10th anniversary note / from Bren�e -- Preface -- Introduction: Wholehearted living -- Courage, compassion, and connection: the gifts of imperfection -- Exploring the power of love, belonging, and being enough -- The things that get in the way -- Final thoughts.
Brown explores the psychology of releasing our definitions of an 'imperfect' life and embracing living authentically. In a world where insults, criticisms, and fears are spread too generously alongside messages of unrealistic beauty, attainment, and expectation, she provides ten 'guideposts' that can help anyone establish a practice for a life of honest beauty-- a perfectly imperfect life.
