Storyteller and social work researcher Brene Brown has just answered the central questions of my quest for goodness, or at least most of them. I have asked: What is goodness? What enables human beings to be good? What trips us up? What do we each need to do to become good? Brown says her six years of research shows that the answers are as simple — and hard — as each of us finding the courage to be authentic, vulnerable and love ourselves with our whole hearts. Oh, and she’s laugh-out-loud funny as she discusses her research findings. Listen for the bit about the muffin. You have to watch this TED Talk.
