This past year has been crazy. 2010 threw me more curve balls than I knew what to do with. I failed miserably at my 1 little word last year. It was organization. FAILED BAD! (if you are not familiar with 1 little word you can read it HERE on Ali Edwards blog--I have done it since the beginning).
This year is going to be different. I learned about my word before I chose it.
My word for this year is "PACE". I find myself trying to do too much and then being frustrated when I don't accomplish it all. I have recently finished a "Functional Rehabilitation Program" for the disk problems in my back. Between disk issues and severe arthritis I find myself not being able to move many days....especially cold New England days. The biggest part of the program was to PACE yourself. FRP taught me that I can have many GOOD days as long as I pace...something I struggle with daily. I think lots of moms do. We have so much to do and not enough hours in the day.
When I finished the FRP group I realized how many things I was accomplishing in a WEEK...not a day. It's because I PACED myself and made it happen in a time line that worked for me...no one else. It's my word...PACE and with it I know will come relaxation, organization and fulfillment.
Have you picked a word for this year? I would love to know it and why.
I have so much in store for this year creatively. I have fun things to share ahead and if all goes as planned (fingers crossed) I will have a new technique to share (via video tutorial) that I discovered with my Silhouette.
Happy New Year and may 2011 be everything you and your family want it to be.
BRING IT ON 2011! I'm prepared this time! :)
