The word I chose for 2015 is balance. This year I want to focus on creating balance in my life so that I can be healthier, calmer and happier. It is hard for me to admit it but I am a workaholic. I work hard and rest only comes if and when the work is done which as a mother of three is pretty much never. I get a lot done but I am not better off in the long run. For me balance means taking better care of myself. It means sitting down to eat breakfast in the morning, resting for a period of time each day, getting regular moderate exercise, feeling alright with saying no when necessary and asking for help when I need it. These things are not easy for me but I am ready for change. I know that the benefits of living more balanced will far outweigh what I’ve got going on right now.
And so, I look forward to a 2015 where there will be much time visiting family and friends, working in the garden and kitchen, adventuring near and far, making soap and other things and much more… all with a healthy does of balance of course!
And looking back over the last few years:
