Keep Showing Up
“In a world where perfectionism, pleasing, and proving are used as armor to protect our egos and our feelings, it takes a lot of courage to show up and be all in when we can’t control the outcome. It also takes discipline and self-awareness to understand what to share and with whom. Vulnerability is not oversharing, it’s sharing with people who have earned the right to hear our stories and our experiences. Vulnerability is not weakness; it’s our greatest measure of courage.”― Brené Brown, Atlas of the Heart: Mapping Meaningful Connection and the Language of Human Experience
Imperfect and authentic.
Salt and light.
Brilliant color, soft hue.
With energy and enthusiasm.
No permission or approval required.
Be yourself always.
As certain and welcome as the sunrise.
Keep showing up.
“when I’m prioritizing being liked over being free, I was much sweeter but less authentic. Now I’m kinder and less judgmental. But also firmer and more solid. Occasionally salty.”― Brené Brown, Atlas of the Heart: Mapping Meaningful Connection and the Language of Human Experience
