Two thumbs up from me for Brené Brown's new book Rising Strong! ... I love her ability to take common experiences and frame them in a very relatable way that helps the reader understand that this lady gets it.

Worry is useless
Don't worry about anything
Pray about everything instead of worrying about it, and you'll feel the peace you were meant to experience.
I've had a huge loss. My husband was my love, my life, my companion, my friend, and we had planned to spend the rest of our lives together. Without him, I think "What the heck do I do now?"
I am afraid to start over. But I have to get past that; to realize that he wouldn't want me to remain stagnant and wallow, but rather to identify what it is that I really want, then grab the bull by the horns and go for it. I can hear him in the back of my mind saying "What's stopping you?"
The first thing, I guess, is figuring out how I want the rest of my life to be. What I want to achieve, experience, feel, and contribute. Only then can I come up with a game plan. How do I do this? No idea, but I have no doubt I will figure it out in time with patience, prayer, introspection, and action.
