Being open and honest about one's weaknesses, hurt and vulnerabilities is one of the toughest, but also most rewarding things in life. Our need to be seen, to be heard, to be understood, is great. And the hurt of not being that - even greater. A very wise woman, by the name of Anna, recently shared her thoughts about this with me. Words I simply cannot go without sharing, as they are the wisest thing I have read in a long long time: "The only thing worse than being vulnerable, is to suffer the consequences of not being vulnerable." (😍!!)
But when and where - and to whom - should we dare be vulnerable? That's maybe the trickiest part to figure out. I do feel though, that we should try to dare a little bit more. Because it is in our weaknesses that our true strength lies. (It's a cliché, but it's so true!) And this strenght, this "weak" one, is what the world is in absolute dire need of. The sensitive one. The empathetic one. The one built on (mutual) trust and understanding. And we cannot get there if we never dare show ourselves. We cannot expect to raise a more sensitive generation, if we don't work on becoming more sensitive ourselves. So maybe try it. Choose a safe person, or even just a sheet if paper, and reveal yourself. What hurts? What are you afraid of? What are you ashamed of? What do you feel you need? It's sooo scary, I know. But dare. See where it takes you. It might even be contagious and lead to a whole new level of love and understanding. 🌸🕊✨ #unity #love #vulnerability #dare #life #heal #open #dream #happiness #understanding #magic #world #trust #empathy #believe #onelove #peace #togetherness #true #beauty

Introducing Puki, the Pukeko! Working with me in the studio today but taking a break for a bit of self care!
Ahhhh...we could all learn from his example!
Side note.. this guy or gal (can't tell, don't care) is a wild bird that comes to visit pretty much daily.
I know I wanted to manifest some help in the studio but this wasn't quite what I had in mind 😂
