Our book club read this month is the second of Brene’s books that I have read. I love her style and the way she is accessible even though she is a an academic. Braving the wilderness is good for those looking for a map to guide their decisions and navigate through fear.

One thing I took from Brene’s book was her B.R.A.V.I.N.G acronym and if people use that to guide their life’s decision they will be directed to an authentic path. Below is what the acronym stands for:

B Boundaries – Did I respect my boundaries?
R Reliability – Was I reliable?
A Accountable – Was I accountable?
V Vault – Did I share what was not mine to share?
I Integrity – Did I act with Integrity?
N Non-Judgement – Was I non-judgemental towards myself
G Generous – Was I generous towards myself?

As usual, I am interested in your thoughts, what did you think of this book? You have a whole month let me know your thoughts.
