Love letters from the street:
I was thrilled to find this phrase on a brick wall in my neighbourhood. How delightful that people are creating uplifting public art! It is a nice complement to a book I've been reading: Brene Brown's Daring Greatly. I am grateful to Brene for her consciousness around vulnerability, and for bringing this concept more into my awareness. She is transparent about her own process of living with vulnerability, and I feel like this book is offering a way to trail blaze through my own life stories and explore them with curiosity. Or meander through them perhaps:)
This concept of vulnerability offers lots to chew on, and is prompting me to notice the moments when uncomfortable emotions arise for me, and to welcome them as normal aspects of being alive, seeing my own own unique kind of vulnerability, as well as the common threads shared by others.
I am seeing more fully how being a courageous, vibrant human being means encountering the layers of vulnerable feelings with a softer gaze.
This quote resonates with me:
The most valuable and important things in my life came to me when I cultivated the courage to be vulnerable, imperfect, and self-compassionate.
