Saturday night fun! #brenebrown had changed my world with her words. I am all about sitting here in the quiet with wise words and healing. 💜
"imagine if people gathered to talk about the real issues that fuel disconnection. What if we were willing to acknowledge our own hurt and pain, and in doing so, made sure not to diminish the hurt and pain of others?" #risingstrong #brenebrown #storytelling #filters #story #thinking #critics #empathy #fearmongers #connection #disconnection #hurt #pain #itsoktotalk #talking #therumble #reckoning #vulnerability #mindreading #whatelsecoulditbe #communication

Connected with other lovely CDWFs at the regional Midwest gathering today! It was so refreshing to hear some inspiring stories about the work people are doing in the world. #love #thedaringway #brenebrown
D A Y 1 0 : B O O K I W A N T T O R E A D. This is the only Brene Brown book I've haven't read and I have no idea why. I've heard great things about it. . . . . #12daysofbookstagram #reading #ilovebooks #brenebrown #daringgreatly #bookworm #readeveryday #ilovebooks
Weekend read complete. What an inspiring book. How spoilt I am to have been able to finish it in one weekend.😉 #strongbacksoftfrontwildheart #brenebrown
A collection of what I have been into this week... an amazing book, carrot apple ginger juice (this has been really nice and soothing after being sick), and choco chimps cereal with coconut milk - this is officially one of my pregnancy cravings.. I just can't stop once I open a box 😁 #brenebrown #thegiftsofimperfection #carrotappleginger #freshjuice #homemade #chocochimps #pregnancycravings
This is so true! #brenebrown #ownyourstory #quotes
Finishing off my week of reflection on resilience and courage. Earlier I wrote about the books Option B and Mindset. A wonderful complement to those is Brene Brown’s Rising Strong. She captures so very eloquently the links between risk-taking, failure and success and highlights the habits and characteristics of those who are able to transcend personal tragedy. One of those characteristics is the ability to lean into vulnerability and discomfort. As Brown writes, “If we are brave enough often enough, we will fall; this is the physics of vulnerability.” One of my favorite lines from the book “Of all the things trauma takes away from us, the worst is our willingness, or even our ability, to be vulnerable. There's a reclaiming that has to happen.” This is profound and so true. Embracing vulnerability in our relationships and more generally in our lives allows us to be more curious and explorative about love, life and learning. I think it’s a wonderful lesson. #quotes #courage #couragequotes #instaquote #instaquotes #inspirationalquotes #inspiration #positivethinking #positivequotes #quotestoliveby #quotestagram #quotestoinspire #quotestoremember #dailyreminder #dailyquotes #dailyquote #encouragement #encourage #encouragingquotes #encouraging #resilience #perseverance #brenebrown #risingstrong #vulnerability
We’re fighting to be heard. We’re fighting to love ourselves in all our states of being. We’re fighting to be seen and to teach others that being seen is NOT consent. We are women. . . . #itfeelslikeashoutingkindofday #bodypositive #brenebrown #brenebrownquotes #standyourground #everybodyisagoodbody #stitchersofinstagram #embroidery #embroideryart #artdeco @fuckyeah.embroidery #fuckyeahembroidery
I want you to know that you’re not the only one who second guesses herself, feels like she needs too much external validation, feels alone and craves connection. 💗 Remember not to take everything for its face value.

Lately I’ve been negotiating with myself. For every chore I do, I get to read a chapter. #brenebrown #bravingthewilderness #truebelonging #authentic #imperfect #selfacceptance
Brené Brown says “When we deny our stories, they define us. When we own our stories, we get to write a brave new ending.” Owning our stories is about being true to ourselves. Not hiding from our deepest selves, but instead embracing this most authentic place. I don’t think it means that everyone needs to go out and make confessions of their deepest secrets on the internet (though, it might feel good to at some point!). I think it’s more about accepting you as you instead of resisting and pushing against yourself. .

I stepped into the wilderness today and it was perfectly imperfect. There are things I want to change and improve upon but right now I’m enjoying the fact that I did it. . I spoke at @craftcontentnash today about how the myth of perfection hurts creatives. If you want to hear more, it’s in EP01 of Candidly Caffeinated. (Link in bio.) . Ready to step into the wilderness? Go read @brenebrown ’s Braving the Wilderness. It’s challenging, empowering, and beautiful. I highly encourage you to read it, especially if you’re a creative. . . . #bravingthewilderness #creativity #creativityfound #creativityeveryday #startupstories #startuplife #startupgrind #startupquotes #entrepreneurship #entrepreneurlife #ccn18 #nashville #nashvilletn #nashvilletennessee #nashvillecreatives #storyteller #creatingchange #conference #creativeconference #brenebrown #brenebrownquotes

#thoughtful #personalized #selfcare #package . . . . #thanks #grateful #touched #daringgreatly by #brenebrown I'd already watched her #tedtalk on the #giftofimperfection . So it was cool to receive this #book by #surprise ! I especially love the #colorful #balloons and #bicycle on the card and I need a new #sketchbook #iheartpostitnotes and #miniflags
I’ll never forget a very wise woman telling me that the problem with clinging to an identity as a victim — even though lord knows, I’d been victimized — is that victims have no power. It was only once I shifted the way I framed my life from a person who had been through some sh*t (but it wasn’t WHO I AM) to someone who is getting stronger every day— that I became empowered. ❤️
Today’s mantra/affirmation: I welcome opportunities to be courageously loving & vulnerable like I learned to make a best friend, ride a bike, read, or earn a degree. #work #resilience #grit #openness #communication #courage #relationships #love #maturity #thegreatestthingyoulleverlearnistoloveandbelovedinreturn #brenebrown #own #iyanlavanzant #vulnerabilityispower
Saturday is chore day! Dog training, grocery shopping, the laundry-mat, hand washing the dishes that were missed during the week...it can be overwhelming. I used to be self conscious of what I lacked (dishwasher, washing machine, a "nice" house with AC, etc. etc.) that I forgot about all that I DO have. I'm thankful to have a car, shelter, friends, school, work. I'm thankful I know where I'm at now, keeping in mind where I want to be in the future. #thankful #hardwork #brenebrown

“If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understands, shame can’t survive.” - Brene Brown #yes #brenebrown
As always, thank you Brene for giving us the space to embrace our glorious imperfect selves. #brenebrown
Our world is constantly screaming at us that we are not enough. We aren’t skinny enough, we aren’t smart enough, we aren’t successful enough. These are just a few of the many messages we see everywhere we look. But Jesus Christ has a different message for you... “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” The God of the universe created you and not just that, he predestined you to do GREAT things. You are enough. So you don’t need to spend everyday listening to the world and feeling inadequate. Dive into the word and see what God says about you. ❤️

"You are worthy of love and belonging." ~ Brené Brown
Whew. I churned this one out today! So I’ve not been keeping up with the blogging recently. I have been unwell. Work has been busy with the exams. But I know the real reason I’ve not been doing it is that I’ve been feeling the pangs of a vulnerability hangover. . Since sharing my blog posts I’ve felt quite exposed, like I’ve bared too much of myself and worried about what people have been thinking about it. Today I looked that straight in the eye and knee that THiS is what I needed to write about next. . So here it is. I hope it helps someone out there, or you can at least laugh at my own story 😂. . Anyone else out there been on the receiving end of a vulnerability hangover? How did you get through it? .

Uh...Shame manifested from or because of the value we place on our physical appearance. As though we have no other valuable resources to offer. Castle-Broken, available on Amazon.

" Joy comes to us in ordinary moments, we risk missing out when we get too busy chasing down the extraordinary." - Beene Brown
Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen. Because true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world, our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance. Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. ~ Brené Brown
18/100 // Several people wrote and suggested this or something similar, and I have to agree. Why is it so hard to ask for help?? We do it through our whole childhood. Then we rebel as teens and try to prove that we can handle everything on our own. Let’s all vow to ask for help more often, hm?
I love this! via @localrose being seen is everything, being heard, valued. If you can give that to someone you’ll see them unfold. We all want to belong but as Brene Brown and Maya Angelou before her have explained so well, we belong to ourselves first and if we can really be free to be ourselves and give ourselves that unconditional love then we belong anywhere. #brenebrown
Brene Brown in de "Happinez", prachtig verhaal & heerlijk magazine om te lezen😀🍀❤ #brenebrown #happinez #ilovewhatido #inspiratie #happyandhealtylifestyle #spiritueel #masterinhappiness #happyme
We cannot define ourselves by society’s standards on what it means to be successful. If we do so, we will just SET OURSELVES UP for failure! . . Success is a matter of opinion or perspective. Desire to compare yourself to the BEST possible version of yourselves based on who God created you to be! . . True joy comes from knowing who you are and being authentically you everyday. . . Seek God and let Him guide you on what success should look like in your life! . . Tag 5 friends that you believe need to hear this message! #jumpstartyourdreams
Vulnerabilidade não é algo confortável, mas também não é algo ruim. É apenas necessária. . "Ela é o centro da vergonha, do medo e da luta por merecimento, mas também é a origem da alegria, da criatividade, do pertencimento, do amor" (Brené Brown) . #vectorscapes #pb #blackandwhite #meuescape #brenebrown

“Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It's about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.” ⠀ ― Brené Brown⠀ ⠀ For small business owners there is often no separation between you and your business. In most cases, small businesses are forged out of personal desire, passion and dreams. We're all for it, and we get it. We're right there with you. ⠀ ⠀ Making the choice to show up and allow yourself to be seen in professional settings can feel counterintuitive, but we promise you it's not. When you allow yourself to be seen, you allow your passion, love and drive for your business to be seen. ⠀ ⠀ It's the heart behind why you do what you do, that people will connect with. We have to remind ourselves of this weekly, and there's nothing wrong with that.⠀ ⠀ Show up. Be seen. You got this.⠀ 🌵🌵🌵⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #marketresearch #digitalmarketing #data #entrepreneur #inlandempire #socal #targetmarket #dataanalytics #businessgrowth #advertisingagency #upland #claremont #ontario #bosslady #brenebrown #beseen #showup

Hovering my shins to the ground while keeping my hips lifted and visualizing my feet rocketing up to the front of the mat between my hands all the while fully aware that this is basically what’s really happening is ok with me 😂❤️. I’ll get it one day @slpy_yogi @willoughby_rutherford #yoga

A highlight of this week was the reunion of #thedaringway a 2-day intensive based on the work of @brenebrown and hosted by @lieselscott of @appletreegroupsa . I can’t believe it’s been a year! It was so lovely hearing everyone’s stories: the highs, the lows, the insights, the shifts...and above all, the courage that has been shown in stepping into the arena. Stepping in DESPITE the fear, the doubt, the uncertainty and the risk. And stepping in so whole-heartedly. . Thank you for the inspiration ❤️
Once I tapped into my true self the world opened up in such a gracious beautiful way, vulnerability has become one of my favorite feelings, be true to yourself and show the world who you are, because you are one of a kind! #lovenotestomysoul #love #soul #lovely #vulnerability #brenebrown #dare #beyou #ihavethisthingwithhearts #purple #abmlifeisbeautiful #daringgreatly
#onelittleword // Well, I’m switching my OLW this year even though it’s April, I hope that’s allowed. 😬 I’ve been struggling lately. I’ve just been sad, depressed and discouraged. Which honestly, isn’t like me. Then last night I stumbled on a quote from Brene Brown. “You can choose courage or you can choose comfort. You cannot have both.” And it hit me hard. I’m in a comfort zone. I’ve had to do a lot of hard things in the last few years but now I’ve gotten too comfortable with how I am, and it’s not how I want to be. I remember when I was going to therapy and my therapist said I was brave for doing everything I had done, and it really touched me. I forget how much courage it takes to do hard things, especially when we want them so bad and we don’t want to fail. It takes courage to lose weight. It takes courage to find your faith. It takes courage to start dating. It takes courage to pay off debt. So, starting today and every day after, I am choosing courage over comfort. // #courage
What else can I say. I'm reading Rising Strong again and it's so powerful. Love her! ❤️ #brenebrown #risingstrong #quotestoliveby #hero #justshowup
