If you have not seen this talk - watch it now!  It's a few years old but every time I watch it I pick up more and more.

I was chatting to a good friend today about vulnerability.  About letting people in, knowing who you are and being proud of it.  We talked about facades and how we all have one in varying degrees, because we need to play this game called life.  However the deeper we delve into our spirituality and self-knowing we want to make solid, soul connections.

Connection is why we are here. It is what gives up purpose and meaning to our lives.

KEY components to vulnerability

Courage – to tell the story of who you are with your whole heart

Compassion – to be kind to yourself and in turn to others

Connection – as a result of authenticity – letting go of who you think you should be in order to be who you are
