inspirational, and sometimes they just hit you right where you need them to Gmorning, Gnight Little Pep Talks for Me You is a compilation of those tweets of encouragement, accompanied by terrific illustrations from Jonny Sun And as Miranda notes in the introduction I don t have a book of quotationsOr wisdom I pull from the shelf Most often the greetings I wish youAre the greetings I wish for myself.So if I write relax, then I mnervous,Or if I write cheer up, then I m blue,I m writing what I wish somebody would say,Then switching the pronoun to you I so enjoyed this book, and flew through it pretty quickly I found myself smiling, nodding my head, even feeling a little emotional at times, because Miranda was saying things that really resonated for me Sun s illustrations are cute without being too precious, literal at times while abstract at others.Here s one set of pep talks I loved Good morning.Courage.Even when the panic s at the back of your throat, courage.Let s go.Good night.Courage.Even when fear is at the foot of your bed, courage.Let s go.This book will make such a great gift, and although I ve read it cover to cover in a matter of less than an hour , I m thinking of using it as a book of daily affirmations There are certainly days I can use a little extra encouragement I hope this makes you feel as good as it made me Thanks, Lin Manuel and Jonny See

suicide The news that Anthony Bourdain had taken his own life came when I was at my own emotional low point I was in a job that I had loved and fought for, but was working for a boss who was destroying my soul Before long, it grew into the single worst depressive episode of my life I often woke up at 2 in the morning filled with dread, thinking to myself, I would rather die than get out of bed and go to work I didn t have intent or a plan to end my life, but the fact that this thought was so consistently lodged in my brain was an incredibly difficult way to go through life.And so it came to be that I was home alone one Friday, lying on the couch and scrolling through Twitter tributes when I realized that Anthony Bourdain and I shared the same birthday And that s when I cracked.This might seem like a bit of an odd trigger, but it immediately brought to mind a scene from one of my all time favorite shows, The West Wing In the second season episode Noel, a military pilot steals a plane and deliberately crashes into the side of a mountain the character Josh realizes that he and the pilot shared the same birthday and that becomes one of several things that leads him toward a breakdown and into a session with a therapist who diagnoses him with PTSD There s a moment near the end of the session when the therapist asks Josh, Can you honestly tell me that when the pilot committed suicidethat you didn t wonder if you were suicidal too Josh responds, I didn t wonder that with this unbelievably haunted look on his face It s left relatively ambiguous, but I always took his response not as a denial but as a way of saying, I didn t have to wonder because I knew it I d been so depressed that remembering that one line I didn t wonder that hit me so fucking hard It s probably the closest I ve ever come to being legitimately suicidal I didn t make an attempt, I didn t consider how I would do it or anything like that, but I started down this terrible spiral of thoughts like, Maybe I really should just die If Anthony Bourdain didn t see any hope that it would get better, why should I And none of my usual methods was helping me turn those thoughts off, so I just laid on the couch and cried, hopelessly, for hours That s the ugly frame of mind I was in when I came across Lin s tweet that read Gmorning.YOU ARE SO LOVED AND WE LIKE HAVING YOU AROUND ties one end of this sentence to your heart, the other end to everyone who loves you, even the ones you haven t heard from in a while checks knots THERE STAY PUT YOU.That tweet stopped me cold It stopped the spiraling almost immediately It helped me remember how that scene from The West Wing ended not just the famous Guy Falls in a Hole speech, but the moment that the therapist tells Josh Because we get better It took twomonths for me to quit my job and leave behind the most toxic boss in the world, but I bought myself a bracelet stamped with the phrase, Because we get better and I wear it every day And I am getting better, a little bit each day I bought this book specifically because of that tweet, but it s filled with so many other, wonderful gems Affirmations that you can overcome fear, that you can follow your dreams, but also that your life is meaningful It s a really precious thing and I can t imagine anyone not finding something inspiring, helpful, or even life saving among these pages I m holding off on rating this because I listened to it on audio and didn t get to see any of Jonny s drawings, which I expect will be integral to the book But just for the listening experience of Lin narrating this, his soothing voice, how short it was, how personalized the advice and kind words were in his lovely voice, I adored it I listened to this in 45 minutes as I was lying in bed and playing Animal Crossing before going to sleep, and it made me smile and tear up and totally relax I m I m holding off on rating this because I listened to it on audio and didn t get to see any of

This was lovely to read, I adore how Lin initially tweeted these just to be nice and cheer someone s day and it s gotten so bigger than that because of his well deserved fame.The illustrations were really cute and nice to see alongside the poetry.I borrowed this from the library so I m thinking of buying the actual book and re reading this a double page spread every day to hopefully keep me thinking throughout the day positive thoughts.A sweet read 3.5 stars.
