Here are some of the valuable life-changing quotes from her  Netflix special 

Vulnerability is hard, and it’s scary, and it feels dangerous. But it’s not as hard, scary or dangerous as getting to the end of our lives and having to ask ourselves,

“What if I would have shown up?

You share with people who’ve earned the right to hear your story. Your story is a privilege to hear.

When you don’t acknowledge your vulnerability, you work your shit out on other people.

Stop working your shit out on other people.

Sometimes winning is not coming in first, Sometimes winning is doing the really brave thing.

Be brave, but never put yourself out there.

Brave leaders are never silent around hard things.

No vulnerability, no creativity.

No tolerance for failure, no innovation.

If you are not willing to fall, you cannot innovate.

Sometimes just do the joyful things for the hell of it.

I get so busy sometimes chasing the extraordinary moments, that I don’t pay attention to the ordinary moments. The moments that if taken away, I would miss than anything.

To love is to be vulnerable, To give someone your heart and say “I know this could hurt so bad, but I am willing to do it.”

You are the most important thing in my life. And to able to see you and know you are the greatest privilege of my life.

And to be seen by you is the most important thing in my life.

We are all we have.

We usually reserve using people’s vulnerability against them for the people we love the most.

You cannot take criticism and feedback from people who are not being brave with their lives.
