January 11:

What does it mean to live boldly? 

Whatever it means, I’m sure as hell not doing it.

Hm. I guess it means living with confidence and fearlessness. (Fail.) It means handling anything that comes your way without falling apart. (Fail.) It means trying anything and everything you’ve ever wanted to try. (Fail.) It means creating and living a life you love. (Fail.)

I wish I was like that.

When I first read this prompt, I wondered how I could possibly answer it. And, to be honest, it made me feel like crap. I wish I could live that way. It felt like a slap in the face, especially considering what I’ve been going through lately and how desperately I want to make positive changes in my life.

Okay. Next…

I’d like to boldly climb these two like trees.

p.s. — I hate this one. It’s cheesy and corny and kind of cliché and I don’t like it. So there.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  1. I think living boldly take a shit ton of courage and constant 150% energy to keep it going. I don’t think anyone can genuinely do this all the time. There may be moments of boldness, sure, but not 24/7. I remember watching Deadpool (I think) when one of the mutants tried to recruit him. He said something to the effect of you don’t wake up in the morning a brush your teeth as a hero. You’re a hero by the actions you take in pivotal moments. Of course, Deadpool ends up doing the exact opposite of what the guy was telling him, but he made an excellent point.
