Hi! 
 
Last week, Ashley reminded us of Brené Brown’s thoughts on love. I’m a total Brené Brown fangirl, so I’m going to share another passage this week. It's from her book,  The Gifts of Imperfection . In a way, this quote is also about love. It's about speaking from the heart, or speaking from a place of love and compassion. 
 
Courage is a heart word. The root of the word  courage  is  cor —the Latin word for heart. In one of its earliest forms, the word  courage  meant "To speak one's mind by telling all one's heart." Over time, this definition has changed, and today, we typically associate courage with heroic and brave deeds. But in my opinion, this definition fails to recognize the inner strength and level of commitment required for us to actually speak honestly and openly about who we are and about our experiences – good and bad. Speaking from our hearts is what I think of as "ordinary courage.”

I really like this idea of "telling all one's heart" as an act of courage. It takes quite a bit of strength to express ourselves in authentic and meaningful ways. It takes strength to always speak our truth. This month, as we celebrate love for ourselves and love for others, let us remember to always speak from heart. 

Warmly, 
Alicia
