I am not confused.

Today I am taking a page from Alexandra Franzen’s figurative book. If you love her work, like I do (!!), you can buy her actual books here.

I have gleaned some clarity recently and I’m happy to report that I am not confused.

My name is Carmen.

I am a visionary, a matriarch, and a writer.

Ultimately, all of my work is about helping people understand and cultivate resilience.

(Because, skillful – and grace-filled – response to inevitable adversity and heartbreak will allow people to flourish in all seasons of their lives.)

And I am not confused.

I invite you to try this exercise and report back. Don’t judge yourself, get clear and honest.

Let me know how it goes.
