I’m going to be using adjectives that I try not to over use: Fantastic, amazing, spectacular, inspiring, fabulous. I try to save them for when it really counts. This is one of those times. Simply put, MORE MAGAZINE’S REINVENTION CONVENTION was one of the most fantastic, amazing, spectacular, inspiring, fabulous events I’ve experienced. DON’T MISS THE NEXT ONE. Check out the speakers. All I can say is wow. Thank you, More, for trusting me to be one of your messengers. And now a word from the fantastic, amazing, spectacular, inspiring, fabulous Lee Woodruff… (who also happens to be my friend and one of my book’s biggest champions.)
You gotta love an MC who talks about her dirty underwear! Literally. Being on the road as a travelling author, clean underwear is not just a luxury, but a small miracle. Her book PERFECTLY IMPERFECT is a MUST READ!
Ever have a day that feels like magic? Where everybody’s smiling and shaking hands and being kind to each other and thrilled to be exactly where they are? And there are supermodels and movie stars and TV celebrities and fabulously successful women all around you just being themselves– being normal (whatever that means)– being someone you could sit with in your pj’s and share a pizza and your current crush and maybe have a thumb war…only you’re doing it all grown up in great clothes and an hour of hair and make-up? Well, I got to have a day like that a few weeks ago and I am still under its spell. Thank you MORE MAGAZINE for putting together such an INSPIRING day. We use the word inspiring a lot in our current society. You could have written the definition. And thank you for inviting me to speak. And for making it barely impossible for me to feel good after applying my own make-up and doing my own hair.
More Magazine’s executive editor, the intuitive and insightful Judy Coyne moderates while Mel Robbins (author, radio celebrity, and life coach), and I cover the topic Getting What You Want by Getting Out of Your Own Way. The fabulous Rita Wilson was in the front row, center. What an honor! (More on Rita in my next blog post.)
I felt like I was living Katie Perry’s lyrics, baby you’re a firework sharing the stage with Mel Robbins. I thought I had a lot of energy! Her book STOP SAYING YOU’RE FINE will change the way you think and relate with the world.
Remind me not to pose with a super model again.
Christy Turlington Burns is not only beautiful on the outside, but inside too. She has learned the hard way that beauty cannot guard you against health issues, and has taken her birth hemorrhage experience to the screen in her directorial debut: NO WOMAN NO CRY. I was in tears. We think about the babies, but who thinks about the mothers?
Sold out book signing! Thanks to all of you who braved that line!
