On tenderness

In light of last week's post about finding where our personal emotional and mental boundaries need to be, I wanted to share this quote from I've been saving it since I saw it on HelloGiggles years agoThese words by Amelia Olsen speak from the female perspective, but knowing when to say yes and to say no is something everyone needs.  Don't forget that.

“Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shhh’ed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy washy. Blah Blah Blah. Don’t let someone steal your tenderness. Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all – look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love.“ Amelia Olson via HelloGiggles

Happy Monday, and have a beautiful week.
