Day 7, 30-day #candleflame challenge.
“As essence turns to ocean,/the particles glisten./
Watch how in this candleflame instant/blaze all the moments you have lived.”
Safety. Security. Protection. Defense.
I’m dealing a lot in these things these days for work.
I’m learning a lot about risk
Preparedness. Recovery. Connection.
I love that my business
Are all at their core about helping people and the world.
Comes up a lot too.
Make such a difference
Raising the bar.
How do we feel safe? How do we feel secure?
When everything sometimes feels rocky.
I sometimes wonder
What I could have prevented.
Had I put up more defenses.
Protected myself or someone else more.
I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve
Leading with vulnerability and openness.
I am a leaper
A risk taker
A let’s do it
Kind of gal.
But I do wear a life preserver
I wear my seat belt.
I do use two factor authentication.
And block weirdos.
I do scan the scene.
Most people are good
And mean well.
But that doesn’t mean
We shouldn’t be a little weary.
Just a touch,
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
With hearts, passwords, tech and intellectual property
Yes I’m defensive and want to be proactive, protected,
But in life I tend to agree with Brene Brown…
Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change.
I think one can do, be and have all of those things.
Be guarded, but open.
And lead with love.
And know that nobody is bigger than a kneecap.
Thank you for giving that little heart below a nudge if you liked this. :)
