Carnival Vulnerability – Week of Yes 

I am afraid of being vulnerable. I don’t like the idea of someone knowing things about me. I don’t like the idea of someone being able to use those things against me.

If I had to describe myself to you, I’d say I was that campfire marshmallow that caught on fire once, and melted off my appealing layer. I could be sweet, but what if you burn your hands peeling me off to get to the gooey middle? Or what if you get sick after indulging? I am burnt after all.

But this is my week of yes, and someone challenged me to be vulnerable, so that’s what I’m going to do. It’s not a weakness to be vulnerable it’s a strength.

I’ll let you know how it goes!

  1. Being vulnerable is opening yourself to your life, right? Being there with others…sometimes you are burned…other times you are loved for your open heart. Peace.
