6: Share, express, make yourself vulnerable

You’re a human person. You intrinsically look for exchange, for soul mates, for different perspectives. Your curiosity is dominating you – at least it should because as adults we often tend to lose this child-like (not childish) curiosity the older we get. Actors are a good example of how you don’t lose the sense for play and fun activities. Should I now become an actor?

Yes and no. Imagine your life as a story, a plot. Now picture your world as a stage or film set. What would you be acting like? What would your role be? Would be the protagonist? The ally? The side-kick? Or even the enemy?

Guess what? You can be all that and way more.

Read that again. The limits on what you do and become only happens in your head, and, well some physical boundaries also exist if you thought of becoming an outer space astronaut or beyond. Think further, stretch your thought. What do you see? Now, go one step more, two steps, three. Are you still able to walk that thought? Then put into words, write it down and walk your talk.

Oh, that’s scary now. Right? Walking the talk actually means that you commit. Super scary. You will do the things you say. You are really doing it.

It became reality. You just gave birth to the strongest idea, concept or thought that rushed through your head like blood. You caught it and now it’s yours. Nourish it, treat it well, treat it with care, let it grow, and when it’s big enough to stand on its own feet, let it go. It’s sad, but you have to let it go. Train your bye-bye muscle. The more often you do it, the better you become.


The take-away from today: By allowing a curated openness, an openness that you decide, you initiate exchange and let people enter your world. You allow them to enter. It’s a privilege. In this privileged world you are who you want. It’s scary to pursue your dreams but it’s fuck*** exciting as well. Make it reality.

Enjoy your Monday.
