Sunday Sermon: Brené Brown - The Price of Invulnerability

 Speaker: Dr. Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work where she has spent the past 10 years studying courage, shame and authenticity. 

Each time I watch this talk by Brené Brown, I pick up on something else that she says. "Perfection has nothing to do with healthy striving or...striving for excellence. People who are absolutely accomplished, who strive for perfection are the biggest negotiators and compromises that I've ever interviewed. Perfectionism is a tool to protect ourselves." 

Now, if, like me, you have the need to consume every single thing from a new source of inspiration, then you'll enjoy this too: 


Isn't that great? I love this woman. This is just one of my favourite TED talks, what are yours?



  1. Wow! That was amazing. I had many 'aha' moments. Thankyou for sharing. I am most grateful!

  2. Thanks so much for stopping by today, Heather! Hope you have a lovely weekend, too!

  3. I was looking for the wallpaper in Maud's room on Upstairs Downstairs, and came to your site. I was clicking away and saw this link. My 50 year old cousin and her 5 year old daughter just lost their husband/father to cancer.

    She said she feels so vulnerable without him. I will send her this link - and I know it will help her.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts and ideas.
