DARING GREATLY:  How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead
by Dr. Brene Brown

This book has a powerful message about vulnerability, courage and being SEEN.  By putting ourselves "out there" we create what Dr. Brown calls a "Wholehearted" life - a life of compassion and connection.

From the overview:

Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable or to dare greatly.  Based on twelve years of pioneering research, Dr. Brene Brown dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.  

Brown explains how vulnerability is both the core of difficult emotions like fear, grief, and disappointment, and the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, empathy, innovation, and creativity.  She writes: "When we shut ourselves off from vulnerability, we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives."
