Have the Courage to try New Things without knowing what to expect.

Having the courage to try new things without knowing how they will turn out is something that seems to be lost on so many people in today’s conformist-dominated world.   Courage is not bravery.  Courage is telling the story of who you are by using your whole heart.  Seems like some people conform out of fear -a fear of disconnection.  This video from Brene Brown defines Shame as the ‘fear of disconnection’ – with disconnection meaning, is there something about me that if other people knew it or could see it, it would cause you to feel that you aren’t ‘worthy for connection’, reaffirms that it’s ok to let go of what society thinks you should be, in favor of embracing the ‘you’ that you really are, imperfections and all… The only people who don’t experience shame are those without any ability to feel empathy.  Embrace vulnerability as a way of truly connecting with others and with yourself.  Have the Courage to be Imperfect and the Compassion to be kind to yourself and to others.  True connections happen once you’ve let go of what you’re supposed to be and embrace who you are.  What makes you vulnerable, makes you beautiful…
