The Power of Vulnerability

Brene Brown is a researcher and storyteller.  I know, it doesn’t sound like the two could co-exist, but in a remarkable presentation at TEDx in Houston, Texas, the two come together.  Brown tells us that courage originally means “to tell your story with your whole heart”  We must have compassion and connection and be willing to let go who we think we should be and enter into a new place.

All of this means, we must believe that that which makes us vulnerable is what makes us beautiful.

I can tell you that I have since read some more of Brown’s work and have been amazed with her work especially on shame and worthiness.  This particular interview will give you insight into this in a comical and poignant manner.
