Thought for the day…..

Well here we are, and welcome to Monday, February 13th, 2012.

I hope that you all had an amazing weekend.

I had a great weekend.

Friday night off (from BBW), and then I worked the Fragrance Event (launch of Pink Chiffon) on Saturday, and then yesterday afternoon.

The new fragrance is absolutely lovely….(All sorts of lovely fruits in the top notes like peach and pear. Apple blossom and jasmine in the mid notes followed by  chiffon musk, creamy coconut and sandalwood (to name a few) in the dry notes).

In between I did laundry, bit of house cleaning, had coffee with “G” and also with Amanda AND,  gave Mr. Alvin a much deserved and needed bath.

Such sad news about the passing of Whitney Houston.  She will be missed.  I was listening to some of the special programming about her last night and she did have an amazing voice.

One of my all time favourite songs was sung by Whitney and written by Dolly Parton.  “I will always love you” …… such a beautiful song (words and melody).

I pray that her daughter Bobby Christina will always be surrounded by love and great memories of her Mom.

Make sure that you always leave friends and loved ones on a good note ….. saying “I love you” ….. in fact, we should always leave everyone we meet each day on good terms.

Always on a positive note.

I hope that you all have a great day …. take care …..

Special Hello to:  I would ask you on this day to take the time to say Hello to people.  A simple hello and smile could mean the world to someone who might be feeling alone or troubled.

Always, Carol and Alvin ….

Thought for the day……

Welcome to Tuesday, December 13th, 2011 …. here we are at eleven sleeps till Christmas Eve …….oh my gosh (OMG).

I hope as 2011 winds down….. that when you reflect on this year ….you will have more great memories than not.

This has been perhaps in many ways one that I would not quickly wish to repeat;  but then on the other hand ….. it has been amazing.

I have been on a journey, actually I would call it climbing my mountain ….. I am reaching the top ….. and ready to scream at the top of my lungs….. I DID IT …. I CAN ALWAYS DO IT …..

I have learned so much.

Anyone out there that is over the age of 50 (actually I am closer to 55) or anyone that has to make bold changes in their lives …..

Just do it ….. do not think for even one minute that you are not “able” to make changes …..

Besides that is what life is all about …… changes……. if not for change, life would be pretty stagnant, boring really.

So those are my thoughts for this Tuesday …… if you are finding yourself climbing the mountain and feeling like you are getting no where ….

Just remember “Carol” …… my journey has taken me here …… I have paused at the bottom …. considered the climb …. not knowing how to do it….. but knowing that I must ….. then taking that first step …… each day taking a few more …. until now where I am high in the sky, and almost at the top….. ready to celebrate …… I DID IT.  But also remembering those steps along the way …. and celebrating each of those because without them,  I would not have made it to the top.

Have a great Tuesday everyone …..

Special Hello to:  Everyone that is climbing their mountains ….. Congratulations…..

Always, Carol
