1. not hesitating or fearful in the face of actual or possible danger or rebuff; courageous and daring.
Not Hesitant? I was one anxiety attack away from canceling my ticket and hibernating in my bedroom until the second coming.
Not Fearful? Ha! I was terrified...was? Ok, I still am! The fear of the unknown, the fear of failure, the fear of not being good enough; these are all things that I am still struggling with.
Daring? Does not putting your phone on airplane mode during take off count? If so I'm as daring as they come.
"So helly what makes you bold?"
Great question, I'm so glad you asked!
I'm bold because I decided to do it afraid! I didn't cancel my ticket, I packed my bags and left not only my room but my home, and regardless of the weight of my fears I chose to press on.
I know I'm not alone in this, many of us feel that we don't fit the criteria of boldness, but you do. Your boldness exists in your perseverance, in your ability to continue in times of adversity and turmoil. You are bold friends, own it!
Do it afraid!
Proverbs 28:1 The wicked flee when no one is pursuing them, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.
