Being Vulnerable

There is a lot going on in my life right now.

I’m stepping out into a place that leaves me exposed and vulnerable, both two feelings I don’t enjoy.

I cannot control the situation and this is driving me into a world of fear, of anxiety.

Yet even in the depths of fear I feel the peace of faith. It’s a feeling of knowing whatever I’m stepping towards all will be ok.

[Tweet “Sometimes the greatest moments are lived when you allow yourself to be vulnerable.”]

It’s easy to hold back, to not risk your heart. I know that so many times I have missed moments because of fear.

No more.

No more hiding in the shadows telling myself that I’m not good enough or that other people will be better.

No more, not believing that life is beautiful and throughout all seasons there is joy to be found.

I’m may be walking forward on shaky trembling legs but I’m moving onwards.

I’m stepping out not knowing what the future holds but trusting that it’s going to be a vibrant place full of love and laughter.

“Vulnerability is the only authentic state. Being vulnerable means being open, for wounding, but also for pleasure. Being open to the wounds of life means also being open to the bounty and beauty. Don’t mask or deny your vulnerability: it is your greatest asset. Be vulnerable: quake and shake in your boots with it. The new goodness that is coming to you, in the form of people, situations, and things can only come to you when you are vulnerable, i.e. open.” ~ Stephen Russell”

Being vulnerable is raw, emotional and damn right scary but is also completely amazing .
