Your Declaration Of Interdependence

Author's Note:  There are several Declarations Of Interdependence as of this writing; declarations of religious, racial and environmental interdependence among them. But today, this one's for you. If you enjoy it, please pass it along. Thank you! *** In honor of the holiday…no, scratch that. Inspired by the holiday, in honor of one woman, I'm writing a declaration. You see, I worked with a Your Life, Supported! client this week. (I'll call her V.) A bit of background on V:  she's the sole caregiver for her son, P, and has been for many years. How did this happen? Years ago, ...

My Life, Supported: On Setting Goals, Asking For Help + Breaking New Ground

Good morning! First, a reminder that, if you're thinking about signing on for Your Life, Supported!, now is the time to send me an email (caroline AT awishcomeclear.com). Rates go up for sessions booked after July 1... ...which is next Friday. (Unbelievable, isn't it?) Now's your chance. In honor of the aforementioned changeover, I rewrote my support plan + tracking tool this week. In doing so, I made a fascinating discovery:  I'm in a different place now than I was just 2 months ago. 2 months ago, my support plan included goals for every area of my life. At the ...

First, a tremendous thank you to everyone who completed/entered A Wish Come Clear's first survey + giveaway! I'm thrilled to announce the winner of our contest:  Veronique, a woman who has a son with disabilities.

The simplicity and compassion in her response spoke out to me, and reminded me that the work we do for ourselves benefits those we love ...

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. ...
