Good Morning!

I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you basked in the abundance of blessings that surrounded you.

As we enter into the holiday season it is my wish that you stay connected to your thoughts of appreciation and gratitude and that you remember what matters most to you during this special time of year.

In supporting you in staying true to yourself and your intentions, below is a copy of my Top Ten Ways to Create a Peaceful and Purposeful Holiday Season. Also, below, you'll see a link to a great book I have been enjoying titled, "Unplug the Christmas Machine: A Complete Guide to Putting Love and Joy into the Season." It is filled with insights and tips to help you have a joyous and memorable holiday season.

Wishing you an Abundant week!

Quote of the Week

Quote of the Week: "The biggest temptation is to settle for too little."
-- Thomas Merton

Question:  In what areas of your life are you settling for too little?  What do you think might happen if you opened yourself to receiving more?

Affirmation: "I am open to receiving all of life's abundance.  The more I receive, the more I can give."

Read the Newest Article written by Coach Carole...

 Webster's Dictionary offers several definitions of the word "holiday:" 

1.     Holy Day

2.     A day on which one is exempt from work

3.     A period of relaxation


Here is a Top Ten List that I hope will help you to have a restful and happy holiday that reflects the true meaning of this joyous season.




1.     Recall What You Learned Last Year. Unless you do things differently, your results won't be different.


2.     Make Your List and Check it Twice. Take the time (today) to make your lists and start planning time in your schedule for the things that need to be done.  Make sure to leave some time for yourself.


3.     Keep it Simple. Remember that the true meaning of the holidays is to be among the people that you love. 


4.     Stay Out of The Malls. Do your holiday shopping online or through catalogs.  You can even have your gifts gift-wrapped and mailed for you- - one less thing for you to have to do!


5.     Ask For Help.  If entertaining, ask your guests to bring a dish to share.  Get your family to help with the shopping, wrapping, etc.  Hire a cleaning service, a handy-man.  You get the idea.


6.     Implement a Budget. There's no sense in starting the New Year off with a chunk of debt.  (See #1,3,4)


7.     Try Something Different. Why not start a new holiday tradition like adopting a family in need, making donations to charities in lieu of gifts, or helping out at a local food bank?


8.     When Feeling Stressed, Breathe.  If you find the holiday activities getting the best of you, take a deep breathe and pull yourself into a place of gratitude.  After all, isn't this what the holidays are all about?


9.     Just Say No. If there is something that you are not feeling up to doing, don't do it.  Remember, soon you will have a whole new year awaiting you—perhaps there are some things that can wait.


10. Set Your Intention. What kind of holiday experience you have is entirely up to you.  Get clear about your intentions, embrace your ability to make choices, and create the best holiday season ever!
