One Little Word - 2011

My word for 2011 is balance. 

If you work & study too much then your relationships suffer. Exercise too much and your body doesn't have time to recover. Play (or scrap) too much and your productivity suffers. Eat too much and you'll gain weight. Try too hard and your spontaneity suffers. And on and on and on.  This year I am going to try really hard to find the balance that suits me and my little family.

My goals this year are as follows:

  • lose the excess weight and get fit again - who's with me?
  • Get a cleaner so I have more time with the family
  • Don't forget any birthdays (this is a recurring goal)
  • Save for an overseas trip
  • Learn more about photography - I have loved learning about it and want to do more


  •  Finish my real estate licence before the end of the year rather than the time frame allowed.

  • This one is simple....make time to scrap
  • Get in front of the camera more

 All of these things require balance....what's your word for 2011????

Love the goals, they are all great and seem like they should bring balance in your life.

great word Shell and I love the photo you have chosen it speaks volumes!!!!!
BALANCE is such an important word and I love the way you have taken the meaning and applied it to your life.. I use affirmations each and every day.. My main affirmation is "I TRUST THE PROCESS OF LIFE" ..I FOLLOW THE BUDDHIST philosophy as much as possible and I believe everything happens for a reason and no matter what it is "ALWAYS" for my highest good..
take care and a big hug from me xo

I've never been able to settle on one word for Ali's project, it's just too hard for me to pick out. I keep joking that I should pick the word "indecisive"! Happy New Year!

Hi Shell, Happy New Year. I love your word and now that you are working, I can only imagine how hard it is to balance everything. I just love that pic. It is so calming. You could maybe print it and put it somewhere as a reminder...
My word is relax which is the same for 2010. I just didn't manage to do enough of it so I am going to try again in 2011.

Happy New Year Shell .... think New Years is a time when many of us end up reflecting on a whole basket full of things. My word this year is Patience. And believe me, that covers a WHOLE lot of things in my life!

Take care hun,
