my very favorite author, Bréne Brown, is hosting a week of worthiness over on her blog, Ordinary Courage. It is the collaborative celebration of who you are, right now, as you are. what an outrageous thing to celebrate! you, not improved. just you, you, you. oh yes, and me, too! just as we are.
if i had more time, i'd probably create a collage to honor the occasion. but instead, i will leave you with a prompt. what makes you ordinary? what are your ordinary habits? when was the last time you stopped and celebrated those qualities? we get stuck in an endless pursuit of our better selves, and we lose sight of what is working. what is perfect about the way we are, just as we are. i encourage you to take account of those qualities. and celebrate them.
jump on over to help blog for more ordinary goodness! and while you're at it, order her newly released DVD, "the hustle for worthiness" or her book "I Thought it was just me." when i read Dr. Brown's work for the first time, I couldn't believe my eyes. she is courageous and inspiring and down to earth in the most meaningful ways. i hope you'll find your way to worthiness this week.
next time you find yourself in front of a mirror or window, take a slow moment and whisper: i am worthy. (or shout, your choice)
