I’m not a fan of New Year’s resolutions. I like to have goals and ideas of what I want to accomplish and I’ll even make lists, but I’ll do this often and not just for the opening of the New Year. An old friend passed on a good idea on Facebook that I think is not only doable, but inspiring. The goal is to pick one word to focus on for the new year and let that be your inspiration in everything that you do.
I picked balance, not because I don’t feel balanced, but because I think it’s so important to have balance in my life both emotionally and physically. Physically, I need to work on balance exercises to keep the bones in my feet strong so they don’t break again. And of course, the balance of training and having fun. Having fun and being serious is something I also need to balance. Managing the balance of intensity and stress of work is important too. After surfing in Costa Rica I’m balancing better on my surfboard as you can see as well. So therein lies the theme of balance in every aspect of my life. I’m looking forward to an amazing 2014!
Please think about your one word inspiration for the New Year and post it here, not only for your own inspiration but for everyone to be inspired too!
