Carrie’s book , The Little Spark: 30 Ways to Ignite Your Creativity was recently noticed by Team Oprah and was featured in the August 2015 edition of Oprah Magazine.
As part of Oprah’s feature, “Play to Your Strengths!” all about discovering your unique gifts and making the most of who you are, Carrie shared one of her 30 Sparks from the book – Have a Secret. She offered her thoughts about why it is important to sometimes keep secrets — to hold things sacred and not share everything — so that we remain pregnant with our creation and feel the power and strength that comes from within.
The folks at Oprah called Carrie’s advice a “quick self esteem booster.” Oprah’s advice?
“Today, do something alone—just for you, by yourself—in the middle of nowhere, in a hidden place or out in the world, with no one else around. …Don’t tell your spouse or best friend about it. Don’t tell your parents or children about it. Don’t tweet it, Instagram it, Facebook it or blog about it—ever. Just be alone with it. Feel it. It is yours.“
