when you are young, you are bold. this is obvious. but you are bold because you are young. you don’t know that much about life or the world, so you take bold steps naturally. you do not stop and think –you just do it. you do it because it is fun. you do it because it is something different to do. you do it because it is there to do. you do it because you have no responsibility to anyone else. why not do it and experience the world in a bold fashion. this bold mindset is what can push someone to go off the common path and be different. it can cause you to make an impact early in life. it can cause you to make change in the world. being bold can set you on a bold path in life – it can affect your life dramatically. but oftentimes, the bold steps we take when we are younger are small bold steps. they let you experience the world more but do not necessarily change the world in any way. as time goes on, the boldness dies down and you settle into your life of fixed habits and routine. this is also the natural way and is the way of self preservation. but what we miss deep in our soul is to be bold again. to use the past experience of being bold to still be bold and to still take the bold steps necessary to feed the never-ending desire to make bold change in your life and in the world. the hardest thing to do when you are older is to keep the boldness alive in your every day life – to keep pushing the limit by being bold. it is even hard to know that you must continue to be bold to be happy. so, stop and think about being bold once in awhile. look and see where you can be bold to keep life interesting. it is another great challenge in life to be forever bold. but to live life to the fullest, you must be bold always. stop the routine right now, right this very minute and be bold.
