When I first came up with the name of this blog, I realized it’d be a big commitment for me to make. I’d be promising myself and my readers to show up to life (and the blog) in the most bold and true way I could. The idea of living by these principles wasn’t new for me, but I understood taking this next step meant that I’d be diving much deeper into my relationship with them. Today marks my twentieth week on the deep end so I think it’s time to talk a little more about what exactly a bold true life means.
For me, a bold and true lifestyle is one that stimulates my heart and soul. It’s also in tune with my core values and intentions. Making a bold and true choice feels like taking a deep and invigorating breath. Whenever I make this kind of decision, I’m connected with and listening to my intuition. I’m taking chances that feel aligned with my internal compass… even when I’m scared or unsure of the outcome. Usually, this means feeling the fear, but not allowing it to hold me back.
The path to building a bold true life is one that I’ve been on for a few years now. But when I first began, it was private. I wasn’t declaring it to the world yet – just to myself. And even when this journey was only personal, every step along the way was scary for me. But with each step I took, I got to collect one more piece of evidence that I could do it. That’s what kept (and keeps) me going on this path.
A bold true life is usually built by taking a series of small, deliberate, and consistent steps.
Last year, when I began considering the idea for this blog, a part of me wasn’t sure that I was ready for such a big step. I only had the courage to go through with it because I’d already been practicing taking bold true steps for a while. It was the proof I’d been collecting that made me willing to trust my gut and myself.
Courage and trust have been two incredibly important aspects of this journey for me. Committing to a bold true life has radically developed my capacity for both of these traits over the last few years. Every time I make a choice that feels bold and true, my courage and trust muscles are being stretched. The stretching is definitely uncomfortable, but without that growth, I never would’ve stuck with most of my recent major decisions. This is why my next couple of blog posts will be devoted to these exact topics.
Before I end, of course, I’d love to hear from YOU!
