I have never done the whole word of the year before. I didn’t really see the point but this year it just happened. I had seen them on other blogs and always enjoyed reading the whys of the word they had selected. So, when I told myself that this year I would not do any resolutions I knew I still needed some sort of motivation for the year. Something that gave me a purpose of doing all the million things that I do each and year day and for all those things to have meaning. That is when the word hit me.
This year I want to have balance in everything I do. To be able to balance work and family life along with having a bit of a social life as well. Balance in the way my day-to-day activities go. I can tell you that so far this have been a bit more hectic than balanced but it is something that I strive for daily. I want to come to day 365 and know that I did my best each day to live a balanced life. That I gave it my all and can look back on the year and have few regrets. Finding balance hasn’t come easily for me and I will continue to struggle with it because I have a real hard time saying no or always taking on too much for myself but I am going to try.
