In 2013

I’m not really sure how I feel about New Year’s resolutions. I hate when people “want” to make a life change but use the New Year’s resolution as an excuse to put it off till the first of the year.

But then again, it’s hard not think of the new year as a clean slate and a chance to right all the wrongs from the year before. So maybe my opinion on resolutions isn’t as set in stone as I thought it was. Maybe I’m only 23 and my beliefs on most things are still in a state of flux. That’s okay.

Either way, here I am in 2013, making a resolution. I resolve to be less scared. For 23 years, I’ve been living in fear of doing things that are outside of my comfort zone. I don’t want to learn new things or meet new people, for the fear of making a mistake or saying something stupid. Basically, I don’t want to put myself out there. And that’s so stupid.

In 2013, I will say yes more. I will try new things, make mistakes, maybe feel uncomfortable and be out there.
