what makes you vulnerable, makes you beautiful.

"What makes you vulnerable, makes you beautiful."  I heard this line earlier in the week while listening to an online presentation on vulnerability (link here) and had one of those Time Stops moments.  With me writing about this now- days later- it's obvious that this line has been on my mind.  What makes you vulnerable, makes you beautiful.  Do me a … Continue reading what makes you vulnerable, makes you beautiful.
