Wow! How in the world do you pick that word? I just go by my intuition and let it just come to me. This word was loud and clear and no other word will do! Its BALANCE.
Last year got a bit out of control due to my imbalance. Everything kind of fell apart because all I focused on was my art business. This year I am off to a great start and plan to be conscious
of how I spend my time. Weekends will not be consumed with art but rather family, friends and other hobbies. I'm taking in more movies with my girls, shopping on a whim and having dates with the husband. AND I am only 13 days into the new year:)
