Inspiration at its Best in Braving the Wilderness by Brené Brown

Braving the Wilderness

My Review:

If you feel like you could use a boost of self confidence or reassurance that you are who you are supposed to be, or you want to think about acceptance, your own as well as getting along with others in this world, Braving the Wilderness is for you, and frankly everyone you may know.

In discussing how to build bridges, Brown says, “…the more we’re willing to seek out moments of collective joy and show up for experiences of collective pain- for real, in person, not online – the more difficult it becomes to deny our human connection, even with people we may disagree with.”

Brené Brown delivers powerful messages about how to “reclaim connection and truly belong” in this short, easy to ready book.  She provides some good advice and examples to assist us in navigating today’s world, standing up for what we believe individually, connecting face to face and treating others with respect. I read and enjoyed the book but heard the audiobook is great too.
