Something Beautiful: Vulnerable

What is it about the word vulnerable that makes my skin crawl? That makes me want to run and hide? 

Vulnerable: capable of being physically or emotionally wounded; open to attack or damage. 

For a really long time I've found ways to avoid the things that make me feel most vulnerable. Now, all of a sudden, everything that I've worked so hard to keep buried inside is making its way to the surface. Why am I thinking about this? Why do I even care? It's never bothered me before. 

So I'm doing this thing. I'm using something I love to do and combining it with something I'm completely uncomfortable with. I am opening myself up, making myself feel vulnerable in an effort to heal. I'm using my art, my photography to heal. I'm taking everything that makes me laugh, hurt, cry and turning it into something beautiful. This is the beginning.



My lovely friend, Britney ,and I created this project, Something Beautiful, where we will take everything we are and embrace it. We will push each other as artists and encourage each other to heal through photography. We will grow and we will let go.
