Printed this off – I love it!
I “Do something where there are no guarantees”. I just have to notice an opportunity and dive in.
I really like the visuals on this poster. I recall hearing Brene Brown talking about this on stage which I saw on her documentary on Netflix. I think it is still showing there. The visual seems to go deeper (for me) especially the visual of the heart – how part of it is dark due to fear, shame and disappointment. The word The concept ‘Wholeheartedly’ stood out for me in this poster as I could see that the heart in the visual is half shut and half open. What I see from this visual is that you can’t be joyFUL if half of your heart is shut off. It’s like having a half empty cup. I really like this. It also made me think of Wholemeal bread as I love the wholemeal and not the half grain bread that is made due to taking all the goodness of the grain out of it. The same is for Olive oil. You can have extra virgin oil which is oil extracted from perfectly ripened olives. I like the idea of experimenting with stop controlling and predicting. It encourages me to become aware when I move into control and make go into the imagined future.
Wonderful comparisons with whole-wheat bread and olive oil, Michelle. It made me think of processed food vs raw food. Can we be raw, authentic and unpolished?
I love this too! When we “think” we are feeling vulnerable we are actually stopping vulnerability! We are stopping living with open hearts.
My intention has been to live with an open heart then I go about my business trying to protect my heart. Resistance sets in and I am anything BUT open! This “cartoon” is a perfect reminder to let that $hit go and be open to reality. And a much fuller experience of life.
I am getting there!!
