Every year I make resolutions that seem to always fall through and never are achieved. I saw my favorite blogger and entrepreneur Emily Ley post on her story asking her followers to share their word for the new year. I decided to do the same on my Instagram page and was amazed at the results. Words like happy, myself, calm, simple etc.. were answered. As I scrolled through the results I kept trying to find a word that I wanted to be mine for 2019. Finally, I thought back to my college friends and a word we always say is bold. Be bold in every aspect of your life. Boldness is not one of my strong suits or a quality that people use to describe me. I can be timid and non-confrontational. I know what I want but am always hesitant to go for it. So this year I am deciding to be bold. Nothing is holding me back.
Bold according to dictionary.com can be described in three ways
1.not hesitating or fearful in the face of actual or possible danger or rebuff; courageous and daring:
2.not hesitating to break the rules of propriety; forward; impudent:
3.necessitating courage and daring; challenging:
Boldness can be applied in every aspect of your life from raising your hand in class, wearing an unusual outfit or trying something new. I feel being bold is part of growing. How will you ever learn from mistakes without being bold? I know it can be difficult to do something that makes you uncomfortable whether it goes well or bad it is always a valuable lesson.
I challenge all of you to go outside of your comfort zone and be BOLD in 2019.
