There is no passion to be found playing small-
in settling for a life that is less than the one
you are capable of living.
—Nelson Mandela—


Put a grain of boldness into everything you do.
—Baltasar Gracián—

When a birthday rolls around, a new word for the upcoming year is chosen to focus on. How often does fear hold us back… too often for me. With a little bit of struggle tugging at my heart at entering into a new decade, I decided let’s pick being— BOLD. To continue going after this life with more boldness. To continue chasing dreams and building a life that brings happiness and fulfillment.

I felt inspired to create a simple art piece to be reminded myself of the word and synonyms throughout this year. And to not allow fear to stand in the way.

Be bold in what you stand for
and careful what you fall for.
—Ruth Boorstine—

Either I will find a way, or I will make one.
—Philip Sidney—

In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can.
—Nikos Kazantzakis—

Be bold, be brave enough to be your true self.
—Queen Latifah—

When something is important enough,
you do it even if the odds are not in your favor.
—Elon Musk—
