First, thank you for the gift you gave me yesterday. Those things Brene has researched for 12 years, I know them. I am beginning to understand and pull them to the surface. To stomp on them with my foot. The shame. The feelings of not being enough. Loved the differentiation she made between shame and guilt.

Her expression was a confirmation of my own awakening. Again, thanks!

On my bucket list….I want to give a TED talk.

The re-write was tough. Multiple first paragraphs typed and deleted. I do like the result and it leaves me scratching my head.

What am I trying to do here? Where do I want this to go? What are my options? What is the logical next step?

I do not expect you to offer the answers?:)
