Fierce in Fifteen

The kids say it all the time... "Stay fierce".

(If you really want to get your point across, when you say it, make a "V" with your fingers and place them just below your eye.)

I've decided to make "Fierce" my word for 2015.

According to Dictionary.com the definition of "fierce" is as follows...
fierce
  1. menacingly wild, savage, or hostile:
    fierce animals; a fierce look.
  2. violent in force, intensity, etc.:
    fierce winds.
  3. furiously eager or intense:
    fierce competition.
  4. Informal. extremely bad or severe:
    a fierce cold.

I highlighted number 3, because this is the essence of the word "fierce" that I want to capture in the next year of my life.  I want to pursue life with a furious intensity... eager to make every single moment count.

I'm tired of the status-quo.  (I'm bored to death of it, actually.)
I am ready to take on new challenges... Climb big mountains...
No more settling for this girl...
No more mundane monotony. I want a Grand Adventure!
I don't want to just survive.  I want to THRIVE!

Heard a song not too long ago that went a little like this:
I been to the doctor he says I'm all right
I know he's lying, I'm losing my sight
He should have examined the eyes of my mind
20/20 vision and walkin' 'round blind
Of course the song is talking about his girl cheating, but I can relate to what he's saying.  It's like you just go through the motions, day in and day out.  Get comfortable. Don't make any waves.  And before you know it, your God-given abilities are dulled and numbed to a point that you're no longer using them.

No more.

Not me.

Eyes wide open.  Heart exposed.  Mind engaged.  Foot on the gas pedal.



Bring it on 2015!!
