Words that brought me to tears and a word that is changing the way I think about life.

A few weeks ago, on my train ride to the airport in Frankfurt, I stumbled upon this talk on my Ted iPhone app. It was the only talk that had been downloaded & I have no idea how that happened. Technicalities aside, it was what I needed to hear, when I needed to hear it. It left me hiding tears at three in the morning, as the train raced its way through Hannover. I was in a cubby surrounded by four strangers trying to sleep, and there I was in tears. It was one of those moments where something changes, energy in the air shifts and all at once you are entirely different than the person you were seconds before. Maybe it was the talk, maybe the shift was imminent, or maybe claustrophobia and exhaustion finally made its presence known. I'm not sure, but I know that in those precious minutes, as I watched with my head against the window, something in me changed.

This was the talk I heard.

This is the word I am embracing whole-heartedly in 2012. 
and this week, before my hectic university life starts up again, i'd love to share some thoughts on the subject.
