Bold: (adj) showing an ability to take risks; confident and courageous.
Well, perhaps that’s too simply stated.
Maybe I should phrase it this way: where we choose to be bold sucks.
If I were comparing “bold” to moving into a new house, I would parallel it with hanging pictures.
Once you remove all the old paint on the walls, wash them, let them dry, repaint and make sure you’re satisfied with the trim, then you can have the joy of hanging pictures.
But you do not hang pictures on a filthy, paint-peeled wall.
And you do not act bold when what surrounds your boldness fails to confirm it.
There are too many people with opinions who are walking contradictions to their own philosophy. They become hypocrites–not because they’re faulty human beings, but mainly because they insist on being bold about it.
Humility is the joyful wisdom that leaps onto the back of bold…always reminding us that we can be wrong.
