It’s that time of year again…the time when we reflect on the past year and look forward to what’s to come in the brand new shiny year ahead of us. We talk about what we learned from the previous 365 days while setting goals to improve ourselves.
A few years ago, some friends decided to select a personal #Themeword each year instead of a resolution. A word to give us hope and remind us of what we think is important to focus on. My themeword from 2012 was Passionate and while I didn’t remind myself of this word throughout the year, I do believe it was an theme in many areas of my life. Truth be told, I couldn’t even remember what my word was until today when I tried to remember what it was.
I believe that I’m at a place in my life now where I am passionate about what I’m doing in life. This has been a constant reminder for me over the past few years as I hope everyone can always be passionate about what they are doing in life. If you can make money while doing your passion, that’s a freaking bonus! Bottom line…love what you’re doing and if you’re not loving it, then move on to something else.
This past year has been one of highs and lows and includes starting an event production company that has been very successful. I’m creating the business and life that I’m passionate about and it’s an amazing place to be. I’ve worked hard to get to this point and look forward to what 2013 has in store for me.
So why “balance” for my themeword this year? As I’ve started the business, I’ve really focused on making sure that I have a good work/life balance and am making sure that I’m keeping myself as a top priority. But more than work/life balance, I really want to work on things like fitness, eating healthy, staying educated, and challenging myself. This is quite a list and will definitely require balance of my schedule, my thoughts, and my intentions in order to enhance the life I want to live.
Here’s to a year full of balance!
