Owning our story can be hard, but not
nearly as difficult as spending our
lives running from it. Embracing our
vulnerabilities is risky, but not nearly
as dangerous as giving up on love
and belonging and joy – the experiences
that make us the most vulnerable. Only
when we are brave enough to explore
the darkness will we discover
the infinite power of our light.
One of my favorite Christmas gifts (heck – every gift is my favorite), but this one really speaks to my heart and was from the heart of someone who really gets me. It is a quote from a favorite book – Braving the Wilderness by Brene Brown.
It is hanging in a place where I will read it every day, and this will be my mantra – to own my story, to embrace my vulnerabilities, and to not be afraid to explore the darkness, so I can discover my authentic light.
Will you make a New Year’s Resolution? Do you have a mantra or a life verse? Do you choose One Little Word each year?
Cheers & Hugs,
