“begin, be bold and venture to be wise.” // horace
i’ve surely begun, but i’m not so sure that i’ve been either bold or wise.
i could hazard cautious and relatively well-read, but bold and wise never really suit the girl who preferred the sinking into corners and becoming one with the wall. if once, i came out of my crunchy-sugar coated shell, invariably it was my voice that carried whatever boldness i had; i like to talk, and i like to laugh, but in all actuality, i feel dimmed by colour. timid, quiet and shy – i feel overpowered, that i’ve been taken over, too aware of myself. but i’ve always been nagged by fortune favoring the bold – and so, i thought – what if i took a baby steps, started small, and added in a lite-brite palette, to be daring in small doses?
