I am worthy of love. I am worthy of belonging. I am vulnerable. I like me. I am a good person. I am here. I like you.
I had a few blog drafts ready to go, and the time just flew by... and now it's the last couple of days of 2010, and I've decided to go with a brand-spanking-new post written on the fly. Last night, I was inspired by this TED talk by Brene Brown I watched while making eggrolls from scratch with my mother and thought the themes presented in her talk were truly moving. "I must share this. I must take notes. Inspiring." - these were the thoughts going through my head as I watched this talk. I'd like to think that this is a great post to close the year out with.
In Brene's talk, "The Power of Vulnerability", she talks about the three C's: Courage, Compassion, and Connection. These are three themes that I've been seeing over and over again as I've watched lecture after lecture, read book after book about the psychology of happiness. We're too desensitized as a society, as a people - we need to embrace our "humanity" again.
Hugs my friends! Happy new year.
