Word of the Year-Balance

One word.

To inspire a year.

To keep in mind during my daily life.

To keep me grounded.

To motivate me.

To strive for.

To keep me in check.


Its perfect for me, right now, for 2012. Its so hard to be everything to everyone. I cant possibly have it all, all the time, and wishing for that will leave me feeling unaccomplished.

If I focus myself on one aspect of my life 100% then all the rest suffers. And I suppose that's true with anyone, right? Instead I need to divide my time reasonably, and try to find a balance that makes this life as joyful as possible.

Finding the balance is probably one of the most difficult things to achieve. So that's why I think its a good word for the whole year. Its such an important idea, to create balance in your life. It can be selfish or selfless it can be physical or emotional, balance has so many possibilities.

So not only will I be sharing this word here, and at TLC today, but I'm also going to be thinking about some concrete ways to let this word actually affect me this year. I'll be trying to implement some things into my every day life that helps to achieve the balance that I'm looking for, and I hope to share them here to help everyone else who's looking for a more balanced life.

I hope you'll become a follower if you too are searching out a more balanced life

I'm linking up to TLC's link party. I hope you all jump in on the fun.
