“To be nobody-but-yourself in a world which is doing its best, night & day, to make you everybody but yourself — means to fight the hardest battle which any human can fight — and never stop fighting.” — E. E. Cummings
Yesterday I started (oh yeah, and finished) Brené Brown’s The Gift of Imperfections. After reading Rising Strong, I was like you know what… I’ve found an author that I really enjoy reading (rare!), she really gets me thinking on a deeper level about my everyday life, & she makes it so RELATABLE. She doesn’t come from a viewpoint of “Here is how to live a happier life… 1, 2, 3. Listen to me because I live every day as though it’s rainbows & unicorns!” Instead, she shares her own challenges, struggles, experiences & admits that she still struggles living a wholehearted life, every. single. day.
