The decorations are down, the first day back at work is complete, the house is tidy and here we are once again with a clean sheet spread out in front of us. As always in the new year, I think of things I want to achieve, I start planning (and plotting I'm like that) I sit back and admire what everyone is doing, all the challenges they are involved in, all the plans they have and think - I should do that, but then think I need to maintain a balance. So that's what I'm going to try and do.
Now the word balance is a curious one, I spend a lot of my time trying to work out what it exactly means, I'm the striver, the instigator, the noisy one in this household, said 11 year old and hubby often listen to me go off on a tangent and before they know it I'm moving the idea forward and we're on our way to sorting it, but often this means a singular, focused task and this year I need a little bit more balance. So I'm going to try balancing - it's probably going to turn into juggling and I'll probably drop the ball but balance is what I'm going to try and achieve.
So this weeks balance looks a little like this
- Go to the gym - 3 times
- Eat healthier (that's a whole other blog which if I get my finger out will come to fruition on a more regular, positive and spontaneous basis).
- Spend time with family
- Have more family walks
- Manage my crafting
- Blog a little
- Work enough to achieve but not enough to kill me off
- Improve my outlook by looking after my mind and soul a bit more (not sure how this is going to be achieved but it's a work in progress).
So there you go, a glimpse into my world at the moment, I'll let you know how I get on.
I'm still trailing behind on Darcy's 52 words but I intend on finishing this challenge regardless of how long it takes me. A bit like my Journal your Christmas which I've done in 2 sittings and is almost with the exception of yesterday and today up to date (I kid you not).
Now this is the word Invoke and quite honestly isn't one of my favourites in my book, but it's done and completed I think it's the fighting colours, or maybe the images, or the stamping - ah can't quite put my finger on it! But it did get me journaling the word!
Finally my question is - dare I share the word 'release' with you, I like the page but the picture is a little more risque than normal and I don't want to offend.
Let me know what you think?
