I first ran across this concept of ‘daring greatly’ while browsing online – Ms. Brown has a wonderful video up on her website link - http://www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_on_vulnerability.html. I am not exaggerating when I say that the concepts in this book and video changed my life in ways that I will be exploring deeper.
These concepts line up remarkably well with the content of another book I am reading - If the Buddha Dated: Handbook for Finding Love on a Spiritual Path, by Charlotte Kasl, PhD. It is all about integrity, being honest, honoring another person without needing to change or own them. I love the synchronicity that continues to happen in my life lately. As I am considering heading back out into the cruel world of dating, these things will be good to keep in mind, especially as I have not done this in ten years and am scared out of my mind at the very thought. But I am NOT a "cold and timid" soul, and so fear will not stop me.
I invite you all to read Ms. Brown's amazing book. It just might be the best $20 I'have ever spent. It can be found online at http://www.amazon.com/Daring-Greatly-Courage-Vulnerable-Transforms/dp/1592407331/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1376612067&sr=8-1&keywords=daring+greatly+brene+brown
