Did you ever play that game? You know the one where you say, "I dare you to_______ (fill in the blank here)". Or to make it even more exciting you would say, "I double dog dare you to _____." Then, to be a real game changer you might even break out the triple dog dare. While this game was a childhood favorite or maybe nightmare, I remember saying these words to my sisters, brother and friends. The word dare meant to take a risk. To do something you may be uncomfortable doing. Or to do something that may just be absolutely crazy!
I kept going round and round about my word for this year since I know I fell a little short at living up to the expectation of my OLW from last year. My first word I thought was going to be "it" was surrender. But then I started to think... and think..... and think. So with all that thinking, it wasn't the word for me. Then, I was thinking about the book I need to start reading. It's called The Happiness Dare by Jennifer Dukes Lee. And that word jumped out at me. Dare. I'm going to work this word this year.
I'm going to Dare to:
try new things
spark love and excitement with my hubby
see Jesus in all the people I come in contact with
be a supportive momma
be an example
point out important qualities in my girls
enjoy the small moments
listen to the quiet
try new foods
My list continues to grow, now I just need your help to keep on daring me to do things.
