What's In A Word

Once again we are ending a year. Another 'new' just around the corner. And just like clockwork, we all begin to make our lists in attempts to develop a self-perfection-prophesy. All of the bad things we will stop doing and all of the good things we will start doing. Quit Smoking! Lose Weight! Be More Successful!

No matter what is on the list, one thing remains true ... Very few of us will stick to it for even a week. (Myself included.)

So, this year I have decided to try something new. An idea I had heard about. Instead of trying to come up with a grand plan to change or better my life. I will bring it down to just one word. A single word, which will apply to various aspects of my life, which I will commit to. (For at least a week!)

Now the hard decision of which word it should be. I have thought about what is ultimately my goal... and I think at the end of the day I want what we all want. Just to be happy. So, the question is how... and the answer is balance.

Balance in my life. In order to achieve this, there must be a common thread, and to me that thread is Health. A healthy physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, social, family - life.

So, I will strive to achieve this by making 'Healthy' choices for each aspect of my life. And if successful, there will be balance.

Sound like a plan?

2011 ... Here I come!
