In 2018 I began my blog, 45 Things as a way to try some new things and to begin sharing my writing publicly. The initial vision was for me to complete 45 tasks and to write about what I learned from them. I began my journey and was doing well until a mental health issue and a concussion ended that particular journey.
When I was feeling better, the year had passed and I felt I had failed. I didn’t complete my entire list. I did, however, learn that I had accomplished something even greater – I had learned that I had courage.
In November of 2019, I began my blog series, 45 Days of Courage which was a journey for me to move away from feeling like I live in a world of chaos and fear, to living with courage and vulnerability. The blog was very well-received and I had many people comment that the posts were helping them to step out of their comfort zones, to practice courage and to begin to see the world a little differently.
Now, in 2020, a new series will begin. Please follow me as we explore 45 Moments of Wonder, an exploration of curiosity and wonder in the everyday world around and within us. The new series begins on January 1, 2020.
Christine Sharpe loves being a writer, a mother, a wife, a teacher and a friend. She has worked as an educational leader for over twenty years and in that time has seen a growing need for courage.
When she isn’t writing or working, Christine enjoys spending time with her wife, Nancee, their two children, their cat, and their two rescued hounds at their home in London Ontario.
