“When you are consciously aware of all that you have to be grateful for, your life is in perfect harmony.” ~ Hal Elrod
Instead of setting resolutions that I will never keep, I’ve been setting one-word resolutions each new year.
My one-word resolution this year is harmony.
Harmony (noun) the quality of forming a pleasing and consistent whole
Seeking Work-Life Harmony
My goal for 2024 is to aim for harmony rather than balance.
This whole work-life balance perception that you only live outside of work and you stop living when you work feels wrong.
For me, “work” and “life” are very intertwined.
Work-life harmony is about finding a way to weave together the different aspects of my life and creating a greater sense of wellbeing in all things I do.
For me, a harmonious life is about taking care of my body, filling my day with joyful interactions, being a creative marketer, doing what needs to be done, and connecting with nature.
2024 will be about making choices that are right for me, and setting priorities so work and life are in harmony.
Living in Harmony with People
Living in harmony isn’t about trying to change people in my life or trying to make them see my point of view.
Living in harmony is about understanding myself better and understanding other people better.
It’s also about getting along with those in my life. That might mean letting some people go while welcoming new people in.
Living in Harmony with Nature
Nature has always been a big part of who I am, and will continue to be. I am always thoughtful of the well-being of our planet, and I respect the animals and plant life around my home.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
