1. Be vulnerable in front of your friends. I'm not sure why this is still so hard for me. If you can't be vulnerable with your friends, then when?

2. Without fail, I cry about 5 minutes into every animated children's movie. I had forgotten this until we saw Finding Dory today.

3. "The crisis is over. Now it's just really, really sad." A good friend said this to me last summer and in the moment, her brilliance hit my like a ton of bricks. I've carried this with me since, and have shared it about a million times. I thought of it again today when we learned of a loved one's unexpected health challenges.
