focus

IMG_1013This year I resolved to be more focused. Just like you, I have a million responsiblilities and a billion "should-do" thoughts that buzz through my head ALL DAY LONG. Frankly, it's annoying. It's frustrating. It's paralyzing. After reading through a few books, I began to realize my problem wasn't lack of motivation, but focus. I hadn't really asked myself what I wanted to do. I hadn't really thought through what was realistic for me to achieve. I spent most of Christmas break this year asking myself some tough questions. I still don't have many answers, but I know what I am focusing on this year.

  • my family
  • my home
  • my creativity

I want to do less, but with GREAT intensity. I can't do it all. The dishes may have to sit in the sink and the beds may go unmade. I am learning to let some things go. I am choosing focus over perfection. I am choosing relationships over tasks. I am choosing to dream instead of analyze.

What are you choosing to focus on this year?
