I hung out with Brene Brown on the treadmill this morning. She wasn’t actually next to me, but she was in my ears as I listened to her TED Talk on the power of vulnerability and the importance of connection. Connection with others – or companionship – and connection with the world around us – that
LOVE YOUR STORY.
One of the most beautiful things about you is your story, but not enough of us share them. Your story is what makes everything about you so very unique and so necessary in this world. Stories change lives. Stories inspire us to greatness. Your story is not yours to keep, but yours to share,
