Setting Goals and Creating Balance in 2014!

New year, new projects! I plan to accomplish a lot with our home this year, but please don’t look back at last year’s list… I was going to incorporate it into this post, until I realized I didn’t accomplish any of the house projects I set out to accomplish! Big let down. So I hope this year will be different, or maybe it will not. Many of my blog friends have decided to use their own word to drive their motivations this year, as opposed to the usual ‘resolutions’ buzz word we always hear but don’t like! I decided to jump on that idea as well. For me, my word for 2014 will be balance. I am going to take charge of all of my ideas and start putting them into a plan of action, but also put things into perspective that it will get done at some point! I want to paint the furniture I have been meaning to paint and finally take that new sprayer out of the box. I plan to get our office into a presentable state {I did actually paint the entire room this year, including the trim work! Now why didn’t I put that goal on last year’s list??} I also want to make business changes and grow this blog to what I know it can become.

What a great way to organize lists and daily office papers!!

However, I also want to achieve balance in the new year and not get so bogged down by lists, but step back and realize what is truly important. Our recent trip to Italy made everything so clear… I want to be successful in my business and grow, but I also love the way things are now and the availability that my current business allows for time with family. I realized there is no rush and that good things do come to those who wait. Our house projects will get done and the business will grow when the time is right. But for now, I have to let go a bit and achieve that balance. I don’t want to look at a list of projects and become let down when I didn’t do the items on that list. Maybe we all sometimes get caught up in what we should be doing, what needs to happen ‘now’ and shift focus negatively to what we didn’t accomplish. For me, when I finally step back and give things time, that’s probably when the most productive ‘me’ comes alive! So for now, instead of getting bogged down by lists of what has to get accomplished this year, I am just going to be  :)

Such a great quote and a beautiful view!
