There is something so incredibly wonderful and beautiful about moments of vulnerability. It’s 4 a.m. and I just hopped up in bed because these words want to land on the page.
Last night I had one of those vulnerable moments. In the middle of doing what I do the most comfortably and confidently, I found myself doing probably the one thing I do with the least comfort and confidence. I sang a few lines from a song I’m working on. Long story short, the painter in me doesn’t want to make room for the singer. The singer is an insecure, timid little thing that hasn’t fully accepted his voice or found his groove yet. Blah, blah, blah, I could go on. Basically, I get terrified at the idea of being seen in any way other than amazing — hence the anxiety!
So I woke up thinking about all of the vulnerable moments people in my life have shared with me and just how beautiful those were for me and how intense they might have been for them. Some of those moments may not have been acknowledged as deeply meaningful in real time for any number of reasons. I would like to take the opportunity to do that now.
If you have ever personally or publicly shared a moment of vulnerability with me, THANK YOU!!! Thank you for counting me among the people and places where you feel safe, or where you feel brave. Thank you for allowing me to experience that part of you. I cherish those moments dearly.
If you have something on your mind that you want to share, something you feel you want to express,
- a song to sing
- a story to tell
- a bone to pick
- a moment to celebrate
- a position to try
- a poem to read
- a confession to make
If the idea of that moment makes you feel a little tingly inside or makes you feel frozen and faint-hearted, find somewhere or someone that makes you feel safe enough or brave enough to be vulnerable. Friend, family member, or lover, find them and have that moment. Chances are high that it just might make you feel amazing inside.
Just something I felt compelled to share!
Love them as they are, have amazing sex, and communicate with intention.
