Every year for the new year, I don't really make "resolutions", but I pick a theme. And I spend my year trying to make sure that what I'm doing fits in that theme.
The last few years have been rough, with a lot of changes and ups and downs for us as a family and for me personally. I've lost sight of things that were important to me and brought me joy, I've said yes to things that were not a good idea, and we've been in survival mode a few times both physically and emotionally.
I've picked a few themes for the past two years but weren't able (or chose not to) stick to them for one reason or another. And now, at this place and time, on the edge of 30 and feeling like I'm finding myself over again and wanting to reset myself, I have chosen a theme that I think is going to be a beautiful reminder for me this year to do and act in a way that fits into these words.
2017: The year of Peace & Balance.
