I spent an hour, listening to Brene Brown talk. And I took notes.

  • Courage – The Ability to TELL your story and LIKE who you are in the process of doing that.
  • We are WORTHY of love and belonging
  • To have a RESILIENT spirit
  • Is to to be TENACIOUS
  • While being able to live in your story, we get to rewrite the endings of our stories, if we are willing to walk into them and OWN them
  • I never realized that I am living a SHAME based life
  • Always thinking I am Less Than or Not Enough or Unacceptable
  • JOY is Vulnerable Discomfort
  • You have to be able to FEEL Discomfort in order to feel JOY
  • JOY is as prickly as Grief and Shame
  • To be Vulnerable is to be Beautiful
  • Those Vulnerable parts of us make us beautiful
  • THE THINGS THAT GET IN THE WAY ARE THE THINGS THAT CAN SET US FREE
  • People Never want to talk about those things that are in the way
  • It is all about talking about those things that are in the way
  • People always want EASY, BREEZY and LIGHT
  • In ADDICTION research – An intensely JOYFUL experience is as likely to cause a RELAPSE as an intensely NEGATIVE experience
  • Joy can be uncomfortable because it is Vulnerable
  • WE CAN DO HARD THINGS
  • Too many of us live in a world where we always need Positive and we never talk about the negative, or the failure, or that something is difficult
  • I’m Imperfect, I’m Vulnerable BUT I AM ENOUGH
  • I am Worthy – and Live a WHOLE HEARTED LIFE
  • Hope is NOT an emotion
  • HOPE is a Cognitive Thinking Approach
  • It’s not how we FEEL, it’s how we THINK
  • HOPE is 100% Teachable – Goals, Pathways and Agency
  • Set Goals, Cultivate pathways to achievement, Achieve your goals
  • Agency is simple … I believe I can do it
  • HOPE is a function of Struggle
  • People with high levels of Hopefulness have these prerequisites: Perseverance and Tenacity
  • THE PEOPLE WITH THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF HOPE HAVE THE MOST EXPERIENCE OF FAILURE
  • Dreams DON’T work unless we DO

**** KETO DIET UPDATE ****

I went to my Weigh in yesterday afternoon. I began at a weight of 180 pounds last Fall. Yesterday I weighed in at 145 pounds. That is a weight drop of 35 pounds, and I still have a month till I am seen at the clinic. Hoping to drop even further, before then.

I’ve never felt so good and so alive as I do right now. Even amid the turmoil I am CRUSHING it with physical beauty that I thought I would never find again.

But I have …

I Love My Life Right Now !!!
