Description

In a talk that's by turns heartbreaking and hilarious, writer and podcaster Nora McInerny shares her hard-earned wisdom about life and death. Her candid approach to something that will, let's face it, affect us all, is as liberating as it is gut-wrenching. Most powerfully, she encourages us to shift how we approach grief. "A grieving person is going to laugh again and smile again," she says. "They're going to move forward. But that doesn't mean that they've moved on."

Nora is an incredible human. If only more people were as open and honest as she is about such a hard topic.

TY TY. very funny & insightful way to look are tough subjects. I just said to my dad yesterday that I am going to bring humor to tough & taboo topics, so people can actually see & deal w/ the topics w/ more ease. I also explained to a group a few months ago when someone said you should listen to everyone's story. I believe not everyone is in a place to handle everything nor to listen to everything.
