Everything you will do in this year will come from what you do every day. Your year is made up of days. ~ Chris Brogan

After years of keeping secrets, big or little, it is so difficult for me to put it out there. They were not necessarily ‘bad’ secrets. Simply privacy within a preacher’s family. Or confidentiality required for client projects. Or keeping quiet about the public company lest you would accidentally spill some insider secret.

I’ve had years of practice in keeping quiet. Not so many yet in being daring.

Brene Brown in Daring Greatly writes about the courage to be vulnerable and how it will transform us. Daring is about walking into the unknown, out of the comfort zone and into a risk, without knowing what will happen.

Natalie Grant and Charlotte Gambill are holding Dare To Be events “designed to speak directly to the part of you that tends to shy away from stepping out into the unknown”. Somehow it makes me feel a little better knowing it’s not just me.

As this new year unfolds, every day it becomes a little bit easier to be bold and transparent.
