On Vulnerability

I watched this TED talk yesterday and really loved it. 

http://www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_on_vulnerability#t-840284

My big takeaway from the talk was this: 

We often try to numb the feeling of vulnerability, since it is associated with negative feelings (insecurity, shame, fear). But by numbing vulnerability, we also numb joy, creativity and the ability to love.

Enjoy feeling uncomfortable. You can go up or down only after you step out the door…

All’s right with the world.
