The thought for today is VULNERABILITY. Vulnerability has all too long been perceived as a weakness or soft spot open to attack. The truth is we cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known.
Instead of seeing imperfections as being unworthy of love and belonging, see them as part of learning and growing. Instead of trying to escape from them, face them with couage, compassion and love. In this sense, every difficult situation is a precious opportunity for learning and growing yourself.
When you humbly and vulnerably acknowledge your whole self and reflect on the gifts of every part of yourself, it frees you from the need to be defensive. Being free from defending your position creates an opportunity for peace and compassion not only for yourself but for the entire planet. This video is a must see on Vulnerability.
Today, freely acknowledge at least one of your imperfections and embrace it as fully as a reminder we are all in this together. Acknowledge that You DO make a difference.
