I know VULNERABILITY is the glue that holds a relationship together. I realize that when you hear this, your mind may immediately go to you and another person; but I speak of the relationship you have with you – who you are to you when no one else is watching.
Let’s choose to stop hiding behind the person our family members and sometimes friends only get a chance to see. Are you willing to become Vulnerable to you and just let go? If you choose to take on my challenge of letting go and becoming vulnerable to you, let me congratulate you on the very first step in freeing you to be you.
Let’s take a look at the definition of the word vulnerable, just to make sure this is what you truly are willing to take on, today.
1. capable of being physically or emotionally wounded or hurt
2. open to temptation, persuasion, censure, etc.
[from Late Latin vulnerābilis, from Latin vulnerāre to wound, from vulnus a wound]
vulnerability , vulnerableness , vulnerably adv

There you have it, 1. Capable of being physically or emotionally wounded or hurt.
Now that is a clear cut definition, wouldn’t you say? After reading that, are you ready to agree to take on being vulnerable to You?
Let me reassure you that it is totally ok to not be the strong one – ALL OF THE TIME!
Give yourself permission to have a “not so good attitude for the day.” What’s more important is you recognize it the moment it happens. Acknowledging and becoming aware to your everyday feeling is a huge step to staying present to where you are and deciding not to be stuck there, but quickly recover and be grateful for the rest of your day.
3 Ways to Stay Present
- Close your eyes and feel your surroundings
- When in a grocery store look around and acknowledge everything you see
- Touch something and allow yourself to feel the energy from it (I know its new but give it a try)
Understand, the moment you take on any new venture toward your adjusted life and how you choose to respond to bumps in your day, it’s a given that resistance will show up. What you have to ask yourself when this happens is, “Will I choose to be stuck in this moment and surrender my entire day or choose to move on and have a great rest of the day?” Which will it be for you?
I hope that the latter is your choice of being vulnerable to You today and you keep it moving toward making a precise decision to enjoy your day in spite of your feelings for a few moments.
If this has helped you in any way please do me a favor and share on Facebook and Twitter or any other social media site you and your friends may hang out – I know you want them to get help as well.
Thanks for stopping by, today, and have a Super Vulnerable Day.
