Some words have been really good for me, and some words have been lost over the course of the year. But I keep seeking the guidance of that quiet voice inside, and listening for the word that becomes important each year.
BRAVE started singing out to me about the middle of last year. When a friend said to me "hey, lets work with businesses, teaching them how to do SEO and blogging and get google to notice their business" and I said yes, then doubted myself for weeks and wondered what the hell I was doing.
Then October saw me blogging every day about blogging, and knowing inside myself that I really could do this! So I've spent big chunks of the year learning about SEO and blogging and reading all those posts I pin on pinterest, but I don't do anything with the knowledge.
BRAVE wants me to learn to share my knowledge with others in a way that benefits me, not just them. BRAVE wants me to try new foods, learn new things, wear different clothes, randomly decide to get on a plane for a day trip.
BRAVE wants me to make plans and.follow.through. BRAVE wants me to put one foot in front of another.every.day.
But there's a little voice, nagging in my head tonight, that says that I can't do any of these things that I want to do. That I'm not good enough, don't know enough, can't share enough. BRAVE can see past that, and guide me to the end.
Have you chosen a word for 2015?
