i listened to a beautiful talk on vulnerability today. i think i have become a lot sappier since having elodie, or maybe i was always this way, maybe a bit tougher? i'm not sure. but something in the way i want her to feel as she grows, helps me relate more to the person i am still crafting. and when i say crafting, i don't mean an online persona, i mean the person my family, friends and strangers interact with daily.
the main premise of the talk is that if we live whole-heartedly, aka be vulnerable, we will experience more joy, creativity and, ultimately, more connections with others. this takes a lot of courage but i know that in all aspects of my life practicing this principle has allowed me to learn so much. so it looks like i do have a resolution after all. why couldn't i just pick being more tidy? (michael would have preferred that i'm sure...)
