A great reminder to live fearlessly. Thanks for putting my thoughts into words Brian from Everywhere Once. This is my New Years resolution!
Editor’s Note: This article first appeared here on January 1, 2011. We’re publishing it again as a perennial New Year’s reminder. We also updated the headline photo to show one of the fears we faced since writing these words 12 months ago. Be sure to leave a comment and let us know what fears you overcame last year or about the ones you resolve to tackle in 2013.

It doesn’t have to.
