Hello and welcome! This is a blog that has my Youtube Midweek Chat Video talking about those who go to the extreme to try out do others.
I never treat life like it is a competition but there are those that do and will do anything to get on camera, and try and score points and I have created a Life Coaching video talking about this too, and will be added soon. At the end of the day, your work should be original but don’t do it to win points over someone but that you enjoy what you do. There is someone I know who thought the Virgina Monalogues was someone showing their virgina but it is not, and decided to make a video about their private area, and wants to do the Virgina Monalogues not realising what it is really is about. It in fact is about a womans struggles through the teenage years of puberty and discovering sex.
I am going to do this video each week and on Wednesdays and a Weekend Chat too on various topics. So I hope you enjoy this video and please let me know what you think of those who try to out do someone and have a story I would love to hear from you. You can comment below.
All my blogposts will be on my Pinterest site and my blognetwork, aswell as Facebook and Twitter:
So in this post I am talking about Extreme Youtubing, and the extent that People will go to, to create content and I came across a video about How to put on your Video and Skype Call face on. This is after a I did a video about not exploiting or trying to out do someone and showing your body to the world and people getting the wrong idea of things.
Please watch this video:
Most of the time when we are video or skype calling in our own homes, its with our mates and I don’t see someone saying “Don’t call me via Video or Skype, I want you to put your video and Skype call face on first”.
If someone had ever said that to me I would not call them fall stop, and leave them to chat with themselves. I think that this shows how many people worry about appearances too much, as that is not important. I would not stop talking to someone because they have decided to have a no make up day.
I suppose you are wondering why this has any relevance to Life Coaching, well basically when we feel we are’t having a fulfilled life we can blame ourselves because of the way we look and feel ashamed of ourselves.
Let me tell you from someone who doesn’t always like to look in the mirror, appearances are not important but being human is and as long as you show love and compation then appearance is at the bottom of the list and its your personality that will shine through.
So Look after yourself, be true, be strong and never allow anyone stop you for wanting a better and happier life.

Hello this blog post is talking about Exploitation and copying and is part of my Life Coaching Programme “Project 2021”.
This post includes a video, where by I address obsessive Copying and Exploitation, because there are people who will steal people’s work to have for themselves and is an insult and disrespect to the person who has made the time and effort to create that work and so why do that? Please watch this video:
I love being inspired and it is good to see how other people do things and is how I got into blogging, but I believe in creating your own stamp on things, and making it yours. I have created this programme to help people to have a better life and one area I want to address is those who copy others, because they can’t be original and do their own work. There are those who exploit themselves by filming themselves naked and showing their body parts to try and score points over someone thinking it is going to get them more noticed.
Let me say, this does not and it is making you look obscene and downright disgusting and let’s face it, would you want to see a mans bits or a womens bits when eating your steak and chips, settling down to watch some Youtube? No.
So be real, be true and make your work your own.
Many thanks you reading,
Carrie (L.M) X

So as part of my Project 2021, which is a Life Coaching Programme I am putting together to help you my readers of my blog post try to have a better year than last and with that I want to put up a lot of Slogans too, and here I show a Slogan on one of my jumpers from Amazon, which Says “Be Kind” and is featured in my first Project 2021 video.
This first Youtube Video dedicated to this programme Project 2021 is about using Laughter to help make you feel better about passed issues and events, and can help you feel better about the things that once bothered you. Laughter is a great source of medicine to being more happy about life.
I will be adding this footage to the Online Course I want to do too, dedicated to this Life Coaching Programme, and I have linked my first blog on this site about 2021, below, so go ahead and see the link which includes the link to my dedicated Facebook Group too.
Please read this article that came up on my Laptop today about a kid who tried to con the Tooth fairy:
Being able to laugh at situations can really help you through the days and weeks, and when I have days where I feel a bit down, I try to find items that will make me laugh and feel better.
It is a great source of happiness and those endorphins aren’t to be missed but taken advantage of, and you will soon be happier about things that have taken place in your life, which at first seemed to be the hardest moments; I find writing items in my books that I found humorious to be a great way to do that, as well as sad times, and sometimes writing sad stories you can still add a comical stamp on it.
So keep going, stay strong and never give up believing.
Many thanks for reading,

Hello and welcome! So it is another Lockdown. Yeah, Boris really knows how to fuck up a year that has just started, but hey ho, that’s what happens when we have a Pandemic, which seems is going to effect us in a big way, as it means that once again, those who are elderly and are alone, will stay alone, and that is nothing to be thankful for.
So I say still go round and see them, even if it is half an hour of the day, and take them a cake or a pie, or give them some flowers. They are the people I think about, when this kind of thing happens, and they are forgotten about.
I feel that many industries will be effected like Football who rely a lot on supporters buying their season tickets each season and bums on seats. Also, the Chelsea Pentioners who are ex-servicemen, love going to football matches and is time for them to be out for two hours or so, so they will miss out aswell. We do need to help the elderly and those extra vulnerable when it comes to having a complete Lockdown.
What it may do though, is keep people out of hospitals, and eventually I hope that the numbers of those with COVID will go down, but the question that comes into my head, is how do they know it is COVID if they still unable to test everybody?
I am going to leave that question there, but if you have an answer please tell me. There is a comments section below.
I am going to use this time, to inspire and talk about those who do inspiring things, and especially through Lockdown of last year. First off, I would like to say a Thank you, to the one and only Gary Barlow, who was making some great videos, having some famous artists sing with him, with the joy of social media, (see below link to his Youtube channel):
Then there are other Youtube channels where people have still been sharing there home life. The one lady I love to watch, is CraftyGirl. She does daily videos of her life, along with some DIY videos, and Kerry Whelpdale, who does a lot of meal ideas videos. See link to their Youtube channels below:
Being in Lockdown, we should all pull together and create magic via the social channels and Davina McCall has create a website called: Own Your Goals, and is brilliant. I have signed up to it, and you can still exercise without going too far, so please check this out, as there are loads of workouts from 5 to 35 minutes to choose from, and why not still invite a friend round so you can do a home workout together.
I have also, used this time, to create a new Programme called Project 2021, which will consist of life coaching materials, to help people have a better year and accomplish more than they could dream of. It isn’t about hard work, as I don’t want that myself, but having a life full of fun, laughter and accomplishment. See details about this programme in the link below:
Hello and welcome! First of all thank you for all your lovely comments on my posts and for following me on this site and getting me to 100 followers. It really does mean the world to me, and helped me get through 2020.
I feel in some way I should make a speech, but as I am a rambler a lot, I won’t spare you the pain.
So it is 2021 a New Year:
I have come up with a new programme called PROJECT 2021, which will include,
To do all these things you need to paint the picture. Now I am no Vanguff, in fact far from it, but nevertheless, when I set a goal I also create the picture, and map out the things I wish to accomplish whether it be writing a new book or try a different type of exercise routine, I map it out.
I suppose you can say that it is a form of brainstorming, and the one method you can do is like a road map and marking out each milestone you achieve as you continue on the road, to reach the ultimate target, and goals should have an end result.
To get much more out of a New Year, you should always prioritse, as the other important thing, which I talk a lot about on this site and will be getting you to focus on a lot, is having down time. Time where you stop work and you schedule in time to play with the kids and have a family meal together. That is just two examples.
I have been guilty in working all through the days and weeks, because I get so ingrosed in my work that often I forget to do this too. It should be top priority aswell as the work you need to get done or exercising for example.
Life is about making the most of the time and days, as much as possible, and that is not putting 25 things down for a day, but keep to a minimal list, so you have a purpose and a goal each day, and doing the things you love aswell as the things you have to do.
Here is my Pinterest board with some material I have pinned that will help you get involved in Project 2021, as I have added some articles and pins, with many Life Coaching tools, and more will be added as I continue to help you grow this year, like never before.
So to begin please join my facebook group and follow my Pinterest page above, and you will have full access to these materials, and there will be an online course created for this programme, with Youtube Video Content and some EBooks too.
Please check out my Facebook Group page which you can join and be part of my Project 2021, here is the link below:
Hello and welcome to my weekly Inspiring Stories post. This week I am talking about the musicality of the musical agenious, Fatboy Slim.
Now if you didn’t know he was in a band called, The Housemartins in my favourite decade the 80’s, and co-wrote many records such as the most famous one, “Happy Hour Again”, and the other song that they sang live in concert and is on Youtube,”The Caravan Of Love”.
He then once the band split up in the 80’s, continued to write and produce more music hits such as the “Weapon of Choice” and this song has a brilliant video featuring Christopher Walkin, who is a brilliant actor and just goes with the song.
Fatboy Slim is now a Top DJ and has played at many clubs, such as Minitry Of Sound and The Hammersmith Palais, which I would often visit being in my home town. It isn’t there anymore, but was a great place for music artistis, producers and DJ’s beginning their careers. He met his wife Zoe Ball through a famous Saturday morning TV show, which was Going Live on BBC 1.
He still produces music, but was diagnosed with having Crohn Disease so has been spending time with his family and friends that are very close to him. He and Zoe, who recently had her own morning show on a Saturday, DJ’s on Radio 1 and hosted It Takes Two for Strictly Come Dancing, have had children together and keep being reported of being split up, but they have not and love each other out of this world, in that she has helped raise awareness of Crohn Disease, aswell as helping him produce more music.
Fatboy Slim helped develop the band, The Housemartins and worked in music from a very young age of 16 as his dad was a record producer and Radio DJ, but he too was diagnosed with Crohn Disease, and lost his battle a couple of years ago.
Zoe has helped raise awareness of Crohn Disease as there isn’t much information of why and when a person has it, and if it is heriditory or not, but has been on programmes like This Morning which is a Magazine show on the UK channel ITV, talking about it.
Here is the famous song by Fatboy Slim, “Weapons Of Choice” with the brilliant video that was made:
He loved music as a kid and would spend endless days in his bedroom creating music like me, with a keyboard and guitar, which his dad bought for him and some of his songs stemmed from when he was a kid.
I think this goes to show that even as a child when many adults thought that kids didn’t know better, do and as they say “The Rest Is History”, and when creating music or books even as a kid helps to remember that it isn’t just a job like any other, and something to celebrate and remember that kid all those years back.
If you would like to know more about Crohn Disease then check out this link below about it:
I hope you all have a good new year and I will be back with another Inspiring story next week.
Hello welcome to my weekly blog where I write about people who have inspired me, and one of those people is someone who whenever I felt stressed about something, one of his songs would come on the radio, as if he knew I would be listening.
I have seen this man twice once at Wembley Stadium and then in Hyde Park, at the Hard Rock Festival, and was very much planned last minute but well worth it.
He was fornominal and I always say you know how good a person is at what they are famous for when they are brilliant live, and he was. It is the legendary, the First Sir of Rock, The Boy in Blue, Sir Rod Stewart.
I would go and see him again as it was one of the best concerts and festivals I have been too. Sir Uncle Rod did something that noone else did, and that he has had number hit record in every decade, since he began his career.
Now many think that he started his career in the Seventies, but as my father inlaw knows a lot about music back then, knows that he was actually known in the sixties as there is a Rock ‘n’ Roller who said his name in one of his songs, but obvioiusly was a youngster then, but yes people within the industry back then knew of him and helped him begin a career in music. It was a song sung by Jeff Beck.
He did the whole thing like many artists and even comedians back then did, performed in many Clubs and Pubs and was in a Rock Band called the Faces. He then as he moved towards the end of the 70’s began a Solo career and had endless hits like, If ya think I’m Sexy, Baby Jane, one of my favourites and saw live singing with Stevie Nicks at the Hard Rock calling festival, Maggie May and Have I told you lately that I love you.
They are but a few, but I could go on and mention more. There have been many artists within music that have not lasted but it has for Rod for over 70 years or so, and to last that long means that he has a forever lasting legacy which will continue to grow passed his life, like many singers of his generation.
Rod never really wrote many of his songs, but collaborated with various artists like Van Morrison, Stevie Nicks from Fleetwood Mac and his best mate who was also a band member of the Faces, Ronnie Wood, who wrote many of Cyndi Lauper songs, which became hits and another Artist I love listening too.
Ronnie and Rod were school friends and grew up together. It is good to have friends in the industry as you can have those who try to intervene and destroy you, but pretend to be a fan and a support, but move the carpet underneath you and try and take your fame away, for themselves.
I would love to see Cyndi Lauper and Rod Stewart do a song together, not hinting by any means but if you are reading this Sir Rod, who is actually Scottish not English, because he really is and you may see him at many of Scotland International matches in football and rugby, but I think it would be a massive hit and many may think they couldn’t because they have different voices, but it can. Noone thought that he would sing a Van Morrison song, with Van Morrison himself, because his music was mainly country and western, but he did.
They sang together live.
Here is a video of Rod Stewart performing with the wonderful and glorious Tina Turner, “It Takes Two”
His parents was born and raised in Scotland and he spent some of his childhood living their too, and always has respected the country in which he comes from, and has lived in London for a while too, aswell as America. He is but a few that have made it across the water, and will be a name and artist that everyone knows. One of his daughters is an artist too, Kimberley Stewart, and his gorgeous wife Penny is a household name, who was a model to begin with but since then been into photography and helped with the covers of her husband, Sir Rod, CD covers and has also been on loose women.
When he was in the Faces he was destined to be a pin up for many ladies, but since those days, his is very much a Private Family man and word has it he ain’t bad with the old Golf Club. Perhaps he could give my brother a clump being that he thought he was Nick Faldo when playing Pitch ‘n’ Putt, and loves spending Christmas both in America and Scotland.
There is a song that he recorded recently and do feel like I wrote the song in some way as it is the most beautiful song I have ever heard, and that is The First Time.
He does a lot of work with the Royal Family and is often invited to Royal Banquettes and parties, but he doesn’t shy away from being typical Rock and Roller, by the fact that he still sings and performs like he first began his career at the age of 16.
Rod, you are a legend and I hope there will be more songs and albums to come, and that he will do more concerts as I will most definitely be there if you do.
So I will be back next week sharing more Inspiring stories and please see enclosed a Christmas song by Rod Stewart:
