COUNTDOWN: 60 Days to 60

Today is Sunday June 18, 2017 and it is the 53 day until my 60th Birthday.

Wow the days are passing away quickly as it has been one week since I decided to do the countdown.

Mmm, let me see: things that I have learned along the way.


Learn new things everyday ….. will keep you healthy in body, mind and soul.

Be forgiving ….. less stressful.


Incorporate variety into your life in every aspect.

Be kind to yourself ….. perhaps the biggest lesson to learn and the most important.

Surround yourself with people …… we all need each other’s energy to exist.

Do more of what makes you feel fantastic.

Listen to music.

Dance to your own beat …. do not be afraid to do things your way …… it is okay to be different.

Be grateful for everything you have in your life.

Be kind to others.

Meditate …. even if it is only a few minutes each day.

Listen more …. speak less.  ( I find this one difficult but I have worked on it my whole life).

Be yourself as there is no one else like you on the planet.


Always, Carol




Thought for the day….

Welcome to Thursday morning and today is April the 26th, 2012

My thought for this gorgeous Thursday morning and that is:


I have been thinking that perhaps if I keep that thought buzzing around my head that I will keep more aware and in the moment.

There are times where the outside world seems to get under your “moment”.

So this is my way to help me stay where I want to be …. in a constant state of gratitude.

I love that line.

I am in a constant state of gratitude.

Repeat it often and keep it in your mind and soul…

Have a great day.

Special Hello: to all those souls who are in a constant state of gratitude and to the rest who are trying.


Always, Carol and Alvin
