I made this collage this past January. I found the quote from a Yoga Journal magazine. It reads, "Through our willingness to experience and share our vulnerability, we discover a shared and compassionate awareness that is spacious enough to hold the imperfections of all humans."
There is a lot of transition going on in my life, and much of what is reflected in this collage is starting to manifest in so many ways for me. I'm leaving a job I've held on to for over 8 years to spend more time with my sweet little boy, and to focus and pursue my art and life coaching in a more bolder, fuller way. Well, that's what I tell myself, anyway. It's mostly true. The other truth though, is that I'm wanting to touch my vulnerability in a deeper way. I want to let go of descriptions and the identity we use to "define" ourselves because it's scary. I need to do things that scare me. I'm seeing that the more I face my fears, the more free I feel. And that's where I find myself today.
So here I am, reflecting on this new inner joy I am discovering daily, and feeling really good about being vulnerable.
