There are so many good TED TALKS.  

All you need is time and more time and a vantage point of curiosity.  

So many people, many of them amazing, brilliant, on the edge, pushing the envelope, all available via a simple Google search.  

I have a few favorite bookmarked. All are talks that I can listen to over and over and walk away with a smile in my heart or with gratitude knowing that some simple truths are never going to change and that if lived, practiced, observed, shared, considered, communicated, can indeed make the world a better place. 

My world, the world I share and live in with others, the world I want to get to know and learn about and from.  


Rethinking the Bucket List

How would you live every day as if it were your last?  Go skydiving? Attempt to ride a bull for 2.7 seconds? Kathleen Taylor has spent over 20 years as a counselor and community engagement facilitator for the dying and has found that in the last chapter of their lives, most people become their authentic selves. They become courageous - they change their minds, apologize, forgive... they find joy in the smallest moments. In this TEDx talk, Taylor urges us not to wait until we are at the end of our lives to find our true selves.
