Rise and SHINE

Welcome to 2022!


Did you create resolutions? I’m not a big resolution creator as I don’t know that I’ve ever gone the entire year to accomplish them. I like to think about what I would like to experience in the upcoming months of my life. How do I want to experience my relationships with family, friends, colleagues, and romance? How do I want to experience my overall health, home environment, and the work that I am so passionate about?


I also pick a word or a short phrase to guide me through the year. This year it is joyful adventure. Joyful adventure in all aspects of my life and what that might look like, feel like, and what that might be like.


With my chosen word and my ideas of what I’d like to experience, I ask myself how I want to rise to greet today. How will my thoughts, words, and actions draw me closer to what I want to experience this year?


Moving forward into 2022, I encourage you to:


Get clear on what you want to experience this year. If you haven’t taken the time yet, do it today. I may not experience everything I am looking forward to, but by knowing what I do want to experience, I am more focused on creating it.


Ask yourself if your current thoughts, words, and actions are taking you closer to those experiences, or are they holding you back from experiencing them. If you want more LOVE in your life, are you being LOVING in your thoughts, words, and actions? It isn’t about beating yourself up when you are focused on what you don’t want in your life; it’s about letting that be a reminder to return your focus to what you do want.


Coach Carol reminder – Always and never are not part of my vocabulary.

I work on how I want to show up the majority of the time.

Fear, frustration, unworthiness visit me,

I don’t allow them to move in.


Give attention AND intention to your life’s desires. The life you are yearning to live is yearning for you too. Come up with some small ‘inspired’ action steps to bring you closer to how you want your life to be; how you deserve your life to be. Do something today! It can be a small or a massive step forward; you get to decide, but do inspire action today.


Mostly, I invite you to rise each day knowing that you deserve to live a life of joyful adventure. Pay attention to your thoughts, words, and actions, and adjust accordingly. I LOVE helping people live their best life, so check out my coaching options, to see how I can support you in your dreams.


Until next time, rise and shine your bright self!


I choose to rise up in LOVE, kindness, compassion, and peace.
