Good Morning!


Have you forgotten how to have fun? Have you misplaced your sense of humor as you seriously plod forward in your day to day activities?


Twice in the past week, I have been reminded of the importance of experiencing pleasure and fun and am beginning to realize that fun is as much about one's attitude as it is about one's activities.


Years ago, when I created The Ten Principles of Attraction, I deemed principle Number 7 to "Be Childlike and Playful." I used to joke that I spent the first 30 years of my life being serious and I was going to make up for it by devoting the rest of my life to pleasure and playfulness.


I wish I could say that I am doing a stellar job of being light and childlike, but that would not be the truth. The truth is I have been focusing so much on problem solving and other "serious stuff" that I've all but disowned my playful, joyous self. Well, that's about to change.


Right here, right now I am declaring my intention to let out my inner child (don't you just love that term?) and let her play! I am going to watch movies and read books that make me laugh. I'm going to dance wildly with my daughter and I'm going to get out my crayons and color outside the lines.


I enjoy helping people with their problems, but frankly what the world needs more of is people sharing joy and laughter and happiness and in turn leading the way for others to do the same. Perhaps perfection is a balance of the two (and the wisdom to intuit whether problem solving or giggling is the best medicine in that moment).


As we approach Thanksgiving, what better way to make room in your life for thankfulness than by putting a bounce in your step and a little lightness in your heart?


Have you been a little too serious lately for your own good? What could you do this week to lighten up a bit? What might happen if you did?


Have a playful week,



Quote of the Week

Quote of the Week:  "Dance as if no one were watching. Sing as if no one were listening. And live each day as if it were your last."
- Irish Proverb


Question:  If this week were your last, what would you do differently? Are you willing to take some chances and see what amazing things might happen?


Affirmation:  "I gladly live today as if it were my last. In doing so, I live joyfully in the present moment and bask in today's wonder."

What People are Saying about Coach Carole

"Carole's topic on wearing masks was truly interesting. I recently talked at a spiritual retreat that was called, "Knowing God through Knowing Yourself," and a big part of the talk had to do with wearing masks. I shared my own spiritual journey and all the masks I've used throughout my life and how I've been able to remove them (somewhat) as I become closer to God. Thank you, Carole for your wisdom and insight."
 - Elena Suarez, Entrepreneur, Pinecrest, FL
