falling hurtsAll credit for this post goes to Brene Brown, the author of Rising Strong.

Brene is an amazing clinician, woman and sister who is conquering shame and unworthiness with Truth and Light!

If you need a great new author, read any of her books and you will be equipped with tools and new awareness!

This manifesto is for all the women who have encouraged me in my journey.  Some of you I am blessed to share my life on a daily basis.  Others, I have never personally met.  All of you inspire me to keep on moving forward, being brave and Rising Strong.

Thank you my sisters and fellow sojourners for being authentic, open and honest with your stories and your lives.

MANIFESTO OF THE BRAVE AND BROKENHEARTED

There is no greater threat to the critics and cynics and fearmongers

than those of us willing to fall

Because we have learned to rise

 

With skinned knees and bruised hearts;

We choose owning our stories over struggle,

over hiding, over hustling, over pretending.

 

When we deny our stories, they define us.

When we run from struggle, we are never free.

So we turn toward truth and look it in the eye.

 

We will not be characters in our own stories.

Not villains, not victims, not even heroes.

 

We are the authors of our lives.

We write our own daring endings.

 

We craft love from heartbreak,

Compassion from shame,

Grace from disappointment,

Courage from failure.

 

Showing up is our power.

Story is our way home.

Truth is our song.

We are the brave and brokenhearted.

We are rising strong.
