Before the mischievous leprechauns turned my world upside down last Wednesday ( St Patrick’s Day) I took writing a daily blog for granted.
True, occasionally, the cousins -the computer gremlins, would play tricks with me, but on the whole my daily life was pretty predictable… and a quiet confidence surrounded me.
Life decided it was time to shake my daily world up a little-force me out of my comfort zone and turn me in a new direction.
These past few days I have felt like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz on the dark scary path of woods outside the security of the yellow brick road…” Lions and Tigers and Bears. Oh My!”
You might remember before the computer crash we had been examining four life lessons from Brene Brown but had not gotten to the last one-Vulnerability!
Well, I for one, really need that lesson right now!
Brene first dispels two myths about vulnerability-the first is that vulnerability is weakness and the second that it’s optional!
First… not only is vulnerability not a weakness… it probably the most accurate measure of our individual courage!
We all find ourselves in vulnerable situations throughout our lives…so the only choice we truly have is in how we handle these vulnerable moments in life.
Brown says ” The key to transforming vulnerability into courage is learning how to recognize them, feel them, and ultimately make the choice to simply be there, with that horrible tangle of uncertainty and risk! When you know what you are feeling and why, you can slow down, breathe, pray, ask for support-and make choices that reflect who you are and what you believe.
So until tomorrow …thank you readers for your loyal support while I continue learning new programs and trying to decide where my next text niche will fall best for me! ❤️

Since my computer indoor sanctuary has been compromised with all the new programs to learn while in a vulnerable state seeking my own inner courage… my garden has become my go to place for comfort!
Look at all the new flowers I have planted along the garden path with the help of Mother Nature and spring azaleas!
