Recently during a late night tête-à-tête i was told by a dear friend that i wasn’t bold, rather not bold enough…Now that was a bit of a jolt. (Okay , so it was more like Zeus personally selecting a bolt of lightning for me . i could almost picture him pondering exactly how he should hold his master bolt so that the lightning strikes me exactly where he aims to and after it does, laugh).
i always thought that i was pretty bold, pretty “bindass”. So this statement kind of took me by surprise and made me sit up ( as much as one can after working with more than three dozen kids for over 6 hours straight) and think.
Since i wasn’t really convinced i asked him to elucidate a bit and well, i had to eat my words pretty soon when he pointed out that though writing a blog was a bold step , deciding to write an anonymous one, wasn’t “bold enough”…
Hence the decision to “mboldenme’….How is that exactly going to happen is still a mystery. And where the process is going to result in i have no clue whatsoever. That bit am not worried about. I don’t really want to know either.
What i do want to know: What does it mean, to be bold? And where does boldness end and foolishness begin?
These are the answers i hope to find during this journey…
And help from anyone would be very much appreciated! Any answers to my questions anyone?
Gute Nacht und Ciao!!!
P.S: One thing i do hope for: That my spelling , which have, thanks to auto-correct and smart phones, “gone for a toss” shall come back to me. Thanks to this blog 🙂
