The Core of Growth

To be vulnerable is to expose and express parts of ourselves without hiding or suppressing them. It requires us to let go of the curated, perfect mask and is an invitation to show up courageously and authentically, with all of our flaws. It requires us to soften the walls of protection we have put up and to trust that we will be received with open arms by our loved ones, communities and the Universe. Although vulnerability often feels like we are taking a massive risk as we leap into unknown territory with no certainty of outcomes, it is the true catalyst to our growth and evolution...

The times we find ourselves most vulnerable and open to feel all of the emotions of our human existence, are the ones which teach us the most. Whether it's traveling outside of our comfort zone, transitioning through a relationship, launching a project, or sharing our story — these moments leave us raw and exposed. Yet through these experiences, we receive some of life's biggest lessons and find ourselves on the other side with more strength, clarity, courage, and wisdom...

The more we take risks and allow ourselves to be vulnerable throughout our life story, the more we heal and find freedom. This comes from the process of vulnerability — learning to have innate compassion with ourselves first and being able to let go of outcomes, building stronger connectivity with others as a result of sharing/living our truth, and from fully embracing each stage of our journey — acknowledging that we are exactly where we are meant to be.

The outcome of vulnerability leaves us empowered and awakened...it opens us up to more opportunity as we create healthy space in our lives to call in what is aligned, it sparks our creativity as we express ourselves in new ways, and continues to deepen our relationship to ourself as we further discover, accept and love our authentic Self, the one who is perfectly imperfect, always the student, and on a never ending journey of growth.
