Living FEARLESS / What's Your Word?
I'm not a 'New Years Resolution' person. Never have been, never will be. When I hear those words, I think of one word- Pressure. We, as a generation, put so much pressure on ourselves to have it as 'together' as that fitness guru we saw on Instagram or the girl we saw in a 3 minute YouTube video, who is total 'goals'. I know for a fact that i'm my own worst critic- aren't we all though?!
Stepping outside of our own box for a second, we begin to see that everybody is in the same boat. Feeling the need to be more fit, more organized, more social, the list goes on. This year, my aim is to just be more unapologetically ME than I was the day before. I know we all have huge plans and expectations for this year, which is incredible. But sometimes starting small makes bigger progress than starting dramatically large.
I've chosen ONE word to lead me through this year. I will live by it, refer back to it, and be reminded by it. That word is FEARLESS. To live fearlessly is such an encouraging concept- get out of that comfort zone, get rid of that fear that was holding you back before. I will be FEARLESS in the face of hardship, but also fearless in pursuit of all things I'm about to achieve. So every day, or week, or fortnight, I can reflect on how I consciously lived fearlessly in moments I'd have otherwise never thought twice.
I read somewhere that the phrase "do not be afraid" is in the Bible 365 times- a daily reminder from God to live FEARLESS. I'm so excited to see what can be learnt from this!
I encourage YOU to pick a word to live by for this next year! (Or even Month, or Week!)
What will that word be? Courageous? Love? Maybe even patience? The possibilities are virtually endless on this one! I feel this year being a life-changing one, so join me in #WhatsYourWord and let's use our word to transform our lives this year.
Tag me in your social media posts with what your WORD is with the hashtag #WhatsYourWord ! I can't wait to see what you guys come up with!
Love, N x
