(For the past four years, I’ve used Reverb10 prompts to give myself a question to answer every day of December. It’s a great way to reflect on the year and set goals for the future. I’ve kept my favorite prompts, added a few from other sources like Project Reverband created my own month-and-a-bit of questions.)
Brave. What was the bravest thing you did in this year?
I said yes to moving to a new city. To putting grad school on hold. To finding a new job.
I left a stable job many covet to move to a city where I know almost no one and find a new job. A huge messy risk.
I said yes to doing something because I knew that no matter how much of a risk it was, to not say yes, and leap into the unknown would be worse.
(Last year I wrote this.)
