I always tell people I got "the talk" from my parents at 10 years old, by my Dad having me watch American Pie with him. ... It's a half-truth. I mean my parents actually gave me "the talk", on two separate occasions, by trapping me in a car. (Again, not REALLY "trapping" me, just deciding that while we're taking a 30-minute drive and I can't escape, let's just talk about this. Great parenting technique, FYI -- effective, and memorable for your kids.)
10 Pages Daily
"... Reading just 10 pages a day will average 3,650 pages a year, which equates to approximately eighteen 200-page personal development/self-improvement books!" - Hal Elrod, The Miracle Morning
Instagram vs TikTok
I don't enjoy being the center of attention. When I started my new career path of life coaching, the advice I received from EVERYONE (a dozen different coaches) was "put yourself out there on social media". This was June 2020 ... it took me six months to find my groove, and it's still a work in progress.
Off the top of my head, I can think of five hockey games I've seen live -- one being an NHL game (Vancouver Canucks versus Edmonton Oilers, December 26th 2009!).
2021 and Hopeful
Dear Future Kaitlyn, It's crazy to be writing to my January 1st 2022 self already, especially since 2020 brought us so many unknowns! But, here we are, 2021 and hopeful.
Listen to the Mirror
Listen to the mirror -- The mirror speaks truth, your ears cannot fathom. The mirror sees things, your eyes play tricks.
I can't remember the last time I've been able to play D&D -- it's probably been a couple of years now. I'm watching Critical Role, campaign 1 episode 1 ("Arrival at Kraghammer") as I'm typing this. I miss playing so much!
My Dream Trips
My boyfriend is half Danish and half German -- all four of his grandparents were born in Europe! He has distant relatives there still, his parents have visited their parents' homelands, but my boyfriend hasn't had the chance to go yet.
