The Gifts Of Imperfection: By Brene’ Brown, Ph.D., L.M.S.W.

Wednesday I posted a quote from Margaret Young. I pulled it from the book, The Gifts Of Imperfection by Brene’ Brown. In this book she gives us a guide to wholehearted living. Here is the intro to the book.

   “Wholehearted living is about engaging in our lives from a place of worthiness. 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.”

Starting with guidepost (GP) number one!
