the wholehearted


dear friends 
in dr. brené brown's ted talk "the power of vulnerability," she says that in order for human connection to happen, we have to allow ourselves to be really seen. we must, she says, have the courage to believe that we are worthy of love and belonging when we show up not as who we think we should be, but as who we are.

these are the vulnerable; these are the wholehearted. 

i believe that embodying vulnerability also means encouraging others to let down their guard and share not only what is on their mind, but also what is in their heart. this is the basis of authentic connection and honest communication, and the best tool that we have to be truly seen, heard, and felt. 
after all, that's what we really want, isn't it?
let's strive to live, and foster others to live as the wholehearted do:

perfectly imperfect and beautifully human.   

wander the path of wonder

sharing inspiration, sparking curiosity, reminding you to stay magical.
