We are all here to connect, to ourselves, to those around us and to our World. Though, there are some things that may stop us from being able to achieve that connection.

ImageIn her TED presentation, Brené Brown made some superb insights for all of us:

People are filled with shame and fear. “Is there something about me that if other people know it or see it, that I won’t be worthy of connection?”

It’s universal. It’s underpinned by excruciating vulnerability.

In order for connection to happen, we have to allow ourselves to be seen, really seen.

We have to have a sense of worthiness – a strong sense of love and belonging. We believe that we are worthy.

We are wholehearted; we are grand.

We have a sense of courage: to tell the story of who we are, with our whole-heart; the courage to be imperfect.

We have the compassion to be kind to ourselves first, and then to others. Because we cannot treat others with compassion if we can’t treat ourselves kindly, first.

We connect, as a result of authenticity. We are willing to let go of who we thought we should be, to allow ourselves to be who we are.

And, we fully embrace vulnerability. We know that what makes us vulnerable, makes us beautiful. It is necessary and fundamental. We don’t numb vulnerability, because we know that to numb one emotion, you have to numb all of them.

We are wholehearted; we are grand.

You are designed to be brilliant.

Restoring the communication between your brain and your body helps you be your best. It better connects you, to you.

That’s chiropractic.
