Alright y'all… I’m super pumped to report I was vulnerable last week! In a real-life-hard-to-be-vulnerable-kind-of-way. I can’t wait for you to hear how I got to practice being vulnerable, how I almost wasn’t and my dear friend’s ✨amazing✨ response. Give it a watch 👀👇
Stay the Course
All we can control in life are our thoughts and actions. How do we bring our best selves to the day?
How’d you do? What was challenging? Did you experience empathy when you found the courage to be vulnerable?
As we learned last week, shame and fear keep us from being vulnerable. We live and operate as the person we think we should be rather than who God made us to be.
Challenge for the week: Write down what keeps you from being vulnerable AND what areas in your life you hide from others.* Then, share with one of your closest confidants! Your spouse, a friend, your mom – you know who your people are! The first step is finding the courage to be vulnerable. Would love to share some of your stories next week! (@LP I’m gonna ask if you did this… 😉)
*A past struggle, a current struggle, a circumstance, a past choice that haunts you that you let define you, a fear, a worry you think is silly that no one could possibly understand.
Trust me - there is nothing too weird or too silly or too dark to hide. You are not outside of the realm of redemption. Jesus is bigger than that. And (bonus!) when you share who you really are with people - what’s really going on - others get to know the real you!
As we learned from Brené last week:
Vulnerability is the last thing I want you to see in me, but the first thing I look for in you.
Let’s be catalysts for change in vulnerability. Let’s be open to sharing what’s going on, knowing God is bigger than all of it and trusting we will grow when we choose to be vulnerable. You got this, I’m excited to hear how it goes.
Stay Curious
What are you learning? How do we hold postures that hear?
  • More from Brené Brown on vulnerability (<20 minute TED Talk). I urge you to find the courage to be imperfect, to be compassionate with yourself and know you are worthy of love and belonging.
  • Lauren Akins on Annie F. Downs’ podcast (been listening to a lot of “That Sounds Fun” as of late). Lauren shares how vulnerability leads to community and the life it brings.
Stay Light
How you get that close of shave on your face?
