***THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. Congratulations to Smldada!***
Have you heard about the over 600 members of Mama’s Comfort Camp and the judgement-free culture of support and belonging we’ve cultivated in our Facebook group? What started as a small group of online friends has blossomed into a once-in-a-lifetime virtual sisterhood. And we’re celebrating our one-year-anniversary!
Some very wise mamas have been helping us celebrate by contributing guest posts over at Mamas Comfort Camp, and we held a twitter party on March 10th. And later today, I’m teaching a short yoga lesson via vlog, so click on over!
And to celebrate here on Learned Happiness, I’m giving away one of my favorite books. If you know me, it’s no secret that Brene Brown’s books and research have changed my life. What I didn’t realize about my life was that I’m not so different from everyone else – that shame and insecurity plague every one of us. That we all just want to be seen, heard, and validated. And most of all, that when we change who we are to fit what we think others want, we rob ourselves of true happiness.
It’s because of Brene Brown’s books that I’ve become more confident, more courageous, and more authentic. Her TED Talk on shame pushed me to start blogging and opened up a whole world for me, where writing became therapy and readers became friends. On a good day, I now believe that I am worthy of love and belonging, no matter what I have accomplished or what has happened to me. Brene recently sat down with Oprah to share about her newest book, Daring Greatly. You’re going to love her.
So in the spirit of comforting mothers everywhere, I’m giving away a copy of I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn’t): Making the Journey from “What Will People Think?” to “I Am Enough.” All you have to do enter is leave a comment below, telling me how you take care of YOURSELF in these busy days when there is never enough time. If you struggle with this – then share how you WISH could could take care of yourself. A daily meditation? An occasional good book? A hot cup of coffee each morning? A deep breath at the end of a long day?
And please know, if you’re a Mama? You’re wanted in Mama’s Comfort Camp. Head on over to HERE to find out how to join. It’s easy and free!
Happy, Happy Birthday, Mama’s Comfort Camp! And congratulations to my friend Yael Saar! What an amazing baby you’ve created!
**legal stuff: Giveaway closes on March 20th at midnight, EST. Winner will be chosen using random.org and will be notified via email. Winner may choose a hard copy or Kindle version of the book. I am providing this book as a birthday gift to MCC. I was not compensated for my opinion – I really do just adore Brene Brown!**
CONGRATULATIONS TO SMLDADA, WINNER OF THE GIVEAWAY!
