My Word... Focus

So, I've decided to make my word for the year "Focus". There are so many things I need to remember to focus on. 

I need to focus on trusting myself and my decisions.
I need to focus on finding my personal creativity.
I need to focus on Fred and on what will teach him to be stalwart and strong.
I need to focus on Steve and his ideas (and trust his ideas will actually work).
I need to focus on our goals and ideas ... and not let them slide as I tend to normally do.
I need to focus on the things I know will make me a better person.
I need to focus on the Lord and in His plans for me - no matter how inconvenient or time consuming I think they are. I know that this will make me a better person.
I need to focus on finding balance in my life.

There are many many other things I need to focus on. I also need to have faith, make changes, find balance,  and more. All of these ideas and goals can be tied into focus in one way or another. 

So... focus is is! 

With that, there are a few things I'd like to do or accomplish in this new year. I'm not setting them as official "goals", but in reality that's what they are. Some of them are below...

~ I want to do something creative every day. EVERY day.
~ I want to become more skilled at digital scrapbooking.
~ I want to lose the remaining 15 pounds I gained during my pregnancy.
~ I want to get back into being more focused on being healthier. We need to set a good example for Fred!
~ I want to actually stick to the financial budget whether it be our family grocery budget, or my personal spending budget.
~ I want to finish decorating our home in a way that I like and find attractive.
~ I want to spend more time creating with my friends, and enjoying their company.
~ I want to do my job at work, but not be a workaholic or feel that I can't leave.
~ I want to share my love of creating and cooking with others.
~ I want to be better at maintaining family ties with all of my families... my side, Steve's side, and my biological side.

Gosh.. I could go on for hours with what I would like to do in 2009... really the year is new and fresh and there are so many possibilities. I can't wait to see what has actually transpired at the end of it!

I gotta get busy. You have a word, Alisa has a word. Gina's thinking of one. I'll have to think and get back to you. :)

I read your e-mail about the crown class at the Red Shed. Do you think that is something we could figure out ourselves?
