Hello, Friends! It has been almost a year since my first blog post. I thought it would be a good time to re-introduce myself. I’m Katie. Well, technically on official documents I’m Kathleen … but no one ever calls me that. Every first day of the year in my little elementary school, when the teacher ran down her list of names, my classmates would look around for the new kid when she said “Kathleen.” Everyone has always known me as Katie.
The phrase “Jack of all Trades, Master of None” fits me in so many ways. I am a runner and have been since high school. I was even the Captain of my college cross-country team. But, it was a D3 school and I never won a single race. Middle of the pack … consistently. Solid emotional and spiritual leader of the team … absolutely. But winner? That only happens occasionally now if you count the fact that I may be the only female in my age group in smaller events!
I am re-learning Spanish after having taken several years in high school and several semesters in college. Can I pick up on a lot of words and phrases? Yep. Could you drop me off in Barcelona and expect me to manage. Not a chance!
Skiing, playing guitar, drawing, cooking, rock climbing, raising our biological son, keeping my house clean, white-water kayaking, training our dog, foster parenting, sewing, singing, gardening … all things I am competent in, but certainly not winning any awards.
The one thing that I can confidently call myself an expert in is health coaching. But I’ll save that topic for next time!
I’d love to hear from you. What do you consider yourself an expert in? What do you do exceptionally well?
