One of the many things I’ve learned from Brené Brown, author of the bestseller, Dare Greatly, is the meaning of the word courage. It’s from the Latin, “cour”, meaning “heart”, and the original definition is “to tell the story of who you are with your whole heart.” What Brown has to say about courage and vulnerability, and the role vulnerability plays in our ability to live realized lives, will break open your heart, and break down the walls of shame and unworthiness that have kept you from the life you deserve to live.
