And The Winner Is...
And while all of these are great themes, and I pondered them each carefully, I have chosen "Follow Through" as my theme for 2011.
See, I have a problem following through. As I sit in my unfinished 'office/craft room' I am surrounded with projects that are only partly finished. Books that are almost read. Lists that have things not crossed off.
I have lots of ideas. Some of them are stupid and I should just not even bother. They end up being clutter, for my mind.
But some of them are actually good. And I should follow through. But why don't I? Fear. Lack of confidence. Wrong motivation (which is perfectly legitimate reason to not follow through).
So all of this brings me to my theme of FOLLOWING THROUGH. Which means I am going to think about my ideas, decide which ones are actually doable, be honest about which ones I will really do (and are worth my time), consider my motivation and then (dot, dot, dot) do them.
I believe 'Follow Through' will actually bring me the other things I considered:
Simplicity ~ I have many great ideas about organizing and making my life easier. When I follow through on those, things will be much simpler.
Health ~ I have decided that taking care of my body is VERY important. When I follow through on the things I know I should do, I will be healthier.
Peace ~ Sweet peace. We all yearn for it, but do things daily that contradict it. When I follow through with ideas for physical projects, mental and emotional nurturing, and spiritual growth, I will be more peaceful.
