This year is my year to be BOLD! That is my word of the year. And as a result, I have felt empowered, as I have experienced various successes from personal fitness goals to assuming new enterprises by stepping up my game and being bold. I have found that I need to be true to my ideals and my purpose without worry or fear.
Consider this as an example: we are like any celestial body in the Universe, such as our sun. Our sun continues to serve its purpose, to shine boldly upon our world. Our sun does not worry if it will be too hot or if it will not illuminate through the clouds. Our sun simply continues to be true to itself, as it radiates its energy into our atmosphere as well as across our solar system.
Dan Zadra says that worry is a misuse of imagination. I feel that worry is in fact a perverse use of our imagination and creative energy. Creativity can be a very liberating experience when utilized in a positive way. Imagination can fuel our dreams and inspire us. Natalie Rogers stated, “Creativity is like freedom: once you taste it, you cannot live without it. It is a transformative force, enhancing self-esteem and self-empowerment.”
Being BOLD, having courage, and being fearless starts with us showing up each day and facing our tasks, embracing life and seizing the moments. It is also about giving ourselves permission to BE who we are and DELIGHT in it! Let us use our creative energy to nurture our daring spirit. Each of us is a valuable, intricate part of the Universal tapestry, where each fiber adds strength, beauty and purpose. So, it is important for each of us to believe, be patient and to continue down our path! And, to resist the urge to give up! Be fearless, take courage, and BE BOLD in all your endeavors!
