Before I talk about my word for this year, I want to reflect back on last year. My word was "Balance." I worked hard to achieve more balance in my life. And for the most part, I have done okay. I mostly needed to balance my hobby with my other responsibilities and with my family. I have developed a signal to myself so when I got to sit on the computer, I say something like, "Nope, this is a time to be with your family." It has worked pretty well...
which brings me to my new word.
Balance is only good if you are consistent. Meals only get cooked when you plan accordingly. Friendships are maintained through frequency. Exercise only works when you do it regularly, kids only understand and meet expectations when they have been communicated clearly and followed through with consistency. With conscious and consistent effort, moods can become more even and predictable.
I am a Libra, folks...I need consistency. But I don't have it, which makes me live far off from my center. So this year, I will focus on consistency. It is going to take effort, tracking. I forsee lots of pep talks and reminders to myself. I will explore my feelings, progress and reflections here. Because it holds me accountable. Like any committment, it will take work. But...it will be worth it!
I want to live this life fully, have healthy and beautiful relationships, have a strong mind, body and soul. Consistency will get me there!
Now that I have shared my word of the year, let me know what yours is too!
