“No great discovery was ever made without a bold guess.”

Isaac Newton

“Laugh at yourself, but don’t ever aim your doubt at yourself. Be bold. When you embark for strange places, don’t leave any of yourself safely on shore. Have the nerve to go into unexplored territory.”

Alan Alda

“Put a grain of boldness into everything you do.”

Baltasar Gracian

“Those who take bold chances don’t think failure is the opposite of success. They believe complacency is.”

I was at Jamba Juice at Whole Foods Columbus circle and was craving a green juice, but as I gazed at the menu I only saw smoothies.  ”Do you have green juice?” I asked.  One would think a place with juice in its name would have it.  ”We have OJ,” was the answer I got.

 

In my raw vegan days I woulda judged.

 

Now I don’t. Oh no I don’t. I get it. Lemme explain.

 

You do your best.  You’re bold.  You leap where there’s no net, and you see.  You see what happens.  If it ain’t workin, you  adjust.  I’m talking bout jamba juice. They started out with green juice and it obvi didn’t sell. So they noticed what did sell, and they adjusted. They modified.  They made it work with a different model.

 

Boldness has power and genius in it. So be bold and go for it. Maybe it won’t end up looking exactly like what you envisioned, but the Universe always rewards boldness.

 

Have the best day ever!
Namaste!

Super-Mom Betsy Parsons:

I expected motherhood to change me.  How could it not?  Everything was new.  But what I didn’t expect was that motherhood would strip me bare – drop me to rock bottom – force me to face that I had lost myself – demand that I pick up the shattered bits of me and piece myself back together.  It was all at once brutal and gratifying.  I am grateful for all of it.  I have learned who I am and how great my support system is.  I learned how absolutely wonderful my husband is, what a fantastic dad he is, and what a loving and supportive family surround us.  It’s not just me who is a super mom.  It’s my husband, my mom and dad, and my mother and father-in-law who make up this super family.  Each one of us plays an important role. Life is a tremendous gift, and we were all starkly reminded of that during the first six weeks of my daughter’s life. We almost lost her.  The first six weeks of her life were spent in the NICU.  She was a full term baby but a very sick one.  After she came home, every milestone was carefully watched.   She thrived.  And I almost missed it because I was worried about what could be wrong.  It was 9 months later when I started to splinter apart.  She was walking and I was cracking – emotions needed to be expressed.  I needed to feel again.  Not surprising, but I hadn’t been taking care of myself.  I was just trying to make it through a minute, then an hour, and a full day.  I wasn’t taking care of myself.  I wasn’t sleeping well.  I was sleepwalking.  I rationalized that all of this was well within a first-time mom response (ha!).   Eventually, I was diagnosed with PTSD and got help.  I began to piece myself back together.  It took another full year for me to hear the stirrings of my voice.  It’s been over two years, and just recently I realized that I am whole again.  I experienced such joy in finding myself.    I had really missed me!  But losing myself and finding an improved version had taken hold – makes me so grateful for the journey.  It has allowed me freedom to be myself, to slow down and enjoy the moments of motherhood, to rely on my family to play significant roles raising my daughter, to trust, and to embrace the unexpected.  It’s often what I need most!  I’m so thankful for my super family – including my husband who is embracing his role as stay-at-home dad!  Collectively, we’re a super team with a super daughter.
