set goals and move forward. When you understand why you make excuses you’ll be able to start moving forward to doing and being the best you can be. You have the potential to do and be anything you want, IF you stop making excuses.

Be The Best You | Quiet Space

Quiet Space

Image © www.christinarowsell.com
Turn off technology. Leave behind the social media likes, tweets and shares. Ignore the negative world wide web. It’s all so distracting. Yes, I know, it’s not all negative – like my blog… but sometimes you need to take a break from it all.

Technology has changed the way we live. The information overload from the internet can be overwhelming. You’ll find peace by just unplugging. It will rejuvenate your mind. If you are one who can’t step away, it may take some convincing on your part.

Finding your quiet space will give you the space you need to be in the present. This space will be an opportunity to take care of your mental wellness. Find the conversation within your thoughts to breathe and discover your path. Meditation is also a wonderful way to rejuvenate your thoughts. If meditation is too hard, just being present in your own quiet space will help you focus.

Silence has the ability to give you an energy power that you can’t find anywhere else. The power of quietness allows you to listen to your most important thoughts. There's tranquility in the stillness of a quiet space. The best way to be the best you know how is to listen to your most inner thoughts. Those thoughts are full of your life purpose and greatness. Be the best you know how by taking the time in your own quiet space.

Be The Best You | Surround Yourself With Positive People

by Christina Rowsell
@RadioChristina

Surround Yourself With Positive People

Image © www.christinarowsell.com
Having positive people all around you will definitely improve your whole being. As life has it, we can’t always control this. Whether it’s your work environment or simply going to the store, negative people will always be there. However, when it is in your control, surround yourself with positive people.

It’s time to do some housecleaning with toxic relationships. Sometimes the people who you love aren’t the ones you need to be around. Or family members who give you anxiety just can’t be the people you need them to be. There is a way to still have them in your life, but not affect your positive energy.

Choose your battles. When it comes to family that can’t be the people you need them to be, choose your communication with them. You can still be kind and caring, but you don’t have to spend time with them. Find a way to communicate that lets them know you still love them. But, let go of the energy it takes to spending too much time with them. You need people who lift you up. You need people who make you feel good about being you. You need positive energy to replenish your energy.

I like to call positive people Cheerleaders In Your Back Pocket. These are the people that make you feel good about being alive. They’re the ones who lift you up when you fall. These are the people who get you, whole heartily.

If you want to be the best you know how, then you need to surround yourself with people who make you shine.

Be The Best You | Self Worth

by Christina Rowsell
@RadioChristina

Self Worth

Image © www.christinarowsell.com
Your self worth will come from your thoughts, your actions and your intentions. Starting with your thoughts, you are the only one who needs to know your worth. You are the only one who needs to believe in your worth. But, whom are you trying to be worthy to? YOU! Your self worth isn’t based on what anyone else thinks. Your self worth isn’t for anyone, but you. So, why do we need self worth? Your perception on your own self worth is unquestionably important to your overall well-being and happiness.

Once you start the positive thought process on your worthiness it will translate into your actions and intentions. The belief in your worth will also shine in the contributions you make to any situation. When you value your worthiness, you’ll want to do more for others, and in turn you’ll gain a valuable sense of what you’re capable of.

On the other side, having a high sense of worth and value also increases your self-esteem. This is not to be confused with being conceited, narcissistic or egotistical. The right amount of self-worth contributes to the value you place on who you are, how you contribute and what you’re capable of doing. In light of our goal of being the best you, you know how…know that your self worth is vital in being the best person possible.

Be The Best You | Embrace Failure

by Christina Rowsell
@RadioChristina

Embrace Failure

Image © www.christinarowsell.com
When you set out for your day, you don’t set yourself up for failure. However, as life has it, failure will happen. It’s how you set yourself up before it happens that will smooth out the ride. Some of the best life lessons come from failure. You just can’t paint failure as a bad word. Think of it as a lesson, not a rejection. Easier said than done right?

Make a list of all the “failures” you’ve encountered in your life. Now think about it if it wasn’t a failure? What if you didn’t fail? Chances are your journey would have had a much different outcome. However, look at the successes you’ve had now and how you wouldn’t have been able to experience them if you didn’t fail. We all need life experiences to make us up to who we are today, and those experiences require us to fail. It’s how we pick ourselves up again that will determine our path. Failure is what gives you strength.

Don’t fear failure. If before you decide to try something you’re afraid of failing, you wouldn’t even try it in the first place! Don’t undermine your capabilities and future possibilities all because of fear. Know that sometimes you don’t know how great you’ll be! Fear of failure will only hold you back on your greatness!

Be The Best You | Treat Others The Way You Expect To Be Treated

Treat Others The Way You Expect To Be Treated



Image © www.christinarowsell.com
There’s a saying that most of us learned in Kindergarten… “Treat others the way you expect to be treated.” YES! It might be time to take a step back and re-evaluate the way you speak to other people, or the way you treat them. You may not intend to treat people poorly, but sometimes it happens. Especially if things in your own life aren’t going the way you had hoped they would.

If you set up a camera to monitor every moment in your day, would you be proud of how you acted? Being present will help you with understanding how your words and actions make other people feel.

Are you attentive to other people when they are present? Or are you eager to only tell your story and how things are going in your life? Try asking someone how they are – but really listen to their answer. Don’t just listen to their words, but listen to their emotion and how they answer. You’ll learn so much more about how they’re feeling. Plus you’re validating them. And, in turn, they’ll treat you with the same respect.

As a bonus, remember to also treat pets with the respect they deserve. Being kind to all beings will definitely put you on the right track to being the best you know how.

Nurture Your Soul

Image © www.christinarowsell.com
Listen, the universe is talking to you. It’s happening all around you. Do you find yourself seeing the same signs all the time? Whether it’s numbers, songs or people. The universe is talking to you. It’s time to nurture your soul.

Listening to the signs will improve your quality of life. When you start to feed your soul, you’ll start to notice your love of life. So, how do you start to take care of your soul? What exactly are you feeding?

Your soul gives you the ability to live – it gives you your reason and your consciousness. Your soul is where you have perception and thought process. By feeding your soul, you’re giving yourself the strength to live and your sense of purpose. This is why you want to put yourself in a positive space so you can improve your quality of life. By bringing in your positive energy you then connect your soul to your purpose and greatness.

We all have greatness. It’s a matter of tapping into it to share it with the world. The purpose of your soul is to share your greatness for the greater good. When you nurture your soul, your working at a higher frequency that will bring in more positive energy. The more you can nurture your soul the happier you’ll feel. The happier you feel, the better you’ll be at simply being you.

Be The Best You | Take A Break

@RadioChristina

Take a Break

Image © www.christinarowsell.com
Know when you need to take a break. Give yourself permission to step away when things get overwhelming. You can’t do everything, as much as you’d like to.

By giving yourself permission to give yourself a break you are telling yourself it’s okay to take care of you. Know that when you are filled with too much to do and when things become unbearable, it’s okay to take a break.

You don’t need to reply to that email right away. You don’t need to post to social media this second. You don’t have to stop everything you’re doing to help someone else. The expectations others have on you were set by you. Let them know that you’re taking a break. They’ll completely understand, and may respect your for taking care of you.

In the long run, breaks increase productivity and creativity. Overworking will only cause you more stress and decrease your health. When you take a break you’ll replenish the energy that was depleted. There’s really no better way of taking care of you than taking the break you deserve.

Be The Best You | Expectations


Expectations

Image © www.christinarowsell.com
I’ve always been a firm believer in having high expectations, especially of myself. I believed that by setting high expectations I would achieve big things. Letting go of expectations opens up your mind to discover new and exciting opportunities.

So now what, do or don’t you have expectations? I say it’s a bit of both. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to do or be the best you can. Those expectations come from simply getting up in the morning. Setting up your day for success is healthy. However if you set your expectations too high you run the risk of failure. Again, not that failure is a bad thing, but failing daily can be tough on you.

Set your expectations so that you can meet them everyday. When you exceed your own expectations, celebrate your accomplishments. But, let go of your expectations when they become too unbearable to complete. Plus, every now and then don’t set any expectations and see where the day takes you. Let your day flow and evaluate it at the end of the day with gratitude. You may be pleasantly surprised on how your day turns out when you turn off those expectations.

Be The Best You | Try Something New


Off The Beaten Path Image © www.christinarowsell.com
What is holding you back? Is it the fear of the unknown? As much as routine is good for us in the sense that it gives us a path, sometimes we need to try going off the beaten path! Try something new! As frightening as it may seem, you may be pleasantly surprised. Trying something new opens your mind to opportunities you may not have known had existed in the first place.

Start small. Take baby steps. For example, I thought today I’m going to take a different path than I usually do while walking my dog. I had in my mindset that I was trying something new, and I was open to whatever was going to come my way. To my surprise I came across some blossoming flowers I had never seen before! (See attached image.) Honestly, it took me by surprise how open I was to trying something new, and how I was shown these flowers.

The first step to trying something new is to open your mind to the idea. Follow up on this by trying something new, like the new path on your walk or driving a different route to work. Ease yourself into it until you feel pretty good about trying something new. Next think you know, you’ll try listening to different music or watch a show that you never thought you’d like. The point is, by trying something new you are creating opportunities that you never new existed.

So how does this play out in being the best you know how? If you open your mind to new opportunities you may find new ways to better yourself in love, money and time. There’s a saying that says, “If you don’t like what’s happening, then change it.” But that’s the problem; sometimes we don’t know how to change it. We don’t know how to try something new.

Try to be on the lookout for new opportunities and a new way of looking at things. Sometimes the “same old” isn’t working.  By introducing new ideas you may find better path.

Be The Best You | Live in The Now |

by Christina Rowsell
@RadioChristina

Live in the NOW


Image © www.ChristinaRowsell.com

You know the saying, the past is behind you and the future is tomorrow, so live in the now! It’s easier said and done. As the past is what makes us who we are today and we all live for the future. But, what if you took a moment to live in the now? Try it. You’re here now, reading this as the world goes on around you. This is a moment to be all about you.

How do you feel? How do you look? Take a deep breath in. Deep breath out. Think about your whole self from head to toe. By taking this time to be in the moment you’re validating your whole being. Yes, you know that there are things from the past that need to be healed in order to move forward to the future. But you won’t get there if you don’t live in this moment right now.

Being fully present in each moment allows you to focus. Worrying about the past won’t get you anywhere, it’s in the past. Worrying about the future only creates stress and builds up anxiety. If you place yourself in the present you’ll be able to focus on the task at hand and be fully aware of where you are, where you came from and where you want to go.

Today’s world is full of distractions. Life happens in the now and if there are too many things going on, slow down and finish one thing at a time. Instead worrying about all the things you need to get done in the future, put your effort into what you’re doing now, then move onto the next task. Live in the now, be in the moment. Let life happen as it’s happening instead of trying to control how it’ll look and feel in the future. One of the best ways to be the best you know how is to live in the now.
