The Daily Vulnerable by Chude Jideonwo: You are not your Emotions Only



We speak a lot about emotions in the newsletter (The Daily Vulnerable).

Because emotions are often the way we react to the world.

But we aren’t just emotions. Don’t play small, and don’t cop out.

We are mind. The ability to dream, believe, envision and the plan.

We are body. The gift of health, sex, food.

We are actions. The capacity to create, innovate, multiply, expand, change.

We are also X – everything that we can be and have not become. Everything we can do but have not yet done.

We are multitude.

And our ability to bring our fullness into and live fully in each and every moment is the real gift of being truly, gloriously alive.
