It seems ridiculous to celebrate anything these days. And yet, we know from all the neuroscience research that celebrating is quite important for our brains. Which means it’s important for our lives.

Melanie’s inspiration for this episode was a big-little thing that recently happened to her.

Lots of good neuroscience, beautiful blessings from beloved Mirabai Starr, deep writings from The New York Times bestseller Learning to Walk in the Dark, by Barbara Brown Taylor.

Plus! Poems from David Whyte and John O’Donohue and Maya Angelou and Dr. Martin Luther King, and some of Melanie’s book proposal writing on collective trauma.

It’s a packed show, folks. Listen in, won’t you?
