I am a recovering engineer who is walking the path described in this book. I am so glad to hear that I am not the only one :)
Renée took the academic world and helped it to mean the real world. Ruth story she was able to capture the importance of forgiving ourselves and understanding how the imperfections become the perfections of life.
The narrator's voice depicted each character's voice as a distinct and separate entity. I like the diction of her words and enuciation. She made Brene Brown's voice believable as if it were her telling her story as the narrator.
Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, Don Ruiz, Paul Cohelo, & Gary Zuka. But I won't say compare in meaning they are all stating the same but Brene brings a specific entity as Imperfection to the table and spreads out its many facets in the light and not darkness. She takes what is seen, from a beauty standard, as something unacceptable, and shows the multifacetness of it. She ensures and assures that the original creation of God is fearfully and wonderfully made.
I can still do my work. I may miss some things but for some reason my soul's ear will pick up what I need to hear and Lauren will say it in just a way that makes sure I get it.
It made me smile and reaffirm that I'm not crazy for the way I think AND I'M OKAY!!! Yes, I need to play more, dance more, explore my interest more, like my quirky sense of humor, and CONNECT and ACCEPT myself before I try and connect with others. My sense of belonging is belonging to me first. I've pushed me away far to long. TY Brene and Lauren.
I LOVE BRENE BROWN!!! YOU ARE MY SHERO!!!
This book has started me down a journey that is beautiful and challenging and transformational.
This was the first book of Brene's I listened to and the narrator was great.
Since then, I've had the opportunity to listen to Brene' present her own work (The Power of Vulnerability).
I can understand other listeners who say nothing compares to Brene's authentic style.
Let me assure you, it's an easy listen that provides a helpful overview to Brene's body of work.
