Power of Courage and Connections –Secret to Love,Worth and Meaning in Life

“In order for connections to happen we must be vulnerable and show our true selfs to others. ” Dr. Beren Brown

I recently came across an outstanding talk by Dr. Berne Brown at TED.  She talks about the power of being connected, vulnerable, courageous and whole heartiness. What make people vulnerable is what makes people beautiful and happy. To find meaning we need the  ability to empathize, belong, love.  This is humorous talk by a truly authentic person.  She shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. Her insight about  shame and vulnerability answer many questions on the meaning in life and joy of life. I think here concept of how we try to avoid pain through denial and by numbing  our emotions can be a real break through. My take away is that we are all worthy of love and worth. Tweet or respond to this video by telling me your definition of vulnerability and how you handle it. Enjoy. https://ted.com/talks/view/id/1042

    I wanted to share with you the top postf thewick in case you don’t want to sort through all of the posts on the wick. This post by Berne Brown was by and far the most viewed post. Her ability to be comfortable in her own skin and self-disclosing could be a model for all of us in 2013. Enjoy the New Year and don’t party to hard. The Wick
