remember this whenever you get nervous

 {photo by Ibai Acevedo}

" When we were children, we used to think that when we were grown up, we would no longer be vulnerable. But to grow up is to accept vulnerability. To be alive is to be vulnerable"

I read your post title, without even scrolling down yet, and I FELT DEEPLY ENGAGED! It has really touched me...

Yes, when I was young, I thought I won't get nervous anymore. It thought it was only a childish thing. But, I guess, having experienced it as a child has helped me cope with it better as I grow older.

It's a simple but really really beautiful post! Love the photo, too! :)

wow that's a food for thought.
growing up involves letting more people in, thus the fragility of ourselves is out there in the open.

That's a really profound quote, but it's also true and I like it!
Have fun reading all these September issues! Have you seen the documentary, The September Issue, following Anna Wintour? It's really good and if you haven't you have to watch it!
