When was the last time you wrote a love letter… to YOURSELF?

Whether you subscribe to Valentine’s Day or not, at this time of year, you can’t help but feel the love! 

And even if you didn’t get any loves notes from any secret admirers this year, it doesn’t mean you’re not deserving of being reminded of how special you are. 

Plus, we don’t need to wait to be told my someone else!

In fact, it’s even more meaningful if it comes from the one person who knows you the best… YOURSELF.

When was the last time you wrote yourself a love letter?

Watch this week’s video to learn why it’s so meaningful, as well as the different ways you can take it on. 

So, go grab some fancy stationary (although even a plain piece of paper or a napkin does the trick just as well!) and start waxing poetic about yourself, to yourself. 

I bet you’ll hear exactly what it is you need to hear right now. 

And then I want to hear about it!

Let’s keep the conversation going… please share your comments over at the blog or on my YouTube channel.

And share this video with someone you think could benefit from a little extra self-love, too. 

It comes down to just one thing…

And just like that, it’s FEBRUARY!


First of all, a big THANK YOU to all those who completed the survey! SO much appreciated… and we’re going to be making some tweaks to Happy Friday as a result of your valuable feedback VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!

I hope you’re still sticking to your new year’s resolutions and goals and intentions?!? Or if you’re like me, maybe you’ve just recently jumped back on the bandwagon!

As I spoke about last week, no judgment! Shake it off, and jump back on. 

However, maybe you’re also not setting yourself up for your greatest success!

Maybe you’re trying to take on one too many things?!?

Shiny object syndrome is REAL.

Distractions and noise ARE EVERYWHERE.

Single-tasking is the new black. 

And if you want to live to your fullest potential this year, achieve what you set out to achieve, it comes down to JUST ONE THING. 

Watch this week’s video to learn what this ONE thing is!

Are you ready to take this on this week? 

I want to hear from you… 

What is that ONE THING you are going to choose to focus on? 

Share and let’s help hold each other accountable!

And then please share this video with someone you think could benefit. 

Have a FAB week,   Carol

The ONLY question you need to ask yourself.

Is all you’re doing right now, all you have going on in your life – making you happy?

In her brilliant book ‘The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up,‘ Marie Kondo shares the single most important question to ask when de-cluttering your space (and your life!) is this one: DOES IT BRING YOU JOY?’ 

Simple, yet POWERFUL.

And I think we can use this very same idea when looking at all  we want to create in our lives – this year and beyond! Continue reading “The ONLY question you need to ask yourself.”

How to Achieve ALL Your Dreams in 2018


“New Year, New YOU!”

“Let’s make this your BEST YEAR YET!”

“Achieve ALL your dreams in 2018!”

No doubt you are bombarded with messages like these at this time of year. (and my apologies, as that last one came from ME!)

While it makes sense – as we have a blank slate, a fresh page in front of us – it can also be pretty overwhelming!

And even though I love setting goals and making resolutions, I don’t always stick to them, and there is a scary stat that states 90% of people who set resolutions fall off the bandwagon by February. EEK! Continue reading “How to Achieve ALL Your Dreams in 2018”

The ONLY Message You’ll Ever Need to Hear.

MY WEEK IN PICS: Connecting with friends (and making new ones!) and learning a ton at the CAPS (Canadian Ass. of Professional Speakers) Annual Convention… and honoured to sit on a panel following a talk with the amazing Elizabeth Nyamayaro, Executive Director for UN Women, and the founder of HeForShe movement; Christmas lunching with friends…

There are some pretty important messages out there, however there is only ONE big message you’ll really ever need to hear. 

It may sound like a pretty bold statement, and it’s true.  Continue reading “The ONLY Message You’ll Ever Need to Hear.”

It’s not about buying presents, it’s about being present…

My week in pics: Family wedding, catching up with girlfriends and amazing members of the women living big – Tribe community, attending the CAPS Christmas party, and taking in the magic of this time of year… 

Happy Friday!

If you’re anything like me, you love this time of year. However as exciting as the hustle and the bustle and the lights and the Christmas Carols can be, it can also be a tad stressful!

This week I’m keeping it short and sweet, simply wanting to share some important reminders as to what this time of year is really about.  Continue reading “It’s not about buying presents, it’s about being present…”

Wanna Learn the 3 Pillars of Happiness?

My week in pics: Seeing monkeys and sloths at the famous Manuel Antonio National Park, sneaking in some beach time in Costa Rica, and saying goodbye to all of my Remote Year adventures and coming HOME!

Happy Friday!

(And happy 1st day of Advent!)

And greetings from where I’m back on Canadian soil, in home surf, and in cold weather!

It’s been a bit of an adjustment these past few days I’ve been home, however I must say it also feels good to be back. 

Although it’s been so fun to experience adventures all over the world, ultimately, I’m realizing happiness doesn’t necessarily come from the epic moments in life.  Continue reading “Wanna Learn the 3 Pillars of Happiness?”
