Success is a choice. When we focus on the outcome of success, rather than the fear of failure, we choose to succeed by our actions.

A Moment in Time

A small moment in time? Or is it? We sometimes take these small moments in time for granted. We think, “Oh, this doesn’t matter, it’s not that big of a deal.” But if we pause and take the time to really think about it.... these little things do matter.

Goals vs Wishes

There are distinct differences in how we think, to establish whether what we are desiring becomes a goal or a wish. What may at first appear to be a goal, is often just the façade of a hopeful wish.

Color Palette - 30

Carin Camen

For our final color palette for this month, let's end it with a bit of dramatic flare using a beautiful monochromatic blue color palette. In this color palette you are seeing how the blue stands out against a black background. While black is not normally associated with a popular wall color, I personally have seen it used and it is absolutely stunning. It is a bold wall color choice.

Color Palette - 29

Carin Camen

As you are selecting photographs from nature, be mindful of all the colors within the photo, not just the prominent ones. Pay attention to which colors are providing a beautiful background for the main colors. Look to see if there are small hints of color which you could utilize to scatter in visual interest.

Bots... If you're out there, we will find you!

Bots... those pesky accounts none of us want following us because they are not real individuals. They make it harder for those just starting out, to verify they are not a new bot account.

The Time Factor

Carin Camen

There are those who can magically transform the allotted time you are have been given. You are no longer in that moment in time, but have been transported into another dimension where time no longer exists. The world you know has disappeared, and for a few moments in time, you exist in a new world, created by another's hands. It may be a world you desire to remain, or a world you know you should flee, but are trapped within its bounds.

2022 Come Journey With Me

Carin Camen

The year 2022... the year I step into fantasy and fiction as I continue to travel upward in my journey as an author. It is a path I extend my hand and invite you to join me. It will be a year of mystery and adventures. The future is unknown to any of us, but together we place one foot in front of the other and face what lies ahead. It will be a journey of discovery. A small moment in time with great impact in our lives, should we choose to accept the challenges and learn the lessons which they will teach us.

Photography Collections

As per requested, I am placing my photography on my website. My first collection is entitled, Hidden Tresures. These are photo's I took to be a part of a future The Ember Within book, entitled Hidden Treasures.

Hidden Treasures lie around us... if only we will take the time to see them, they will be found.

Worlds Without End Lie Deep Within

Carin Camen

For someone who has written five books on learning how to create self-discipline in order to overcome procrastination... well... I must confess. I've been procrastinating. I understand why... fear. I understand my fear... failure. I understand the benefit of failure... I'm going to learn so much in the process that it's going to be phenomenal.

The Blue Flame Warrior Woman Rises Once More

Carin Camen

Oh yes... I am on fire! For those who are not familiar with the Blue Flame Warrior Woman, this is a visualization I use. It is used when I am focused and on fire with determination to take myself to the next level. I seriously, need to create an image of what I envision in my mind.

Level 60 - Excerpt from Sphere — A Plea From Beyond

Carin Camen

As I step into Level 60, my birthday present to my readers is a newly written excerpt from my fiction book Sphere — A Plea From Beyond. My 2022 goal is to release this book. I hope you enjoy this teaser. In a darkened mist a figure could be seen on the mountain peak. A lone woman kneeling down on one knee with her long hair flowing in the wind. Her weight of her body leaning on a sword dug into the earth to help her hold herself up. Next to the sword a blue flame emblem faintly glowed on the shield which lay on the ground.

Sphere – A Plea From Beyond

Carin Camen

Author note: I have had Sphere 369 brewing in my mind for several years. This name of this book came to my mind and I researched the meaning of these three numbers... 369. "369 represents compassion, idealism, and creative expression. The energy the number 369 represents also resonates with tolerance and tends to be philanthropic. The 369 energy is an inspiration to others." Google search. Having written a draft of a few chapters, I came to realize more research was needed on the evolution of civilization, government, religion, deity, and societies. Thus, I put my writing aside and have spent the next few years reading both fiction and non-fiction works. This book brings to life, the visualization characters I share throughout my non-fiction writing. It felt time, to let them breathe.The following are my thoughts for the opening of this book.
