Focus on Life Week 2

52 week badge
This is the second week for the Focus on Life photo challenge. This weeks prompt is "My Word". I thought long and hard and decided to make BALANCE my word for 2013.

bal·ance

  [bal-uh ns]  Show IPA noun, verb, bal·anced, bal·anc·ing.
noun
1.
a state of equilibrium or equipoise; equal distribution of weightamount, etc.
2.
something used to produce equilibrium; counterpoise.
3.
mental steadiness or emotional stability; habit of calm behavior, judgment, etc.
4.
a state of bodily equilibrium: He lost his balance and fell down the stairs.
5.
an instrument for determining weight, typically by the equilibrium of a bar with a fulcrum at thecenter, from each end of which is suspended a scale or pan, one holding an object of known weight,and the other holding the object to be weighed.

Number 3 of the definition is my goal for this year. I want to obtain Balance in many ways. I would love to better balance my time between family and friends, housework and hobbies, happiness and sadness. I chose a picture from my archives that I though best represented my word. Have a great week.

So nice to find another soul on a similar trajectory! Balance is my word as well and we have a similar picture! Funny how great minds think alike. ;-)
I know that this word will be a constant struggle for me as I tend to live in one swing of the pendulum or the other, never in the middle, always out of whack. I am struggling with this already. But I know it is right for me to get back on track and be the very best of who I can be. Glad to know there is someone else on this same journey. I wish you joy in the journey in 2013. Enjoy the day.
