In January, I said my year theme for 2014 was Possibility. I thought it would be good to do a little mid-year check in to see how I'm doing with that. Possibility was about embracing the changes before me. There were those anticipated - motherhood and marriage. Obviously, I've hit a few stumbling blocks in each area. There is a big learning curve. I think I'm being the best mother to Chase I can be. I would never have qualified as the most patient person but with him, it is great. I adore his little face and rejoice in each morning with him. My marriage doesn't feel that much different than co-habiting, just a bit more formal. Well, and there's the name change. I ultimately decided to change my last name to make it easier on the kiddo down the road.
There's a lot more possibility too.... with a new kitchen, I'm cooking more and we've hosted a few parties. The kitchen and open floor plan make that more feasible. There are new and revised friendships... things that have evolved post-baby or or being resurrected. There has been some crafting.
Possibility is definitely happening. Although, I will admit, I'd like to see myself embrace it even more for the second half of the year and really shake things up and make things happen. Fingers crossed I do!
