I started "katiemaedays" as a journal on mama-life, photography and gratitude. I've gone through periods of writing consistently and then not. This past year would fall under the category of, not. I was busy launching a coaching practice and completing coach certification training and well going through my own personal evolution. Exciting stuff I tell you.
In the last couple of months though, I felt the pull to revive "katiemaedays" and its in this space in particular I'm noticing the evolution of both the blog and me. What I used to write about though still close to my heart is not necessarily what I want to write about now or perhaps better said in the same way.
Truthfully, some of my writing has felt contained and forced on occasion. Not purposely. I notice that I have held back sometimes from letting myself write freely in effort perhaps to try and make this blog something it isn't meant to be. I wasn't always clear as I pushed the blog forward just what it was meant to be? A mommy/photography blog? Hmmmm. Well, I stopped trying to figure it out and just listened to me on the inside. And what I know is I love to write about life.
So here it is in a nutshell, I am a Coach. I love my work. How delicious it is to get to be with people in their journey, to connect with my clients to create the life they dream. I've spent the last year on my own personal evolution and now it feels like I've let my full self out to play. I like to write about this coaching stuff and I'm figuring its high time to create a blog for this space in my life. So, while I'm not retiring katiemaedays forever, I'm letting her be for a little while. I'm grateful for the writing and photography and connections that have led me here and the living proof of where I've been.
In the meantime, I'm co-authoring another blog with a very dear friend of mine called "The Designer and the Coach. thedesignerandthecoach.wordpress.com. Here, she and I write about whatever we feel like which is a blast.
I like to write and I am committed to practicing through these new projects. Thank you for reading "katiemaedays" and thanks for following me to what's next. I'll continue to post here every now and then but for now, please, come on over and say hello in these new spaces.
