Ted talks. Ideas worth spreading. I love Ted Talks. One of my favorite ways to spend an evening home alone. Since there are so many Ted talks, here are 5 of my favorite Ted talks:

Amy Purdy – Living Beyond Limits

One of the first TED talks I ever saw!

“It’s believing in our dreams and facing our fears head on that allows us to live our lives beyond our limits.”

Brené Brown: The power of vulnerability

Susan Cain – The power of introverts

I’m an introvert and there is no reason to not feel good about that fact!

Kelly McGonigal: How to make stress your best friend.

We all have stress sometimes, so we better turn it into something good.

Shonda Rhimes: My year of saying yes to everything

The mastermind behind my favorite TV show Grey’s Anatomy. The year I got to know Shonda Rhimes a bit better.
