Confessions of a Recovering Perfectionist

Have you ever had your life get flipped, turned upside down? No, really, my fellow recovering perfectionist – I want to know. This isn’t just an excuse to quote the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song. I want to know if you’ve had every shred of confidence swept away. I want to know if you’ve stood in the clearing, terrified of the emptiness around you. And most of all, I want to know if you’ve come through stronger than you were before. …

One Question To Ask When the Going Gets Tough

On my first day of kindergarten, my mom gave me some advice. She told me what her mother told her on the first day of school: when you walk through the doors, don’t worry about making friends. Just focus on finding the girl who looks even more upset about all this than you do. Go over to her and say hello. Smile. Then, you’ll have a friend. My five-year-old-self was incredulous. Could it be that simple? With a little prompting, I gave it a shot. I walked up to a weeping girl and said, “Hi, I’m Caroline. What’s your name?” ...

Getting to Know You (& What You Didn’t Know About Me)

Dear readers, I'd like to get to know you better. I've been posting here for nearly three years now (!), and I love writing to you. So I'd like to say thank you, and hear more about you. Would you leave a comment on this post, or send me an email? Just something simple. Your name, how you came to be here, why you read A Wish Come Clear. If you want to go deeper: what's going on in your life? What weighs on your heart? What do you dream about? What do you wish you could talk about, but ...

One More Day, One Day More…

Speaking of Les Miserables, when I was about seven, my parents went to see the show on Broadway. When they came home, I pored over their programs, and expressed the ardent hope that I, too, might one day get to see "Lessss Misera-bellies" live. True story. Anyway, what I mean to say is... Thank You. The survey responses I've received so far have been SUPER helpful. You're shaping forthcoming posts and products, allowing me to zero in on exactly what you'd like to see more of at A Wish Come Clear. That said, it's Wednesday, and I'm planning to evaluate ...

Our First-Ever Survey + Giveaway!

Hello and good morning, readers! (A special welcome to readers from The Caregiver's Voice; I have a short post there today. Does this count as guest post #7-in-a-row? You be the judge...) I must confess:  I was in a bit of a blue funk last Friday. (Or maybe it was the mean reds. Points if you can name that reference.) Anyway, I was feeling a little woe-is-me at the end of a long work day. This week of guest posting (an honor thought it's been!) hasn't brought the kind of growth I'd hoped for. And so I was doubting, weakening. ...
