A Long Time Comin'

And now, for my deep and thoughtful post about what tomorrow holds.

Usually, about this time of year I would write some good stuff about my new years resolutions. But I won't be doing that this year.

I have got an overwhelming year ahead of me and I don't think that I need to put pressure on myself to accomplish a set of 10 or so little resolutions.

That's not to say that I don't have high hopes for the coming year. I do, and there are certainly things that I am looking forward to.  It is going to be a big year of change and excitement. I will finally get to do things that have been a long time coming, and I can't believe how close I am to actually getting to do it!

I don't know how many times I've said this, but it's a lot, I'm sure of it. Life, seriously, comes at you so fast! There is no way to know what tomorrow may bring. Making big goals and shooting for the moon is great, but good heavens, so much stuff gets in the way of the big stuff.

So, instead of making big plans for the future, I've laid some ground work.  I've got some school applications in, I'm packing up my bedroom, and I'm moving on.

I'm leaving this life that I have now and creating a new one for myself.

I guess that sort of is my New Years resolution.

Start over. Be better. Be bigger. Be everything you ever wanted to be and more. Don't disappoint myself. Love myself. Keep my head up and smile. Take a step back and appreciate what I have instead of bitching over what I don't.  Embracing the suck and taking it all one day at a time, because that is all that I can do.

I resolve to be...Me.
 The very best possible version of...me.

I'm Katie. I'm a 20-something Soldier & student taking each day one step at a time. Living through all the growing pains that come with becoming that person that I always wanted to be & finding that bright side in all of this Camo-Colored Chaos. You can get to know more about me here.
