I cannot believe that Brene Brown’s eCourse has finally come to an end.
Leading up to the passing of my dad, I was caught up in graduating and facing the finality that I wouldn’t have him here in a physical sense that I slacked on the progress of this project. Last night, I spent some time catching up on the last two weeks of the eCourse and letting myself journal to my heart’s content. It was refreshing and I was sure that I would end up in tears at the end of it all.
I assumed I would be in tears – I was wrong. I was more so elated about the fact that I have slowly discovered even more about myself over these last 6 weeks in more ways than I ever thought I would.
“To succeed in life, you need two things: ignorance and confidence.” -Mark Twain
Sometimes you just have to allow yourself to be whatever your heart wants you to be. Don’t worry about what other people think, how they look at your, or if you come off as a complete goober. Be the person that makes you happy and helps your grow into a person that others will appreciate, plus want to be around.
Brene allowed for me to remind myself that I am cool regardless of what others think of me. As long as I am comfortable with myself, then I can seize any goals I set my mind to. What I understand now, more than ever, is that this is my wholehearted life! A part of that is learning to navigate the grief and believe that I have the support, love, and ability to strive to live life to the fullest. My one continued take away from this entire eCourse is DON’T SETTLE.
I can’t explain it any better than Steve Jobs –
If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.
Love, I have. Goals, they are as well. Peace will eventually calm the hurt and pain that lingers. But I refuse to settle!
I am looking forward to growing Ware is the Vodka?!? To sewing projects during my free time! To meeting new people and living each day better than the last!
Here’s to a beautiful life –
