We Can Do Hard Things with Glennon Doyle

We Can Do Hard Things with Glennon Doyle

I?m Glennon Doyle, author of Untamed, the book that was released at the very start of the pandemic and became a lifeline for millions. I watched in awe from my home while this simple phrase from Untamed ? WE CAN DO HARD THINGS ? the mantra that saved my life twenty years ago, became a worldwide rally cry. Life is freaking hard. We are all doing hard things every day ? we love and lose; we forge and end friendships; battle addiction, illness, and loneliness; care for children and parents; struggle in our jobs, our marriages, our divorces; we try to set and hold boundaries ? and we fight for equality, purpose, joy, and peace right in the midst of all the hard. On We Can Do Hard Things, my wife Abby Wambach, my sister Amanda Doyle, and I do the only thing that has ever made life easier: We talk honestly about the hard. We laugh and cry and help each other carry the hard so we can all live a little bit lighter and braver, free-er, less alone.

Practical tips for guiding friends and family through your grief?and the permission slips to give yourself. 2. Why there is no such thing as grief etiquette?and how it?s less about what you say and more about what you do. 3. What it finally took for Marisa to surrender to the fact that she was not in control of her love or her grief.  4.

The life-changing perspective shift that Marisa gained from a conversation with Trayvon Martin?s mother Sybrina Fulton. About Marisa: Marisa Renee Lee is a called upon grief advocate, entrepreneur, and author of the upcoming book ?Grief is Love.?

She is no stranger to grief herself. In 2008, after a lengthy battle, she lost her mother to cancer. Shortly after, she lost her fertility, a pregnancy, and most recently, a cousin to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the end, Marisa found that if we can own and honor what we've lost, we can have a beautiful and joyful life amid grief. In addition to her work in the grief space, Lee is a former appointee in the Obama White House and CEO of Beacon Advisors, a mission-driven consulting firm primarily focused on racial equity. She is a rabble-rouser of social healing: former managing director of My Brother's Keeper Alliance; co-founder of the digital platform Supportal; and founder of The Pink Agenda, a national organization dedicated to raising money for breast cancer care, research, and awareness. Lee also regularly contributes to Glamour, Vogue, MSNBC, and CNN and serves as an expert for Ritual's wellbeing app. She is a Harvard graduate and an avid home cook. Marisa lives in the Washington DC area with her husband Matt, their newborn son Bennett, and their dog, Sadie.

Hannah Gadsby: How to Communicate Better

1. Why Hannah describes her later-in-life Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis as ?an exfoliation of shame.? 2. How neurodiversity affects Hannah?s relationships?and how she connects to the world through what?s ?interesting? instead of what?s ?important.? 3. Hannah?s revolutionary commitment to stop using self-deprecating humor about her body, sexuality, and gender?and why we might all consider the same commitment. 4. Why it?s easier for Hannah to share her personal stories ?in bulk? on stage instead of one-on-one. 5. What it takes for Hannah to prepare for conversations?like ours on We Can Do Hard Things. About Hannah: Tasmania?s own Hannah Gadsby stopped stand-up comedy in its tracks with her multi-award-winning show, Nanette. When it premiered on Netflix in 2018, it left audiences captivated by her blistering honesty and her singular ability to take them from rolling laughter to devastated silence. Its release and subsequent Emmy and Peabody wins took Nanette (and Hannah) to the world. Hannah?s difficult second album (which was also her eleventh solo show) was named Douglas after her dog. Hannah walked Douglas around the world, selling out the Royal Festival Hall in London, the Opera House in Sydney and the Kennedy Center in DC, a sit-down run in New York and shows across the US, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Douglas covered Hannah?s autism diagnosis, moving beyond the trauma at the centre of Nanette and instead letting the world see the view from Hannah?s brain ? one that sees the world differently but with breathtaking clarity. The show was an Emmy-nominated smash hit and is available throughout the world on Netflix, recorded in Los Angeles.  Hannah Gadsby?s ?overnight? success was more than ten years in the making, with her award-winning stand-up shows having been a fixture in festivals across Australia and the UK since 2009. She played a character called ?Hannah? on the TV series Please Like Me and has hosted multiple art documentaries, inspired by her comedy art lectures. In 2022, Hannah?s first book Ten Steps to Nanette: A Memoir Situation was published by Ballantine, an imprint of Penguin Random House, in the United States, Atlantic in the UK, and Allen & Unwin in Australia. Hannah has done plenty of other things over the course of more than a decade in comedy, but that will do for now.
