Perfect is a suit made of gloss.
Vulnerability comes naked with dirt and dross.
It is not weak to be vulnerable.
We all make mistakes.
Vulnerability is fear.
Vulnerability is pain.
Perfection is an illusion that seeks fame.
Get in the arena.
Play the game.
Let your critics in the cheap seats have their say.
Then turn around and carry on with your day.
Vulnerability is courage in the face of hostility.
Keep doing what you love anyway.
