just a few projects i did this last year.
you can find all of them here
this last year i made my word “consistency” i wanted to make sure that i worked on being a better person all around. not just in the things that i liked but in the things that i struggled with. the word consistency also gave me the opportunity to be more balanced. i focused on relaxing and being silly, while trying to teach my children structure in daily work and organizing. i also was able to consistently try to push myself to create new things, enjoy quiet time, and focus on spirituality. i also started to look at my diet and exercise as a more long term lifestyle than a weekly deal. i’ve realized that “consistency” was a wonderful word for 2010. it helped me to at times stop, re-think, and re-direct or continue on my tracks. i kind want this next years word to do the same for me as last year’s word did.
so with much consideration (and thanks for your word suggestions and the words you have already chosen) i’ve decided to choose the word HEALTHY.
i want to work on myself, my relationships, my spirituality, and my creativity… in a healthy way.
healthy means picking the important things in life and sticking to them, it means stepping back and counting to 10 when all you want to do is give them a good whack and a “what the___?”, (kidding on the whack please don’t call cps on me), healthy means working on reading scriptures, healthy means not eating a whole package of something just because it said “low fat”, healthy means saying sorry, healthy means getting outside and enjoying the air and grass beneath your toes, healthy means…well, a lot of things…but what it means mainly to me is moving forward in becoming something closer to the potential of what i have of becoming, probably not in this life…but what the heck, might as well keep trying.
and with all that trying to become healthier in 2011…maybe i can be a smidgen of a good example to my kids…or if not a good example…a fair warning…
happy new year.
here’s to another good learning year.
we’ll talk soon.
ps thanks for the love on the bangs and hair. 🙂
