It’s OK!

VulnerableWhen most people think about being “vulnerable” it immediately evokes negative thoughts and feelings. After all, who wants to be susceptible to an attack or criticism – or even position themselves to be wounded or hurt? More than likely it is accurate to say, nobody!

Well, the good news is being vulnerable doesn’t have to be all negative,  according to Brené Brown, whose recent stint on Oprah’s LifeClass series has everyone rethinking how they feel about being vulnerable! When it’s all said and done, she says, opening yourself up to vulnerability brings:

  • Creativity
  • Happiness
  • Joy
  • Contentment
  • The feeling that you have a place in the world
  • Connection, and more

If you would like to expand your perceptions, gain or enhance your sense of self-worth or simply just learn how to become courageous when faced with being vulnerable, please join us for our upcoming Open-Mic event. See details below.
