Vulnerability: Brené Brown at TEDxHouston

Hello lovely fragrant people,

We are cleaning the Perfume Room and giving it a new paint job. It’s quite a BIG DEAL so over the next couple of days I am dropping in some Video stuff that I’ve found interesting, educational or took me outside my box. Some of it is ONE TOPIC but some will also be TOTALLY OFF TOPIC!

Vulnerability: Brené Brown at TEDxHouston

Today I am introducing you to someone who changed the way I think about how I live my life. You may know I have had some low level depression over the years, nothing dramatic, just a buzz of blue flying low for a while that would disappear as it had come. Part of what my problems were was exactly what Brené Brown talks about here. Opening myself up to being vulnerable. Now Brené Brown wasn’t the first person to give me this blueprint for a happier life, though she does put it better and more amusingly than others, but as I was already beginning the road to change when I heard her speak the resonance was incredible. Give this smart, funny, insightful person a few minutes of your time and she may help you change outmoded behaviour patterns that you are using, or maybe just because it’s a very entertaining watch.

From Wikipedia
TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is a global set of conferences owned by the private non-profit Sapling Foundation, under the slogan “ideas worth spreading”.
TED was founded in 1984 as a one-off event. The annual conference began in 1990, in Monterey, California. TED’s early emphasis was technology and design, consistent with its origins in the Silicon Valley.

TED Site <<<JUMP for anyone inspired, anywhere in the world, who would like to go and be a part of these amazing talks.

Please enjoy the amazing……..

  1. Thank you for sharing this, Portia. Had not seen it before but really enjoyed watching it. Looking forward to what comes up while cleaning 😉

    Wishing you and Jin a very good year !


    • Lovely to see you Esperanza,
      It’s a good piece and really made me think about what I think.
      The new year has started smoothly, we can only hope for continuance. Wishing you the big three too: Health, Wealth and Happiness

    • The book goes into more of what she gave the talk about, and even though I read that book, watching the talk, just reinforces more deeply what she is sharing. It is beautiful, and I cried as I watched it.

      This is a time of expansion and I am appreciating all that is coming to me.

      Thank you for sharing Portia!!!!!

      I cant wait to see your perfume room. 🙂


  2. OMG, I just love Brene. I have watched her videos many times, caught her on Oprah’s soul series plus have read Daring Greatly and am about 1/2 way through The Gifts of Inspiration. She has definitely inspired some changes for me, and continues to do so. Thanks for sharing this!!!


    • YAY Tora,
      I’m glad people already know Brene and her work. My BFF introduced me to her a while ago, I keep rewatching this one, it speaks to me.

    • She is amazing. Don’t you love how after this she went crazy and hid herself away, then had to realign herself with the new FAMOUS Brene Brown?
      She rocks.
      Portia xx
