A Wonder Poem

Wonder

Lives in all places
Where light and dark
Play and roam, fancy
To find the tome

Of your heart’s desire

Where lives the fire
That stood that night
When times were a fright

Yet, were also alright

Because you knew
the Truth
About a life that lives
By light

That Wonder

Extinguishes the darkness
Of all the hours

Until the flowers bloom

And also always loom
Like a boon
Of Wonder, for
You to discover

Know It is always alight

And knows
You are alright
Even in times of
Discorded plunder

When you are asunder

There is and
Will always be Wonder

Have a wonderful evening, everyone.

In response to the WDYS prompt #53 by Sadje on Keep it Alive.

An Insight, An Inspiration, and A Quote: On Being Vulnerable

Insight

Vulnerability is a wonderful gift. When we choose vulnerability over fear, we open ourselves up to learn more about ourselves and all of humanity.

For a long time I chose fear. Not so today. In the spirit of vulnerability, here is a video I created last week on the importance of being vulnerable.

Inspiration

I am inspired by everyone in my life, and everyone I meet. All of them. This past week, I was particularly inspired by a colleague of mine. Terri Houde is a Corporate Trainer, works on our team, and created the following video about an upcoming video series. Check out vulnerability in action. Inspiring.

A Quote

“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.” -Helen Keller

“Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it’s having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome. Vulnerability is not weakness; it’s our greatest measure of courage.” “People who wade into discomfort and vulnerability and tell the truth about their stories are the real badasses.” – BRENÉ BROWN
