« I spent a lot of years trying to outrun or outsmart vulnerability by making things certain and definite, black and white, good and bad. My inability to lean into the discomfort of vulnerability limited the fullness of those important experiences that are wrought with uncertainty: Love, belonging, trust, joy, and creativity to name a few. » Brene Brown
Often when I get stressed or frustrated, it’s because some impossible standard of perfection isn’t being met. I have to remind myself, daily, hourly: nothing is certain, nothing is concrete, nothing is perfect. And it’s never going to be perfect. Not my body, not my relationship, not my confidence. But I can accept my body just the way it is and have incredible, exhilarating experiences in my beautifully imperfect body. I can love with my whole heart, letting go of fears and walls, and experience the magic and wonder and mess of loving fully and being loved truly. I can do what scares me, even when I don’t feel quite ready; failing gloriously or succeeding triumphantly, rejoicing in either because both signify that I was brave and that I did something. I let go of my comfort zone, of safety and the illusion of certainty. I leap into the wild adventure of vulnerability, openness, and imperfection.
