If you would’ve asked me five years ago if I was living a bold life, I’m not sure I would’ve been able to answer you truthfully. Maybe because I wasn’t. I had just been diagnosed with anxiety and fear ruled my life. There were no courageous moments and I definitely wasn’t taking any daring chances. It was a dark time and one I’m not ashamed to talk about.
Over the years, I’ve continued to battle my anxiety. And I probably will for the rest of my life. But, I’m happy to report that fear and I are in a different place.
When I decided to write this post, I think my definition of bold meant something else. I don’t sky dive or swim with sharks. Even though that would be freaking awesome. Instead, I’m living a life where I face my fears and uncertainties in my own way. Of course it’s a daily challenge, but I wouldn’t expect anything else.
I know that my boldness comes from a place deep down inside. And whenever doubt arises, it takes over. It was there when I tried surfing for the first time. It was there when this meat eater decided to become a vegan. It’s there every single day when anyone tries to define me or my purpose.
More than anything, living a bold life is about sharing your battles and victories with others. That’s why I was really excited to partner with Dunkin’ Donuts ® on this amazing campaign. They are all about living life’s boldest moments. If you are too, you have to take a look at Erik Weihenmayer’s story. He is beyond inspiring!
Dunkin’ Donuts ® coffee provides coffee lovers (like me) with a distinctly bold, yet smooth, never bitter taste to keep us inspired throughout the day. Is it weird to say I look forward to going to bed at night, just so I can make my iced coffee in the morning?
