it’s clearly time to make a bold move, but there are so many of them to make–and how does one choose one from the other? not choosing is the unboldest move one can make. there’s nothing more unbold than that (from what they tell me).
does a sigh count as a bold move? does gazing away from the screen towards the window constitute any form of boldness? when i consider not sighing, I then ask myself, hey, what’s the big risk? just do it. come on! what’s holding you back?
does climbing out of bed count as a bold move?
but what if you’re afraid of the dark, and you still go to bed each night, alone, might you consider that move as bold? that cold slab of a mattress can be quite intimidating.
there are so many people doing such immeasurably bold moves without a moment’s hesitation. they’re everywhere. i think one of them just drove by my window. and there’s another getting off the bus.
so it’s not as if there’s any shortage of potentially good teachers of boldness. they’re out there if you look for them.
but somewhere along the line, you’ll have to make a choice of one of them to be your teacher. And that’s the choice I have so far lacked boldness to make. And the clock is ticking…
