We get so accustomed to the difficulty in our lives.
While we want to enjoy our lives … it requires vulnerability. And we all know how much we dislike vulnerability.
While VULNERABILITY is a popular buzzword these days because of Brené Brown’s insightful work, that doesn’t make living with it easy.
Vulnerability is UNCERTAINTY, EMOTIONAL EXPOSURE + RISK.
The promise of vulnerability is so wonderful.
It’s the pathway to love, connection + belonging.
However the pathway of vulnerability SUCKS.
The pathway is filled with obstacles + difficulties.
Accept it and move forward.
You’ll want to resist being vulnerable.
You’ll want to figure out why you resist being vulnerable.
You’ll have a lot of reasons to not risk being vulnerable …
That’s you staying stuck.
That’s how we stay small.
Instead right here, right now I want you to spend your focus + energy on what delights you.
Get used to this feeling state – DELIGHT.
Yes it will bring up vulnerability. 😳
You will worry:
- “Do I deserve this?”😬
- “Is this possible for me?”😬
- “How long will this actually last?”😬
Instead focus on:
- Being delighted. 😁
- Feeling delighted (it’s okay that it’s uncomfortable).🙃
- Seeing the delightfulness of your life.😍
You don’t need to change anyone.
Delightfulness isn’t outside of ourselves.
It’s your truth.
It’s your relationship with you.
Start practicing being delighted.
Yes you will suck at it. 😫
That’s okay. 👍🏻
That’s the process of living delighted.
Continue practicing delightfulness.
You’ve got this. 👊🏻
