Really good

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom.” —Viktor Frankl

If you wrote this quote as a formula, it might look like this: S( )R.

This week, I’m celebrating 26 years of sobriety. Before I got sober, there was no space at all between the S and the R. Something happened, someone did or said something, and I’d come out swinging or fearing or worrying or apologizing. I responded in a way that led to more stacked stimuli and responses. There was very little growth and very little freedom.

I’ve learned to pry open that space over the past 26 years. Breath, curiosity, better sleep, working out, intention, therapy, prayer—I’ve learned to practice what Buddhists call the sacred pause.

But the past two years have taken a toll, and now it’s time for a serious recommitment to creating and maintaining space. For me, this includes a three-month sabbatical, a break in podcasting and social media, and making sure our team takes time away. You can read more on the website.

In one of the best speeches I’ve ever heard, actress, screenwriter, director, and producer Michaela Coel said, “Do not be afraid to disappear, from it, from us, for a while and see what comes to you in the silence.” I’m a big fan of silence. I can’t wait!

We set audacious goals in our organization—like “Start global conversations about shame and vulnerability”—but this might be our boldest move yet.

We’ll be back this fall. Rested and ready for our next audacious goal.

Stay awkward, brave, and kind,
BB

P.S. The stimulus/response quote has a long and unknown history. We know it’s not Stephen Covey (per him). Many scholars think it’s Viktor Frankl. You can read more in the post on brenebrown.com.

To flourish we must cultivate self compassion

01/02/2022

This is awesome !

31 days of Self-Compassion from ✨ Love this as a way to start out the new year 🎆

Starting off 2022 with a little daily self-compassion 💗

Having goals, and dreaming big is amazing, and self-compassion is the support to get you through when that road gets bumpy.

Self-compassion says, “It’s okay, I’ll try again tomorrow” when it feels like your millionth failure.

Self-compassion says, “I’m not there yet, but that doesn’t mean I’ll never be” when it feels like you’re falling behind.

And self-compassion says, “I’m not perfect. I’m human. I will try my best in however that looks from day to day, and know that I am already enough” when the world feels heavy and nothing seems to be going right.

I hope this year, as the road of 2022 unravels before you, I hope it is filled with so many joys! But when doubt, worry, and judgement creep in, I hope you give yourself (and others) compassion and space to be human.

✨ Cheers to a kinder year ✨

We could say that as long as you perceive your life through the lens of the past and react to the conditions with the same neural architecture and from the same level of mind, you’re headed toward a very specific, predetermined genetic destiny. In addition, what you believe about yourself, your life, and the choices you make as a result of those beliefs also keeps sending the same messages to the same genes.

Only when the cell is ignited in a new way, by new information, can it create thousands of variations of the same gene to rewrite a new expression of proteins—which changes your body. You may not be able to control all the elements in your outer world, but you can manage many aspects of your inner world. Your beliefs, your perceptions, and how you interact with your external environment have an influence on your internal environment, which is still the external environment of the cell.

This means that you—not your preprogrammed biology—hold the keys to your genetic destiny. It’s just a matter of finding the right key that fits into the right lock to unleash your potential. So why not see your genes for what they really are? Providers of possibility, resources of unlimited potential, and a code system of personal commands. They’re tools for transformation, which literally means “changing form.”

To learn how to access the unlimited potential in your genes, please read Dr Joe Dispenza’s book “You Are the Placebo.” Learn more at this link: https://hubs.la/Q010Kjvd0

We have all grown up in a world that is severely mixed up about where one person begins and another ends. Each person has to look at the specific way in which his or her boundaries were not allowed to grow. It is no wonder that seeing the crowds, Jesus “had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd” (Matt. 9:36). God realizes how lost we really are, and he wishes to help us rebuild our boundaries and the sense of identity we lost at the fall.

Join me in the journey of rebuilding boundaries at boundaries.me.

A Lesson from Kristin’s book: Fierce Self-Compassion ✨🔥

Anger without love is hate, but love without anger is hollow and sugarcoated. When love meets injustice, it’s angry.

As Zen Roshi Bernie Glassman writes, “Anger is considered a poison when it’s self-motivated and self-centered. But take that attachment to the self out of anger and the same emotion becomes the fierce energy of determination, which is a very positive force.”

We’re both tender goddesses and fierce warriors. One without the other is incomplete.

People who succeed in life do not go around settling scores. They do not even keep score. They “run up the score” by doing good to others, even when the others do not deserve it. They give them better than they are given. And as a result, they often bring the other person up to their level instead of being brought down to the level of the other. They are a redemptive force… They change things for the better.
