Women get fired up at conference


For the women of Barren County, Thursday was a day to get fired up. T.J. Samson Community Hospital and the Glasgow Business and Professional Women’s Club hosted their fourth annual women’s conference at the Cave City Convention Center.

The seven and a half hour event included vendors such as jewelry makers and health care professionals, health screenings, fitness lessons, door prizes and a physician panel. The conference centered around keynote speaker Carol Grace Anderson, who taught participants to “get fired up without burning out” through two talks about finding passion and balance in life.

“Life is either a daring, fired up adventure or it’s nothing,” Anderson said.

Each individual is in charge of firing up their own life, Anderson said. She coined the word “motiv-action” to describe what a person must do to pursue a fired up life.

Getting fired up makes a person more creative, energized, productive and fun, Anderson said, and each person must choose to be positive.

“We don’t always choose our circumstances, but we always choose our response,” Anderson said.

Anderson had everyone in the room yell, “I feel great,” as a demonstration of the attitude each should have at the beginning of the day.

“When you start off on a great note, that permeates the day,” Anderson said.
