Hey Style + Spirit Sistas!
Often, I am asked to refer books that I love or that have impacted me. I cannot rave enough about the Brilliant Brene Brown and encourage you all to pick up her book, The Gifts of Imperfection. She is amazing! I am about halfway through and couldn’t wait to finish it before I shared it with all of you! Books seem to choose me when I am meant to read them in order to fully receive the message. Who relates? This book has been sitting behind my desk among a stack of about six books in my “to read” pile. My mom gave it to me two Christmas’s ago and I remember flipping through it and loving the title, but for some reason I didn’t feel compelled to read it then. As a recovered perfectionist, every word of this easy-to-read book has resonated with me and if you need to LET GO of the woman you think you’re suppose to be…please read it and begin embracing who you really are!
A few weeks ago, in my Spiritual Mastermind Women’s Group, a few gals were raving about this Brene Brown who had recently been on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday. I was intrigued and spent the next week researching her and watched not only her SSS episodes, but all her TED TALKS videos as well. She speaks with simple clarity on topics like shame, vulnerability, connection, courage, worthiness and living a wholehearted life. All the things that many women find difficult to face, voice and express. HAVE I MENTIONED HOW AMAZING SHE IS?? Plus, she gets major brownie points for being a sassy fellow Houstonian! The full episodes are still posted on the OWN website so I encourage you to check them out. They won’t be up for much longer. Go to, http://www.oprah.com/own/episodes.html
