Come to think of it, I think I need to start leaning towards seizing the moment instead of pausing to think every once in a while. I think that I was accustomed to thinking this way because of my fear of failing and making mistakes.

Leadership is relationship (and vulnerability is essential in building relationships)

I had always viewed my relationships with the younger girls in young life as being primarily one-way, me pouring into them and being their friend, but not vis-versa. I made a pretty clear distinction between my relationships with them, and friendships. In their eyes, I am their friend, but they are not mine. They looked up to me, a lot. And I wanted our times together to be about them, not me. But in this moment, where Maya so passionately wanted me to open up, I realized the power of vulnerability.

In case you’ve never heard my definition of leadership, it is pretty broad. I don’t think it’s about titles or hierarchy, I think it’s about anyone who has engaged in mentorship, anyone who is someone’s role model, and anyone whose duty of care reaches beyond themselves.
