Daring to set boundaries is about having the courage to love ourselves, even when we risk disappointing others.


You're imperfect, and you're wired for struggle, but you are worthy of love and belonging.


Normally, when someone we love is turning away from a struggle, we self-protect by also turning away. That's definitely my first response. I think change is more likely to happen if both partners have common language and a shared lens to see problems.


Vulnerability is not weakness. And that myth is profoundly dangerous.


I'm like a recovering perfectionist. For me it's one day at a time.


The truth is: Belonging starts with self-acceptance. Your level of belonging, in fact, can never be greater than your level of self-acceptance, because believing that you're enough is what gives you the courage to be authentic, vulnerable and imperfect.


For me, the opposite of scarcity is not abundance. It's enough. I'm enough. My kids are enough.


To me, a leader is someone who holds her- or himself accountable for finding potential in people and processes. And so what I think is really important is sustainability.


When you stop caring what people think, you lose your capacity for connection. When you're defined by it, you lose our capacity for vulnerability.


I spent a lot of years trying to outrun or outsmart vulnerability by making things certain and definite, black and white, good and bad. My inability to lean into the discomfort of vulnerability limited the fullness of those important experiences that are wrought with uncertainty: Love, belonging, trust, joy, and creativity to name a few.


It's hard to practice compassion when we're struggling with our authenticity or when our own worthiness is off-balance.


The difficult thing is that vulnerability is the first thing I look for in you and the last thing I'm willing to show you. In you, it's courage and daring. In me, it's weakness.


As unique as we all are, an awful lot of us want the same things. We want to shake up our current less-than-fulfilling lives. We want to be happier, more loving, forgiving and connected with the people around us.


Perfectionism is not the same thing as striving to be our best. Perfectionism is not about healthy achievement and growth; it's a shield.


There is no innovation and creativity without failure. Period.


When you get to a place where you understand that love and belonging, your worthiness, is a birthright and not something you have to earn, anything is possible.


A deep sense of love and belonging is an irreducible need of all people. We are biologically, cognitively, physically, and spiritually wired to love, to be loved, and to belong. When those needs are not met, we don't function as we were meant to. We break. We fall apart. We numb. We ache. We hurt others. We get sick.


Social media has given us this idea that we should all have a posse of friends when in reality, if we have one or two really good friends, we are lucky.


Vulnerability is about showing up and being seen. It's tough to do that when we're terrified about what people might see or think.


I don't have to chase extraordinary moments to find happiness - it's right in front of me if I'm paying attention and practicing gratitude.
