I’m going to say it now, and feel free to call me out on this and keep me accountable in the future:
2012 will be the year of doing things that genuinely scare me. The year to recognize not only the many hopes I have, but the fears.
The fear that keeps me from really trying 100%—the fear that I won’t be good enough. The fear that I can’t.
The fear that suppresses creativity, and stops ideas before they can ever become a reality.
Pretending that these fears aren’t there makes me live and see life with sleepy eyes and humdrum half responses.
These fears need to be acknowledged, but beyond that, they need to be stripped of their power. The truth is that the root cause of these fears is usually something pretty lame in the face of reality and eternity.
No, this year will not be the same. Not because of me so much, but because of of the One who made me.
So what are your hopes/goals/dreams for 2012? Let me know.
