This months book, "Daring Greatly" has been sitting on my book shelf for a few months now and so I'm happy that the group selected it for the September book of the month. on my list for quite some time now, so I'm really excited to finally read this one and that it was chosen for the book club pick. Typically we pick books that deal with other peoples courageous travels and personal adventure stories and tales, but this month we went a little bit of a different direction. What about our own adventure stories? What can we do to develop ourselves to be more courageous and brave and loving toward ourselves and our flaws and cultivate our dreams? Daring Greatly talks all about vulnerability and courage, and I'm excited to dig in!

If you're new to the book club and want to vote on our next book club selection, the vote takes place each month by the book club members on our Facebook group

From the Amazon description of the book: 

Daring Greatly is not about winning or losing. It’s about courage. In a world where “never enough” dominates and feeling afraid has become second nature, vulnerability is subversive. Uncomfortable. It’s even a little dangerous at times. And, without question, putting ourselves out there means there’s a far greater risk of getting criticized or feeling hurt. But when we step back and examine our lives, we will find that nothing is as uncomfortable, dangerous, and hurtful as standing on the outside of our lives looking in and wondering what it would be like if we had the courage to step into the arena—whether it’s a new relationship, an important meeting, the creative process, or a difficult family conversation. Daring Greatly is a practice and a powerful new vision for letting ourselves be seen.
