Welcome!

I am Christina McDermott.

My intention for this space is to serve as inspiration and community to us as women, at this middle point of our lives, where we are not just managing, but we are thriving.

Life is beautiful. Live each day with passion and purpose.

My Ossobuco with Creamy Polenta

My Ossobuco with Creamy Polenta

I love comfort food.  There is something about a hearty slow-cooked meal that just soothes me right to my soul.  Hearty does not necessarily have to be unhealthy so I've adapted these recipes to suit my preferences.  Both of these recipes are super easy and especially...

Garden Tomato Pasta Sauce

I was shown this way of making pasta sauce by an Italian friend ages ago.  She made it frequently and I remember remarking to her that making sauce was so much work.  She laughed and said watch this. 

“A Change is Gonna Do Me Good”

I have had to make some major decisions and choices. I am now starting to feel that the changes that I have been forced to make are actually an opportunity for me to move into my true self and to live some of those dreams that I have been holding on to.

What Is Sexy?

I think for me it is something . . . . . . It has a lot to do with feeling confident and feeling beautiful. All of it comes from what is inside of you.

Me: Becoming #sociallybrave

I think everyone has something going on in their lives, maybe something they are struggling with. No one’s world is perfect but by sharing a bit of yourself, being somewhat vulnerable, but mostly being willing to uplift and empower, we connect as women, as friends.

Self-Care Is a Non-Negotiable for Middle of Life Women

Self-care is not selfish. Instead, it’s about taking care of yourself so that you are replenishing your reserves so that you are then able to care for others from a place of strength and happiness.

I’m Going to Marie Kondo My Life

I need to get rid of all of the things that are weighing me down. Things that I’ve outgrown, things that bring me down, and things that don’t bring me joy. I want space.

Weekend Brunch is the Best! ☕️🍳

Here was the perfect day! Brunch followed by a visit to a bookstore and a vintage clothing store where my girl found the perfect little denim jacket. The best part was just taking time to spend together catching up on all of life’s little details that we skip over during the busy week.

What are your weekend plans? Whatever they are I hope they bring you love and joy. Xo

All about the boots. 🧡❤️

These boots really bring me joy. The colour, the texture, the style - from the first time I saw them. 👢👢

I don’t know but I think I’m feeling a bit of Covid exhaustion going into March. Almost a year ago and we were planning for our trip to Palm Springs then the world turned upside down. Trip was canceled and so was a lot of other stuff.

So yes, I’m really working at finding joy. How about you? How are you managing?

Oh yes! Actions speak louder than words.

I think when you have children they happily point out your inconsistencies. When they get to be teenagers on the verge of adulthood, well, I assure you that you definitely need to have your S**t straight.

We can profess to be honest, kind, generous and all sorts of other virtuous traits but if our actions don’t support this, well then, the obvious is true.

At this point of my life, there is no point in pretending to be anything other than what I am. I also like the fact that I will not agree to something just because it won’t ruffle feathers or it’s easier. This is what midlife brings: the desire and the confidence to just be who you are.

What about you? Are your actions congruent with who you say you are?

Comfortable with being Uncomfortable 🦋

Sometimes, I think, you just have to be comfortable with not knowing.

Not knowing the why, the what, the how . . . not knowing all the answers. Surrendering to what is and what will be. I can assure you that this does not come naturally to me but it is something that I am learning and I want to become adept at.

So today, I will simply relax into this moment. I have a book, a journal and my coffee. I remind myself of my decided purpose. I expect the discomfort to pass. Perhaps a walk will take care of the excess energy.

Enjoy your day.

“Happiness is my purpose now.” 🦋💖

This is what my girlfriend said yesterday on the tail end of our hike. She literally stopped me in my tracks (well, we had paused already, but anyway). You see, I’ve been flirting with happiness this whole year past but I don’t think happiness and I have really connected.

I have moved forward into this next chapter of my life feeling strength and courage. I have also made a startling discovery that I have been unfulfilled in purpose and potential for the duration of an entire relationship. Wow. How did I let that happen? Where did happy go? The answer to this deserves a deeper writing, so I’ll save that.

Anyway, this gnawing feeling that I must have purpose: what if my purpose was just to be happy? What if I made every single choice not based on obligation or achievement or or ambition or habit? What if each and every day, I made every decision, every choice on whether I was going to feel happy? That’s it, happy.

So here’s my plan. I am going to let go of that gnawing feeling. This is going to take work but I’m so ready for it. Happy is my purpose. Repeat: happy is my purpose.

P.S. Thanks Lynn. xo

The dilemma of the wounded heart. 💔

Being in recovery from a broken heart, makes stepping into the turbulent waters of new love feel incredibly scary. As you are healing, you start feeling strong and somewhat confident, so to allow yourself to be heart vulnerable is incredibly nerve wracking.

To be open to receiving love is one thing but to consider giving your heart, yes, that requires courage. 💖

Perhaps, the answer is to tread slowly, carefully. What do you think?

Do you remember your first car? 🚗

Oh, I sure do. It was red, just like this. A Ford Mustang. I had saved and saved for it to add to the money that my mom had been saving for me since I was a baby. That part was quite remarkable as she had banked for years the “Baby Bonus” cheques the government sent for all children born at that time. My Canadian friends will know what I’m talking about.

Anyway, I was so excited to buy my car and so proud of it. I took such good care of it. I mean that was my first big purchase and I felt so adult.

I got to experience this again but in a different way. My girl just bought her first vehicle. She saved and she saved. She searched and she searched. She too had a little help. Nevertheless, I got to share in her excitement and achievement. I am so proud of her. It brought me back to my time way back when.

What I realized is this: this feeling of accomplishment and pride never goes away. Each time I overcome a hurdle, each time I conquer a fear, each time I stand up for myself, I feel a bit of that great feeling. I know my girl will always remember this.

The great thing is that these days when I see another woman triumph (in business, relationship, maybe getting out of relationship, health, finding her passion) I feel some of that same joy that I feel for and with my daughter.

As much as I feel it for them, I feel it for me. It’s like it’s a collective “at-a’girl”!!!

Yes, it all makes my heart full. This is what life is about. ❤️

Sharing Is Caring . . . 💝

I curated this gift basket to drop off for a friend. I filled it with little things that might bring some love and cheer, and encourage heart healing: a salt lamp, chakra stones, books, candle, tea and sweets.

My wish is that my friend feel my love and support, and that maybe this gesture renews her faith in goodness and gives her a boost of strength and resilience to carry on in her journey.

I did this for her and I did this for me. It brings me so much pleasure and joy to create and to share. I also remember how much something like this meant to me, then.

I love to create gift baskets. I always do this for guests who stay at my home. I so love finding things that will bring smiles of appreciation, and then putting them together in a beautiful, fanciful arrangement. 🎁💐🧺

I encourage you to reach out, too. Send a note, make a phone call or sure, send a basket. Many around us are feeling the effects of these times or other circumstance. Your gesture will touch your heart as much as it touches theirs.

💝

Changed, I am. Reduced, absolutely not. 🦋

Here’s the thing: life happens to us whether we want it to or not. How we handle it is the real story.

I want my story to read that she handled it with grace and strength. She was resourceful, resilient and kept her integrity. The story would end, she became the woman she was destined to be.

So, if you are facing some tough challenges know that you can handle them keeping your character but calling upon all your grit. Just do you.

“High Maintenance”?!! 🤔

Have you ever been referred to as “high maintenance”?

I have. Many times. Often. I remember the first time I heard that, I found it quite offensive. After all, I had just been asking for what I wanted. Please don’t misunderstand, I wasn’t asking for a new Birkin that month or for daily coffee in bed. 😄 I was simply asking that he did what he said he was going to do. HM

Or maybe it was that time in a restaurant when I asked for “medium-rare” and I got “WELL-DONE” (as in extremely-well-done) then politely asked for a redo. HM

Or maybe it was that time, I was negotiating a contract and I very specifically stated the terms and dates required for completion. HM

I’m sure you get my drift. Anyway, I’m okay with being High Maintenance because it means that I know what I want and I don’t want to settle for less, personally or professionally.

I’ve had a few conversations lately where a friend has felt trepidation asking for what she needed because it might stir the pot or cause bad feelings. My advice is this: you have the right to ask for what you want and need, and you don’t have to settle for less. Ever. Never.

So be High Maintenance and be proud of it!! You are only asking for what you want and what you deserve.

Drop a 🙋🏻‍♀️ if this is you. Send me a DM if you have a story I need to hear. 😲

Sustainable Fashion is definitely on trend! ♻️🌎

I received this classic wool plaid jacket for Christmas from my daughter who found it in a local vintage store. I love the colour and the loose easy fit but most impressive was the quality of the fabric and the construction. 💝

I have always been a lover of vintage fashion and luxury resale so I am very happy to see that my girl has inherited this love. Afterall, sustainability in fashion is something that has only recently come to the forefront with major retailers, brands and designers incorporating it into their business models. 🛍

Here are a few of my favourites:

LOVE! 💖💖

My Word for 2021. 💖

I am choosing this word because it is the basis of everything that is important in my life. I want more of it and what I have, I want to grow deeper.

“Love is the essential existential fact. It is our ultimate reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life.”
― Marianne Williamson, Return to Love

This is from one of my favourite books and thought leaders. I first read it over 20 years ago during a very tumultuous time. I’ve been picking it up a lot over the past couple of years and it keeps reminding me that there is one thing that really forms the basis of all things good: love.

For me, it is reflected in my relationships, my surroundings, my being (inside and out), my actions, my creativity, and my dreams. I have plenty of love in my life but I want more.

I do not consider this greedy as this is one resource where the more you get and the more you give, benefits all and everything.

This is why I feel excited about 2021. With more love, goodness abounds.

What is your 2021 Word?

Discernment is absolutely necessary at this age. 💖✨

Here’s how I look at it: I’m in my second half of life so how do I want my world to look? I can say this, that in my remaining days, I want to savour with absolute enjoyment every experience and every person that comes my way. So why waste time on subpar experiences, don’t you agree?

For this reason, standards exist. Experience has shown us what we like and what we don’t ever want to have again. For me, this isn’t about status goods (as in brands, labels or designers) but it is about quality, comfort and esthetic value. If I love something and it meets my standards I will bring it into my world. Otherwise . . . . . well, there is no more settling.

My food needs to be nutritious and delicious. It needs to fill me up but also satisfy with it’s flavour and texture. To experience a meal made with fresh ingredients and with love, is my heart’s desire. 🥂🍽

Same goes for people. I want to be with people who are good, kind, smart, funny, generous, thoughtful, loyal and looking to live their best life. Integrity is important to them as is the desire to uplift and encourage. No longer can I give more than I can receive. No longer will I tolerate being uncomfortable or anything less than happy. 😄

Basic standards. Absolutely vital. How about you? What are yours?

Are you listening? 🤫🤔🧏🏻‍♀️

Maybe I should have asked are you tuning in? Are you paying attention, really paying attention?

What is your body trying to tell you? Are you feeling aches or pains in any parts of your body? Often, the location of this pain can be tied to a particular issue or stressor or lack in your life.

What about your mind? Is it running nonstop? Are you feeling overwhelmed or lacking motivation or disinterested? Are you allowing for ideas or inspiration?

What about your spirit? Can you hear or feel it? What is it trying to tell you? Think of this as your intuition or a vibe that you are getting.

I am using the start of this New Year to really tune in and reset. I am limiting my exposure to external triggers like the news and other energy sappers. This way I can be open and receptive to getting what I need and what I want while limiting distractions and maybe, unwanted triggers. I can feel my body telling me that it needs more attention: sleep, better nutrition, more movement and fresh air. I am also spending less time on SM so that I can feed my mind by reading, listening to podcasts & music, and just being still.

I am also journaling and meditating. I can feel there is more inside to let go, to make room for what I am ready to receive. This part really excites me.

What about you? How are you sailing into 2021? Have you done a reset? Are you listening, paying attention to those subtleties?

Here’s to a Dry January!! 💟

A perfect time for a bit of a reset. I enjoyed the holidays and quite frankly, Covid made happy hour something of a regular thing through most of last year. Too much of a good thing, I think.

Anyway, since Monday I have been sans-alcohol and I already feel a difference in well-being. My sleep has been better and as many of us can relate to, this is a biggie. I also am feeling more energy and an just overall better feeling.

The Smoothie: It’s a blueberry, pear, @eatfatso Carmel Peanut Butter, Soymilk Smoothie

Yes, it is because it’s all about setting boundaries. ✋🏻

Many of us are accustomed to putting the needs of others ahead of our own to the point where we become totally depleted. We are the selfless caretakers, the consummate professionals, the loyal friend, partner, sibling or child, on and on. It is so natural for us to do, to give, to be everything for everyone.

There’s usually a personal cost to this. Maybe, you feel depleted, you don’t feel respected, you feel so tired, you don’t even know who you are anymore, you just feel taken forgranted. You are giving more than you are getting back.

OR, what about when someone says something that makes you uncomfortable? What about when they say they will do something yet consistently don’t show up? What about when they speak mistruths or break your confidence?

I’ve learned to say it: NO. No thank you. No, I don’t think so. No, I am not interested. No, I don’t like that. NO.

NO, because I deserve better. NO, because I want to feel good. NO, because I want to be happy. NO, because boundaries are healthy. NO, because I know my worth.

You know what?! The more I say it, the better I get at it. How about you? Have you mastered this?

2️⃣0️⃣2️⃣1️⃣, I am excited to see what you have in store!! 🦋

I used the last few days to do a bit of reflecting on 2020 and how I felt about this New Year. I did a bit of a reckoning and decided that 2021 was going to be a year of transformation, led by passion and purpose.

Turning inward, what I noticed is that the weight of last year has lifted for me. Somewhere during the holiday season, I felt a shift. I’m still exploring this.

I don’t know exactly where I’m going but I feel like I am stepping out of my cocoon. I took a lot of micro-steps last year, benefiting from the circumstances which kept me quite sheltered. As we all did, I experienced life as simple and quiet where being overscheduled was not an option and it was all about the basics. I learned that I like this but I missed my friends and celebrating life and love.

Right now, the only map that I have tells me to follow the path as long as it feels good. If there is a negative charge, then I need to stop and choose again until it feels good. This means that I am going to really have to pay attention to what my heart is saying but if I can do this, I will end up where I need to be. My fellow travellers will be like-minded or they will be disinvited.

How about you? Have you thought about where you are on this mid-life journey? Did last year bring some clarity to you?

Two more sleeps!!! 🎄

How are you feeling this Christmas? ✨

I am feeling content. Unlike last year when I felt like I’d been hit by a Mack truck. What I can say is what a difference a year can make. I don’t feel like I’m where I want to be but I am where I need to be. 🦋🙏

I am thinking about those who are hurting for whatever reason. My heart is with you. My advice would be to be where you are, feel what you’re feeling and let it move through you. Reach out to others to support you and do all the self-care that you can. Have faith that things will get better, a lot better. 🙏

For the rest of us, think about the people who are in your world, even here on IG. Reach out, even to just say hi! I can tell you that it makes a world of difference. For many of us, we cannot gather so that can add to the seasonal loneliness. Again, reach out.

Let’s bring out the true spirit of Christmas. 🤗
