I've thought about this over the past few days and nothing seemed to click. "Simplify" sounds great but in reality, some of the things I love the most in life wouldn't exist if I simplified my life and did away with them...(growing roses, the upkeep of living in an old house, raising ducks, adding special touches here and there). It's just not me to simplify! I thought of "Today" or "Fit" or "Joy"...but none of them summed up the big picture for me.
And then I found it...One word that captures it all...It encompasses all of the little resolutions together...
I'm going to balance my "to do's" with my "want to do's" and my "need to do's". Ta doo, ta doo, ta doo! (couldn't resist adding that)
The little things that all fall under the category of creating Balance in my life are:
taking time to be kinder and more attentive to my children and husband
taking the time for myself
taking the time for exercise
taking the time for serving
taking the time for expressing gratitude to others
taking the time for pondering
taking the time for spiritual growth
Wish me luck in my journey! Welcome, 2009! I've been expecting you!
