Anniversary Time!

»Posted by on Feb 1, 2017 in Blog, Heartfelt Treasures | 0 comments

January 20th marked the three-year anniversary of Connie’s Corner.  If you’d like to read my very first post as I launched this website, here is the link. Just a little walk down memory lane. In that blog, I introduced myself and shared a little bit about my life and my purpose for having embarked on the whole website / blog journey. So much has changed in my life since then. My kids have both found their life loves and thus I now have three grandchildren and a soon to be daughter-in-law. I am no longer working as a museum director. That change came about a few months after I posted that first-ever blog.  While I miss my job, my friends and the challenges of running a thriving historical non-profit organization, I wake up every morning knowing that leaving was...

To Blog or Not To Blog! That is a question?

  Today is a special day. I am celebrating the two-year anniversary of Connie’s Corner. It pretty-much snuck up on me, and seeing this milestone date pop up on my calendar caused me to pause and take a moment from my busy schedule to reflect a bit. Why did I start my Connie’s Corner blog website? What was I hoping to accomplish? Have I reached any of the writing and speaking goals that I set for myself two years ago when I when I started down this pathway? Have I improved my quality life and affected the life of those around me in some positive manner? These were all questions that have been churning around in my head all week as the anniversary date crept closer and closer. The easiest question to answer, is the why. Why did I decide to start a blog page?...

My Thoughts on Writer’s Doubt

I am participating in a writing contest called, “Overcoming Writer’s Doubt” sponsored by Positive Writer. I do have some doubts about my writing, so I thought, why not enter? Maybe what I have to say can help me have some victory over this debilitating disease of doubt, or help others that might also be struggling. I distinctly remember that terrifying, but exciting, day that I sat at my computer after uploading my first blog. I sat with my finger poised over the “publish” button agonizing over whether it was good enough…whether I was good enough? I kept asking myself, what if people don’t like what I wrote. What would happen? As much as I stressed over it, you would think that bridges would fall into the ocean if my stories weren’t “loved”. To read...

My First Day of School at Age 55…

My First Day of School at Age 55…

My first words on the first page of my very first blog website. I am sitting in my beautiful craft room- slash-creative office with my morning coffee, trying to find a unique and totally “me” way to begin this new chapter of my life. According to my friends and family, it’s been a long time coming and I am excited to open this book and embark on this rather scary journey of blogging.  But I’m also a bit nervous.  It reminds me of the first day of a new school year.  I agonize over so many questions. Will I do the right things?  Will I say the right words? Will they like me?  Will they be my friend?  Fortunately, the one thing I don’t have to worry about is what to wear, which I remember was very high on the list of stress conductors as the first day of school...
