Encouragment Toward Living Boldly

This is day 21 in a 31 day series on Living Boldly. To read the other posts, go here. Welcome!

In light of yesterday’s post in which I regaled you with the unsightly side effects of pregnancy–and living boldly in the midst of them—here are a few other examples of folks who have chosen hope over fear.

Spoiler alert: Everything ended well for them. Hence, encouragement toward living boldly :).

Folks Who Are Living Boldly


Spring Green: on depression, being an “older” mom, and going gray (or what I’m doing instead of getting a tattoo) :: K. Elizabeth Fleck

I love Kara’s honesty. And her green hair. I had aspirations of a blue streak in college but it never came to be. Kara makes me want to reconsider.


The Gray Hair, It’s Growing on Me :: Art of Simple

I’ve never dyed my hair and have just started to tweeze out gray strands here and there. I’m not sure what I’ll do when the gray totally takes over, but I like Tsh’s perspective on keeping her gray: “It’s helping me delight in a more uninhibited version of myself.”

I Couldn’t Have Known :: Allison Vesterfelt for Prodigal Magazine

This is one of my favorite stories of boldness and what unexpected blessings it can lead to. It reminds me of how I first met one of my close friends through blog comments, which turned into emails, then Skype, then phone calls, then visits and family hangouts.

Have you heard any fun stories of boldness lately? Please share!

P.S. You might also want to check out my blogging-friend Emily’s series, 31 Days of Gentleness for the Rest of Us. It compliments a series on boldness well :).

    I loved hearing about these bold women! Also, this makes me miss my bold hair colors. I haven’t dyed it since I graduated college, but I used to change it up constantly. It’s been black, pink, blue and purple. It was red for so long, people thought that was my natural haircolor. 😉
