My Wish for Your Life | 30 weeks, To be Vulnerable {maternity self-portrait series}

You’ll learn over time that life is interesting.  Sometimes it can be confusing and hard and sometimes it can be lighthearted and exhilarating.  You will sometimes feels the ho-hum of the daily grind, and sometimes you will feel so alive and humming with electricity, in harmony with the universe, that everything feels “just right” and exactly as it should be.   Through it all, good and bad, feel deeply.  Don’t be afraid to really feel.  Acknowledge your feelings and embrace them, protect them, give them a home.  There is only strength in recognizing how you feel and being ok with it.  No need to hide or shove them down inside.  Be willing to be vulnerable, to show your softness.  Don’t be afraid to open yourself up, to put yourself on the line for things you want and believe in, especially in a friendship or relationship with a significant other.  For when someone meets you there, in your vulnerable space, and you find comfort, and peace and trust, you can be 100% yourself without fear.  The deeper you feel, the deeper you love, the deeper you experience all the beauty life has to offer.
