The Importance of Being Who We Are…

A friend recently sent me a link to a Ted Talk that I hadn’t seen. I’ve talked about Ted Talks in the past but if you are a new reader what I’ll say is that Ted Talks are amazing. You definitely need to check them out at TED.com.

This new talk, All I Ever Needed to Know I Learned in the Mental Hospital by Glennon Doyle is fantastic. I have to admit I love anyone that references Brene Brown as you may know from my past posts. What I really enjoyed is Doyle’s take on authenticity and our efforts to avoid it. I could talk about her message but I’d rather you just watch it yourself.   Enjoy!
