Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity.  If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path.” ~ Brené Brown, Daring Greatly

    I just finished reading this book! I found that I had to substitute certain words for it to resonate for me in the professional arena – I replaced ‘vulnerability’ with ‘openness’, and then I could read and nod throughout.

    This is a beautiful quote. I need to remember it takes a risk to move forward and this makes me vulnerable. It is in those spaces I find the creative pieces of my life and the relationships that make life most fulfilling.

    wonderful reminder! in moments of open-hearted fearlessness, I feel less vulnerable to what is before me.

    Thank you for sharing this this great quote. I believe every word of it. Being vulnerable has been one of the most challenging things for me, but it has provided to me the most blessings, lessons, and growth.

    Without vulnerability we can not move forward.

  11. That is the coolest adage ever. I never thought of vulnerability as anything but a failing in most instances…being overly so, at most junctures, and gullible, too–I love that picture! reminds me of my MT upbringing. 🙂

    I am sometimes really cynical, though.
