- For years I've been dreaming about bringing together teachings from the research, art, and giving. This is the year the dream comes true! The Marble Jar (@shopthemarblejar) is an online store that offers meaningful products that reflect our mission to "make the world a braver place." Explore the store at the link in my bio, and swipe to view more pictures on this post! . Art has played a central role in my life. In a world where it's hard to show up and be brave, I need the daily reminders of what's important to me. Whether it's my kids' finger-painting, pictures from my phone, or a piece of pottery, you can't spell WHOLEHEARTED without A-R-T.

- We're offering a download every month on our new website. The quote for October is STILL hard for me. When you sign up to be brave you know it means flipping right over those handlebars sometimes. . Maybe what comes with practice is knowing that I'll get back up and that my skinned knee and bruised heart will heal. And, that there are a whole bunch of us that just keep getting back on that bike! . You can download it from brenebrown.com (just scroll to the bottom of the home page). Link in profile. ❤️ . And, we'd love your feedback on the new site!

- 1. Prayer + civic action are not mutually exclusive. Join me in both. 2. Step away from social media coverage and toward real people for support, action, conversation, and being with each other in collective pain. Keep informed, but don't stay glued. Our secondary trauma will not make us better helpers - it shuts us down and sends us into self-protection and blame-finding. 3. Adding this for our kids: All we can do is acknowledge the pain and fear, create space to talk about what's happening in an age-appropriate way, and own our own vulnerability and uncertainty. Also important to put down some guidelines for watching and talking about it. We want them to ask us and depend on our answers, not those of their peers. And, of course, love them as hard as we can. 4. And this news consuming advice from WNYC.

- When I first read this quote, I was confused and a little frustrated. Maya Angelou has always been a constant inspiration and guiding influence in my life. Her assertion that “belonging nowhere was freedom” went against everything I knew about belonging from both my research and personal experience. I’m hosting an Instagram Live to discuss Chapters 1 and 2 of #BravingTheWilderness—and why Maya was right (of course)—tomorrow, September 14th, at 6:30pm ET. . Post your questions in the comments below. See you there! . EDIT: I'll be live-streaming on Instagram AND Facebook. Jump on the platform you're most comfortable with.

- T- 5 days until #BravingTheWilderness hits the shelves! Every page of this book challenged me in unexpected ways. At some point my editor Ben laughed and said, “Maybe we should call it ‘How to piss off everyone in 150 pages.‘” I laughed. Kinda. . Braving The Wilderness is a call to courage. A call to move closer to each other, because people are hard to hate close up. A call to speak truth to bullshit. But be civil. And to hold hands. With strangers. . While we are still in major heartbreak here in Houston, I’ve been so blown away by the kindness of strangers. . There’s a section in the new book that talks about “A Ministry of Presence” - it so perfectly describes what we’re seeing here right now. . Click the link in my bio to read that excerpt and check out the new brenebrown.com. . Also, I’m taking off for a crazy book tour next week (cue Willie Nelson’s “On the Road Again). Pre-order on Amazon and join us for Q&As from the road. If you order now, it normally delivers the next day!

- I see London. I see France. Y’all kicked ass on the underpants. . It’s been three days since I reached out and asked for help getting underwear to the hurricane victims. We’re going to give you a full report next week but here’s what I want you to know right this minute: . This morning 20,000 pairs of underwear were dropped off at NRG where @BakerRipley is housing thousands of evacuees. . This first picture is Amy Weiss who is the executive director of @UndiesForEveryone. Just so you know, her house had over four feet of water in it. Her shirt says it all: Spread Good. . The very handsome guys doing the delivery today are Steve (my husband) and Frankie (my brother-in-law). . They said the volunteers actually cheered when they showed up with the underwear. There is no laundry and people are desperate to be clean and feel clean! . Full report on your donations and how we’re spreading your underwear LOVE all the way down to South Texas on Wednesday. . As for me and my family, we made it through without any house damage. Now we’re knee-deep in underwear and I’m getting ready to launch the new book. After a 30 hour nap. . For now, just know that we’re SO deeply grateful. . Thanks to @leigh.standley for the great sketch and Ted Barrall for helping deliver and taking pics!

- Quick update: Our water is down 5 feet. Moving neighbors and helping where we can. Not sure when it’s going to be over but feeling more hopeful. I was sporting a headlamp last night. It’s my new look. . 1. Thank you for the well wishes and prayers. Maybe it’s weird, but it really, really mattered. Thanks for lifting my spirits. . 2. Thank you for not judging. We were advised to stay here - we weren’t reckless. Judgement and scolding about not evacuating are the opposite of empathy and helpful. It’s painful. . It’s also how people make themselves feel better when terrible shit happens: “I would have done something different. That will never be me.” . I pray to God you’re right - I hope you never watch your elderly neighbor stand waist-high in water and sob as their house gets destroyed. I hope this never happens to you. But if it does, I hope people don’t lead with judgment. . 3. And a huge thank for not diminishing the request for prayer and thoughts. I’m a very involved citizen and I don’t believe prayer and civil action are mutually exclusive. You don’t have to denigrate one to support the other. My mother lost her house in Alison and her neighbor died in the process. I can tell you how every politician in this city and state thinks and votes on the environment and over-development (the silent killer - more concrete, less green). And, I pray. On my knees. . 4. Thank you to everyone who lifted someone up in your own way and/or gave $5 or $50 to whatever org you support that will help the people here who need it. My big request is don’t forget about the people here. I did a Flood Relief fundraiser in Baton Rouge a few months ago. It was six months after the storm. That’s when the depression and grief can set in. The adrenaline is depleted and the world has moved on. . Again, thank you to this big, messy hearted community. We need each other in ways we don’t even understand.

- This is from my front door. That is an 8 ft stop sign. Steve is back from rescuing a family across the street in a kayak that was in our garage. We have a high porch and only have an hour until there's water in our house. Many of our neighbors have 5-7 feet in their houses. No power. Harvey has just started for some of us. Our family has the resources to survive this. Many here will be devastated for years. Keep us in your prayers and support how and where you can. Off to have a good cry then put the generator OUTSIDE (not in the garage) and get to work. Link to Red Cross donation page in my bio.

- Retweeting and sharing a critical call to courage from Senator Cory Gardner (R-Colorado). Courage over comfort. . I'm not advocating for/against Gardner. I'm advocating for a line that we refuse to cross regardless of our political agenda. A line that is etched in human dignity. I want to see politicians and people who have the courage to walk out of their ideological bunkers and echo chambers when that line is crossed. . I doubt Gardner and I would see eye to eye on many issues, but I'm not afraid to support his stance on this issue if it is the right one. A dismissal of everything someone does or says because s/he is on the opposing side of other issues, is exactly what landed us here.
