There are four main aspects in our lives that we generally try to "balance": Social, Physical, Educational (Mental), and Spiritual.
More specifically in my life, I want harmony between these different aspects of my life:
Breaking those down even more specifically:
Family = Healthy relationships with Husband, children, bro-in-laws
Church = Responsibilities, Spirituality
Friends/Family = building, strengthening healthy relationships with by visiting/writing/calling
Work/Income = Cam's work, Photography, MaryKay
Home/House = daily straightening, deep cleaning, meals, environment
ME= ALL OF THESE THINGS!
What does your list look like? I'd bet it looks pretty similar.
Now that I have things written out, I will have to break them down even more. And find out which things are not in harmony and how I will change them so they can be.

I don't know where it originated from or how wide-spread this yearly tradition is, but right now we are planning ours. What are some successful projects you have seen or done? This is one that I am really hoping we are able to do:

"The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. "

I finally came across an image that I really really like. I finally see a connection between RPatt and the Edward in my mind...
Here it is. Tell me what you think!
See 100 New Moon stills HERE.
So what did I do?
I put on some PCD, Beyonce, Brittany and was a Rock Star. It was silly. It would have been embarrassing if anyone had seen me... but it was a BLAST! I used to do that sort of thing all the time when I was in my pre-teens and teens... but it's honestly been YEARS and it felt GOOD! haha. I've still got it. But you are never going to see it! No sirree. And then what did I do after I was feeling young, hip and pretty? I had a little photo shoot of myself... with my trustee iphone. So. Professional. (not.)
I'll be honest, I'm back to my pre-pregnancy weight (#2 pregnancy) and it feels great! It feels good to like what I see. It feels good to know that my husband likes what he sees. It feels good to know that I could probably be a rock star if I sold my soul - but I won't. I am happy being a mom. I am happy being a wife. I am happy being me.
It was fun while it lasted. It was a self-esteem booster. But I know that true happines doesn't come from good looks and hot moves. It doesn't come from being desired or loved by the world.
My happiness is rooted in my healthy marriage. It's rooted in having the knowledge I have of the bigger plan. It is rooted in knowing what is truly important. It is rooted in making choice NOW that will bring me eternal joy beyond this life.
Funny how something so silly had such a lesson behind it!
