I am never more courageous than when I am
embracing imperfection, embracing vulnerabilities,
and setting boundaries with the people in my life.
I have this one memorized, written on a post note (neon pink of course) and stuck to my big beautiful imac + I would seriously consider getting it turned into a tattoo in some beautiful script font maybe on the inside of my left arm. Embracing things you formerly considered flaws is not easy, setting boundaries with the people in your life - even harder.
But ultimately it feels right, it feels good. It feels strong ... it feels like me.
Courage is my friend and I am becoming braver all the time.
the quote is from Brené Brown's fabulous book The Gifts of Imperfection
