I finally decided on my word for the year yesterday.
I am a big scaredy cat. I fear a lot of things and I get scared to try new things. I like being in my comfort zone and I avoid anything outside of that. I don't like things that put me on edge or push me out of my self imposed boundaries. Whilst I was trying to think of all the new things that this time of year makes me want to try I realised that I won't be able to do anything if I'm always fighting them. If I am always scared.
So this year, I will be brave.
This year I turn 30 years old. I want to stop worrying about every little thing, all the tiny details that more often than not, I don't have control of anyway. I want to be adventurous. I want to embrace challenges and changes rather than resist them. I want to feel all the good things that this year has to offer but I also want to pay attention to the not-so-good parts. Both the good and bad have things that we can learn from them.
As I turn 30 I want to be brave.
