Want to Feel Really Alive? Do this Despite your Fear.

Brene Brown has made a living by encouraging folks to allow themselves to feel vulnerable and do the thing anyway—write the book, give the PTA speech, stick up for yourself at dinner club. She says that what we see as courage on the outside often feels like vulnerability on the inside.

What I’ve noticed about vulnerability is that I feel most vulnerable when I’m unsure of the outcome. When there is no guarantee that the speech will be a success or the dinner date will end in romance.

Your Work

“How” is not your work.

Your work is to define what you want. To imagine it into being. To dream.

Your work is to feel good.

Your work is to follow the bread crumbs of passion, excitement, fun, interest, curiosity, and wonder.

Your work is to trust that you are not meant to create alone. Your work is to believe that the Universe is delivering your wishes to you even before you can see them.
