I'm reading a new book called, Daring Greatly by Brene Brown. In the chapter today she talks about vulnerability. How we think that being vulnerable makes look like we're weak, and yet it makes us courageous.
I guess that's what happens when we blog. We put out into the world what we're thinking about. We put our thoughts and more importantly our emotions for others to read. Sometimes that's really hard.
I celebrated my 2 year anniversary (this go around) at Weight Watchers this week. Each Monday I go to the meeting and like those courageous enough to do a twelve step program, admit I have a problem. I don't know how to handle the food in my life. I show up...I think that's another part of being vulnerable. I put all of myself on the line as I wait to weigh in. I test my choices for the week against the number on the scale.
But, I think all WW and Spark People are the courageous side of vulnerability. We do show up. We try, we're human. We're vulnerable. That's why I love Spark People and blogging.
