Brene Brown and words to live by

Don't know whether any of you are Brene Brown fans, but this is a manifesto she wrote which I love:

" There is no greater threat to the critics and cynics and fearmongers
than those of us who are willing to fall because we have learned how to rise.
With skinned knees and bruised hearts;
we choose owning our stories of struggle, over hiding, over hustling, over pretending.
When we deny our stories, they define us. When we run from struggle, we are never free. So we turn toward truth and look it in the eye.
We will not be characters in our stories. Not villains, not victims, not even heroes.
We are the authors of our lives. We write our own daring endings.
We craft love from heartbreak, compassion from shame, grace from disappointment, courage from failure.
Showing up is our power.
Story is our way home. Truth is our song. We are the brave and brokenhearted.
We are rising strong." AMEN!

3. I wouldn't call myself a fan but I just recently listened to a podcast that Oprah did with her.

I had never heard of her before, but I do like a lot of the podcasts on Oprah's Soul Search, so I thought I'd give this one a try. It was pretty good.
