Last week I talked about people who make us feel good by just being around them and I said I would like to be more like that kind of person. I keep thinking that those people must be very comfortable with themselves or they couldn’t give off the vibe they do.
Thinking along the lines of how to be a more approachable, comfortable, loving person myself, reminded me of a talk I heard a few years ago by Brene Brown on wholehearted living.
You can listen to it here: http://www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_on_vulnerability
This is Brene Brown’s definition of Wholehearted living:
Oh, that sounds really nice!
I want to live wholeheartedly.
I long for this kind of life.
I desire to be this kind of parent.
Wow, I want to grow up in that home, don’t you?
But how do you do that? Somehow I don’t think the answer is found on pinterest or in a list of 10 things you can do to increase the fulfillment in your life.
She says the answer starts with vulnerability.
So, In order to live life wholeheartedly, I not only have to accept my own imperfections but I also have to share them with others? Ouch.
That’s going to take come courage.
Do you dare?
I think I dare.
