I finished reading this book last night. Did this book speak to me in so many ways. I have been reading it for a while and have picked it up and put it down because sometimes I need time to digest. This book is full of big words. The words; love, shame, vulnerability, compassion, numbing, courage, boundaries and powerlessness are the big words for me, they stop me in my tracks. There are others too that she covers. She tells truths about wholehearted living and has spent time researching.
I have mentioned Brene Brown before and no doubt I will again because I am totally besotted with her work. Reading her findings was a life saver at times when I felt so wrong about everything I believed. When I’ve had to justify building trust, storytelling and conversations as having a legitimate role in curriculum for students who don’t want to go to school, I’ve kept Brene Brown and other wholehearted warriors in mind. Not that it worked, but it helped to make me feel less crazy.
So here is a TED Talk for you if you are not a reader. I thought I had already shared them on my blog, but I just did a search and if I have, I haven’t tagged them very well. I need to attend to this blog because there are some things that are not working for me. I want everyone in the world to get this stuff, especially me! I have Daring Greatly started and will respond to that soon.
