Give yourself permission to celebrate! 🎉 Brené Brown told Danielle LaPorte and me the coolest story about this. It was the night before she appeared on Oprah Winfrey. Brené went out to dinner with the producers in Chicago at Ralph Lauren. Walking back to the hotel afterward, her manager, Murdoch, asked, “Where are you Brené?”“I think we're on Michigan Avenue,” she answered. "No, where are you?" he said. "You were not even at dinner." Brené admitted that she was kind of floating above the scene, watching.“Man, you do not want to miss this,” said Murdoch. “This is going to be a big deal tomorrow. Get back in your body. What is it going to take?"For the first time, Brené wrote herself a permission slip. Afraid she was going to lose her mind when she saw Oprah, she knew that as a researcher, the academic side of her could be too stilted. So, creating a ritual allowed Brené to relax and have the time of her life. Their meeting became multiple shows and a significant connection was born—the stuff of dreams.To hear the whole story (because can’t you use a little more magic?), listen here: http://apple.co/3h1SjGU. And then please share what you’re rejoicing in right now. Let’s focus on the celebratory. I’ll start. I’m celebrating getting back into my writing after a much-needed winter break. It feels so good to dive in—snuggled on my couch for hours, the pups angling for space. The world will do what it does, and for today, I’m so grateful to be home, covered in dog hair, and back where I belong on the page. Write on! xo#TheBeautifulWritersLife ✍ #BreneBrown #DanielleLaPorte #bookmama #BeautifulWritersPodcast ... See MoreSee Less

Whoever was in charge of gathering fireworks should get on vaccines.
