Charline Stands For
- Education – knowledge is empowering - knowledge is needed to better oneself in any aspect of one’s life.
- Belief – belief in oneself that, with knowledge and tenacity, anything is possible. All one must do is believe, and then act upon, that belief.
- Creativity – creativity comes in many shapes, forms and styles. It is a common misconception that one must be gifted with 'artistic' ability to create. Even those who live full-time in the left-brain side of their head create. They just don’t realize it. (I've had this debate many times in the past). That boring textbook is, in fact, a creation. That tedious spreadsheet, the one that only a CPA can love, is also a creation. We all create - we just need to recognize that creation is simply: calling into existence something that wasn’t there previously. To me, this is what certain people/religious/spiritual belief systems mean when they say “everyone is God.”
- Helping others – giving back. Helping others is really a necessity of life. You grow as a person when you look around and can see the suffering/needs of others. You grow as a person when you have the desire to help, and then do so. Each person in this world is a small piece of a huge puzzle. Every person has the ability to dream and create. How much better would this world be, if every person could actually dream and create without being hampered by hunger, poverty, fear, or any of the countless other hard-to-overcome problems that pop up as we journey through life?
