Most of the time life is very organic and things that happen, happen naturally. I made the choice 3 years ago to start this blog but from that moment on, most of the events that have led to today have had a heartbeat of their own and have happened naturally without any real intention on my part.
However, with all of the challenges of juggling a family and our businesses, life has had to become very intentional. I now create space and time for things I haven’t in the past.
I create a positive attitude even when it’s been difficult.
I create time to sit down with our children to teach them how to draw their name or I create an evening that is carved out specifically for me and my paint brush.
I create time and shut the screens off of the phone and the computer to have intentional family time, or sometimes even “me” time.
I have 1001 things on my “to do” list, but I have been intentionally creating space for the things you don’t often find on one of those lists.
Therefore, my chosen word for 2014 is CREATE
. . . with my hands, my mind and my choices. I will create a life that is peaceful, kind to others, honoring to my family, fulfilling, and most of all, inspiring. I will create simply for the sake of creating.
Create. That is what I shall do.
