Wherever I go I look around me to see the local art. Above is a mural that is on display in a window in my hometown, DC. It encourages us to be bold with our lives.

Boldness has magic in it, but for each of us boldness means something different. It may mean taking a risk and being vulnerable with a specific person, or it might mean jumping out of an airplane! Sometimes it’s good to not jump to the obvious, but instead to dig a little deeper and find our truth, which is often just a little beneath the surface.

One of my favorite questions is, “What future is calling to you that requires your participation to come into existence?” I use it often in the retreats I conduct to help groups and individuals identify their contributions in areas that are personally and professionally meaningful.

Where does your spirit call you this week? Where could a little courage open up a new door of opportunity?
