Taking Chances

We all have "words", something that triggers us to feel good or motivate us into a better person. "My word" for quite some time has always been "create". I love it so much I am contemplating tattooing that bad boy to my wrist. Whenever I see that word it just makes me feel good, makes me realize that I get to create physical objects from nothing at all. Its kind of awesome actually, one second there is a hunk of square clay sitting on my desk and the next second it turns into a rad bowling shoe.

I saw a bunch of people having a "word" for 2013. Since I didn't want to pick "create" again I decided to choose another word instead.

Chance. I want to take more chances in 2013, whether it be something super small like trying eel for the first time or something huge like going to the airport, finding the first available flight out of NY, and going there.

I don't want to look back on 2013 with any regrets. I'm at an age where I can take risks and chances and hopefully have enough time to bounce back from them if they turn out to be failures learning experiences.

Are ya ready for me 2013? Hold on, its gonna be frekkin rad. I should probably stock up on hairspray for this roller coaster, if I'm going to take a chance I might as well look cute doing so, right?

What is your word for 2013?

  1. I saw you tweeting about this yesterday and I think having a word for 2013 is brilliant!! Chance is such a beautiful + inspiring word and I hope that 2013 is filled with many wonderful things for you Leonora!!

    I think my word for 2013 is going to be calm. I want to think before I speak and not act so quickly and think things through a bit more and for all that I need to step back and be calm! :)

    Happy new year friend!! xoxo

  2. Haha, wow! I definitely thought that was a real shoe!

  3. I have the word create tattooed on my ribs, it was my first one! I wish now that it was in a more visible spot because I love it so much hah. Those totally look like real shoes, holy woah!!

  4. I admire your spirit so much...

  5. You are totally awesome and I'm so with you. I think "chance" is a good one, and I agree that this is the age to take chances and bounce back if we fall flat on our faces.
