From time to time (typically around this time), I get an itch...an inkling...a feeling that this coming year is going to be a year to tackle something new, to break boundaries, to grow...and as such, I dub it, "The Year of Kelly."
It's not intended to be egotistical or ostentatious...just simply, an effort to bring awareness to change in my life.
And boy, am I ready for change. Now, that our youngest is a year old, I'm sleeping through the night and life looks bareable again, I've registered to run a half marathon on the morning of my 37th birthday.
I have lofty goals to grow my jewelry business.
And, I'm intent on writing as much as possible. I don't know what form this will take and at this point, I'm not too concerned, I just want to keep getting the voices out of head and onto paper (maybe, I should be checking into medication as well.)
It's a beautiful thing to start reinvesting in yourself. It feels liberating and scary all in the same breath.
As I approach 2012, I intend to take it slow...putting one foot in front of the other...or better yet, running one mile at a time, until one day, I find that I'm doing it. Embracing me.
