One of my favorite writing books is Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott. And now this is one of my favorite Ted Talks. It’s funny and sad, and very poignant.
#2 is funny… but absolutely true. #3 is great. And I love: “try not to compare your insides to other people’s outsides.” That’s so great.
And then comes my favorite line of the entire Ted Talk.
Finally, I wouldn’t call #11 a “truth” but I accept that it is her truth. And I love her advice to look up. And I like how she wraps-up talking about death and quoting Leonard Cohen.
