Brene Brown’s Call to Courage 2018

I was very moved by some words I found on Brene Brown’s blog just over a week ago. I’m grateful to have the words so beautifully and succinctly put so I can share them with my children. This is Brene Brown’s call to courage 2018:

Stop walking through the world looking for
confirmation that you don’t belong.
You will always find it because you’ve
made that your mission.

Stop scouring people’s faces for evidence
that you are not enough.
You will always find it because you’ve
made that your goal.

True belonging and self-worth are not goods; we
don’t negotiate their value with the world.
The truth about who we
are lives in our hearts.

Our call to courage is to protect our
wild heart against constant evaluation,
especially our own.

Brene presents these words, on her blog, in a visual way for sharing on pinterest and facebook so please click through to her original post if you wish to pin or share.
Brene’s work has inspired me for years and really helped me to positively change the way I think and parent. I highly recommend her material, some of which I have listed below.

Thank you Brene for being such an incredible source of inspiration.


Brene’s books that I have read and recommend:
The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are
Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead.
Rising Strong: The Reckoning, The Rumble, The Revolution.
Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone.

Brene has a selection of material on Audible. I recommend reading her books rather than listening to them (except where she has narrated them herself), but there are several speeches that are brilliant and well worth investing in:
The Power of Vulnerability: Teachings of Authenticity, Connection, and Courage
The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting: Raising Children with Courage, Compassion, and Connection
Rising Strong as a Spiritual Practice
Men, Women and Worthiness: The Experience of Shame and the Power of Being Enough

Update on my weight loss program: I am posting my progress publicly to keep myself accountable! Good news is that I’m well ahead of target at 53.2kg. I’ve lost 2.3 kg since January 12th, so going well! If you are interested in how I am doing it – using Tony Robbins’ 5 steps to change – click through to the original post. I’m amazed at how easy it’s been so far using this technique.

I haven’t done any new work lately, so I am sharing some of my older pieces. Hopefully I’ll get back in the groove soon! Licensing options are available for this design; please feel free to contact me with any queries.
