The Greatest Thing A Person Can Do For Themselves

…is listen to The Power of Vulnerability: Teachings on Authenticity, Connection, and Courage by Brene Brown.

I just finished listening to it this evening.

I have read a lot (see my Reading list in the top menu). And I have watched a lot of movies (almost 1,300).

And I say without reservation that this audiobook is the best thing a person can do for themselves.
