About

Kevin BulmerHey. I’m Kevin. Thanks for visiting.

I used to have a bunch of blah, blah, blah on this page that was here more because I thought it was what people might expect as opposed to it being the way I might actually talk to someone.

If you’re looking for my resume, labels, titles or list of accomplishments (aka, “blah, blah, blah”), please go ahead and visit my Linkedin profile.

If you want to know who I really am, here’s a little of what’s real about me:

The No Schedule Man … 

I have two sons, Eddie & Jaden. They are my heroes, most trusted advisors and first priority. Always.

I adore my family. I am a 100% Mama’s Boy and I still want to be like my Dad when (if) I grow up. I have two sisters who are each incredible, strong women. One lives in Newfoundland and the other in the Northwest Territories, which I think is very cool.

My creative heroes are Walt Disney & Jimmy Buffett. Nobody understood what those guys were doing. They still don’t.

I am passionate about the music that lights me up and my favourite band will forever be a group called Extreme. I am irrationally attached to them and their music. I sometimes wonder if I have a subconscious commitment to be as widely misunderstood as they are.

I don’t care about sports the way I used to, but I grew up listening to Ernie Harwell broadcasting Detroit Tiger games on 760 WJR, so I will always keep a loving eye on them. I also follow the scores of the Toronto Maple Leafs & Miami Heat.

Movies? I love the Back to the Future films. Other favourites include Rocky Balboa & Field of Dreams.

I don’t really watch TV unless its a Leafs hockey game with Jaden.

I love to read. I usually have a couple of books going at a time (one in the morning and one at night) and enjoy listening to audio books or podcasts if I’m making a meal or doing laundry or mowing the lawn. I actually do this to a fault.

If I had to choose a last meal, it’d probably be a cheeseburger of some sort. Although, my sweet Caroline makes a lasagna that is very difficult for me to stop eating once I start.

I’m totally into all kinds of things I used to think were stupid. Some examples: meditation, yoga, affirmations, mindfulness, goal-setting … and drinking ridiculous amounts of water every day.

I have two middle names: William and Stewart. They are grandfathers’ names and I’m proud to have them.

Things I still have sentimental attachments to, since I was a little kid: Mr. T, Kermit the Frog (I used to call him “Kurt the Throg”), Han Solo, Bugs Bunny, Popeye and the Millennium Falcon.

I don’t have a favourite colour or number and I don’t think I’m superstitious.

The book “Conscious Living” by Gay Hendricks changed my life.

“Ask and It Is Given” by Abraham, Jerry & Esther Hicks changed it again.

Okay, I lied. I like black (does that count as a colour? Okay … blue is second).

I have Superman logos all over the house. It started when I decided the “S” stood for sober, and that helped me quit drinking for good back in June of 2015.

What else? Gee, I don’t know. Who’d still be reading this?

    Kevin… You’re a very special person.

    A true inspiration!

    I love reading these kinds of stories.

    We are all students of the universe and always will be.

    Thanks

      All the best,

    I think, Kevin, you are rather inspirational, if you ask me. And you couldn’t have nailed it better: life is all but a straight line, and no matter how hard we try to do the right thing by anyone, there’s a point where dissatisfaction kicks in. I don’t think I have expectations of people, yet it is when people let me down that depression takes over, and that leads regularly to then me questioning whether it is my fault and whether I should have handled things and people differently. Surely you must have darker days as well- so how do you manage such positivity? How can you live with no schedule???
    Thank you Kevin!!

    • Hi Giulia!
      Thank you for your very kind words. I’m really grateful. Thanks for visiting.
      Yes, I have down days, absolutely. But I look at them much differently than I used to.
      No schedule? Oh, I have a schedule, but I also know that life isn’t linear. Sometimes you have to let go and let the tides take you where they will. Remember – no plan is all part of the plan 🙂
      Best wishes,
      Kevin
