To me, as a widow, being bold means taking on a new future that speaks to who I am and the person who I want others to see.
As we know, life is too short not to go after what we want. When I was younger, I wanted to fit in and be like everyone else. Being unique was something I would avoid, because it made me uncomfortable to have the focus on me.
But I’m now in my sixties and I care less about what other people think. I want all widows to be fearless and to feel empowered to be themselves.
Truthfully, life is better when you are bold enough to love the person you are and not the mask you wear to make others comfortable. The cliché “the only person you can change is you”, is a deep truth.
So be bold, and focus on how you want the rest of your life to unfold.
