Wholehearted living is about engaging in our lives from a place of worthiness. It means cultivating the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think … No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough. It’s going to bed at night thinking … Yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable and sometime afraid, but that doesn’t change the truth that I am also brace and worthy of love and belonging.

— Brené Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection

Feeling and believing we are worthy … I struggle with that and I expect you struggle with that too. The greatest challenge for many of us is believing that we are worthy here and now, just the way we are, without any conditions. We don’t need to get something or achieve something or change something or become something to be worthy. We don’t need to fit in and become who you need to be to be accepted; but simply belong – being who we are.

Worthiness leads to choosing authenticity. Brené Brown defines authenticity as the daily practice of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are.

To be nobody-but-yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody but yourself – means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight – and never stop fighting.  — E.E. Cummings

So keep fighting. Be who God created you to BE. Embrace who you are. Let go of who you think you’re supposed to be.

Be …

Be Who …

Be Who You …

Be Who You Are.

Brene Brown
