You might remember that I chose "Accomplished" as my word for 2013 and that I mentioned how powerful it was to me. I have been very happy with how much I am getting done and the feelings that go with not giving up. I find that I'm wasting less time and always thinking of what else I can do or how I can make something better.
My husband and I talk about it a lot. He likes to tease me about how he's getting dragged along for the ride as I ask him for help with projects around the house. :) He feels good about doing more too though so it's not a problem. The issue that I'm having now is figuring out how to balance my design business, family, caregivng and home projects. There is so much that I want to do that I get a little scattered. I need to find focus for one direction at a time. I guess the best thing I can do is to just keep working at it...and to do the best I can each day, each hour and each minute.
This picture of an orchid (taken at the Flower Show last year) with it's delicate flowers balancing at the end of fragile stems gave me encouragement that balance can create awesome changes in my life.
If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. Henry David Thoreau
