Passionate about 

what I do

 

 

I have just finished reading the book Daring Greatly by Brene Brown. She is an author and researcher who is an expert in the field of shame. I mentioned one of her other books earlier in the year.

In this book she shares what she calls the Wholehearted Parenting Manifesto which sums up what parents can commit to do in order to help their children grow up to be wholehearted individuals and live a life of joy. I highly recommend the book. There will be a link to the book on my website under Recommended Books. You can download a copy of the manifesto at her website www.brenebrown.com.

As always, please pass along this information to someone you feel may benefit from its content.

Enjoy the rest of summer and be safe. I present to you the Wholehearted Parenting Manifesto:

Sincerely,

From The Positive Perspective......    

Above all else, I want you to know that you are loved and lovable.

You will learn this from my words and actions - the lessons on love are in how I treat you and how I treat myself.

I want you to engage with the world from a place of worthiness.

You will learn that you are worthy of love, belonging, and joy every time you see me practice self-compassion and embrace my own imperfections.

We will practice courage in our family by showing up, letting ourselves be seen, and honoring vulnerability. We will share our stories of struggle and strength. There will always be room in our home for both.

We will teach you compassion by practicing compassion with ourselves first; then with each other. We will set and respect boundaries; we will honor hard work, hope, and perseverance. Rest and play will be family values, as well as family practices.

You will learn accountability and respect by watching me make mistakes and make amends, and by watching how I ask for what I need and talk about how I feel.

I want you to know joy, so together we will practice gratitude .

I want you to feel joy, so together we will learn how to be vulnerable.

When uncertainty and scarcity visit, you will be able to draw from the spirit that is a part of our everyday life.

Together we will cry and face fear and grief. I will want to take away your pain, but instead I will sit with you and teach you how to feel it.

We will laugh and dance and sing and create. We will always have permission to be ourselves with each other. No matter what, you will always belong here. 

As you begin your Wholehearted journey, the greatest gift that I can give to you is to live and love with my whole heart and to dare greatly.

I will not teach or love or show you anything perfectly, but I will let you see me, and I will always hold sacred the gift of seeing you. Truly, deeply, seeing you.
