I am a writer. I can feel the words come to me. Creative ideas and thoughts have been arriving more frequently. I have known this much of my life. I have recently been reflecting on why I haven’t pursued what I know is my true calling. One of the reasons we are all here is to share our gifts. Communication is one of my gifts. I personally think all of us are here as teachers to others and there are many ways to teach.
I wrote a column in my high school newspaper called, “Carli’s Corner,” which is how I chose the name of my blog. Aside from letters to the editor, this was the last time I was published. I have decided to pursue my passion of writing again and attempt to eliminate my fear of judgment for my work! I have been inspired by Brene’ Brown’s work on vulnerability and Elizabeth Gilbert’s creativity book, “Big Magic”. Brene’ Brown’s discovery of the quote by Teddy Roosevelt resonates with me:
I am taking a leap of faith. Here I go! Judge away world, I am putting my toe in the arena!
I am also the Mother of 3 beautiful children- Sierra, Jace, and Mya, a Mother to my dog Lexi, a girlfriend to my “guy,” Kirk, a Leader, a Health Care Administrator, friend to many, daughter, sister, and last but not even close to least, a Child of God.
