Vulnerability = Beauty

The other day I took some time to myself and listened to this great talk which my wonderful friends at BodyZen posted on their Facebook page.

The speaker is Brene Brown and she speaks some amazing words that are completely soul reviving!  Take 20 minutes to sit down and watch it if you dare.

Basically, among other great messages in the talk, the main focus is that being vulnerable is a powerful tool.

Brene Brown is a researcher and in a nutshell did a study on what makes women content and happy.  She found that women who were truly happy and content within themselves:

  • had the courage to be imperfect
  • had compassion to be kind firstly to themselves and only then to others
  • had a connection with people as a result of authenticity
  • had a complete vulnerablility which made them beautiful

My challenge is to you:  be imperfect, have compassion, connect by being authentic, be vulnerable and sit back with a contented sigh!

  1. Thanks Tameeka, it's definitely a struggle juggling life these days as we all want to be more in control and not let things slip. I'm definitely going to endeavour to be a little more imperfect.
