  1. Wow, Carrie. I did not expect to read all that. Honestly, I’m excited for you. I hope that my journey and how it has turned out has shown you what’s possible in this difficult set of circumstances. You have a fantastic attitude and openness, and though the pain can be awful sometimes, you’ll get to where you need to go. I look forward to following along!

  2. I am sad and happy for you at the same time. You are always welcome (here near Pittsburgh). You don’t need any BS advice from me but Take a listen to Mary Chaplin Carpenter for the trip on the Road. 💕

  3. Come here. Let us cook for you and love on you. Strong wifi, good beer, excellent coffee, and all the You Time you need.

    We have more words to swap. ♡

  4. This statement of yours really rang true with me, albeit adding a few more years to the age variable:

    >>”I’m 43 years old and I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. I’ve always lived with a sort of angst that I’m not doing the right thing with my life or that I’m not where I should be. ”

    I still feel like that kid pondering all sorts of things. But, given the “real adult” things that have taken place in the last 5 yrs, I think I still like the kid-view of all things are possible. 🙂

    So yeah, I’m on board with CGA, since, selfishly hoping to hug your kind self along your journey. Can’t wait to see what my friend cdub discovers along the way.

  5. Carrie, thanks so much for sharing… I hope I can find any posts from you “road trip” also. I just happened across this one on Twitter… a place I really don’t visit much, and this post really spoke to me. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Carrie,

    Thank you for sharing. It’s hard to share the personal details of our lives sometimes, but I know it’s helpful, too. If you make your way to Pittsburgh, as Patte suggested, you’re more than welcome here. I’ve been in at least part of your shoes and I know how disorienting it can be. I’m sure you will find your way again with the help of your tribe and family. 🙂

  7. Thank you for sharing the twists and turns of your story, for taking the time to leave some trail markers for others.

  8. I still remember those office hours live Thursdays and your goodness is still fresh in my head.

    You have always been an inspiration for me to break out of the mould and try new things.

    Life tests everyone no matter what age. Goodness always triumphs any obstacle.You are fearless and centre of inspiration for my people including me. Keep rocking!

    P.S. I am always there to support in things I can 🙂

  9. I have long since forgiven you for ever working at Starbucks! 😉 You know I love you sis. Sounds like a year of changes. You can always ping me if you need anything. You were so patient with me back in the day when I was navigating Genesis.
