Yesterday was the first day back to school for Lily in the year 2015. It’s sorta the unofficial ‘official’ first work day of 2015. and while you were all out getting a head start on this new year – a fresh lease on your goals – a new beginning for all you want to be this new year… I was rolling around on the floor with my sweet little 2-year-old Moto.
You see it’s not that I don’t have any goals or aspirations… i have lots of them… but I have learned over the years that I need to keep them in check because very easily the feeling of inadequacy and insecurity creep up and swallow me up whole. Tis the struggle of stay at home mamas! ( although i do work so technically i’m not stay at home but 5 out of 7 days i’m home)
2014 was a pretty awesome year both professionally and personally. This blog landed quite a few big time accounts and campaigns and I am hoping to build on that in this new year. I have settled into a pretty awesome job where I’m doing what I love with people I respect and enjoy. And the kids are still alive and have all their arms and legs in tact!! Woop!
This year is going to be mighty fine. I’m sure of it. I really do want to thank YOU… yes you… anonymous reader and also my friends and family who pour over this blog and support all my crazy concepts. I want to thank you all for sticking through with me on this journey and coming back for my random quips on life.
When I started this blog a few years ago, it really was a venting space for the loss of my dance career because i became a parent. Those posts have since been taken down because they were harsh and true and honest and HARSH and I have moved on. I have come to grips with the fact that I had an amazing dance career, I rocked the dance scene and accomplished a great amount of things in the dance performance and education fields. I hope i inspired my students and audience to think outside of everything they feel comfortable with and ask questions and find their voice through movement and art.
This year I am taking my own advice and doing just that. Asking questions, challenging myself and making things happen! CREATE – ing the life I want.
While today did not do much for my world domination plans… I always have tomorrow. or next week!
There are lots of fun changes coming to this blog. Don’t I say that every single year! and every single year – my dear friend – who is practically family comments and says ” yea we love you, you rock. bring it” and every year I have another something that comes up which takes time away from my blog. But this year i mean it… My friend Kristi’s voice is loud and clear in my head and I got this! I love that you read this blog and swing by and check in all the time. So i hope to have more content and a clarity about where this blog is headed really soon.
I wrote about my word for 2015… CREATE.
I want to curate this life of mine to fit my wants and interests and make it what I want it to be. Here’s how:
Yoga – my dear old friend yoga is back in my life. I have found an amazing teacher and can’t wait to invest in her classes.
Dinner parties – Matt and I used to throw some pretty swank dinner parties before we had kids. I’m bringing those back this year.
Travel – my wanderlust cannot be contained any longer!
I’m starting with these 3 and see what happens from here. It’s exciting to write these things down. they are not resolutions but just ways for me to CREATE my space here in the world. Yea 2015… i’m coming for you… after i roll around with this little sweet man of mine!
What about you? What are ways you are CREATE– ing your little corner in the world.
