Grace is the whisper when your standing in front of the dark that says “I can’t make this less scary for you but I can remind you that you walked through it before”
It’s Sunday morning and I’m drinking my coffee and typing to you from the comfort of my couch.
If you don’t know Brene’ you need to get to know her because her work is courageous and brave on so many levels.
She brings real to the table and uncovers all of its messiness. Who else do you know who’s studied and researched blame and shame and vulnerability?
I don’t even think people sometimes understand what they are doing as the try to avoid all of these feelings inside themselves.
I still have lots to learn about blame and shame and living a vulnerable life. I think we all do if we’re being honest.
Emotional intelligence wasn’t even a thing back in the day. No one ever talked about their feelings and many families are still this way today.
I grew up shamed, blamed, co-dependant, and insecure. My family didn’t have the tools or the knowledge to do things differently.
But today we live a world where the things that truly matter are being addressed. People are learning more about themselves then ever, and it’s changing the way we feel, learn and see.
It’s changing the conversations that we have when we are with our friends. It’s bringing us to a new level of enlightenment. I think it’s exactly what the world needs more of.
People who show up and have the courage to have uncomfortable conversations about their feelings instead of their fears are my hero’s.
We don’t need more people who think exactly the same and who never challenge us to see things differently.
I prefer to talk about me about you but not about others. I want to be the kind of woman who was known for standing up for herself and what she believes in. I won’t allow the fears of this world or the useless opinions of others deter me from my destiny.
I’m not the girl who wants to fit in, as a matter of fact that’s exactly why I’ve always been an entrepreneur. I don’t like to be told what to do, how to think, how to dress and how to act appropriately.
I’m not here to live my life according to the way you think I should live it. I don’t play by the rules of society and this in itself comes with amazing freedom.
Some of you might have to watch what you say and how you act because of your careers, but not this girl right here.
I wasn’t made to be like you and I embrace this gift wholeheartedly. I am a unique beautiful child of God. I am worthy of the unconditional love that
I give so freely and I will never put myself last again.
