Every day, we walk the line between vulnerability and courage.
We often assume courage to be a loud, brazen act that requires attention and praise. The brave people do things without doubt, all in with gusto.
But I've learned courage is perhaps one of the most quiet, subtle, smallest powers we can experience.
Vulnerability is the courage to be true to yourself. Being open, being authentic, requires a risk -- you let go of the outcome of what you want to happen and care more about being aligned with your truth.
The act of courage is to be honest and forthright with all you do, say, respect in your life. With your body, with yourself, in relationship to others.
Courage is not the absence of fear, but the choice of leading with your heart. And the ability to listen and lead with this heart, that is the power of vulnerability.
