Fireworks are smoky and sparkly
Plus: Wisdom from Katie O'Dunne, Kara Cutruzzula, Eyvette Jones Johnson, and Jennifer Lozano
This has been a week of fireworks: Big, bright moments of being in spaces with people I admire doing things that light me up. One of the highlights was accepting the Signal Award for Most Inspiring Podcast and hobnobbing with my podcast heroes. But, it was just as exciting to interview the extraordinary Katie O'Dunne. I asked Katie what she hoped Uplifters would take from her story and she said this: "You are amazing awesome. You are enough just the way you are. And your beautiful uniqueness makes the world a better place."
May we all remember this today as we wade through the smoke and the sparkles that come with the fireworks.

Read this super smart piece in The Wall Street Journal from one of my favorite humans,, that shows us how to turn envy into a superpower. It would make a perfect Uplifters episode, but alas, we had too much else to talk about when we interviewed each other this week for our shows. (Guess we will have to do it again sometime.)
Check out this profile in Ageist of Denise Pines, whom you’ll meet in our show in a couple of weeks.
