If you are by nature more outgoing and gregarious and were nurtured to love the spotlight and encouraged to perform then you may appreciate a big bold and messy life. Ups and downs; wild rides to the top of a coaster where you can’t see the horizon and belly jumping loops that unsettle you from your seat will be of great appeal. You will be troubled by downturns but not devastated and you likely don’t handle failure any better or worse than success. You are looking for the next cycle.
I know lots of bbm folks and might be one myself. We relish the chance to try something ‘new’, although as I age I am not sure I take the same kinds of risks. In my head and heart I am still capable of doing anything but a niggling crack of reality is starting to shine through. My friends who enjoy a ride are working in careers where the opportunity to speak and influence is expected. They can be outrageous and say/do audacious things. A challenge for them would be to remain quiet and still for a long time (30 minutes for a couple of them – NN and JB). Most love being around people and gain energy from having an audience to test new material on.
I love my bbm friends for their enthusiasm and for how they embrace challenges head on. They can be exhausting (I can be exhausting) if you travel with them, live with them or share a workspace if you don’t share their zealous approach to the work, their relationships and their lives.
Tomorrow – Solid, Secure and Smart

BBM’s are creative beings that express through the heart and in the process love life and are full of energy..takes one to know one! Express on!
I love your enthusiasm and the term BBM! “Ups and downs; wild rides to the top of a coaster where you can’t see the horizon and belly jumping loops that unsettle you from your seat will be of great appeal.” Beautiful! Sums up life in one sentence. Thanks for sharing.
I so admire BBM’s. I love a challenge and can take a risk most of the time, I do however conduct myself in a controlled manner, a bit conservative, so I love people that are just out there and have no concern with what society expects them to be like! Love the jersey you are wearing!
Love the idea of BBM!! It reminds me of the days when I’d take my kids out to play in the mud puddles! I totally agree with you about some of us who thrive on the energy and excitement of others. Thank you for the timely share. I am going to go bounce on a ball now!! 🙂
Love the term of Big, Bold and Messy….have been in that perspective this week!
