Balance – That was my word of 2012.

I’m not sure how I did seeking balance last year. Some weeks were certainly better than others.

I thought about choosing a new word for 2013, but nothing seemed right until this morning.

I had an early morning conversation with my good friend, Caryn, during which I realized a personal weakness that I need to work on. I was discouraged and questioned my value in this space.

Instead of being disappointed about the opportunities and jobs and skills and luxuries that I don’t have, I need to have more faith in myself. I need to believe once again.

The word Believe was on my mind all day, as I worked, as I made dinner, and as I helped my kids with their homework tonight.

And so it is that Believe is my word for 2013.

I believe that 2013 will be an incredible year. I believe that I can accomplish so much this year. I believe in me.
