One of the things I’ve wanted to do for some time is take an online class. There are several that have caught my eye over the last year or so and I know I’ll end up taking more, but one really spoke to me tonight. I had jotted myself a note to check out Mondo Beyondo in January over at Superhero Journal. I spotted the note yesterday and then promptly lost it. Today, after some searching, I found it again. Went to the correct blog and checked out what was going to be happening. They are collaborating with Dr. Brene Brown (of the University of Houston!) for the Winter Dream Lab. The focus will be the Gifts of Imperfection! Hey, I’m all over that! I am as imperfect as the next woman and quite honestly, have never really wanted to be perfect, but I would like to learn to be happier with my imperfections. All of them. You know what I mean?
This is the line that hooked me — “What if 2011 was simply about being enough?” Have you noticed the tagline on my blog header lately? It says “this is my life, the moments that make me — ME — the moments that make me — ENOUGH!”
I have not always known that I am enough. I had the gift of a friend’s betrayal to open my eyes and show me that I am. For more than a year now, I’ve been living my daily life in a way that I hope reinforces that I am enough to myself. I don’t have to prove this to anyone else. Only myself. If someone else is helped by my talking about it though, that is an added blessing. So, when I saw what the class was going to be about, I signed up!
I encourage you to click on the link above in the posting and go see the video here of Dr. Brown speaking. I liked her so much, that it clinched the deal and it also makes me want to sign up for her classes at the University of Houston.
Winter Dream Lab starts on January 10th, 2011!
