The Top Reason Why I Love Brene Brown

I’ve been listening to Brene Brown on audible I’m finding new reasons to love all the time but here is some content from her new book Dare to Lead that just does it for me today.

We will do almost anything to avoid the feeling of being vulnerable if we let our ego be in control of our lives.  Because all it really cares about are gold stars, admiration from others, self-protection and outside validation.  But if we let our heart take the lead we start to live a different kind of life.  One where our soul emerges.  Jim Hollis, Jungian Analyst, has this quote that Brene cites in Dare to Lead and it goes like this:

“Ego is that thin wafer of consciousness floating on an iridescent ocean we call the soul.  We are not here to fit in, be well balanced…we are here to be different, eccentric, perhaps strange.  Perhaps merely to add our small piece, add our clunky, chunky selves to the great mosaic of being.  As the gods intended, to be more and more ourselves.”

This is so beautiful, isn’t it?  Let me know your thoughts on being vulnerable, Brene Brown and if you have read Dare to Lead.

I own Pink Moon Essentials, a purpose-driven business with services that include intuitive aromatherapy energy sessions. I also focus on collaborations with creative kind-hearted natural healthcare practitioners where I help them integrate essential oils into their business model. People most thank me for my customer service because I value empathy, kindness, and connection. I am a voracious reader of self-development books and spirituality and am a proud feminist. I like traveling but I also equally like to stay home and hang out with my son and husband. If I could, I would probably do yoga everyday. I also love to go on hikes at Grange Audubon Metro Park near my home. I am pretty sure that horses and hawks are my spirit animals.
