I resolve to avoid resolutions, because I'm complete crap at keeping them and I lose track of what I've resolved to do in the first place (unless I write it down), which exemplifies why I need to make an exception this year and make one, eensy resolution.
I need balance.
Oh holy hell, do I need balance.
I can't properly explain how disorganized my world has become since making the leap to self-employment. I'd imagine that the inside of my brain looks like our kitchen table, which is overflowing with mail, paperwork that needs to be sorted, and the rogue Thomas the Tank Engine train. (He's the cheeky one.) I need to find some balance and organization in this work-from-home house with two self-employed writers who travel for business often and are raising a very fast and chatty two year old. Because I sure don't have any semblance of balance now. How is it possible that I can stare at the computer screen for an hour without writing a single productive word, and yet I can see more than my fair share of .gifs of cats playing Jenga? How scattered are my brain cells, and how do I corral them and trick them into doing something useful?
With the start of 2013 just a few hours away, I'm ready to find out what exactly is lurking on my kitchen table. I'm looking forward to spending more time with my family this year. I'm excited to grow my business. And I will continue to focus on maintaining my health.
All of this, of course, after I watch this amazing reindeer .gif one more time.
A happy and safe new year to you!
