POWERFUL. Read this quote a couple times ⬇️.
“Our job is not to deny the story, but to defy the ending—to rise strong, recognize our story, and rumble with the truth until we get to a place where we think, Yes. This is what happened. And I will choose how the story ends.” —Brené Brown.
Brene Speaks to my SOUL
First let me say, Brené Brown speaks to my soul, speaks to my idiosyncrasies, speaks to my heart, & makes me stop and ask myself, “what would Brené say” in certain situations. When I need someone to paint a clear picture of what I’m thinking and feeling, she nails it every time. I mean nails it.
Very early in our journey I was hesitant to share our story. Fear of judgement, fear of what people would think, & the feeling of shame vocally admitting to our debts & our thoughts on money and its power over our happiness in both positive and negative ways.
I was denying our story.
Our story is what fuels my passion for a NEW career! We share because we wish we had found a story like ours from someone else to help us stand up and push for change. Maybe ours will do this for others? Who knows…but our story keeps us locked in and empowered knowing that we are actively defying our ending!
“Courage is contagious. A critical mass of brave leaders is the foundation of an intentionally courageous culture. Every time we are brave with our lives, we make the people around us a little braver and our organizations bolder and stronger.” —Brené Brown.
Thanks to all of you for reading and following along with our story! Now, go defy your ending!
