Let go of who you think you're supposed to be and embrace who you are - Brené Brown
Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?
In The Gifts of Imperfection, Brené Brown, PhD, a leading expert on shame, authenticity and belonging, shares what she's learned from a decade of research on the power of Wholehearted Living--a way of engaging with the world from a place of worthiness.
In her ten guideposts, Brown engages our minds, hearts, and spirits as she explores how we can cultivate 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, and to go to bed at night thinking, Yes, I am sometimes afraid, but I am also brave. And, yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable, but that doesn't change the truth that I am worthy of love and belonging.
Our day together will explore the guideposts - cultivating them will look different to each of us so we'll aim to get clear on where you are already thriving and where you could turn up your 'wholeheartedness'. Come ready to play, have fun, and find your courage to live the kind of life you want.
Cultivating authenticity - letting go of what people think
Cultivating self-compassion - letting go of perfectionism
Cultivating intuition and trusting faith - letting go of the need for certainty
Cultivating creativity - letting go of comparison
Cultivating play and rest - letting go of exhaustion as a status symbol and productivity as self-worth
Cultivating calm and stillness - letting go of anxiety as a lifestyle
Cultivating meaningful work - letting go of self-doubt and 'supposed to'
