i deserve help, je mérite de l’aide

this week's affirmation is…

i deserve help, je mérite de l’aide

“somehow we've come to equate success with not needing anyone. many of us are willing to extend a helping hand, but we're very reluctant to reach out for help when we need it ourselves. it's as if we've divided the world into “those who offer help” and “those who need help.” the truth is that we are both.”

let's begin this week's newsletter with a ted talk from brené brown


ted talk | the power of vulnerability by brené brown

brené brown studies human connection -- our ability to empathize, belong, love. in a poignant, funny talk at tedxhouston, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. a talk to share.

 

next, our book recommendation...

 

the gifts of imperfection: 10th anniversary edition by brené brown

"this book is an invitation to join a wholehearted revolution. a small, quiet, grassroots movement that starts with each of us saying, 'my story matters because i matter. revolution might sound a little dramatic, but in this world, choosing authenticity and worthiness is an absolute act of resistance." brené brown

 

lastly, our film recommendations...

 

patch adams (1998) starring robin williams

the true story of a heroic man, hunter "patch" adams, determined to become a medical doctor because he enjoys helping people. he ventured where no doctor had ventured before, using humour and pathos

 

a bonus, in celebration of our debut collection, namesake, lola falana who turned 81 on september 11, a playlist...
