Remember: Life is Good

•  •  •
Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”
- Eckhart Tolle -

With the start of Fall comes the opportunity to settle into new routines. As a former teacher, it’s always somehow satisfying to get back to the scheduled activities and commitments that September brings. For most of us, vacation time is over and we can use this season to refocus and get organized once again. TimeSquared would love to help out as you adjust to your busy life – grocery shopping, errand running, decluttering, car servicing, coordinating trades – whatever you need done to simplify your hectic schedule.

But amidst the busy-ness, the one thing that we must remember to take with us into the Fall is our sense of gratitude for everything the year has brought us so far. Whether the Summer brought us travel & adventure, new experiences, life changes, time with family and friends, or moments of perfect relaxation, we can all find something to be grateful for.

And as we head toward Thanksgiving, what could be more fitting than taking a moment to apply Eckhart Tolle’s wisdom and reflect on the abundance we all enjoy?

Happy September!




Bring a refreshing dinner to the table with this new take on a delicious salmon and salsa recipe. It’s colourful, impressive and surprisingly quick & easy.

Chili Cornmeal Crusted Salmon with Avocado Salsa

For the Salsa:

2 avocadoes, scooped and diced
2 green onions, sliced
1 pint (500 mL) cherry tomatoes, halved
1 big handful of chopped fresh cilantro (or parsley, if you prefer)
Zest and juice of 2 limes
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon of your favourite hot sauce
¼ teaspoon toasted sesame oil

For the Salmon:

¼ cup fine yellow cornmeal
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablepoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
4 to 6 fresh skinless salmon fillets (5 to 6 ounces / 140 to 170 g each)

Preheat oven to 425˚F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly oil paper.
Make the salsa first. In a medium bowl, combine all salsa ingredients. Toss and stir, evenly distributing flavours. Set aside.
Move on to the salmon. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, chili powder, brown sugar and salt. Dredge the salmon through the crunchy coating, evenly and thoroughly coating each piece, shaking excess back into dish. Position on baking sheet and bake until cooked through, tender and juicy, about 10 minutes.
Scoop a generous mound of salsa onto each plate. Top with a piece of crispy crusty salmon and a sprig of cilantro, if desired.
Serve and share!

Serves 4 to 6.
