I know I said I would write a weekly post on inspiration and what inspires me, but...well, I really don't have much of an excuse except that I have other things that take priority. That's not to say I don't have the time, but sometimes I have to prioritize what's going on in my head. Writing a blog post every week on what inspires me went to the bottom of that list. However, I still find things inspiring, and I want to be able to share them here. Hence the new name of this post: Current Inspiration. To be honest, being forced to come up with something interesting every week is not only a chore for me, but would most likely become boring for you. Uninteresting content is the last thing I want on my blog. So, now to my current inspiration...
I may have mentioned Chase Jarvis in my last post, but he's worth mentioning again. Today (April 9, 2014) he has a chasejarvisLIVE* episode coming up at 11AM Mountain Time. He will be interviewing a woman by the name of Brené Brown. I mention this because I just watched Brené Brown's TED talk, and wanted to share it here. I wanted to share it because I think it's pertinent to our society today. We are vulnerable as human beings, but we are afraid to show any kind of vulnerability. Keeping it in and letting it fester will only bring out bad habits and mistrust. I know I struggle with this and am often seen as closed off or reserved. This TED talk made me feel like I might need to work on being more vulnerable as a person. That's not something we say very often as human beings, but it might just be the ticket to success and happiness.
*If you miss the live episode on Chase's website, don't fret. He posts all of his past episodes at the same link.
