Some of you will remember “Must See TV”, the NBC Thursday night lineup from the 90s. (And with shows like Seinfeld, Wings, and Friends, it usually was “must see” for me.) Since NBC’s not using the slogan anymore, I’m appropriating and modernizing it to use for the occasional You Tube video recommendation. I hope they don’t mind.
In my Blissdom recap a few weeks ago, I mentioned that Dr. Brené Brown, author of The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are, delivered a fascinating keynote address. Based on years of intensive research, she has drawn some profound theories surrounding connection, vulnerability, shame, and worthiness–all issues many of us have discussed on our blogs.
At some point during the address, I jotted a note that she’d done a TEDx talk, but I only got around to watching it this week. WOW! I’m sorry I didn’t do it sooner, both for my personal benefit and for the opportunity to share the link with you. It’s only ~20 minutes long, and I promise you it’s well worth the investment of your time.
As luck would have it, I found another TEDx talk that is slightly redundant but also contains some new material. It’s titled “The Price of Invulnerability” and is about 15 minutes long.
Both of these videos qualify as “Must See YT”, in my opinion. If you watch them, I hope you enjoy them half as much as I did!
Side Note: I spent the morning with my elders and the afternoon on the phone with a particular
bunch of liars health insurance provider and am now wiped out. I promise to catch up on emails and blog reading tomorrow. That and a gym visit are the only two things on my “must do” agenda!
