How many times do you find yourself feeling exactly like this? I do, a lot. I am vocal, outspoken, opinionated- and I put myself out there. Not always to the best reception, but I stay true to me and what I believe in. I could hide in the stands and watch, but that wouldn't be staying true to who I am.
If you haven't heard of Brene Brown's book Daring Greatly- then run to a library, book store, down load it onto your Kindle- but read it.
This is one of those books that I find myself reading with a highlighting pen in hand, taking notes, nodding in agreement and sometimes throwing my head back and yelling, "Yes! Exactly!".
I love those kinds of books. Ones that resonate with my soul, align with my beliefs, and uncover things about myself that I couldn't put into words.
