Review: Rising Strong

Rising Strong Rising Strong by Brené Brown
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love Brown's work. She captures so much of our internal lives and helps us learn the language to speak about it. Rising Strong follows along these lines in helping us thinking about our inner lives and feelings and finding powerful ways to externalize them, talk about them, and move through them in the moment and throughout our lives. She does this both through research and through storytelling--explaining how the work she is doing plays out in her daily life and others. There are some powerful moments throughout this book, but for me was her exploration of the thought: "What if everyone is really doing their best?" This question and where it leads her (as well as myself) is something that we should always be asking.
