2013: The Theme.

The past three years I have given a theme to the year in January.  2010 was the year of learning discipline.  2011 was a year of relationships.  And 2012 I dubbed the year of experiences, and that it was!

So now, I've spent January really working on a game plan for 2013 and it seems that the end of the month is an appropriate time to choose a theme for this year.  I've deliberated a bit about this year because my goals for this year are a bit all over the place.  There isn't an overwhelming theme for my goals and so this year is a little harder to name.

When I read and reread my goals this year though I realized that what they do have is a common need in order to come to fruition - courage.  I have set lofty goals based on big dreams and they will require that I step outside of my comfort zone and occasionally go for broke. And so, I label 2013 the year to be courageous.  To take risks, to pursue passions, and not to be held back by any fears including one of failure.

Walt Disney once said, 'All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them'.  Well Walt, let's see if you're right.  This year, I'm going for it.  Seems fitting that even as you read this I'm on the other side of the world, in Africa, trying to show a little courage and stretch my comfort zone.
