How to Live More Boldly

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and The J.M. Smucker Company, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #1850Coffee #1850CoffeeatMeijer  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

I'm a creature of habit. I wake up, drink coffee, check my email, and schedule my social media.  Then I start homeschooling the kids, eat dinner, go to our evening activities, work more, and go to bed.  I have the same routine every day, and I don't like it when my routine changes.


Although I am comfortable, I know that I need to push myself out of my comfort zone at least a little bit.  After all, I spend my days pushing my son just a little bit out of his comfort zone as part of his autism therapy.  So why wouldn't that apply to my own life?  Now I'm living more boldly, starting with 1850 Brand Coffee each morning.

This year, there are a few goals that I have.  One is to live life more boldly.

At first, my introverted self was shocked that I would even make such a goal.  Living boldly doesn't mean that I have to jump from an airplane or do something that is miles out of my comfort zone.  I can still be a work at home mom of three kids in the country and live boldly.

HOW TO LIVE YOUR LIFE BOLDLY


Although I'm trying to live more boldly and to vary my routine, I still start each day with coffee.  I'm a firm believer that with coffee all things are possible.


I recently switched to the new 1850 Brand Coffee, which is a premium coffee from the makers of Folgers.  It's bold and smooth without being bitter.  It's strong like coffee shop coffee, but it's available in other roasts besides dark.  It's fire-roasted and ground for a rick aroma and taste, perfect for starting my day.  I found it at Meijer.

Visit Meijer from 5/6 - 6/2 and take $1 off any 1850 Brand Coffee Product with the mPerk digital coupon (while supplies last).

1850 Brand Coffee is so named because J.A. Folger started a bold and innovative way for prospectors to help seek their fortune.  They say that living boldly starts with the first bold choice.  Today, we can drink 1850 Brand Coffee as a bold way to start our days.  It fuels ideas, commitments, and brave endeavors.  It's more than just a coffee.


LEARN TO EMBRACE FEAR


I don't mean that you have to accept extreme fear, but learn how to embrace a little bit of fear.  Push yourself a few feet out of your safe zone.  Next time, push yourself a little bit more.  Each time you do this, you'll get more confidence.  

CHANGE YOUR THOUGHTS


Every time you catch yourself saying something negative about your choices, repeat something positive to yourself.  Surround yourself with positive words and positive friends.

BE BOLD VICARIOUSLY


I'm a firm believer that you are what you surround yourself with.  Read the biographies of successful bold people that you look up to.  


ASK FOR ENCOURAGEMENT


You don't have to be bold on your own.  Ask your spouse or friend for help.  They may offer some great suggestions and cheer you on along the way.  

JUST DO IT


When I have to do something bold, I just close my eyes and jump in.  If I think about it, I'll talk myself out of it by going over all of the things that can go wrong.

CELEBRATE VICTORIES


No matter how small, celebrate each step.  Last week, I wore bold makeup in public for the first time.  I silently cheered myself on every time I passed a mirror.


No matter how you define bold, start off your day with the bold blend of 1850 Brand Coffee.  What bold thing have you done recently?
