Finding the Balance...

When I started this blog I had the tagline "Finding the balance while fitting the clutter".
As I think about my New Year's resolutions I'm finding "clutter" seems to be a constant theme.
So for 2011 I've decided to declutter the following:
my mind, my body and of course my home
I've spent the past two days starting to clean out the closest that are used to "hide" stuff when we "clean". I'm so over the stuff. I've already got bags for Goodwill and even my Christmas stuff is going to be pared down as I pack it away. If I don't love it, its gone.
As for the old body, well, that is as always a work in progress. The plan is to step up the workouts. I'm doing another Tri this summer and my goal is to finish in enough time to do the kid tri with Sammie (she doesn't know this yet) I'm also going to be more mindful of what we eat ~ that means more veggies (Ben and Sam are thrilled with this one).
Last up, the mind. Basically, I'm going to try and be more "half full" and not awfullize.
I know those seem kind of vague, but that is my starting point. I have more specific ways I want to achieve these and I will share those in later posts. Hopefully, as I work on these aspects the balance I seek will come.
Wishing you all the best for 2011

No matter if some one searches for his essential thing,
thus he/she needs to be available that in detail, therefore that thing is maintained over here.
