In the mornings I say an abundance prayer. I learned it from my friend Tony and it goes something like this: “Thank you for the joyful abundance in my life and in the life of my family and friends. Thank you for the abundance that will come into my life today. And thank you for the abundance that I can bring to others today.” Every time I say the part about “thank you for the abundance that will come into our lives today,” I get excited. I’m like a kid waiting for his birthday, waiting to see what abundance and wonderful things will show up as the day progresses. It’s an exciting way to live – always waiting for the next generous miracle to show up.
Vulnerability is not such a dirty, scary word because it holds the key to connection. The key to opening the doors between each other. Brene Brown, author, researcher and academic specializing in vulnerability and shame said, “Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
YOU ARE the hero. I am the hero. And we ARE the sum of our journeys, both the good and the bad. Without the times where we are face down in the mud, we wouldn’t appreciate the times when our faces are turned to a blue sky with a summer sun and the cool breeze at it skips across our skin, but staying stuck in the places were the dark things happen is not what a hero does.
I'm a professional writer and researcher who found a love and intense interest in the personal narrative. I have a Master's degree in Folklore and an ongoing desire to use all the great things I've learned and continue to learn, about story, to add some value to the world, and maybe along the way lift and bless with the crazy cool power that comes with understanding this phenomenal tool. This podcast opens doors you maybe didn't even know were closed. Have a blast throwing the doors open and exploring what is inside! For a further introduction, listen to episode 000.
