Last week, I gave you a few listening recommendations and told you about an amazing talk by Brene Brown called “The Power of Vulnerability” that was so full of wonderful insights and motivational quotes I have not been able to get it out of my head!
One thing she touches on in the talk has to do with living authentically–she discusses how we may act around people, sometimes we shrink down and make ourselves small, other times we “puff up” and let our egos take over. Her motto for just being yourself is “Stand Your Sacred Ground” and I found this so simple, yet enlightening. Don’t worry how others perceive you–be authentic in your likes, dislikes, joys and fears. When you put your whole, authentic self out there, you will be proud and find that is where the magic happens!
Brene Brown’s words inspired this design that will be displayed on my desktop background this week–how about you too?! Click here to download it for free! I hope it serves as a beautiful reminder to be authentic and vulnerable with those closest to you and any new friends you may encounter throughout the week! ???
