Don’t Take Life Too Seriously


Dear Folks,

I missed you guys!

I hope this finds you full of enthusiasm for a change of season no matter where you are in the world.

It’s so easy to get bogged down in our lives, to feel like the weight of the world is on our shoulders with so many responsibilities, work, children, deadlines, mortgages, bills, and a million other things.

If you are reading this and you feel a bit blah because you are in overwhelm for the long list of things you ‘should’ do, this is a little invitation from me to think about life differently.

What if you had a little more fun, built a little more lightness into your life, added a whole lot more love, dinners out and tango lessons!

Instead of focusing on the never-ending list of things to tick off, what would happen if you put on Jon Bon Jovi and did the accounts and in between got up and did some air guitar? You may feel ridiculous and laugh but that is the point!

What if instead of taking the kids to another lesson you guys went to the beach and lied in the sun and laughed and ate ice-cream?

Imagine instead of going to a job (photography included) with a feeling of anxiety, instead, you said to yourself ‘this is going to be fun’… and it was.

Here’s the good news, we can make every day any way we want it to be. We can get pissed off, focus on the negative, dial down into the details or have a different experience. It’s our choice.

If you feel life somehow life got too serious, remember the reason we are here is joy. It’s that simple. When you are joyful, you are fully in your true spirit and when you are truly you that is when the magic happens.

So build a little joy into your daily life and get the big guy upstairs to fast-track your dreams.

Remember, don’t take life too seriously…

Love and light,

Carla x
