“I have learned about love. Love should be easy, free in connection; work, wonderfully so, as in investment; vulnerability balanced with courage, and always undergirded with trust. It should be grace, graced and grateful. It should uplift you.”
Love – we feel it, we know it, we believe in it. And I think it truly is indispensable.. we can’t live without it. As we peel away the layers of love… one I’d like to cover today is:
Vulnerability Balanced with Courage.
Love isn’t always easy for we must be open. Are you willing to love even if you are hurt?
Because a relationship didn’t work the way you’d prefer… or a church committee member spoke harshly to you… your idea got shot down at work or a precious pet ascended to heaven…
I know… it hurts… of course it does…
So be gentle with yourself, first.
But dear leader – we have to have the courage to soften our hearts, stay receptive, and be open to love at all times. And yes, that is at home and work.
This allows us to give the most to the world, and to ourselves.
Yes, at all times.
I know that might be hard to hear… Hang in there…
So there may be something that shut you down recently. Well, it’s time to unshutter the door and open back up. Take your heart out of the basement, or release your self-imposed sequestration in the attic. 🙂
Let’s be those loving, beautiful individuals, who deserve to receive and give love. And other people need it too!
Remember, to receive the benefit of love, we have to have courage.
“Love is Vulnerability Balanced with Courage.”
