The Power of Vulnerability

Hosting book club last week with my FAB friends!

Hey friends!  Happy Sunday.  I hope you had a fabulous weekend!  My weekend was super busy, but I don’t mind (I like it like that).  Last week, I hosted my best friends at my bachelorette pad for a LOOOONG overdue book club meeting/wine night.  We start the book club over 3 years ago, but unfortunately have not met in the last 18 months.  Needless to say, we very much appreciated the time together AND thoroughly enjoyed our book, Daring Greatly by Brené Brown (yay Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday crew).

Daring Greatly is all about the power of vulnerability.  While putting ourselves in vulnerable situations often makes us feel weak, it’s actually one of the most empowering actions we can take to strengthen our relationships and our sense of self-worth.

The week I had a unique opportunity to “choose vulnerablity” by sharing a video that I think makes me look “weak.”  Here’s a little back story…last summer I met an awesome producer, Clint Howard, via Thumbtack who developed the GRIT promo video that’s my studio’s website.  A few days ago he sent me this “behind the scenes” video he created.  I hesitated to share it because I want to put on a “strong/girlboss” image, but after thinking about it some more I decided it’s good for me to be totally transparent and let my clients and blog followers know exactly why GRIT exists and why the #GRITFAM means the world to me.  You can watch the video below…

While I run the risk of being made fun of, negative feedback, etc., I’m comfortable enough in my own skin to face whatever outcomes may be.  Most importantly, I believe in the vision of GRIT Fitness so much that I want to make intentions crystal clear.  Quite honestly, this is the first time in my life that I’ve felt this way and it’s so liberating!  Having a truly unique personal passion/ life purpose is simply the best.  And for it, I’m forever grateful.
