'Thank you for being such a normal person’, she said, ‘finally someone who is kind to me’ she added. I saw the tears in her eyes and at the same time I also felt the experience of a joyful moment ✨.
‘People are doing the best they can’ these are words from a book of Brené Brown that I am reading 😍. I’ve experienced so much recognition, so many moments where I thought: ‘Oh I do this too 🙃 or yes this happend to me too 🙄’.
If I keep thinking, like Brené, that everyone is doing their best it helps me a lot. Not only to deal with for example unkindness but also to be mild and to be compassionate with others. And this does a lot of good to my heart 💛. Really it does ☺️. 'Thank you for being such a normal person’, she said. It was wonderful to see how she could ‘upload’ herself with warm kindness☀️. You know, everyone is fighting with something 🤺. It is not because you do not see it that it is not there. The backpack 🎒 that some people have to carry is often very heavy and yet invisible. So be gentle and mild because everyone is doing the best they can 🏆. Click on the link in bio to read the full story 😉. I wish you all a lovely weekend 😘 xxxx Claudine

Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.

這篇文章改寫自友人的資格考essay，使用了我的偶像Brene Brown的理論，雖然不是第一作者，但感到非常滿足。雖然Prof Brown已經紅遍全球，但SRT在華文學術圈的能見度仍然很低，很高興自己終於用這個理論寫了文章。三天前剛在seminar報告過這篇文章，因為是用英文報告，結束後羞愧感大增，真的沒有準備好。要用非母語講述一套理論概念，對我來說還是太困難了，何況我還來不及先寫好講稿，實在違背了當初選這篇文章的意義，就是希望好好地把SRT跟Grounded Theory介紹給大家。

@brenebrown has such a way with telling it how it is. I took one of her semester long online classes called Daring Greatly and it was a game changer for me. I still pull out my workbook from time to time and get renewed by the lessons.
A couple of my biggest takeaways were learning what my deepest value is that lights my way through life. Knowing this value and being able to look back at my decisions and choices throughout my life has been incredible. I now can move through life with this awareness and know when I get that feeling of uncertainty, I check in with my value.
The second takeaway was learning to give myself permission. In the course you are asked to write down permission slips (Brené is a huge fan of sticky notes) and let yourself be vulnerable, be raw, speak your truth, ask for what you needs, etc.
When I was going through this course especially, but even now, I noticed that people would give me feedback about my dirt on my face as a result of being face down in the arena and offer tons of advice and opinions—usually while their own lives were a complete mess. Funny how people do that. 🙄
I say get in the arena. Do the work. Get dirty and messy. Then wipe off the dust and go on stronger than ever.

I felt this one pretty deeply... Yesterday, in a conversation, I expressed discomfort with the seemingly persistent and pervasive competitive mentality of life today, the glorification of busy, and the lack of happiness that can arise from not feeling like you are/doing/being "enough" compared to what you think the world expects of you.
The answer I was given is that it's no crime to just be happy. So, just do what makes you happy. Constantly striving for more doesn't serve you if it doesn't bring you to a place of joy, does it?
What is it that YOU want in your life? Seeking the extraordinary can bring fun, success, and interesting opportunity, but if you feel unhappy, ask yourself if it aligns with what you want or if it's something you're doing because of what you think everyone else wants you to want.
What makes you happy? Where do you find joy? Go there. Go back to basics, and let the ordinary, joyful moments take you to extraordinary heights. 🙏🏻

I have a confession to make: I’m a horrible foster mom.
Yesterday morning was a rough morning. Everyone in our house has been collectively sick for over a month. We haven’t been sleeping well so our moods have been off the chart lately. J was a recipient of the gremlins and I let them feed into my response.
Long story short, J was making pillow forts on the couch after he told me he wasn’t feeling well and wanted to lay down. I asked him to clean up because it was time to get ready for school and a showdown of sorts occurred.
Words were said. Stances were taken. A tantrum of greatest proportions ensued. And I failed greatly.
In a moment where I am usually calm and collected, I faulted. I said the worst thing that a foster parent could ever say, “I’m done. I’m going to call your caseworker to come and get you.” Fuuucccckkkkkk. I regretted it as soon as I said it. J’s whole body went limp, his face askewed, and tears started to well in his eyes. He shot up off of the floor and stomped up to his room, where he proceeded to wail, “She doesn’t want me anymore. I can’t live here anymore.”
I was dumbfounded. Lost and hurt and disappointed in my own words. I sat there for 5 minutes gathering my emotions and thoughts as I also became gravely aware that D was just around the corner, quietly singing to herself while stacking her animals.
I walked upstairs and opened J’s door. He immediately stopped crying and stared straight at me; fear in his eyes. I sat on the floor and apologized and told him I would never call G to come and get him. He said he didn’t want to leave and that he was sorry. We hugged and he went to school and had a phenomenal day. I’m always worried about his ability to rebound from stressful situations, especially because of his emotion regulation issues, and here this kid and I go toe to toe and he completely turns it around.
I am a horrible foster mom.

The fourteenth day if Christmas and my dietitian shared with me...
How shame around food and our body can affect my parenting. .
Thank you @brenebrown for creating these fabulous books and doing the important shame research you do. We love your work! Especially as dietitians who wish to shift the shame around food and bodies so it’s not part of our children’s internal dialogue. Body and food shaming have lasting damage, when you food shame or body shame a child it’s not a motivator. We have to fight diet culture and foster a love our different shapes and body types. As well as empowering our children to honor their natural intuitive eating. We hope you pick up a Brené Brown book and definitely watch her Ted Talk! #positiveparenting #parenting #shame #antiediet #haes #brenebrown #igquotes #quotes #bookstagram

🤝 Equal parenting is a consistent topic in many workplaces, but it often feels like it’s not going anywhere. Are we shying away from talking about the hard stuff, or are we just wary of the very personal feelings we all have about sharing the load? @gracemccarter sat down with @colljmorgan and @jesshuddart to find out - link to the blog piece in our bio. If you’d like to join the conversation - hit us up on #JMParenthood on Twitter!

Have you listened to my latest podcast; FOUR BOUNDARIES YOU NEED TO SET IN YOUR FRIENDSHIPS (PART ONE) yet? #Boundaries
It’s for those of you who get taken advantage of by friends or people who just TAKE, TAKE, TAKE (we all know these people, right?). It’s actually for anyone who has friendships (which is all of us) because FRIENDSHIPS NEED BOUNDARIES #TrueStory
It’s a two parter because I’ve got a bit more to say on the topic but I’ll be releasing that in January 2019, I promise to make it worth the wait (or at least try).
So, what’re you waiting for? Jump onto the link in my bio and get your ears around it ✌🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Getting vulnerable is never easy. Perhaps that’s why I shared this in my VIP healthy hub rather than publicly but it’s a message that I believe in so here goes... let me know if you can relate... 💕
Perhaps you know the feeling, you have a nice evening planned with someone you love and haven’t spent much time with lately. You’ve been cooking up a storm for a yummy meal and you get the call....
The one that tells you your efforts have been ‘wasted’ (at least that’s how it feels!)
That’s me tonight after a call from hubby who gave me the wrong dates for yet ANOTHER Christmas night out so he’s not coming home for dinner 😤
So, I got sad and a little bit mad.
Then, after a mini pity party, I got a grip, reminded myself of all the personal development work I’ve done and knew that I have to implement it and walk the talk! 👌🏻
I gave myself a pep talk- no one else is responsible for our happiness, life happens and we get to choose. Will we play the blame game and let it ruin our night, our day, our week, our relationship?
Or will we take charge of our energy & embrace the opportunity?
In my case, I know that crazy dancing always makes me happy so when the children put STEPS 5 6 7 8 on, how could I not dance about like a lune, laugh and mess about with the children? (I 💕 cheesy tunes!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I now have a opportunity to get the children to bed & enjoy one of my favourite all time activities of a soak in the tub 💕
What do you do to change your energy when you’re in a funk? 🤷🏼♀️

Wir sehen oft nur die Spitze vom Eisberg. Weiße Strände, türkisenes Wasser, Traumfiguren, immer lachend, immer glücklich. Die perfekte Instagram Welt. 🌴☀️
Aber wie sieht es im Inneren dieser Menschen aus? Was kostet es sie, dieses Traumbild aufrecht zu erhalten? Welch immense Last entsteht dadurch, ein Leben nach außen zu zeigen, das nicht der Realität entspricht? Viele zerreißen innerlich an diesem Erwartungsdruck, den sie selbst erschaffen haben.
Ich glaube, es ist nicht leicht, wenn gar unmöglich, ein vollständiges, authentisches Bild von sich auf Instagram zu zeichnen. Denn jeder sieht, was er sehen will. Mein Wunsch ist es allerdings, dass immer mehr Menschen sich trauen, offen und ehrlich ihre Gedanken und Gefühle zu teilen. Auf Social Media sowie auf den Straßen. Ich glaube, das täte uns allen verdammt gut. Was meinst du?
Verlinke einen ❤️-ens Menschen, der diese Nachricht brauchen könnte.

Non camminare attraverso il mondo cercando l' evidenza di ció a cui non appartieni. Perchè la troverai. Non camminare attraverso il mondo cercando la conferma che non sei abbastanza.Perchè la troverai sempre. Il nostro Valore e la nostra Appartenenza non deve essere negoziata con altre persone. Li abbiamo giá dentro i nostri cuori. 🙏🌹🍭🧘

“Daring to set boundaries is about having the courage to love ourselves even when risk disappointing others .”Brene Brown.
In life when we are living based on the expectations and boundaries set by those around us it can seem like we are walking on a very fine line ... Lately in counseling and through my own personal life experiences recently I have been practicing creating and setting my own expectations and boundaries.Which has been so challenging yet liberating! The hardest part has been sharing these with others ... because MAN...I’ve realized there is no better way to offend others when you tell them that what you want isn’t what they want for you 🙄 ! Which is just really silly when you think about it .While going with the flow is grand , there is also such empowerment ,when we go against the norm ,speak our truth and honor our self care by managing our boundaries and expectations.

I have absolutely loved diving into a few of Brené Brown’s books the last few months. If you’re looking for a good read, go check her out. We could all benefit from her profound research-based wisdom on the uncommonly talked about subjects such as courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy. .
“Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path.” - Brené Brown

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing” - Shaw.
Play is spending time without a purpose. Spending time in activities in which we lose ourselves - in which time seems to vanish.✨
Research shows play is essential to wellbeing - to creativity, resilience, emotional balance. But when we are busy it is often the first thing many of us sacrifice, me included!
The holidays are a great opportunity for some playtime, but play needs to be a part of the working year too.✨
So how do we make time for play?
1. Make a “play list” - list a handful or activities you happily lose yourself in.
2. Schedule some “playtime” or “play dates” with a partner - block out unstructured time in your calendar for these activities.
3. Keep to your schedule!
I’ll be trying to increase my play quotient this year.
How do you get your playtime in?

I was recently listening to a recording by Kirk Martin of Celebrate Calm about getting respect as parents. I related a lot to what he was saying but what really stuck out for me was that no one is going to respect me if I don’t respect myself. As a certified facilitator for the work of Dr. Brene Brown about wholehearted living, I know that in order to have a sense of connection and love, I have to BELIEVE that I am worthy of that.
If I apply that to respect, do I believe I am worthy of respect? How do I respect myself? What does that look like to my teenagers? How am I modeling to them the behavior I would like to receive from them.
Here is some food for thought:
1. Do you “give in” to demands or whining because it is easier? Or get angry and lash out? If you respected yourself, what would be different in the following areas- your physical reaction (tone of voice, facial expression, body language, etc.) the language that you use, and possible different results? Write these things down and talk to a loved one about your feelings- NOT YOUR TEENAGER!
2. What does respect look like? List some specifics that make you feel respected. How often do you do those things?
3. How generous are you being with yourself? On a scale of 1-10, how much do you believe that you are doing the best you can with what you have right now?
If you are anything like me, you might be beating yourself up right now with some of your answers. Possibly judging yourself. If you are reading this post, you are already ahead of the game. If you would like to talk about some of your answers just contact me at my website listed in my bio.

I just started reading Brene Brown’s book, “Daring Greatly.” My older sister passed it on to me right after she finished and right after I finished the first 5k I have ever done. I’m only 50 pages in and Brown’s words have struck me to the core. She is incredible and passionate and encourages people to speak and live in their truth No matter how terrifying it may be. Vulnerability gets a bad rap these days and it feels so good to read her message about vulnerability. #brenebrownquotes #brenebrown #vulnerability #vulnerabilityisstrength #speakingonestruth

Started asking myself this question first thing each morning a few months ago. It’s amazing how much more clear the vision for my day is when I remember to start the day this way. I kind of want to paint it on the ceiling above my bed! .
True story, when I was a teenager I took glow in the dark paint and painted a smiley face on the ceiling above my bed so it was the last thing I saw each night. It helped remind me to go to sleep with gratitude and a smile on my face. .
My time is not my own. Often this service looks like taking care of my family or community, often it’s loving on and educating my customers, and sometimes it’s serving him through study and taking care of his temple...me. When I listen, great things happen and I can honestly say I’m happier for it.

I have a confession to make... I recently borrowed “The Gifts of Imperfection” by @brenebrown from my local library. I usually dog ear the pages with passages I want to revisit and jot down in a notebook, but, mindful of annoying the next reader try to limit myself. Well, I went a little overboard with this one, but there was SO much wisdom and I just couldn’t stop! Needless to say I’m getting my own copy for Christmas so I can not only dog ear but underline to my hearts content (together with some post it notes perhaps, for my next library book). This book about living wholeheartedly is so well written and full of insights and practical advice - I can’t recommend it highly enough.

Wrist: Represents #movement and #ease 🏃🏼♀️ 🧘🏼♀️ 💪🏻 .. I handle all my experiences with wisdom, love and with ease. .. Taking this bone break as a message to slow down, have no shame in my game of asking for help, and chill.
Taking a look within to be present.
I broke my wrist playing basketball with teenagers I work with. 🏀
I’ve been on fire.
So the universe through a bucket 💦
I get sick when I don’t slow down.
When I run, run, run.
Go, go, go.
Chase bliss and keep striving for perfection.
Little do we know how perfectly imperfect we all are.
That it’s all an illusion.
That we are not our bodies or our minds.
That we write stories.
Then live plots.
Believing we are what we think we are.
When really we’re infinite.
We’re capable of so much more than we ever imagined possible.
Unaware of the possibilities.
Of what it means to live in true power.
Experiencing full freedom and self expression.
