Over the weekend we went to visit Mike's family in Pittsburgh. Since we stayed home for Christmas we wanted to catch up, and exchange gifts.
Mike's sister has two adorable little girls who are so much fun to be with. I think one of the reasons people find so much joy in spending time with children is that they are just so open and vulnerable. Then along the way we learn how to judge and how it feels to be judged by others.
I just watched this TED talk and it really inspired me to allow myself - or force myself, because it's not easy - to be a little more vulnerable.
