I’m still trying to wrap up my 30 Before 30 list, so I decided to forgo New Year’s resolutions this year. On January 1st the idea of choosing one word to define 2014 seemed to be everywhere from The Today Show to blog posts, so I was inspired to pick one for myself. My word for this year is BOLD.
I don’t want to be afraid to try new things and take more chances. I want to be more fearless in how I approach my career, personal life and faith. Reminding myself to be bold will help me pursue opportunities that come along this year, even if they make me anxious. Boldness will also give me the courage to say “no” to new obligations without feeling guilty about disappointing someone. I’m looking forward to seeing how being bold will shape 2014.
What word have you chosen to define this year?
