That 2015 word – perseverance


I picked a word for this year “perseverance“. I wrote about it here. I wanted to make 2015 not about trying to re-invent the wheel, but rather work hard at what I already know I can do.

I’ve had a rough January. I did not feel my best emotionally and it wasn’t due to any particular reason. I was teary, shouty, panicky, in bed (too much) and had a constant bitchy resting face. This time of the year is always a little unsettling. I work better when I have a routine in place. I work from home, so there is no holiday as such. I don’t “leave” the workplace for a 2 week vacation. It’s just still the same routine for me, except there are 4+ more people hovering around and eating all flippin’ day long…

But I’ve just come back from a 4 day break at the beach. About 30 of us all up… lots of laughs, french onion dip (yes, love that stuff) and beer. It was just what I needed.

Last night I crashed in to bed and had the best sleep ever…

So today I am full of beans. My emails are flowing and work is coming my way. I’m manifesting and I am going to work hard. I am persevering with what I know best.

Today I had a meeting with a PR lady and she asked me about some goals. I haven’t thought about them in a while, so I started writing them down. Feels good to have a bit of direction back.

School goes back tomorrow and my little people start new chapters. New teachers, new school (high school!) and no doubt new friends.

Life is good today. I’ll roll with that while I can!

I’m back in to the swing of things… blogging, fluffing around my home, buying flowers and taking photos.

Hope you’re feeling good? ♥ KC.

    Hi Katrina I love reading your blog it’s so honest which is great. I love the fact that what you write about is real life. I am a stay at home mum although all my kids are at school and one is married and left home 2 years ago. I have been out of the workforce for 20 years and for the life of me do not know what I want to do. I love interior design as I know you do and also love event planning. I also suffer from IBS and lost my mum to Colon Cancer 4 years ago. Keep talking real life as you are an inspiration. Loved you on the Block too xx

    Great word Katrina. I’m still trying to find mine. Something to do with non procrastination or just getting it done! Might need to read a thesaurus

    I love that you pick a word of the year too. Last year mine was Expansion, this year it’s Nurture. I really do feel you about working from home and kids and holidays. It can be really difficult to juggle, and I kid myself every school holidays that I will get some work done! When will I learn? That’s why I’ve gone with nurture this year, to give myself some leeway, and also look after every aspect of my life and business that does matter and that will flourish with some love and attention.
