I devoured this book, pen in hand, and marked up much more than I usually do in any book. Starting with the very first paragraph of the introduction: Wholehearted living is about engaging in our lives from a place of worthiness.
It means cultivating the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough. It's going to bed at night thinking, Yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable and sometimes afraid but that doesn't change the truth that I am worthy of love and belonging.
Seriously, I sat there staring at that paragraph for a full ten minutes as I let it sink in. How did the author know? How did she know that I equate my full plate--how much I get done in a day--to my self worth?
How did she know how afraid I am to show my weaknesses especially the weaknesses I haven't fully embraced yet? How did she know that I often don't feel loved?
Or that I don't feel like I really belong anywhere? How did she know? And it dawned on me that maybe we all feel like this to an extent.
And yet, I watch others and I am sure, absolutely sure, that they know something about living that I don't. And maybe they do But maybe they haven't. I admit, that whole thing about Who I Am vs.
Who I Am Supposed to Be gets me every time.
I think it's a fine line between embracing things I shouldn't embrace and being okay with where I am right now. I think that I should strive to be better, and maybe Who I Am is not good enough. So, I admittedly bristled a bit at the subtitle there.
