"We love your work. Talk about whatever makes you feel awesome. Do your thing. We're grateful to spend the day with you." That's from Brene Brown's book Daring Greatly, and it's what the TED people told her when they invited her to do a talk and she didn't know what they wanted. While I have my own issues with her message, I found those specific words comforting and encouraging. I need to hear them from time to time, and find them a helpful way to start the day.
