Showing up is vulnerability.
Standing for is vulnerability.
Staying still is vulnerability.
All acts of leadership are vulnerable.
Any moment lived with authenticity is….
The most important life skill
is to stand still with a naked heart…
Feeling the softest wind on the skin;
Drenched, when rain of judgements washes us over;
Shivering, when fear shakes every foundation;
Blown away, when joy marries madness;
Enflamed, when rage comes from deepest violation;
Dissolved, when tears know no other way;
And empty, when there is nothing else to hold on…
Vulnerability is rendezvous with Self!
