Introducing LibbyCarl.com

Two years ago, I sat in my bedroom in our house in Cincinnati and started this blog. I had no idea what I was getting into, but I did know this:

  1. I wanted to write
  2. I was scared to death to do it
  3. I had a moment of courage and I capitalized on it.

I know this about myself: I get scared. Real scared. Almost paralyzed scared. Scared of judgment, scared of failure, and scared of what others will think. So scared that I won’t pursue what I want to do. Continue reading

Weekly Top 5, Vol. 35 – Thankful

Now I’m just pulling the Band-Aid off to get back on track and so happy to be back! Here are the things making me happy… Continue reading

How I Conquer Anxiety

Weekly Top 5, Vol. 30 – Small Steps

Good morning! Another week is here! The first thing I’m happy about this week: how did I get to 30 of these? Lately I’ve been really hung up on the power of one small step, then another, and another. When I started this part of the blog, I was scared I’d never be able to fill in a list week after week. Now I’ve done it 30 times!

Other things I’m happy about: Continue reading
