Instead of focusing on how much we failed last year, let’s just move forward! :P I know not everyone likes to set resolutions or goals at the beginning of January, but I love making lists, and I love the feeling of a clean slate. I may only finish half of my goals for the year, but I know that putting them down on paper (or on the internet) helps me achieve way more than if I were to keep them to myself. So here we go again! Cheers to 2016!!
If I were to pick a word for next year, I would pick BRAVE. If you see below, I’m doing a few things that are way outside my comfort zone (ie. #6 and #9). I feel like the older I get, my list of fears grows and in greater intensity. Where did these fears come from? Whatever happened to the carefree girl playing in the mud and climbing trees and houses in a dress?
