Happy New Year!

I always get antsy around the New Year. I see it as a new beginning. A clean slate. I want to do new things, learn new subjects, tackle new projects, create new things. The trouble is that I have no idea what those new things are. Therefore I end up, antsy. 

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. 

“Don't be afraid of your fears. They're not there to scare you. They're there to let you know that something is worth it.”

  1. Love your post. Love the quote. I was looking back on my words for the last few years - seek(2012) - move(2013) - courage(2014) - and realise that they've helped me so so much, to move from where I was to where I am. Being braver may not be an overnight thing for you but if you let your word guide you, I'm sure it'll steer you in the right direction.


Thank you for taking the time to read and comment! I read every single message that is left for me and try to respond to everyone :)
