How did I know Brene’ Brown’s book The Gifts of Imperfection would be a life-changing read? Because it starts like this:
“Wholehearted living is about engaging in our lives from a place of worthiness. It means cultivating the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough. It’s going to bed at night thinking, Yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable and sometimes afraid, but that doesn’t change the truth that I am also brave and worthy of love and belonging.”
Seriously. That’s Page 1; Paragraph 1. And it only gets better from there.
