my word for 2011 is BRAVE!
I've already started by finding this definition:
possessing or displaying courage; able to face and deal with danger or fear without flinching
And here are a few thoughtful quotes
- A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave.
- Be brave enough to live life creatively. The creative place where no one else has ever been.
- Fortune and love favor the brave.
So I'm feeling really enthusiastic and a little shy about my new word. I think it's all about taking action--whether the action is waiting or leaping in a new direction. I think it's all about letting go of fear. (I wish someone sold cans of "Fear-B-Gone!") I'm pulling myself out of the "I'm the only one" bubble by planning a Brave Women's Breakfast--more about this soon.
I also think the time is right for my little brave teacher e-zine to get off the ground, and I have lots more ideas for brave teachers--more about all of this will be forthcoming.
