pdf ô The Gifts of Imperfection ½ Brené Brown

The Gifts of Imperfection Ô The world from a place of worthinessIn her ten guideposts Brown engages our minds hearts and spirits as she explores how we can cultivate 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 and to go to bed at night thinking Yes I am sometimes afraid but I am also brave And yes I am imperfect and vulnerable but that doesn't change the truth that I am worthy of love and belonging So I'm just going to be honest and vulnerable with you all I have issues with not being good enough being vulnerable and not being worthy because I'm not what society says I should be However with this book which reads like an epiphany than a self help book I'm coming to realize that no one is perfect and you know what? That's ok The writing style is very conversational It's like you're sitting in a coffeeshop talking over steaming cups of coffee The author does not talk down to the reader at all and I find it refreshing that she shares so much of herself in this book and how she made this journey to being vulnerable and not being perfect I would definitely recommend pdf ô The Gifts of Imperfection ½ Brené Brown

I feel like saying GET A LIFEI also Really had trouble with the writing This author reminds us on almost every single page about her vast research or of how professional she is I got about half way through and still did not find a single citation or any sort of documentation of Any research When someone says I researched that and then does not show evidence of Any research it's about as valid as saying I found that online and so it must be true The author was way too busy telling us of all her accomplishments without ever telling us what Exactly She Did Couldn't read another page Had to abort Sorry Anyone out there want my copy?
