life is a matter of balance


I’ve been having a hard time in my life in recent months.  I knew something had to change.  I just wasn’t sure exactly what it was.  I have a lot on my plate. 

I am juggling more than I could ever imagine.  I have thought long and hard about the upcoming year and the word I was going to choose for it.  One day, just like that, it hit me.  Smack in the head, literally.  It’s a good thing too, since that’s probably the only way I would have even seen it. 

My word for 2014 is Balance.


Some things I have already done to help jump start this new “Year of Balance” are:

  • I revamped my planners and made the whole planning process simpler.
  • I cut back my hours at work.  I was just gone too much
  • My husband and I took a budgeting course that will hopefully help our budget balance better.  The substantial loss of income has hit us and we are looking to clear that up!
  • I am limiting myself and my family in the things we say “yes” to.
  • I made some screen time tokens for my children to help them balance their free time and the use of electronics.
  • I have been aiming for more balanced meals.
  • I joined a 1000 mile club at work to help balance a healthy lifestyle.

This is a whole work in progress and I realize that, so I don’t expect to be balanced just yet.

I am ready! 

Bring on the balance.
