I adore Brene Brown. If you don't know her or her work, she is a lecturer, author of several amazingly informative and interesting books (Daring Greatly is my personal favorite), a US American professor, and also hosts a great podcast called Unlocking Us that I listen to all the time for inspiration and guidance. At the end of her interviews with various types of people from all walks of life, she asks a series of rapid-fire questions that I have always thought I would love to answer myself. Ask yourself these questions, along with your family and friends some time and you just might find yourself in a deep dive of great conversation, plus insight into yourself and each are my answers...
