Aloha, my name is Caron. In 2013, after many months (years) of dreaming about starting a business, I did it. I envisioned a platform to spread messages of hope, kindness & feel good things. Starting a “heart centered” business, like any other start-up/venture requires a huge leap of faith, passion and belief.
It is now 2021. I’ve created and sold some neat, inspiring products, I’ve hosted many events (collaborative retreats, Laughter sessions, motivational speaking opportunities, dance parties, fundraisers), I’ve kept the passion but sometimes let things slide a bit with this vision of mine. It’s time to regroup, refocus and “make some noise”.
Below is the exact wording I used in describing my view of the world & life in 2013:
These are both exciting and challenging times in not only our own lives but in the world. It is very easy to be distracted by the negativity and chaos that is surrounding us, and a lot of times “within” us. Yikes. But we can make a choice to experience our lives differently. We have that power, we have that “super-power”, we have that “magical super-power” (put on your red cape at this point) and here is the best part……it’s free. We can make the choice to live our lives, as much as possible with optimism and gratitude. When we do that, hope appears. Kindness shines. Love flows. Possibility knocks. Goodness shows. And Happiness rocks!!!
You matter my friend and you absolutely make a difference. Being “incredibly you” means there are special gifts that only you have to offer the world. So in case you don’t hear it enough, that’s how totally awesome you are! I want to help you realize that. I want you to know that. I want you to care for and love yourself. I want you to share your “goodness” with the world. Because that’s when awesome things happen….for everyone.
We are each made up of hundreds of others who have crossed our path and affected us with their actions and words. What sort of “human footprint” are you leaving on others? Together, let’s encourage action and create positive change. Let’s impact lives (including our own) and heal the world with hope, peace, kindness, love, laughter, happiness and possibility. Start small, start big, just start from where you are and start today. What you do will have a positive effect on someone else’s life – guaranteed. That’s something worth celebrating!
Sigh……and now it is 2021. “Challenging times in the world”indeed. I think we all will agree on that. “It is very easy to be distracted by the negativity and chaos that is surrounding us, and a lot of times “within” us. Yikes. But we can make a choice to experience our lives differently”. When I look back and having written those words 9 years ago, I feel that they are more pertinent today more than ever. There is still a choice we can make, and it’s free, and it’s powerful beyond anything we can imagine. “We can make the choice to live our lives, as much as possible with optimism and gratitude. When we do that, hope appears. Kindness shines. Love flows. Possibility knocks. Goodness shows.”
One of my first projects I started in 2013 was the development of the C.A.R.E. concept. I love what the word CARE represents and I was easily able to create an acronym for C.A.R.E. (Celebrate, Appreciate, Respect, Encourage). Within each of these categories, I identified a few associated “actions” or ways for people to experience them. The list can be found by clicking here. The list is never ending of course, but it’s a good start!
My first product back in 2013 was the roll out of the C.A.R.E. Cards I designed. I developed the C.A.R.E. Cards as a tool to revive faith in humanity. They are a great way to “notice” another person, to let them know they are “seen”, to acknowledge another person. Many, many people just want to know that they are seen – I want us to slow down and actually “see” other people. I firmly believe that there will be a noticeable ripple effect from using these cards. The bonus is that the result or effect will be equally experienced whether you give or receive a C.A.R.E. card (win win). I have given these cards a bit of a “refreshing” but the concept remains the same, just notice someone and be a good person!

Sincere thanks for being an amazing part of a movement to "notice people".
