“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.” ~ Brené Brown

“The thing that I have learned is that vulnerability is at the center of fear and shame, but it is also at the center of joy and gratitude and love and belonging.” ~Brené Brown, author of The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, Rising Strong, and Braving the Wilderness #qotd #quote #quotestoliveby #brenébrown *********************************
Ms. Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston, known for her work on #vulnerability, #empathy, and #shame. I recently watched her TED talk, The Power of Vulnerability, which was fascinating and affirming. When she set out to study shame (a 6-year research), she discovered that those who DID NOT struggle with shame had:
•a strong sense of worthiness
•believed themselves worthy of love and belonging
•have the courage to be imperfect
•have compassion for themselves and others
•made connections because of their authenticity
•were vulnerable. They believed that what made them vulnerable made them beautiful. ❤️ She went on to say that vulnerability is the “willingness to say ‘I love you’ first; the willingness to do something without guarantees...to invest in a relationship that may or may not work out.” It is “letting ourselves be seen deeply.” It is “believing that we are enough.”
I struggle with being vulnerable because I’m keenly aware of my weaknesses, and I’ve always had—from birth, probably (hah!)—the tendency to try to prove to myself (and others) that I’m good enough. My childhood was about expectations and excelling, but fallible human that I am, my failures hurt me deeply. I was hard on myself (still am sometimes). But as I’ve grown older, I’m learning to love myself more, to be ok with being imperfect. To not let my pride and ego get in the way all the time. ******************************
Photos taken from my #walk/#run this morning. I braved the cold for 4.3 miles, and I was glad I did. It made my ❤️ feel lighter, better, just having the freedom to let my thoughts run wild. #naturephotography #natureisbeautiful #nature #naturelovers #running #runner #selflove #betransparent #inspire #motivate #loveothers #loveyourself #youareworthy #youareenough

If you have talked to me long enough, I’ve probably said the words #vulnerable and #connection at least 5 times in your presence. #brenébrown changed my life and understanding of the people around me with her #Tedtalk on vulnerability and I’ve been echoing her words to anyone that will listen ever since. So I was so incredibly touched when a dear friend of mine gifted me with one of her books. I cannot wait to dive in!!! 📖🤓

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light”. #BrenéBrown #Lighting #Darkness

#Vulnerability. Still so hard. All really good things are hard. Not gonna give up. Yes, #BrenéBrown gives me life.

#standupandshinechallenge ✨😭 Ah! I’m struggling with the words for what I experienced today @theshineproject 💛 I am so guilty of being stagnant in my life and letting my power slip away. Showing up & letting myself be seen is not only ENOUGH, but it’s also life-giving. And light-giving! 💡 I feel like I experienced a heart lift today. 😊
Brené Brown always talks about showing up— choosing to be seen and living in vulnerability rather than behind our masks or armor. Today’s teaching encouraged me that showing up and shining my light is IMPACTFUL and gives light to others. I can light up a room. So long as I choose to show up. 💛

“Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren't always comfortable, but they're never weakness.”

"I'm doing that thing I do when I'm afraid. I'm floating above my life, watching it and studying it, rather than living it." #BrenéBrown

My current read, had to take a break from the mystery/thriller binge I was on and read something more for the soul. #permissiontolove

Olón is nourishing my soul. More than location, it is the people I meet & connections I make. •
I'm crossing paths with exactly who I'm meant to & learning lessons from all of them. •
Gratitude to Elba for placing me in a position of vulnerability in class yesterday. Being cradled like a baby, cared for & loved by a brother who's name I didn't even know. •
'Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it's having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome. Vulnerability is not weakness; it's our greatest measure of courage' - Brené Brown.

"There will be times when standing alone feels too hard, too scary, and we’ll doubt our ability to make our way through the uncertainty. Someone, somewhere, will say, ‘Don’t do it. You don’t have what it takes to survive the wilderness.’ This is when you reach deep into your wild heart and remind yourself, ‘I am the wilderness."

vulnerability // the most difficult things are usually the most important. being brave is hard, and being raw & open with the world is scary. speaking your truth can (& will) make your chest tight & your voice shake sometimes. but to jump into that arena & face your life boldly, is where change and growth and good good good things happen for you.


Don’t skip out on fully living by hiding in a shell that isn’t 100% authentically you. Give your all to this life because the one person that misses out the most when you hold back in fear of being vulnerable... is you.
