If Brene Brown lived in my head, perfectionism would no longer hinder my productivity, stifle my creativity or inhibit my vulnerability. The little voices in my head that insist "I'm still not good enough" would miraculously disappear. And all that empowering self-help stuff I do would stick; including the therapy, intensive journaling and creative movement expression.
If Brene Brown lived in my head, I'd quit celebrating "busy" and debilitating exhaustion and let myself experience life's pleasures guilt-free. I'd probably experience some inner-peace rather than feeling like a frazzled hot mess; scrambling to check things off my endless, self-imposed to-do list that could probably wait for me to... exhale. I'd finally take some time to savor life, explore my creativity and nurture relationships. Ha! Maybe I'd actually have time for love!
If Brene Brown lived in my head, authenticity would feel so natural and comfortable that it would instantly curb my people-pleasing tendencies that sometimes compromise my integrity. I'd lose any lingering need for external validation. And I bet life's uncertainties would no longer clutter my mind with self-doubt but inspire me to "dwell in possibility". I could face life and all its experiences with courage, compassion and connection instead of fear, judgement and loneliness.
If Brene Brown lived in my head, I'd better sustain my power to engage life from a place of worthiness! But she doesn't. As a consolation prize (that far from sucks) I have her book, The Gifts of Imperfection. Not a passive process, it puts the onus on me to keep doing the work of conscious transformation. But what a powerfully liberating experience it is!
