The Power of Vulnerability and Listening to Shame

The Husband watches a lot of TED Talks.  I'm sure some of you do as well.

I quite enjoy them but I forget about them until Hubs sends me a video to watch.

Last week, he said to me "There is a TED Talks" you NEED to watch.

"O.k." I said, "I'll watch it." 

He pressed further "Ummmm, I really think you should watch it. I'll watch it with you". 

He isn't one to really insist on things like this so I said again "Honey, I promise to watch it". 

So I watched it. 

And it really resonated with me, especially since I am on a journey to change how I see the world, interact with people and parent the Wee Man. 

I think this is just to good of a talk not to share.

Maybe you've seen it and its really worth a second, third, fourth viewing.

If you haven't, please start with the first TED Talks Brene Brown did.

 She left me wanting more (in a good way) so I did a little Googling of the Internets and found she had done a second TED Talks and this one left me feeling more complete and a bit teary eyed.

Let me know what you think.
