Boldness is something that has been on my heart lately. To me, boldness is setting aside any fears or worries of what others may think of you, and to step out in faith. Although I don't consider myself a shy or timid person (ha!), I have realized lately how I tend to play it safe in order to refrain from "rocking the boat" so to say. I desire to have a bold faith that not only benefits those around me, but that also requires a deep sense of trust in the Lord to step out in my boldness.
On a separate but not completely unrelated topic, I have also been thinking of being more bold in my style. I so often see pieces of clothing styled in a new and different way and want to replicate but feel timid and wonder if people will judge me. In the same way, I want to try new trends or am drawn to a particular item but think "eh, better stick with the usual".
I have been wanting to wear more hats and I have been in the market for a floppy-but not too floppy- black hat. When out with my sissy pants this past weekend we found the perfect one at Mojave (@shopmojave). I wore it around the store REALLY wanting to buy it but doubted myself. After some validating words from the stylish sales girl and some extra push from my sister, I decided to step out of the ordinary and get it. On the ride home I had a freeing thought: who CARES if anyone doesn't like my style, its MINE and I get to choose to be whoever I want to be. So there you have it, wearin' the hat, don't care who cares, ain't nobody got time for that.
