10 Life Changing Quotes About Being Vulnerable



Hey there, Besties!  I hope your weekend was wonderful!  I'm coming atcha live from Spring Break '17!  Our days so far have been filled with family time, lots of fun, but very little sleep, as my littlest boy has adopted the habit of waking mama up 5-6 times per night.  Needless to say, both of us have been indulging in daily self care naps.  #teachemyoung  

Today's post is all about vulnerability, which you already know I'm a huge, huge fan of.    There is something so beautiful and brave about being who we are and not feeling like we have to apologize for it.  There is so much freedom in that.  People often say "it is what it is."  I think of vulnerability as saying, "I am who I am."  Not that we can't change if we want to, but just giving ourselves room to be our authentic selves is so liberating.  Here are my ten favorite quotes about vulnerability...and no I will not apologize for the many Brene Brown quotes.  #IamwhoIam  ;)

"Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it's having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome. Vulnerability is not weakness; it's our greatest measure of courage."  - Brene Brown

"Daring greatly means the courage to be vulnerable.  It means to show up and be seen.  To ask for what you need.  To talk about how you're feeling.  To have the hard conversations." - Brene Brown

"The things we do to avoid vulnerability end up causing us more pain than vulnerability itself." - unknown

"Do it trembling if you must, but do it."  - Emmet Fox

"It's ok to be scared.  Being scared means you're about to do something really, really brave." - unknown

"Don't feel guilty for doing what's best for you." - unknown 

"Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, accountability, and authenticity." - Brene Brown

"Authenticity requires vulnerability, transparency, and integrity." - Janet Louise Stevenson

"Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light." - Brene Brown

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better.  The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt
