Vid of the Week: Brene Brown & Vulnerability

I saw this video yesterday for the first time and my response was, "YES!" This is a great summary of what I have also discovered over the past decade of working at The Dam. It is also part of the recipe for becoming a True Rebel! SO GOOD!!

My Friend Henry

It was a pretty normal night hanging out at 'The Curb' as it was known in Heart Lake. The parking lot area behind Canadian Tire in the Heart Lake Town Centre was home to the skateboard culture of Heart Lake throughout my years of high school during the warmer months. It was affectionately known as "The Curb" because of the long curb that we spent time waxing, the skaters spent time grinding and the onlookers spent time sitting on.

Just Dance!

I had a big crush on Elizabeth Shue when I was a kid. In 1987 Adventures in Babysitting came out and it started with Shue, playing Chris Parker, singing and dancing in her bedroom. That was enough for me. There is something about getting a glimpse of someone (even a character in a movie) having fun when nobody is supposed to be watching. There is a vulnerability and genuine joy about those moments. I don't think we let other people see us being silly enough.

Because of the Shame

I've had the song "Because of the Shame" by Against Me! in my head over the weekend. Particularly because it really connects with the last couple blog posts.

The chorus goes;

Because of the shame I associate with vulnerability
I am numbing myself completely.
Can you hear me right now?

Our Worst Fear

“You don’t belong here.”

I don’t remember the actual words he used, but that is what stayed with me.
