My thoughts at the end of this year are going toward balance. Finding balance in my life, in all things. It may sound vague and lofty, but when applied to every detail, it is not a big blanket thought, but a series of small goals that I need and want to incorporate into all that is me.
In trying to focus on accomplishing what I feel is at the top of my priority list at any given time, I can easily lose balance with all other pieces of life that are important, though perhaps not as urgent. In the end, I put things off...seeming to be a procrastinator, when I am not. I just lose balance...for too long of a time to please myself.
So, when I am busy working eleven hour days, I will still make time to exercise my body.
When I am stressed, I will not accomplish more work for someone else every time, but will
find a quiet moment to breathe, focus, meditate, pray, read or write in my journal.
I signed up for Kelly Kilmer's "A Life Made By Hand" online journal prompt class yesterday.
I started riding my exercise bike again yesterday and lifting my weights-it felt great.
I run my puppy and smile at the simple things.
"You must learn to be still in the midst of activity, and to be vibrantly alive in repose".
I pray for peace....for you, your family, your loved ones in the armed forces.
And, if it's lofty, I hope & pray for peace for this world of ours.
Peace and love to you in 2010. ~K
