vulnerability

looking deeper…being vulnerable

I love this idea that when we numb out all of the things we don’t want to feel we also numb out those we do want to feel.  Looking at this picture (which I took) makes me feel kind of…embarrassed.  I don’t want to look that closely at the flower’s vulnerability.  Because I don’t want anyone looking that closely at mine.

If any of this sounds interesting to you, you have to watch this Ted Talk by Brene Brown.

So worth watching!

    Interesting topic. I’ve had a hard time, allowing myself to feel the full range of emotions, and accepting that we need both sunshine and rain in life. Here’s a post I wrote, on it: http://myjourneytoithaca.wordpress.com/2013/03/15/lessons-in-the-dark/

    Opening ourselves up to being vulnerable, and to experience the full range of experiences that life has to offer, is scary, but infinitely worth it.
