I watched two BrenÃ© Brown TED talks last night. My body tingled; my legs went cold though covered in a blanket and my heart starting thunking loudly. After a spirited conversation with myself, I got off the couch, put on my flip flops and went for a walk. (And my feet now have blisters because I no longer have flip flop calluses.)
Two geese flew over my head while I flip flopped down the sidewalk. I was transfixed by deer across the street and so busy mindfully breathing the air that I didnâ€™t notice the geese until their butts swooshed over me. Thank goodness they didnâ€™t poop on me! So aware in some ways and so oblivious in others.
Here are the two TED talks I watched — I highly recommend watching them. They were over before I knew it and I wanted more.
