Vulnerability Is …..


Vulnerability quote.web

Vulnerability is

1. The bearing of ones’ soul.
2. The exposing of our frailties
3. The peeling of our layers
4. The kiss and tell of our heart
5. The revealing of our inner being

Vulnerability feels like

1. Pain from an open wound
2. A throbbing in our head
3. A punch in our stomach
4. A thump in our brain
5. A thief stealing our soul

Love Feels Like
1. A quenched thirst
2. A harmonious gratifying touch
3. A warm breeze on our skin
4. Lips soft and sweet
5. An enchanted heart dancing

Author: Inside the Mind of Isadora

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  1. Dear Izzy,
    This is really a thoughtful and eloquent post.


    • When I had seen a you tube video of Brene Brown, I knew that I had to meet her challenge. Vulnerability is …. two words that conjure up a plethora of thoughts. In my journey inside the mind of isadora, I found these answers. I’ve re-read them, from time to time, to remind myself of how powerful LOVE is and how Vulnerability is powerless in it’s presence.
      Thank you, Naomi, for your kind comment and for visiting. 😍

  3. Isadora, this is wonderful. Would you care to share it on The Bardo Group blog?

    We would need a photo of you (if you are comfortable with that) and a brief biography as well as the names of your online sights and links. You can see how we set up post if you visit the site. Email us at if you are interested. I hope you are.

    Many blessings and thanks for so much wonderful sharing here.


  4. Love your dream like quality artwork and the poem and questions on vulnerability. I feel vulnerable every time I think about sharing my art or writing.


    • I can totally relate with your feelings of vulnerability in the sharing of art and writing.
      I tend to read and re-read my writing or add this to artwork. When I am thoroughly satisfied
      I post them and have a pang of regret quickly afterwards. It linger until I get a “Like”.
      Artists are never secure in their art.
      Thanks for stopping by and leaving your nice comment. ❤


  5. Vulnerability is a bridge to get wiser, your life line is one example, Isadora, maybe my fate too (starting my life in an orphanage). Your husband (after that sad attack of violence vs. him) can be glad to have you!


    • Without our Vulnerabilities, we couldn’t feel the opposite of it … LOVE. I’ve been blessed to have someone in my life who can understand my rejection as a child and tries to help heal it.
      Thank you for your support, Frizz, and for always leaving your very insightful comments. 😴

  10. Love has always been what made me fell most vulnerable…in both good and bad ways.


  11. V: our dog curling up in a corner, shaking because of the thunderstorm outside and L: me, off to comfort her with a cuddle. This is exactly what I’m about to do as she is terrified of thunder and it’s poring rain tonight! It seemed appropriate… 🙂
    What a choice for the challenge, Isadora! xx


  12. Oh Issy this art work is gorgeous!


I'd Love to hear what you think. Thanks ...
