Heart Work and Head Work

From the first few pages of “The Gifts of Imperfection” by Brene Brown:

How much we know and understand ourselves is critically important, but there is something that is even more essential to living a Wholehearted life: loving ourselves.

Knowledge is important, but only if we’re being kind and gentle with ourselves as we work to discover who we are. Wholeheartedness is an much about embracing our tenderness and vulnerability as it is about developing knowledge and claiming power.

We cannot give our children what we don’t have. Where we are on our journey of living and loving with our whole hearts is a much stronger indicator of parenting success than anything we can learn from how-to-books. The journey is equal parts heart work and head work.

Give first to yourself what you wish to give to others. Embrace your tenderness and vulnerability so as to attract others and extend a helping hand; showing them that it is ok to move forward. Desire and seek knowledge so that the best path finds you. Claim your power so you may conquer your path and dream bigger dreams.
