Day 316: That’s how the light gets in

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.

— Leonard Cohen (1934-2016)

Painfully apt because I’m reading Brene Brown’s Daring Greatly, all about vulnerability and strength. I’ve only just finished the chapter about relinquishing the pursuit of perfection and freeing yourself from the belief that everything you want and can do is scarce. Oddly liberating. Definitely enlightening. But it’s 100% kicking my ass, this book.

  1. I’ve been meaning to pick this one up for such a long time. I saw her TED Talk and was instantly interested in knowing more about her research and work. She seems brilliant. Do share your views as you read it further. I’m ordering it right away. Thanks for the reminder! Hope you’re enjoying the getaway.

    PS – You seem to have linked the wrong page, it redirects to her other book, Rising Strong. You might want to check that.

    Good day dear!
