I think the one thing I need to do when it comes to advocating is to be more . . . . . aggressive . . . . bold . . . . I’m not quite sure exactly how to put it into words. But here is the thing . . . . I always feel like I should be doing more, and like I want to do more. So I guess I need to be more proactive in finding ways to advocate. I need to just go for it!

Wow, tangent much? But to sum it up, one thing I will do differently is to do more, even if some advocacy tasks are outside my comfort zone. The way I will accomplish it is by being bolder and not listening to those scared voices that try to hold me back and by being more proactive in finding ways and opportunities to advocate.
What are your favorite advocacy opportunities? Do you have any new advocacy goals for 2013?
