Ok. Here goes.
So the restless house wife, burdened believer, and natural day dreamer in me just has to break free.
And by break free I mean sit down.
I have toyed with writing and speaking for years. YEARS. I was born with too much passion and developed an awkward habit of over-emoting way before I knew what to do with either. One year ago, in order to deal with all the words and all the stories and all the emoting things swirling in my head I started this blog. I wanted to create, share, encourage, laugh, and build an environment that we could be relax in. This was my jam.
So I blogged like 5 times… and then decided I was shared out. Jam gets boring.
Actually, to my credit, it’s just flippin hard to get crap done that isn’t life or death when swimming in the deep end. Turns out raising little freaks of nature to be whole, responsible, and confident humans can derail me.
Actually, to my credit, it also turns out that thinking about deep things to write about and talking to myself in my head while drinking a nice cold dark mug of beer is FUNNER. Also, I hate… loathe… distain (insert all negative words here) sitting and concentrating. So many sticky wickets. ERR’WHERE.
I chose the word “intentional” to think over for 2016 because all the voices kept saying… “be more intentional”, “live with intention” and “intentional” here and there and everywhere. It was an Ol’McDonald/Dr. Suess/Holy Spirit annoying mesh up song stuck on, “Girl you need to get doing.”
And really, we all need to do hard things. We all need a challenge.
Our lungs need the smell of failing and success, vulnerability and confusion, discipline and intention as much as it needs each tiny whiff of oxygen.
So I am going to try because trying is all I got.
I’m launching with a newish design on my blog. I have a little bit of content here now and more I am working on. THE MOST FUNNEST THING EVER is that I want to launch robincatalano.com with a book GIVE A-WAY!!!!! FA-REE books coming YOUR way. Because we all need more words. Because free is ENORMOUS fun.
So…read this. Easy.
Then go to robincatalano.com and subscribe. Also easy
Then find all my spelling and grammatical errors and laugh. Also free.
Then share. Easy and free.
ON MONDAY….Melanie Dale’s “Women Are Scary” will be up for grabs to 10 subscribing friends that share Monday’s blog post!!! Melanie is a newish friend that came by way of an old friend and she will soon be YOUR favorite blog friend. She writes at unexpected.org SHE IS A HOOT-NANNY. I actually don’t know what a hoot-nanny is so she might not be that…but anyways…she is HILARIOUS. I can’t use enough capital letters to describe her. She talks about infertility and finding 3rd base with your girlfriends. Those two things aren’t supposed to sound like they go together like I just made them sound. #clickbait?
Cheers to February being the REAL START TO A NEW YEAR and cheers to beginning again and cheers to accountability and deadlines (gah!!!) and massive cheers to unconventional inspiration.
SEE YOU ALL MONDAY
P.S. I STILL spell February wrong. What the heck is up with that stupid “r”? hashtag spellcheck
