So, i looked at all the photos i have for this. But, then i thought why not just write something. (cuz, i am a visual person that's why)
I guess i could do one w.out a photo.
Since i have been reading the book mentioned in the last post there have been a million thoughts going through my head. Some good, some not so good. I guess you have to feel it all to make headway-just a little bit hard to look at yourself this way.
I would say that in order to live authentically you have to become a warrior of sorts. There are going to be people blocking you and not accepting your changes. They may like that they can bully you, shame you, or reside with you in the misery. You will have to fight against yourself, which i know is not an easy battle.
If the plan is to move forward, fight the urge to stay the same and understand what you need and how to get it. It will take courage, and you will have to become a champion for your cause, these are the traits of a warrior.
Easy to talk about and hard to do. But, if we can releast that inner warrior the battle should be a little less scary.
ok- so i couldn't not add a picture.

i have been reading this blog and Brene Brown's book, I thought it was just me.
Man is it perfect. I thought i knew a lot about shame and the hold it has on us, but this book is so amazing. It really isn't just me.
I do feel bad about some of the things i do in order to hide the shame or to shame others. This book is really helping to understand and then to become "shame resilient". A long way to go, but admitting you have a problem is the first step!!!! right?
Anyway, i highly recommend this book and her web site- ordinary courage I do not have the link set up sorry. I will try to remember how to do that tomorrow.
Thank you Brene!
