While chatting with someone a few evenings ago, they asked me about New Years resolutions, and without thinking, I replied "to fear less".
I've adopted it now, it's great - short, specific but sweeping and punchy enough that I'll remember it.
Every time I mention it to someone they ask me what I'm afraid of - to which I reply - "everything!". I'm a bass player, the choice of instrument was probably a reflection of the lack of self confidence in an 18 year old who didn't want to overdo it.
I've pushed bass into places a lot of people don't go: this year I intend to lever the newly refurbished Toby and make some truly odd noises. I've started editing video already, finding the time to get to grips with (of all things) windows movie maker 2012, which - gasp - turns out to be very good!
Here's to 2014 - to anybody reading this, join me in fearing less, loving more and living well.
