Reverb 10: Beyond Avoidance
Reverb10 Prompt: What should you have done this year but didn’t because you were too scared, worried, unsure, busy or otherwise deterred from doing it?
Besides the normal wishing I’d said NO, or some of my “follow through” on things, the avoidance that comes first to my mind is…not “going for it” on many elements related to my interests and passions. Many many MANY ideas have come to me in the past year, some I’ve followed through on and some I’ve not. My hunch is that the stuff I didn’t follow through on, were ones that would have put me in a more vulnerable state in terms of really saying what I want, trying to get it and risking failing (or succeeding). I believe that is why I’m compelled to use the word COURAGE as my word for 2011.
I do subscribe to the concept that it is not worth focusing on the things that I have NOT done, but to focus on what I choose to do moving forward…so, I choose COURAGE…and my next ‘trick’ will be to decide what COURAGE looks like for January.
