“The brave may not live forever, but the cautious do not live at all.” –Richard Branson

If you are anything like me, you are very easily bored. Life, no matter how chaotic, gets routine and monotonous very quickly. I have a full-time job, a part-time job, a family, and other commitments, which means I am constantly on the go. But I’m bored. Things are getting robotic and it’s getting to me. Then I read Richard Branson and I’m reminded that I’m living in a bubble I created. There are countless things I want to write, read, say, do, taste and feel, but I’m holding so furiously to my chaos that I’m not able to truly experience life. Maybe this strikes a chord for you too and we can venture into the New Year together… we can focus on living, taking brave and bold steps out of the comfort (and boredom) of our chaos.

Thing about it. You have a lifetime of opportunities to step away from caution and live – why not start in 2023? Why not make this a year of brave choices?
