Book: The Gifts of Imperfection by Brené Brown
Brené Brown is an expert on vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame. In this book, she shares 10 guide posts for Wholehearted living, a place where we can find our worthiness. The subtitle is Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are. When we live life, we often have narratives projected on to us, truths that are not our own, and some that are. As we learn to accept the truth of who we are today, a wholeness without judgement, we can live a more authentic and fulfilling life.
Potential (traditionally The Fool) is the first card in the Tarot system. If the tarot is a story, this is the beginning where anything is possible. We aren’t bogged down by our worries — our worries if we are not enough, if we fail, if we put ourselves out there and are not received. Potential has the sun shining upon our goddess as she appears to walk almost off the cliff. When this card presents, instead of wondering about the fall, focus on your ability to fly. The potential of all that you are, were, and can be. You are always able to grow, the journey of your past self having brought you here. Embrace yourself, you beautiful human, and the journey ahead will be full of magic.
