Hello Andrea, not long ago I signed up to receive your emails. I have enjoyed them so much. I see the
Summer Read book you are currently recommending is By Brene Brown, she is an amazing writer and has so
much knowledge regarding just being yourself and embrace who you are. I’m soon retiring (July 2nd is my last day) and I will miss your emails immensely. I have one of Brene Brown’s books which is Daring Greatly and her book certainly has inspired me to just be myself and as she says We are good enough just the way we are. Sincerely, Elaine Messner
Hi Elaine, Thanks for your note. Congratulations on your retirement! What a big milestone.
I hope you are planning on joining the Summer Read. We have a good group of folks. If you haven’t plugged into the group, you can “search” Facebook for “Resiliency Revitalizer Book Group” and join there. Please feel free to contact me with your home email address and I will send you the Revitalizer each time it is published. You can also read them here on the website, or on the Resiliency: The Travels of the Barefoot Soul FB page.
You are so right: We are good enough just the way we are. Thank you for that reminder.
