Today I was thinking about the upcoming year and some of the goals I have made for myself. One of the things I want to do is to get my anxiety under control. I feel like I have let it hold me back from so many things and frankly, I’m tired of it. As my mind wandered, I also thought about what word I would like to sum up my goals for this year, and it came to me:
This year, I want to do things that scare me. I want to get out of my comfort zone. I want to become the person I know I can be.
Now, notice that little white line between fear and less? As I was thinking about the word and what it means to me, I realized it has a couple meanings.
In some things, I can be totally fearless. I can go into some situations that I know are going to be hard, but I know the outcome will be okay. Some situations are totally scary for me. In those, I just have to fear less. It’s okay to be scared. It’s okay to be nervous. But I can’t let that fear take over. I can’t let it make decisions for me. So in some situations I have to be fearless, and in some I simply have to fear-less.
If you had to pick one word for 2019, what would it be? Comment and let me go!!
