bold choices

Bold Choices

It’s not the box that society puts us in that limits who we become it’s the box we put ourselves in. We are the primary authors of the thoughts, words, limitations that do the most damage to our possibility.

 

Every time we take action to unlock the limits and step outside the box is a bold choice. To be bold is to feel my voice shake and say  what I know I need to say any way. To be bold is to realize where I am stuck, stagnant, or scared and saying in this moment I will choose something different.

 

To be bold is to admit that you are scared at times and don’t always know what you are doing. To actually choose. To move. Now. To be bold is to begin to ask different questions. To be awkward. Clumsy in the unknown and find our way. To admit when we are wrong. To ask for help. To open my heart. To listen beyond my first reaction or thought. To be bold takes courage. For real.

 

I heard a definition for courage today:

 

Making choices that move us toward our best self.

    I know I need to make a bold choice in my life and it is definitely scary. I came to a realization a couple of weeks ago that I like the owner of the company and the company that I work for but I don’t love what I do. My husband asked me a question last night – what would you want to do everyday of your life even if you didn’t get paid for it?

    I am very cautious in life. It takes me completely out of my box to make a move and not know what’s next or know how to do what’s next. As I write this I know this is my looking good conversation. I hate to look awkward, clumsy, and even more so to fall down/fail.

    Now as mother to our 8 1/2 month old son, I want him to be an example to him. I want him to see what hard work and doing what you love looks like. At the same time, I worry about our financial obligations for his future. He is my inspiration and also one of the reasons I play it safe.

    Looking for courage to be bold and make a change….
