Celebrating moments that turn into awesomeness….

Some moments turn out way more awesome than we can imagine.

 

Fun things are fun!  Laughter is contagious!!  No permission needed for whimsy!!!  Some moments turn into unexpected awesomeness.  This was one of those times……

 

Laughter, fun and whimsy connect us as human beings, keep us YOUNG, release stress, build relationships and create all sorts of wonderful magic in our lives. 

 

I was recently visiting my mom and grandma before a speaking event in Saskatchewan.  Mom and I try our best to meet at grandmas as often as we can (we all live in different communities).  Our get-togethers most often involve catching up, sharing in meals, a few interesting games of rummy (guess who wins most often?), a lot of laughs, a little bit of mischief, some naptime and simply sharing in our time together.

 

I decided we should all sport “a good life” shirt a get a 3 generation picture.  What happened next is something I can’t explain exactly.  You can see from the progression of pictures that it was an absolute explosion of uncontrollable laughter between my mom and grandma.  I decided to capture a few pictures of them in action before sneaking in behind them to get in on the fun!!  Thanks to my aunt Renee who was visiting for taking the group photos.  It certainly took a while for us to be able to compose ourselves and say “cheese”!

This was one of those moments that we will all remember for a long, long time.  Laughing until we cry, feeling the joy, celebrating being together and simply living “a good life”.

 

Celebrate on my friends,

Caron

 

Woooohoooo!  My 1st launch of “A Good Life” shirts are sold out!!  Thank you to everyone who purchased one.  The 2nd edition (new design and sizes) will be available very soon.  You can sign up to be on my email list on my website (www.goodandkindcompany.com) to receive updates on products and other fun stuff!

“To do” today! Anyone wanna join me?

I try my best everyday to do my “to do” list (this is a real tongue twister)!  There are a few daily practices that have turned into wonderful habits when I wrote them down and became consciously aware of taking action on them.  The awesome part is how transforming this has been for my life.  So much so that I have to share this powerful stuff with YOU.

 

I have a standard “to do” list and I add other interesting and fun stuff to it as necessary (such as get groceries, shovel snow, pay bills, get a tooth pulled, etc).  I admit, I’m a list person.  It works for me and I know, the more we use lists the more we depend on them but it’s just the way I roll.

The items that are part of my daily ritual “to do” include:

  • Wake up, get up, show up
  • Do some “good” (for myself, for others, for the world)
  • Be kind (to myself and others)
  • Practice gratitude
  • Choose happiness
  • Oh, and the occasional cartwheel, spontaneous dance or “joy jumpin” move!

 

 

I hope that you are incorporating these life-changing practices into your daily life.  Write them down, say them, choose them, live them, believe them……let this be the way we all rock and roll!  Every single one of us has different stories, challenges, dreams and goals.  We all have “off” days and “on” days.  Every. single. one. of. us.  And that’s okay.  Try your best to do whatever you can in your current situation.  I’m sure that you will find your life positively impacted as these become habits; not to mention the positive impact you will make on the lives of others.  Oh, and here’s an added bonus, these “to do woooo hoooo hoooos” are FREE (I bet you wanna join me now)!

 

So get out there and shine your fanflippintastic awesomeness in a world that needs you more than ever.

 

To choices and positive change,

Caron

PS – I celebrate YOU!

 

 

You can choose this!

Consider how awesome it is that at any moment, we can choose our thoughts, our words, our actions, our reactions, our attitudes, our opinions.  Do feelings, emotions and beliefs affect these choices?  Absolutely!  Don’t deny what you are feeling – EVER.  Suppressed feelings will eventually come out one way or another – and not usually how we want (or expect).

Learning to have awareness, to recognize how we are feeling is a huge step in being able to better manage our personal situations.  It provides us with an opportunity to step back, reflect, make a choice and take action, whether that action is to change something or not.

 

 

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

-Wayne Dyer

 

We all have stories; we all face challenges and triumphs; we all experience our own version of sadness, joy, fear and happiness; we all need to be celebrated, appreciated, respected and encouraged.  Although we are each on our separate paths, we are really together in the journey.  Let’s do our best to make it wonder(full) for ourselves and each other.

 

To choices of love and peace,

Caron
