I'm pinching myself today.
And eating Birthday Cake!
No other country in the world is as liberated, progressive, or offers as much opportunity as Canada. I've always admired my parents for uprooting their lives to emigrate from England to the 'Great White North'. Like many new Canadians then - and today - they did it for the possibility of a better life for themselves, and the future of their children.
As a first generation Canadian, I am grateful my education, health and welfare have been a right and not a privilege. Having these benefits from birth have allowed me to evolve towards my highest purpose and greatest good. Where else can that happen so inclusively?
I wish that to be the legacy for everyone in this country, especially respect and reconciliation for our First Nations People.
Happy Canada Day! Since Confederation, our country is 151 years old!
I - and the houseporn team - are proud and grateful to be Canadian. #truthnorthstrongandfree
