Monday Must-Haves.

Happy Monday! Coffee and Connection with my Mama💕[[[[
Hi Friends~ Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and are ready to embrace a new week!

Academic Tidbits…//

*I am currently working on my thesis for my Bachelors degree and am building my project upon the theory of Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Need. My project begs the question, ‘What is it that we all really need in life?’. My research has concluded that the majority of society is craving the same thing and yet we keep moving further and further away from it. This one thing stands to be meaningful, vulnerable connection.

*Social Scientist, Brene Brown found in her research on the human condition, that vulnerable connection gives purpose and meaning to life. Only those who have a strong sense of love and belongingness, have the potential to cultivate this vulnerable connection.

*In a world that screams the need to perfect the imperfect, make certain that which is uncertain, and numb that which fails to meet the expectations placed on us, how do we embrace vulnerable connection?

We must let ourselves be seen. We must love with our whole hearts, with no guarantee. We must practice GRATITUDE and JOY and believe that we are enough. We have to stop screaming and start listening.
