A quickie lunchtime found poem. And as always, they are so magically representative of what’s going on in my noggin. Love this easy way to add some extra creativity into the day.
I crashed into my own story, heart pounding, tired, and fragile.
Afraid of feelings like mine.
But then, in another instant I walked forward with pure intuition.
“Vulnerability is the only authentic state. Being vulnerable means being open, for wounding, but also for pleasure. Being open to the wounds of life means also being open to the bounty and beauty. Don’t mask or deny your vulnerability: it is your greatest asset. Be vulnerable: quake and shake in your boots with it. the new goodness that is coming to you, in the form of people, situations, and things can only come to you when you are vulnerable, i.e. open.”
