V is for Vulnerable

It’s 10 years since Brene Brown delivered her Ted Talk on Vulnerability and shared her wisdom around the importance of feeling and acknowledging our emotions, and not seeking to numb them.  It is still worth a listen 10 years later.

There is perhaps no other time in your life when you have felt more vulnerable and threatened more acutely than you have in 2020. Having the courage to own our vulnerability is the first step to embracing all it means to be human.

Brene Brown encourages us “to let ourselves be seen in all our vulnerability, to love with our whole hearts even though there is no guarantee, to practise gratitude and joy when we have doubts, and to belief that we are enough to get through this together.” (I have summarised)

Today acknowledge and embrace your vulnerability.  In essence it is vitality stripped bare and the very thing that enables us to embrace life.

Affirmation: “Today I am choosing to acknowledge my vulnerability and embrace life.”
