Living Whole-Heartedly ...

One of my favorite authors (Elizabeth Gilbert, of "Eat, Pray, Love") writing about one of my favorite speakers (Brene Brown) about one of my favorite topics (vulnerability):

What separates people who live their lives "whole-heartedly" from people who do not? The answers may surprise you. Whole-hearted living, it seems, has everything to do with embracing vulnerability. The whole-hearted among us are the ones who are able to risk extreme vulnerability again and again in their lives — to sit with discomforting feelings, to courageously share their true emotions, to take the chance being judged and ridiculed, to accept the possibility of failing — all in the name of living a complete human experience. And all in the name of loving one another with totality.
