What have you done today that made you feel or be Vulnerable?
Of course it all depends on your definition of the word Vulnerable. The 'older' dictionaries present vulnerability as a weakness, as something that you do not want to show because if you do, 'you let yourself open to censure and criticism; or worse, of being physically and emotionally wounded'. These definitions are very dispiriting and demoralizing; enough to remove confidence from someone and create among them a sort of passivity. That's when the hiding starts. Vulnerability is truly a very empowering word. Vulnerability allows you to be who you truly are. Vulnerability is the ability to step up to your true self all-ways. Vulnerability is part of the experience that makes you the beautiful being that you are. Vulnerability is to dare be you in your authenticity.
