Just What This Momma Ordered

Mar 22, 2013 by

A few months ago a friend of mine (you know who you are, girl), gave me a copy of Brené Brown’s book Daring Greatly.  She talked about it being a life altering book as a mom and as a human being.  Now this friend of mine is not one for hyperbole, so I set that book on my bedside table and promised myself that I’d read it soon.  But I didn’t.  Low and behold, not a few days later this article started doing the rounds on the internet.  It knocked the wind out of me.  This one little article was like a healing salve placed on what was (at that moment in time) a very fragile mamma’s soul.  And I thought… Annie, you should read her book, it’s right there on your bedside table, just waiting for you.  But I didn’t.  Then this article appeared a couple days ago, and I once again feel the earth shifting under me only to find myself on slightly firmer ground.  Obviously, the only thing to do now is become a Brené Brown stalker, because I just want to sit in a room and listen to this woman talk. (don’t worry Brené, I’m totally harmless)  Fortunately for me (and probably Brené) there’s this TED talk to keep me satisfied until I can finally crack open that book tonight.  Oh… and if you want a little more BB, check her out on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday (first part here), part two airs this weekend.
