The last two years, I have chosen a word for the coming year. A word that I feel like encompasses what I wish to achieve for that year. I take a lot of time and pray about it for a few months before I choose it. My word for 2019 was Best, because I was really focusing on becoming the BEST version of myself in all areas of my life. I focused on becoming the best wife, mother, friend, daughter, sister, coach, and all around person I could be. And that’s where my word for 2020 comes along, because I didn’t always do the best job balancing all of those things out. I sometimes focused too hard on one area, and not enough on another. So, my word for 2020 is BALANCE.
2020 will be about finding balance between the many “hats” I wear while still working towards becoming the best woman I can be. Let’s face it, we can ALWAYS grow. That job is never finished. I looked up the definition of balance and it means an even distribution of weight enabling something or someone to remain upright and steady, OR a condition in which different elements are equal or in the correct proportions. This second definition describes it perfectly!
I loved this quote: “Balance is finding equilibrium between all of life’s activities so that you feel good all of the time” because I feel like it sums up exactly what I hope to accomplish this year. I know I won’t be 100% perfect all of the time, because that’s just not realistic. I am going to have bad days where I let one or all areas of my life slide because I’m just having a bad day. But I feel like there is a way to find balance between all of life’s activities to lessen the stress of everyday life.
So, here’s to 2020 and finding balance. I hope you meet all of your goals and then some, and I hope to come back here next year and be able to say I figured it out! (For the most part anyway) May you have the best year ever, and an even better decade than the last!
