episode description

Vulnerability. It’s kind of a buzzword, but what is it really? It’s something you choose to do every day. It’s living a wholehearted and open-hearted life. It’s knowing you’re enough no matter what life throws at you. Being vulnerable allows us to make sincere connections with others. In this episode, we dig deep into this topic and discuss what traits a wholehearted person has and how we each can work to cultivate it more in our life.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” –Theodore Roosevelt
