It’s okay to feel vulnerable. It’s okay to be scared of something. But to let that control you is not the kind of life you want to live. Fear is the most dominant emotion in my life. It drowns me in anger, jealousy, judgment, and stagnation. All of those emotions are so heavy you forget to breathe. That makes it really hard to manifest the positivity you so desperately desire.
I believe being vulnerable will help you begin to shed the weight of your negativity. It will help you realize that you are a gift to the world.
It has taken me years to begin to understand that making mistakes is normal. When it came to school, I did not want to fail for so many of the wrong reasons. But my path has led me to where I am today and that I am very grateful for.
So how does one be vulnerable?
My interpretation of it is to live just outside your comfort zone. When you do that, you tend to live a more honest life and I see honesty as the core to being vulnerable. For example, you look into taking yoga classes. After reading all the benefits of yoga and picking out the perfect studio, you are pumped to try it out. But as soon as you get to the studio and see all the other people stretching and chatting in their fancy yoga clothes, you panic.
Why am I doing this? Let’s just go home and try another day…
That uncomfortable feeling you get through being out of your comfort zone is vulnerability.
This year, I’m going to seek out feeling vulnerable once a month (at least). I want to work toward figuring out my true self and what better way than to actually challenge myself?!
It’s not going to be easy…especially after the calm year I just had in 2015. I’m going to push myself in 2016. Let’s just hope I’m not all talk…
What’s one thing you would like to try but have been putting it off?
