"I could make it official here by actually doing something vulnerable - writing about being vulnerable"
My friend asked me this question a few weeks back before the start of the new year and I had trouble coming up with something meaningful. I was thinking of all of the positive, aspirational words like 'breakthrough' and 'transformation' which are extremely applicable for me but none of those seemed tangible. I wanted a word that I could reach everyday, even if it was something small. And then it dawned on me today...
To be honest, I don't know that I ever understood what this word meant until a few months ago when I realized I was the least vulnerable person I know. I made a few big changes in my life a few months ago which made me look deep down (and I mean DEEP down) into who I am and what I want out of this life. I struggle with living in the moment and allowing myself to feel whatever it is that I want to be feeling because I am afraid. Afraid of not being accepted. Afraid of failure. Afraid of all of it.
I'm on a mission to be the best person I can be. I hate to be THAT cheesy quote girl but I gotta do it: “Life is too short to worry about anything. You had better enjoy it because the next day promises nothing.” While my 'vulnerable' journey has already started, I thought I could make it official here by actually doing something vulnerable - writing about being vulnerable.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to this journey with you all! I'll leave you with one last cheesy quote but my all time favorite: "Personal success is when you work your hardest to become your best."
