042 – Wild Heart

“Strong back, soft front, wild heart”

– Brene Brown

I’ve been listening to Dr. Brown’s new book Braving the Wildernes and today, I was amused to find her as the guest on Krista Tippet’s On Being podcast.

Don’t you love serendipity?

In her book and in the podcast, she uses this phrase to illustrate how we can find true belonging by standing alone. A paradoxical and power idea.

I’ve been really inspired by her work.

I’m excited by this book and how it addresses our incredibly divisive political world.

I’m excited to cultivate my own wild heart in my life and relationships.

And … I’m excited to see my sweet partner who returns home from Japan tomorrow.

    1. Yeah she has a very interesting take on how that be more fully yourself, or belonging to yourself as she puts it, is the secret sauce to belonging anywhere. I makes sense to me. It’s like learning to not cling to things helps us enjoy our things more.
