Open Hear Post #1Posted: February 3, 2011
Inspirations that come from anywhere that cause us to listen with our hearts,
unlocking them in the process.
Here is a link to a video by Brene Brown, about Wholeheartedness – one that caused me to sign up for the Mondo Beyondo January Dream Lab because she is the guest facilitator. From her blog:
“She has spent the past ten years studying vulnerability, courage, authenticity, and shame. Brené spent the first five years of her decade-long study focusing on shame and empathy, and is now using that work to explore a concept that she calls Wholeheartedness.”
It really spoke to me since I’m so cerebral person, often finding it challenging to live from my heart and not my head.
She defines Wholeheartedness as:
“Wholehearted living is about engaging in our lives from a place of worthiness.
It means cultivating the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up
in the morning and think, No matter what gets done and how much is left undone; I am enough.
It’s going to bed at night thinking, Yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable and sometimes afraid,
but that doesn’t change the truth that I am also brave and worthy of love and belonging.”
