Happy New Year 2014 Oakville Mississauga Burlington


Happy New Year!

Yes, I know I’m a couple days late, but better late than never right? Don’t good things come to those that wait? Right? Or at least so the saying goes.

Wrong!! The saying is crap (if you’ll allow the verbage ;) - All you get by waiting around for good things to happen is older…

So I guess I’m writing this as a prelude to this new year to set a personal tone for 2014. If there’s one thing I am finally learning it is just that. If you want good things to happen you need to get up and make things happen. If you wait around for good things to happen you are not only not making them happen, you are wasting the most valuable resource we have – time.  Time with people that make you happy, time with those you love, time with your kids and time for yourself. So if you want to kick ass this year, you need to get up and go and kick some ass at whatever empowers you and makes you happy and don’t take no for an answer.

If you want to spend more quality time with your kids – do it.  You can’t get that time back – enjoy every second of it. If you want to lose weight or get fitter – stop eating the crap and do it – get moving and keep moving. If you want to better yourself – invest in time for yourself and approach every day like a fresh start and a chance to be better.

So take that list of resolutions you wrote a couple days ago – and throw it out… Ok, recycle it please ;) Now, take a new piece of paper (or enter it in your phone or whatever works for you) and title it GOALS for 2014. Write them out, say them out loud and go make them happen! Kick Ass and don’t take no for an answer.

Cheers for 2014,

Panera Bread Oakville - Dorval CrossingPanera Bread is opening soon at Dorval Crossing in Oakville…



Panera Bread opening soon at dorval crossing oakville

Building off the success of the first Oakville Panera Bread location, they are expanding and opening a more central Panera Bread location in Oakville at Dorval Crossing just off the QEW at Dorval Drive.

This new Panera Bread will be located at Dorval Crossing East – 220 North Service Road, Oakville – where the Sharkey’s World Cafe used to be if I’m not mistaken.

The new Oakville Panera Bread location is under renovation now and will be opening very soon although I have not yet come across an opening date for this new Panera Bread location here in Oakville. If you get a scoop on it, drop me a line and I’ll spread the word.
