The ability to articulate what you think and how you feel with certainty exemplifies patience and commitment to growth. Being vague with our desires and areas of focus frees us from accountability and ultimately lands as avoidance. It is increasingly rare & beautiful to be decided.
Vulnerability, at its heart, is the willingness to show up and be seen when you can’t control perception.
∆ Brené Brown on vulnerability
little things that aren't little:
"of course i remember"
the ability to maintain a journal
people apologizing for things that happened a long time ago
chopped fruits from parents
the last bite
being asked for your opinion
minor tone changes
when they offer you their coat
"you were right"
when they give you the bigger slice
when you're both running late
a calmed nervous system when around them
when they pay attention to what you show them
"i feel the same way"
