Good Morning!


As I write this edition of Monday Morning Coach, I am sitting in a cozy Chinese restaurant experiencing the worst hair day ever. I just came from my doctor’s office where I had a brain scan. In short, they filled my head with goop and attached 21 electrodes to my scalp in order to measure my brain waves. The good news is that my test went wonderfully; the bad news is that I look like a woman who has lost a wrestling match with my hair products.


I am quite proud of myself being able to sit here in this restaurant without the urge to tell everyone why I (and my crazy hair) look so silly. I keep thinking that the urge should be there, but it’s not. I really don’t care. Maybe it’s the fact that I don’t know a lot of people here, or perhaps it’s because I am over the age of 40. I guess the real truth is that I know that everyone else in this restaurant is so busy living their own fast-paced lives that they probably aren’t even noticing.


Isn’t that the way life is? We can get so wrapped up in our own little universe that we really do come to believe that our world does revolve around us? That’s the paradox. From a place of cause and effect we are indeed living and creating from the center of our own universe, but when it comes to the outer reality that we live in, so is everyone else (living from the center of their own universe, that is). Is it any wonder that at times we can feel isolated, crazed and confused?


How often have you created a story in your head (or in your life, for that matter) that you were convinced was important and then came to realize it was nothing more than a drama you created? How refreshing (and humbling) it is when you realize that things aren’t nearly as dramatic or important as you thought they were. More importantly, by shifting your focus and intention, you’ll find that you can experience a sense of sanity again. Think about it; by changing your internal dialogue or story, you can change your life. How great is that?


What internal story or dialogue are you holding onto that is time to release? What might happen if you did?


Have a drama-free week,

  Carole's Latest Book Recommendation


Kabul Beauty School: An American Goes Behind the Veil (paperback)
by Deborah Rodriquez (Author), Kristin Ohlson (Author)
In 2002, just months after the Taliban had been driven out of Afghanistan, Rodriguez, a hairdresser from Holland, MI, joined a small nongovernmental aid organization on a mission to the war-torn nation. That visit changed her life. In Kabul, she chronicles her efforts to help establish the country's first modern beauty school and training salon. The memoir offers a glimpse into a world Westerners seldom see-life behind the veil.
