Are you bold? I totally consider myself a bold person! For me, boldness is equivalent to confidence, courageousness and a willingness to take risks. Although it can be quite easy to shy away from the unknown, I try to face everyday challenges with boldness. From banishing fear to creating a structured morning routine with Dunkin’ Dark® coffee, keep reading to see how I lead a bold lifestyle.

I have always been committed to good health by making smart food choices and heading to the gym a few times per week. However, I recently had a hip injury that kept me out of the gym for months! It was tough for me to stop exercising at the gym and it totally rattled my confidence early on. Despite this setback, I didn’t let that injury define me! Being bold meant that I would not fear the consequences of a hip injury. It simply meant I would start focusing on other muscle groups, such as my abs and arms. I was able to swim in the pool, so I added that to my regular workout routine.

Luckily, my hip is on the mend now and starting to get back to normal. I’m hoping to be back to my regular workout routine very soon. It’s important to remember that life sometimes throws us curve balls, but it’s how we deal with adversity that defines us. I’m so proud that I didn’t let my hip injury affect my ability to work out, be happy and conquer my days!

it’s how we deal with adversity that defines us

Here are some other qualities that I think make me a bold person:
1. Fear nothing: We all have fears- that’s a given! However, I really try to not let these fears control my life or dictate my actions. For example, I may have a fear of spiders, but I won’t let that stop me from going out in the yard with my daughters to play in the grass! I may have a fear of heights, but I won’t let that stop me from visiting tall attractions at the amusement park. Even though I have fears, I make sure not to let them affect my everyday decisions. Pushing those fears away is what me bold!

2. Pursue one’s passions: What’s your passion? For me, I absolutely love doing DIY home remodeling projects. There’s nothing that gives me more satisfaction than taking something that’s old & boring and transforming it into something chic & timeless. My list of DIY projects never really ends – once one thing gets crossed off the list, another one (or two) things gets added to the list. And I wouldn’t have it any other way! Pursuing my passions gives me the confidence to conquer my day and live a bold life.

3. Persevere through it all: We all face hardships. There is nobody who doesn’t deal with adversity at some point in time. It’s important to stay the course and not shy away. Even when my injured hip kept me out of the gym, I stayed committed to my fitness goals and just focused on upper body strength! It was my way of being bold!

4. Take time to decompress: Everyday life can definitely be busy and hectic at times. That’s why I really love my structured morning routine. I always take time each morning to meditate, plan out my day and drink a cup of Dunkin’ Dark® coffee. Dunkin’ Dark® coffee inspires me to be bold and take risks!

I love the convenience of making coffee at home. Rather than driving to the store, dealing with traffic, waiting on lines, etc., I can enjoy my favorite brew from the comfort of home- without ever getting out of my pajamas. That’s something to smile about.
