To live boldly

boldly/ˈbəʊldli

adverb

  1. in a confident and courageous way; showing a willingness to take risks.
  2. in a way that is characterised by having a strong, vivid, or clear appearance

The Oxford English Dictionary

I think living boldly means to live courageously. Not to cower in fear at every life decision, but to take opportunities as they present themselves.

But courage need not be a big show. Not everyone needs to skydive off a plane to prove we’re living free from fear. Climbing Mount Everest is certainly a grand and courageous thing to do, but it’s no less courageous to remain at its base.

Sometimes courage is shown in the small everyday decisions we make that can so often change the course of our lives. A commitment to an ideal or truth knowing there’ll be difficulties ahead or consequences that arise. Sometimes making a decision and living it out takes all the courage in the world.

And that’s living boldly enough for me.
