WHAT I AM READING RIGHT NOW
By Tamara Scott Crowley
I always have a book (or two) that I am reading, and at the moment it is “Rising Strong” by Brené Brown.
I was guided to this book because a colleague recommended that I watch her Netflix documentary titled “A Call To Courage.” I was HOOKED! In the documentary, she discusses how vulnerability is the key component to courage, and that it requires uncertainty, risk or emotional exposure. (YIKES!!! All the things I like to mitigate to maintain that “I have everything under control” exterior veneer.)
In “Rising Strong”, the book shares what happens when we are brave, utterly fail and how we pick ourselves up again to go on. Brown explores what people with really amazing relationships, business leaders guiding their teams, and artists pushing the creative boundaries have in common. The answer? They recognize the power of emotion and they’re not afraid to lean in to discomfort.
Have I failed in major, epic ways in this lifetime? Absolutely! Was I able to pick myself up again afterwards? Yes! However, I didn’t have the knowledge to identify where I was in the process and some important tools to help me through the resolution, which this book provides.
Books speak to the soul and come to you when you need them. At the moment, this book is helping me to dare to be courageous and vulnerable, and share emotionally when I would prefer to appear that I have the emotional range of Spock from Star Trek.
When you leave your comfort zone, take risks and are fearless, you are going to fail. It is inevitable. It’s how you pick yourself back up and go on is what is important.
“Rising Strong” encourages you to be fearless, vulnerable, and to ensure that at the end of this life you have explored and created whatever your heart and soul intended.
I am off to go create out of my comfort zone. Happy reading!
Over the years, I have read thousands of books regarding various aspects of the spiritual path and our neighbors from other galaxies. Below is a listing of a few favorite books or web sites that have helped me on my journey. PLEASE NOTE: This is just a tiny fraction of the sources that I resonate with the most, and I am not discounting any author because they are not on the list.
I encourage you to use your own intuition to discover a book, read a flyer or check out a website that you are guided to – or that people keep mentioning to you. Your guides and higher self are helping to ‘”light the way” for your next step on the path.
I wish you many hours of enjoyment and synchronicity as you find “the next piece of the puzzle.”
