Inspired From The Inside

FUSION 2013 - Blessings & a BIG life lesson

Saturday afternoon, (September 14th 2013) as I walked into the Moncton Casino for a sound check for Matt LeBlanc's FUSION show that was to be held that night, it struck me as to what can be achieved when a person dreams big and then believes.

I remember having doubts when Matt first shared his vision for the evening with me. But the words Matt told me that day have stayed with me... "Do your part (the story) and let me worry about the rest"

This has resulted in a really big life lesson for me...

If we all do our part and let others worry about theirs (in what ever it is we're a part of)... Imagine how much easier it all becomes...

It's when we fuse all of those individual parts together that we witness the powerful magic of teamwork...

I feel blessed to have been a part of the team that has helped bring this big vision to life.

FUSION 2013 has brought many blessings into my life... 

b2ap3_thumbnail_Remi--Robyn-aka-Aliyah.jpgFIRST: I got to witness one of my stories come to life on stage with the help of an incredible cast of performers and dancers... especially Robyn Esson who played the part of Aliyah - the single drop of water. It's impossible for me to describe the feeling of seeing the story unfold live on stage...

SECOND: I got to have one of my original songs become the backdrop for an incredible original choreography... not to mention that I also got to play that song live on stage as the dance was performed.

THIRD: Perhaps the most important blessing/lesson for me was the fact that I was able to detach myself from my individual contribution and not have my ego start this internal dialogue of "yeah but this was all possible because of my this and my that". Instead, I was able to take a step back and appreciate the big picture as it all unfolded in front of my eyes as I got to appreciate the fact that none of it would have been possible without each one of those individual contributions...

Just like no river could ever be without the millions of individual drops of water... none more important than the other.

I am grateful... I am excited... I am blessed...

Much love,

Remi :)

Every season has a reason

If you were to look back on your life and try to divide it into different seasons (like I talk about in my book, The Life Gardener) perhaps there have been a few of them that you're not particularly proud of. But trying to see each one from a perspective of "there had to be a good reason for this" can be the difference in you living a life of regret and you making the best of what you have.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Channing-Tatum.jpgAn example I like to use when I'm speaking in front of a group is the story of a man called, Channing Tatum. If you're a lady (or if you've been paying attention to what your lady has been talking about this past year), you'll know that Channing was the lead role in the hit movie "Magic Mike".

Why is this important?

What Is Your Art?

Change and Transitions

b2ap3_thumbnail_Dec-21-2012.jpgDecember 21st 2012 was a significant day for change.

First, it marked the official start of winter.

Second, it marked the end of an era for humankind. What this means exactly isn’t quite clear to most of us and to say that opinions about the meaning of this day are far in between is a major understatement. But still the Mayan’s have marked it as the end of something and the beginning of something new. Without going into too much details as to what I believe the change will mean, I can tell you that I predict we’ll see human beings do things we only thought to be possible in movies. And I personally believe that children are going to be the lead actors in this new reality.

ABOUT REMI

After many years in the corporate world, Remi came to the harsh realization that he wasn't being true to himself... so he decided to make big, even drastic changes in his life as he embarked on a journey towards authenticity.

ABOUT CINDY

Born and raised in Memramcook, NB, Cindy learned from a very young age the importance of life's simple pleasures that a small town can offer such as connecting with nature and the power of a friendly smile, handshake or hug.

This made her want to pursue a career as a Healer. Cindy became a Registered Massage Therapist and specialized in CranioSacral Therapy. She also became a Reiki Master/ Teacher in 2007. These modalities allowed her to help others heal themselves on the physical, mental and emotional plane but there was still a missing component, being the spiritual plane.

It was after spending 4 days in silence during a Reiki retreat that she finally came to realize that the gift of communicating with the Spiritual world was not one to be afraid of and hide, but one to be embraced an used as the missing link she had been looking for yet to help provide healing for those here on Earth.

Cindy now lives in Dieppe NB with her Son Austin and Puppy Koda. She loves public speaking, teaching and helping others re-connect with themselves to live the life they have always dreamed of and more. Communicating with loved ones and guides from above is a blessing that she looks forward to sharing with you.

Young Entrepreneur of the Year Winner(s)

On Friday October 19th, I received the prestigious Excellence Award from the Greater Moncton Chamber of Commerce (GMCC) for Young Entrepreneur of the Year. I can't even begin to explain to you how excited I was to be honoured with such an award! But I assure you that it felt really nice, after all those years of hard work, to be recognized as such in a room packed with local leaders :)

But just like any other entrepreneur, I wouldn't have been able to achieve any of the goals I had set for myself if it wasn't for the help of countless individuals. And by fear of forgetting even one name, I am not going to list them all here... except for one. 

Let's face it, when we think of entrepreneur, most of us think about someone starting a business. When we think of success, most of us tend to think about and how much money a person has. But I think it's now time we recognize that entrepreneurship is not only limited to projects that have the potential to bring in money to the "entrepreneur". And the best example of this is the person that stands by me day in and day out... the love of my life, Sandra Marquis.

A little over a year ago, Sandra and I were blessed with our first child, Zoé. I could start listing every single thing that makes Sandra an incredible partner and mother, but it would turn this blog into a book. Instead, I want to focus on one decision Sandra took that made me see her as a true entrepreneur.

Before being pregnant Sandra had a full time job. And as much as she enjoyed the people she worked with, she simply didn't enjoy her job and didn't feel challenged as much as she felt she deserved. So instead of taking the "safe" or "easier" way and go back to this job after her one year maternity leave, she instead took a leap of faith and decided to stay home and take care of Zoé and her niece. What you need to know here is that she did this knowing that we wanted to have a second child. Which meant that she would not be getting a second year of unemployment after the birth of our second child.

Today, Sandra is pregnant once more with our second child and is looking forward to spending a full year at home taking care of both of our children while daddy is out there trying to make something happen with his painting business, writing and music.

You see, entrepreneurship is moving forward with your dreams without knowing exactly "how" you'll achieve them. I didn't know how to write a book (let alone how to publish one)... but I went to work every morning taking small steps until that dream finally realized itself. Sandra is now moving forward with her dream of finding a "career" she loves... whether that'll be staying at home or starting something entirely new the future will tell. Either way, the success or failure of such a dream is not going to be determined by how much money it brings. There are far more important ways to measure success...

I wish to thank everyone who's ever been a part of my life. However, brief or long, joyful or challenging, our time together has helped me become the person I am today... and for that I am forever grateful.

In closure, I wish to dedicate this award to an amazing woman whom I feel absolutely blessed to have in my life... Sandra Marquis.

I love you babe xox

Remi :)

GMCC's Excellence Award Finalist!

This past August, I received a phone call from Natacha from the Greater Moncton Chamber of Commerce (GMCC) telling me that I had been nominated for an Excellence Award for Entrepreneur of the Year. Well, I can't even begin to tell you how grateful I was for this... (tremendously...is probably a good place to start) :)

But then in September, I received even better news when I was informed that I had made it to the final two. And that's really when it hit me... whether I win this award, or come in second, the simple fact that I got to be nominated and then make the cut to the finals tells me that I must be doing something right. 

While I still advocate living a life that is your own... a life that is inspired by the inside and not motivated by the outside... it still feels good once in a while to receive such recognition. And while I have done everything that is under my control to attempt to win this award, I will not let it affect my desire to move forward with all of my life's desires and dreams should I come second to the other Remi Boudreau in this race... a young magician who has carved himself a space in which he can live his passion and earn a living while doing it. I honestly believe that both of us are just as deserving of this award and wish him all the best with his already remarkable career...

Remi :)

Is it Black or White? (How about both!)

We have all heard the saying "There are two sides to every story" or "There are two sides to every coin".

Both talk about the same idea... two people can view the exact same coin, be part of the exact same conversation, or witness the exact same event and take away completely different experiences to share with others. But who's right?

The way we experience life is all about how we perceive it... if we are to look at a coin for instance and try to describe it to someone else, we might be trying to convince others that this coin has the face of a queen on it... while the other tries to convince everyone that we are wrong since the coin obviously has a moose on it. While both are describing the exact same coin, they failed to understand that this coin has 2 sides. Of course, this example is straight forward enough and wouldn't last too long in a debate (I hope).

But what about less obvious situations we sometimes fight over. You're wrong... I'm right! No you're wrong... I'm right! Think about any situation where such words have been spoken... now try to imagine the possibility that perhaps both are right (and wrong).

Take these black doves for instance...

But I have proof...

It seems it doesn't matter whether we are "right" or "wrong", our mind will always be able to find evidence to support our beliefs... even when those beliefs contradict themselves.

But by listening to our feelings, our body, our thoughts, our heart and our intuitions... we will be better equipment to discern what is and isn't true to us.

I had a good reason...

Every day we make countless choices, from...

  • What food to eat (or not)
  • What clothes to wear (or not)
  • Which people to interact with (or not)
  • Which words to express (or not)
  • Which feelings to share (or not).

And each one of those choices is the result of a very personal IRP (Internal Reasoning Process).

Of course, not everyone will understand (or accept) the full truth of those choices at times (including ourselves)… but somewhere inside, each one of those choices made sense to the decision maker and served a purpose.

Sure, some of our decisions are still infected by various fears of ours… but who can claim a history of decision making based solely out of love?

The important thing is not to try to understand how or why those choices were made but to instead focus on how to respond to them… and it doesn’t matter if we are talking about the choices made by others or ourselves...
