Splendid Book Club: Daring Greatly, Week 2 #readsplendidSunday, January 13, 2013
We just wrapped the first official week of the Splendid Book Club. Thanks to everyone who has been participating! It has been fun to follow the Twitter and Instagram feeds and see what other people are gleaning from the book while we're reading together, yet in different parts of the world.
This last week was chapter one of Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent and Lead by Brené Brown, and this coming week we're reading chapter two. If you're new to this, you can follow all the Splendid Book Club posts at readsplendid.com and get the scoop on what it's all about here.
Also, the Atlanta wedding industry has already organized two in-person meet-ups to talk about the book. If you're in the area and would like to join and maybe meet some colleagues you haven't yet, here are the details:

"We are hard wired to connect with others; it's what gives purpose and meaning to our lives. Without it there is suffering." #readsplendid

We humans have a tendency to define things by what they are not. #readsplendid #mth2013

I'd say the one thing we have in common is that we're sick of feeling afraid. We all want to be brave. We want to dare greatly.#readsplendid

I wholeheartedly agree #readsplendid “Worrying about scarcity is our culture’s version of post-traumatic stress.” from itun.es/us/JIOIE.l
