Rediscover Wonder...by Brian McDermott on 07/24/11
This is my all-time favorite Ted Talk video...
If you watch only the first 4 minutes -- a spoken-word poem by Sarah Kay entitled "If I should Ever Have a Daughter" -- I think you'll come away inspired to find a reason to keep saying "thank you" to life no matter how bad the day.
If you stick with her for the full 18 minutes... Well, I come away reminded of how important it is to say, "I can," and how powerful it can be to say, "I will continue," and how rewarding and influential it can be to infuse our work and lives with the stories that are uniquely ours, and to raise our voices, no matter how small, because those are the gifts with which we are most likely to help make the world a better place.
