Allow yourself to be vulnerable

Allow yourself to be vulnerable

Fashion

Today I’ve been contemplating a lot. There’s a lot going on in my life and I’ve got decisions to make regarding so many areas in my life. I don’t want to and cannot go into them all yet, but you guys will be with me on this trip so hang in there and you’ll find out eventually. What’s been on the top of my mind today has been the issue of allowing myself to be vulnerable. The word can be interpreted in so many ways, but I’m thinking in the way you expose yourself to the world in general. By exposing yourself you for sure are also more prone to risks. But putting that fact aside; by exposing and revealing yourself and what you truly think, what you stand for and who you are, you actually are putting yourself out there to a huge range of opportunities.

Without all the issues I’ve had with vulnerability during the past year I wouldn’t be where I am today. There’s still a long way to go and I’m one of those people who will probably be completely satisfied anyway, but I’m on my way there. That got kinda deep and incomprehensible for anyone who’s not reading my thoughts right now, but I just needed to put it out there. Have a great Friday night you all!

And speaking of exposing… I had thai massage tonight and the masseuse said “you body like little thaiii booiii” which resulted in me buying a box of chocolates on my way home. So here’s the half naked truth about my lil thai body 😉

    Such a great post, Thomas! Love how you get personal with us here on your blog and are so honest. I believe that vulnerability is so important because a lot of times people try so hard to mask their imperfections and other things that they feel ashamed of. In the end we’re all just too hard on ourselves and it’s good to remember who we are deep down and just embrace it, and not be afraid to show it! Great photos as always. Have a great weekend love xo, sharon

      I’m glad to hear (well not glad, but I’m glad to hear it helps) that I’m not the only one feeling that either! Thanks for the honest comment, Linh!

    It’s so important to not be hard on ourselves. Just be who you are and think less about what other people may think. Just don’t care. It works well. Life is busy anyways to worry so much! Right?! And i love the honesty of most Thai ladies! So cute!! xo, Adelina
