What a life of boldness looks like

Writing about boldness for 30 days probably doesn't make me an expert on the subject. Just ask any PhD student.

But during the last 30 days, I've looked at boldness from every angle I could think of, from creativity to risk taking to formatting. And I've tried to live a life of boldness, if for no other reason than it would give me something to write about.

To me, bold living means a lot of things.

  • Taking control over your life
  • Not allowing your fears to have the final say in your decisions
  • Being willing to try new things
  • A bit more flair to make things interesting
  • Daily risk taking
  • Standing out
  • Daring to be extraordinary

A life of boldness may not give you all the things you want, but at least at the end of the day you can look back and think, at least I tried. At least I had an experience. At least I didn't let [insert challenge here] beat me. 

And when bold living pays off, it pays off in a big way.

You won't be hearing much more from me on the subject, though. Not for a while, anyway.


  1. We don't even get to see your Halloween costume for a day 31 Encore?

  2. There will be words on day 31, but probably no pictures. My Halloween costume consists of boring Muggle attire that just happens to have the Ravenclaw crest on the front.
