As my 100th post approaches, I find myself looking for words to share and gifts to give in celebration.
My blogging buddy, Pam at Frippery, is doing the same thing. It seems many of us joined the Land of Blog around the same time and our 100th posts are close to each others. Today, Pam shared some wonderful goals for herself this year. She aspires to Be Real, to Participate and to Create more.
While considering Pam's aspirations, I thought of my own. Let's see. Balance. I find myself in need of balance. Many of you are a spouse, a parent, a business owner, have full time jobs, hobbies, etc. I envy those of you who strike a balance and stay sane. I often feel scattered. So, my goal is to seek and achieve balance.
To achieve this, I need more Discipline. I sometimes while away my morning in front of the computer when I could be doing laundry, paying bills, chores, etc. Having more discipline might assist me in achieving more balance.
Next, I'd like to have more Organization. With better organization, wouldn't balance be easier? Less clutter. As my latest Country Home mag says "Live with what you Love and get rid of the rest." Makes sense. Read Erin's blog on Stuff to see how I am feeling. And yet, some stuff has to go!
Have no worries. I don't intend to kill myself to "get there". But, I will write these 3 words down and look at them with frequency. My mind works well with such a visual reminder. Many times for me, it is merely the acknowledgement of needs that helps me in achieving goals.
You are welcome to share any ideas you might have in striking a balance, maintaining discipline and/or becoming more organized. I'd like to hear how you do it! Or, feel free to share your own goals and aspirations.
Now, to the matter of a prize. Hmmm...I still have no clue what I will give to you in celebration of my 100th post. But, I'm sure something will come to me. Stay tuned!
