“Some of us think holding on makes us strong, but sometimes it is letting go.” Herman Hesse
I often write about finding lightness in life.
It can come from an unhurried but effective day at work or from uncluttering your home.
Or from learning how to let go and move on in life.
Learning to let go of a relationship, of something else in your past, of something that is just an unimportant distraction or of trying to control what you cannot control can free up huge amounts of the energy and the time you have to use for something better and more fulfilling.
Brené Brown is a lecturer and professor at The University of Houston but she's more well known for her 5 New York Times best-seller books and her Ted Talk “The Power of Vulnerability” that has over 54 million views so far.
And this week I’d like to share my favorite quotes from her.
Insightful, thought-provoking and practically helpful thoughts on happiness, shame, vulnerability, courage and more.
