How bold are you? Well…. what does it mean to be bold? I love it when you answer a question with a question. Am I bold? How do I be bold? Do I want to be bold? Lots of questions to answer before we even get to the degree of bold. Webster’s dictionary defines bold as showing the ability to take risks, confident and courageous. As we enter the midlife, now it an excellent time to examine our boldness.
Midlife has opened opportunities for me to learn. I have always been an avid reader, and I am continuously pushing myself to learn new things. I can’t tell you how many times I have said to myself, “you can do this”, “you got this”. Somedays, just conquering life’s internet problems can seem like a huge challenge. One year ago, I took a huge risk. I put myself out there in the blog world. Now, that is a BOLD move. Having the courage to put pictures of yourself when you are not young or model thin takes courage. Sharing your life with others, especially when you are an introvert is bold. I am learning to accept myself for where I am in life and how I look. Learning to love the woman I am. Mostly just being myself and encouraging others.
How bold are you? The dictionary also defines bold as having a strong or vivid appearance. Now, I am not going to lie to you, I like bold colors and shiny things. I have always like them. Now, more than ever I feel like I have the freedom to express my fashion sense and just let go. Throw the rules out the window. Freedom to be bold, be confident, have FUN!
This year I celebrate 52 years of being bold, not old. Chico’s created a campaign to enable women to celebrate where they are in life, expressing their boldness, telling their stories, sharing their achievements. It is an opportunity to break down cultural misconceptions of aging. Celebrate the women behind the number. So many stories of courage, of dedication, of handling adversity with strength. Midlife and beyond holds so many challenges and changes. It is an exciting time in life.
