A magnet came in my Christmas stocking: “do one thing every day that scares you”…and I immediately said yes that is my New Years Resolution. Should be everyone’s resolution. Maybe not James Bond type adventure; not scare the shit out of us scary and dangerous, but put the fears in life aside and live life.
It might be something adventurous like skydiving or mountain climbing. Enter a contest or a race. Say yes to that adventure when offered.
How about dance like a fool in public or jump on a stage and sing. If you’re called to the dance floor…go out there and who cares what anyone thinks.
Might be changing your look, or buying something new you never thought you would. Wear a fun, crazy or sexy outfit you never would have before. Impulse buy!
Maybe tackle a new challenging project, start a new hobby, take on a new career or volunteer somewhere you never thought you would.
Talk to that person you’ve been wanting to talk to or talk to the one you never thought you would want to talk to.
It’s trying those things you’ve been wanting to do all this time and overcoming the little tug of fear that has kept you from trying. Nothing is ever going to change in life if we do the same things we’ve always done. Fear conjures up many excuses and these excuses always give us a reason to never take a risk and always play it safe.
No, these opportunities that may scare me won’t come up everyday, but when they do, big or small, I think I’ll go for it and give it a try. Maybe it won’t be anything monumental…something small or maybe it will be life changing. I may laugh at myself or feel proud of myself, but I can say, Hey, I gave it a shot! The magnet is on my fridge…there for me to see every day of this New Year.
