2013: The Year of Being Fearless

The other day, Amanda, at Run to the Finish posted an article, Can One Word Change Your Year? about using one word as your New Year’s theme or resolution. I read the article and liked everything she had to say but I didn’t really think I could boil my resolution to one word. I already had my New Years post drafted and was putting the finishing touches on it. But I couldn’t stop thinking about my list. And the post. My list. And the post.

I thought about how the “resolutions” (i.e. goals) are the same ones I’ve had for over ten years. The same goals I’ve had since I was thirty. The same goals that swirl in my head. Never changing. Never going away. But never acted upon. Then it hit me in the shower this morning. The same place where Einstein, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Jack LaLanne got all of their best ideas. Okay, there’s no proof of that but I’m quite confident it’s true. What am I afraid of?

What if I were…


So instead of posting a super long list, the list I have memorized, I’m going to focus on one thing only. Focus on being fearless.

What is your one word this year?

    Love your word. Mine is going to be “Be strong,” but if I would have thought of it earlier it would be fearless.

    Good luck and have a great New Year. Can’t wait to follow your progress.

    I LOVE your word! I can agree with you that sometimes I don’t try things for the fear of failure. I can only imagine where I would be if I hadn’t had that fear! My word for the year is “anew”. I’m planning to have an entire new way of thinking about my life and where I want to go! Love the new look! :-) Happy New Year!

    I love your word! That’s a really great one to focus on. I love the idea of focusing on just one word and it’s been something that I’ve been thinking about for a while. It’s taken me a while to get to my word but I finally have – it’s Intention. Happy New Year!
