Last year I picked a word to live by, which was fearless. I felt like every time I rounded a corner, there was fear looking me right in the eyes. Thankfully, I learned to be a little braver, take more chances, not be so afraid of risks, and leap a little bigger. There were a lot of challenges thrown my way in the past tweleve months, and I feel like choosing fearless as a word to live by served me well. I brainstormed a bit about what I wanted word(s) I wanted for this upcoming year and I landed on two.
My words for 2013 are YES and HOPE. I want to be less afraid of the word yes. I think sometimes we live in a culture that says yes to everything and then we burnout as a result. I'm not talking about that kind of yes. I'm talking about being more open to opportunities and adventure and not saying no out of fear. I also choose hope because I think this year has proven just how fragile the world really is. I want to live in a way that both believes in hope as well as inspires hope in others.
This year I plan to write as many love letters and send them into the world as I possibly can.
