This week my friend, Brene Brown, released her lecture on "The Hustle for Worthiness".....It is beautiful, powerful, and so very needed... I know each one of us can relate to the exhaustion of trying to be good enough, doing whatever we can to live up to the expectations of what it means to "worthy." (What a battle it can be...)
A note below from Brene:
"On February 4th, I gave a lecture on my new research on love, belonging, and the power of being enough. The lecture was filmed and the DVD release date is today!
We're celebrating the release of "The Hustle for Worthiness" DVD with an entire Week of Worthiness. It's all part of the Wholehearted Revolution!
Wholehearted living is about engaging in our lives from a place of worthiness. It means cultivating 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.
Itís going to bed at night thinking, Yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable and sometimes afraid, but that doesnít change the truth that I am worthy of love and belonging.
So many of us have knowingly created / unknowingly allowed / or been handed down a long list of worthiness "prerequisites."
I'll be worthy when I lose 20 pounds.
I'll be worthy if I get pregnant.
I'll be worthy if everyone thinks I'm a good mom.
I'll be worthy if I can make a living selling my art.
I'll be worthy if I can hold my marriage together.
I'll be worthy when I make partner.
I'll be worthy when I can do it all and look like I'm not even trying.
and so on . . .
Here's what is truly at the heart of Wholeheartedness:
Worthy NOW! Not when. Not if. We are worthy of love and belonging NOW. Right this minute. As is...."
The lecture is available now on DVD, and if you would like a chance to receive a free copy of it, please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
with the words "I have always been worthy" in the subject line.
I will be announcing the winner next week!
This is my friend Catrina.
And this is her story.
