What fires you up???

These are things that I love, make me happy and FIRE ME UP!  I am printing this house to have next to my everyday list so I can look at it everyday and be reminded of these beautiful things!

What fires you up?

And to anyone interested, Lara Casey from Making Things Happen has a tumblr blog that she has been posting challenges everyday to help you make things happen.  It has helped me immensely to get more organized and focused in my everyday endeavors.  Especially as I try to balance motherhood, household, husband and business. 

I would love to hear how YOU find balance in your life.  I know many people who are mothers/small business owners.  Even if you are not, there must be a balance in our lives to stay sane.  Many days I don't feel sane or that I didn't accomplish anything, but I am working on it and trying to create new habits!  A few things that have helped me lately: 

* declutter for 10 minutes each day
* no computer while the kids are awake

So what fires you up?  How do you find balance?  I would LOVE to hear from you!

The past few weeks I've been all about to do lists - writing it down so I don't have to try and remember and then I get the joy that comes with crossing something off.

New pens. :) That's awesome. I really like that you wrote "giving birth", that's even awesome-r.

That's brilliant. I want to make something like that for myself.
