Rising Strong
Rising Strong | Brené Brown
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERWhen we deny our stories, they define us. When we own our stories, we get to write the ending.   Social scientist Brené Brown has ignited a global conversation on courage, vulnerability, shame, and worthiness. Her pioneering work uncovered a profound truth: Vulnerability—the willingness to show up and be seen with no guarantee of outcome—is the only path to more love, belonging, creativity, and joy. But living a brave life is not always easy: We are, inevitably, going to stumble and fall.   It is the rise from falling that Brown takes as her subject in Rising Strong. As a grounded theory researcher, Brown has listened as a range of people—from leaders in Fortune 500 companies and the military to artists, couples in long-term relationships, teachers, and parents—shared their stories of being brave, falling, and getting back up. She asked herself, What do these people with strong and loving relationships, leaders nurturing creativity, artists pushing innovation, and clergy walking with people through faith and mystery have in common? The answer was clear: They recognize the power of emotion and they’re not afraid to lean in to discomfort.   Walking into our stories of hurt can feel dangerous. But the process of regaining our footing in the midst of struggle is where our courage is tested and our values are forged. Our stories of struggle can be big ones, like the loss of a job or the end of a relationship, or smaller ones, like a conflict with a friend or colleague. Regardless of magnitude or circumstance, the rising strong process is the same: We reckon with our emotions and get curious about what we’re feeling; we rumble with our stories until we get to a place of truth; and we live this process, every day, until it becomes a practice and creates nothing short of a revolution in our lives. Rising strong after a fall is how we cultivate wholeheartedness. It’s the process, Brown writes, that teaches us the most about who we are.From the Hardcover edition.

Snuggled up in bed reading with the sweetest kitty in the world, my Ladybug.
Ladybug was recently hit by a car in our court and had to have surgery to remove the femoral head of her leg bone (femur) after it was dislocated from the accident. She is recovering very well. Being only 2 years old and having had major surgery 18 months previous to this on her ear drum, I think this kitty is showing us exactly what rising strong looks like.

Four of my 5-star reads in 2019 are by author‘s telling stories from their own life. Although Rising Strong is not technically a memoir it is filled with meaningful life lessons from Brene Brown‘s personal experience with her own family. If only I could go back in time to apply her advice and preface my conflicts with, “The story I‘m telling myself”.

After first seeing her on Netflix recently, I reserved a couple of Brene Browns books at the library, and they've come in!
Having a squiz while the kids swim today...

I've just finished The Handmaid's Tale this morning so feeling a little lost and empty, I hope this fills the gap :)

marleed I listened to Rising Strong on overdrive through the library. The very day I finished I headed to the bookstore for my own brand new hardback physical copy. That is my requirement for the 5* review that I rarely give out! 2mo
Curiouser_and_curiouser @marleed Wow, highly recommended then! Thank you. I did the same with the Anthony William books. I borrowed 3 of them from the library only got through 1.5, then ordered them all online when they were due back. Some books are just invaluable. I'm looking forward to this one, she seems like a fun person 2mo

Finished Rising Strong today. First I‘ve read by Brené Brown. Found a lot of gems and inspiration. I would be interested in reading more of her work. Overlapped a lot with the class on Conflict Resolution I‘m taking right now.
.
Excited to get back into some fiction though!

As always, Brené Brown is freaking fantastic and totally kicked my butt. I almost feel bad about how destroyed this book got in its travels.

Non-fiction is not my forte, and this book reminded me of that. However, the principles and research that Brené lays out in Rising Strong are invaluable. I see myself marinating on this book and possibly reading it again to see how I‘m applying her insight to my life.

“In fact, for most of us who rely on blaming and finding fault, the need for control is so strong that we‘d rather have something be our fault than succumb to the bumper-sticker wisdom of ‘shit happens.‘ If stuff just happens, how do I control that? Fault-finding fools us into believing that someone is always to blame, hence, controlling the outcome is possible. But blame is as corrosive as it is unproductive.” #somuchtruth

After a somewhat challenging week at work where I was placed in a situation that I wish I could have handled better and feeling defeated, I decided to pick this book up next. So far, so good. Especially loving this quote, as a perfectionist-to-a-fault: “Perfection is about the furthest thing in the world from badassery.” #preachtome

In case ya‘ll didn‘t know- I fucking love a readathon.

And #25infive (its technically hosted on Instagram) is my favorite. Mostly because it‘s the only one I can feasibly finish.

So please see the books I wish to dabble in above.

*please note I said dabble as there‘s no way I finish this 800 page monster that is I am Pilgrim.

Melissa_J I Am Pilgrim reads very quickly. You may well be able to finish 😊 8mo
Bookcation74 I LOVE I am Pilgrim!! I google Terry Hayes regularly to check on the status of his next book! 8mo
Ashley_Nicoletto @Melissa_J @Bookcation74 This is so encouraging. I had never heard of it, but recently listen to someone just SELL it on a podcast and my library had it available so it was meant to be. 8mo

I heart Brene so much! Listening to her on #audio is like having a conversation with a good friend. This book is all about being able to move on from things that don't go our way and keep going! Brene's research is always on point and her writing style is so approachable and relatable. She's always so easy to understand too

blurb

Rising Strong | Brené Brown

Brown believes that "people do their best" in terms of how they behave toward each other. Apparently, Brown has never actually left her house. Brown then follows this ridiculous statement by quoting her husband, who said, "Do I believe that people do their best? No. But I need to believe that they do." And that right there is why I don't read happy horseshit, self-help books. Something isn't true? Ignore it and pretend otherwise. No thank you.

This was actually Rising Strong As A Spiritual Practice, an Amazon original. Not so much a book as a talk. It expanded on Rising Strong with more examples.

Wonderful academic piece on how we “get triggered.” This isn‘t a “think positive” and your life will change book. This is about processing your pain and understanding previous shame which drives our future responses. I love the journaling idea, as I used to journal anonymously, but I think I want more than “story development” as suggested.

I suppose, in keeping with the theme of the book and Brown‘s work as a whole, I should share the personally hard-hitting bits and not just the empowering ones. Another “please come pierce my shell” reminder.

Talking about regrets, this is a quote from George Saunders I found interesting. I‘ve never thought of kindness in terms of mild vs strong or reserved vs aggressive.
