Do you know Brené Brown? Dr. Brené Brown is a writer, researcher, and educator. She has spent the past ten years studying connection - specifically authenticity, belonging, and shame, and the affect these powerful emotions have on the way we live, love, parent, work and build relationships.
This is Brene talking. "The heart of my work is about the very human need to live with authenticity, love and belonging, and a resilient spirit. I call this WholeHearted living. I have dedicated my career to studying difficult topics like shame, empathy, and vulnerability because I want to know, in my head and in my heart, why we’re all so afraid to let our true selves be seen and known. I want to hear and tell the stories that inspire us to be real, imperfect, and powerful. The core of WholeHearted living is connection."
Brene wants us to live OUT LOUD! She says,
"Let’s take to the streets with our messy, imperfect, wild, stretch-marked, wonderful, heartbreaking, grace-filled, and joyful lives. I don’t care who you are or how big your house is or how perfect your life looks – EVERYONE has a story that will break your heart. Let’s tell our stories and reclaim those hearts – every single piece!"
This piece is just a little reminder to live with authenticity!
This print is a reproduction of one of my magically delicious original mixed-media collages. It is printed with acid-free/archival inks onto 8.5 x 11, 80lb. acid-free/archival Ultra Premium Presentation Fancy Pants Matte paper by Epson. Prints are ready to pop right into a standard 8x10 frame.
Each print is signed, and comes with an 'about the artist' bio on the back. Then, each is packaged on a strong backing board, and tucked in a clear sleeve and shipped flat in a protective mailer - you can't love on a piece any more than that!
