To lay bare your body
is the ultimate goal
of overcoming fear
finding courage and strength
in your vulnerability
In all cultures and society strength of the body and the mind is respected and rightly so and so we are told to be strong always and we grow up believing that that is the only way. But artists and creative people, explorers and inventors have proven again and again that leaving yourself vulnerable to criticism,failure and defeat is also a different kind of strength.
The courage to be vulnerable is seeing your drawbacks and faults eye to eye and not being afraid of them.
So the next time you find yourself vulnerable or witness vulnerability don't be scared, find your courage in it and your strength, hiding away from your fears is not the way, accepting them as essential parts of who you are.
Being vulnerable or witnessing vulnerability are both Life lessons, welcome them with open arms.
