Fear, setbacks and loss are a part of life, but they don’t need to be what defines your life. What does it mean to live with this perspective? How can experiencing the very worst bring out the best in you? Without ever “moving on” or “getting over it,” how can you live better — and love better — right now?
A reluctant grief expert and “notable widow” (her words), Nora McInerny miscarried her second baby, lost her dad to cancer and also lost her husband, Aaron, to a brain tumor all within six hellish weeks in 2014. Nora has used her creative energies, humor and interviewing skills toward the exploration of all things terrible, leading a new cultural conversation on emotional honesty and empathy.
