Brene Brown’s writing is continuing to make more and more sense for me. I’ve encouraged parishioners and friends to read this her most recent book. Brown was  in London town this week, but alas I didn’t make it onto the reserve-guest list!

Here are some of the best quotes from her time……

If you are not in the arena getting your ass kicked I am not interested in your criticism!

 Vulnerability is not weakness. It is the most accurate measure of courage.

 You can be courageous or you can be comfortable but you can’t be both.

The relationship between vulnerability and joy. No vulnerability = no joy. 

Our capacity for wholeheartedness can never be greater than our willingness to be brokenhearted.

When in shame don’t talk text type or email. Spend time recovering from the shock!
 We need fierce, ballsy love for each other and the planet.
