What if change is necessary in order to grow?

What if I were to step out of my comfort zone and take a risk?

What if I concentrate on the good that could come of this, rather than the bad?

What would I get?

I reconnected with old friends and colleagues- one led me to a volunteer opportunity which reconnected me with a passion that been long ago set aside.

My passion for working with animals introduced me to a new community.  A community of those with vulnerabilities. Through this work, my own vulnerabilities began to surface.  I started to realize that I had to walk away from my rackets and winning formulas that were holding me back- thought I did not have this language at the time.

I left my job in December after over ten years and accepted a position with Ascendigo Autism Services as their Finance Manager, putting another set of skills to work in support of those with vulnerabilities.

I began to see the power that embracing and expressing my vulnerabilities gives to others through my work in RFL and I realized that I have been expressing something that I have been missing; something I thought was never allowed; something I have been seeking in a leader.

Interpersonal connectedness, flexibility, and emotional expression are areas that I need to make a conscious effort to improve, and all require a level of vulnerability.

So what if vulnerability is actually a good thing?

What if I allow other to be vulnerable?

What if I allow myself to vulnerable?

What if I concentrate on the good that could come of this, rather than the bad?

What would I get?
