The universe is apparently trying to tell me something. The theme which I found in my random readings today? Boldness. According to social science research, men tend to be a little more arrogant and succeed more often because they are bolder. I listened to this brief interview from NPR. Women are more humble and will short change crediting their own efforts more quickly and attribute their success to others’ support instead of their own talent. Women don’t score as high on the successful entrepreneurial chart. To be successful, arrogance is good and humility is bad. Hmm. And thanks Sue.
I then stumbled across a Goethe quote and then another about Boldness.
And suddenly, I felt the need to be a little more Bold. I am not the type to hound people for anything, or even ask. But then again, efforts need to be made to be rewarded right?
I rewrote my About Page finally! Lots and lots of worry, writing, and linking, and it’s so much better than it was. Please visit it here.
And keep your eyes on me for the upcoming month of October. For two years in a row, I’ve posted a blog post every single day of October and this year I’ll be doing the same with a twist.
I’m joining author and blogger of That Curious Love of Green, Jane Barry for her Creativity Bootcamp. I will be committed to creating something, writing or art, and sharing my creations every single day. Follow along or join in if the bold mood strikes you. Read all about it here. Or keep an eye on her Facebook page here.
Trying hard to shakes off the hangover of the “what ifs”. What if I look the fool, what if I fail? What if it turns out I can’t really do it after all? And replacing them with the gung-ho boldness that I admire in so many other doers. Let it be a magnificent failure and get points for the effort. Admire myself for doing it anyway. Tell my fears to have a seat in the back and enjoy the ride.
Because Fortune Favors the Bold.
And the Authentic. Be you and you can’t really screw that up.

Too much resonance for me! I need to crawl back under my covers.
You are too smart for your own good Sandra. Keep reading, I might inspire you.
cognitas ergo scribis
I think therefore I am. More like, I write to spew the thoughts that seem to prove I am spending a lot of time thinking too much.
That’s so true, Shalagh. You can’t screw up being your authentic self. Here’s to Boldness and taking chances in your new year! Go for it, girl.
I toast your wishes to the sky and hope they rain back down on me Amy!
