About


Carole West blogger of See the Good


Hello Friends, I'm Carole West 

One of the simplest people you will ever encounter.  I spend the majority of my time with my husband Robert and we're currently building a home that we designed together.

I've been blogging for some time, and it has changed a lot over the years. You may remember me from my retired blog, Garden Up Green or perhaps we have met in real life?

Since retiring that space and stepping away from freelance writing I decided to get out more.  This wasn't easy, but I was in a rut and knew in my heart that interaction was a good idea.  

It's been interesting and yet I still find that a walk-in nature is the best way to really understand what is real and what is not. 

So, why did I return to blogging?  Among other things, I love to write, always have and missed the beauty of putting words together.  When you have a creative spirit, having an outlet is healthy. 

I'm in a good place spiritually, where I recognize my weaknesses and see my gifts as a blessing. I don't want to waste them so here I am. 

This time around, I've decided to direct my writing down a broader path that is focused on seeing the good. It's my hope to offer a glance as to what that looks like through optimistic eyes. 

Fragments of me will appear in my posts because it's our activity that makes us who we are. Perhaps what makes me unique is that I'm more intent on where God is leading. 

So, I'm not going to bore you with my resume. I will say, living in East Texas has been one of the best decisions Robert and I could have made for this next chapter of life.

It's my hope you read along, find encouragement and begin to see the good in a way that maybe you have missed.

-Carole
