Hello, It’s Me.

by katelin on January 5, 2017

It’s taken me five days into the new year to start to find my footing. I feel like the last┬áthree weeks have been a total whirlwind. The holidays have always been fun for me, but they’re also exhausting and leave me feeling like I’m constantly playing catch up.

Despite the fact that Christmas is still all around our apartment, I feel like 2017 is my time to move forward. 2016 felt a bit stagnant and that I was constantly trying to stay afloat. Yes, there were definitely wonderful moments last year, almost all of them involving Riley but there were also hard times. There were stressful times and there were just plain exhausting times.

And yesterday I sat down to write this and realized, this is the time to make changes. Make decisions. Make actual moves. Whether that means I go back to work full-time or I start writing more and throwing myself out there, something needs to happen.

I want 2017 to be the year that I work on being a better person. A better mother, a better wife, a better sister, a better daughter and a better friend. I want 2017 to be the year where I don’t feel like I’m constantly treading water.

I want this year to be the year of putting my phone down when my son asks to be a superhero. I want to cook more and bake more. I want to tell people how grateful I am for them. I want to read again. I want to really read. I want to write here more. I love this space and I’m not quite ready to let it go.

So that’s it. That’s my goal for 2017 in a nutshell. Here’s to hoping we can make it happen.

Cheers, everyone.



happy thursday!
