That’s how I feel right now as I’m reading DARING GREATLY by BrenéBrown. I’m beginning to think she climbed inside my head and wrote down all my thoughts.
I’ve found myself nodding in agreement while reading every page. Brown is blowing my mind with her wisdom and honest perceptions.
“Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity.”
“Trust is a product of vulnerability that grows over time and requires work, attention, and full engagement.”
I’m in the midst of several vulnerable undertakings.
Every morning for the past several weeks I’ve woken up to a crew of construction workers chillin’ on my front lawn, ready to tackle the day’s work. My house is not my own. My inner sanctum is a construction site. How symbolic.
I’m excited to share the other undertaking I referred to earlier with you in a few weeks.
Thank you. Thank you for making this a place where I’ve felt like I can be vulnerable, brave, and alive. Thank you for reading faithfully and sharing your thoughts. You make this blog what it is!
Finally, I wasn’t surprised when I came across one of my favorite quotes in DARING GREATLY:
“When we were children, we used to think that when we were grown up we would no longer be vulnerable. But to grow up is to accept vulnerability. To be alive is to be vulnerable.” Madeleine L’Engle (italics mine)
Have you read a book recently you’ve wanted to share with the world?
