January 4 question - Do you have a word of the year? Is there one word that sums up what you need to work on or change in the coming year? What is your word for 2023? Why?
(Really this is my word for this decade or even this life.)
I love to do, I love to learn, and I love to create. I love it so much I can't help myself. While I refuse to slow down--or lower my expectations for myself--I do want to become better at balancing all the things!
This doesn't mean I'm terrible at letting go. I feel like I am progressing toward mastery on this one! So I know that when things don't balance, I have to let something go.
Balance all the things.
Balance the things to keep and the things to let go.
Balance the desire for perfection and the realistic boundaries of time and capability.
Balance the moments for myself and the moments for others.
Yep, this is a good word.
(Also, I'm a Libra. Insert sarcastic "Surprise" here.)
