Book 15 - Daring Greatly

For the record I started reading this before Brene Brown was on Oprah. Back in December And Kathleen of Braid recommended this for Creatives. I added it to my reading list because well I never actually really know what to get at the library.  Anyhow it was certainly a book worth reading.  It's a easy read and its a read where you want to bookmark and highlight content to remember so you can embrace vulnerability.  I also appreciate that her book is built on research it's not just a book telling people to deal and be happy. I love the manifesto's the parents one is also good. 
And with that I leave you with this Teddy Roosevelt quote about daring greatly -  
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” —Theodore Roosevelt
