“No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.”
The Dead Poet Society
I believe wholeheartedly in the power of words.
When I think of this power, I always remember Adolph Hitler where he said, “The broad masses of a population are more amenable to the appeal of rhetoric than to any other force.”
“Rhetoric is the art of persuasive speaking or writing; persuasive language that is empty or insincere.” –Oxford English Dictionary
Hitler used his words for evil. Through his words, Hitler galvanized the German army to exterminate over 6 million Jews.
Yes, “. . . words and ideas can change the world.”
But words spoken or written can also be a dominant force for good.
My name is Rosa Chillis, and I love words; my greatest passion is reading. I’m a “bibliophile” or as some would say a “bookworm.” But I also enjoy writing.
My aesthetic aligns perfectly with the Lotus plant. This plant opens in the morning, and the petals fall in the afternoon.
Thus, I’m a “lark” and rise early in the day as I’m fresher in the morning when I begin my writing—when I’m most alert.
Also, the Lotus plant has its beginning in shallow, murky waters (mud), yet it’s untouched by this impurity; this symbolizes strength and flexibility.
How does this relate to my writing?
I ensure that my words offer hope to any struggling with harsh living conditions that could include poor health or emotional misery.
After all, “words and ideas can change the world.”
I started out teaching at an online university for 19 years and at the same time working in the career/professional development space. During this time, I also earned the Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) certification through the Center for Credentialing & Education, Inc. (CCC).
I thoroughly enjoyed this work.
I went on to write several books in the field of self-improvement and careers, including one just for boomer women titled: What Every Unemployed Woman Over 50 Should Know: 17 Success Strategies to Land Your Next Job (2014).
Now I’m a health writer. My new book planned release date in March 2019: A Family Caregiver’s Guide: 7 Secrets to Convert Negative Triggers to Positive Emotions.
Why the switch?
I provided 24/7 care to my husband for more than three years, including three months in hospice at home.
As a caregiving wife, I joined the more than 40 million family caregivers in the United States where more than 60% are female.
I also participated in online support groups where I read much heart wrenching negative feelings expressed about caring for loved ones.
My husband has since passed away, but it was during the time I cared for him and listening to the many overwhelmed and stressed out caregivers in my support groups, that I decided I wanted to make a positive difference.
Caregiving is backbreaking work!
So I started a blog where I researched and wrote many articles on health topics—articles to not only offer hope but to educate.
The breadth of evidence shows there is a definite link between our mind and body; between our physical fitness and psychological well-being.
Thus, the idea for my “health” book (7 Secrets to Convert Negative Triggers to Positive Emotions) took shape.
I have a Master of Education degree and am a Certified Caregiving Consultant.
