I thought I would share one of my favourite Ted Talks today. You will notice I will start posting a lot of these on a regular basis. I think Ted Talks are so powerful, educational and enlightening.
Brene Brown studies vulnerability for a living. In this ted talk, she explains how shame connects to vulnerability and courage. So a little back story… This last summer when I was trying to decide if I wanted to begin putting ‘With Love, Emma’ out there on a more professional level, I would immediately get this overwhelming feeling of anxiety and fear that I wouldn’t succeed. I thought that if I did put myself out there, I would fail and then I would feel shame. It was not until late August when I saw Brene’s talk on shame that I flipped my thinking. I started to see so many things in my life from a different perspective. I really hope that after you watch this, you too, will find strength and courage to achieve things you thought you could never do.
