    Perfection. Lin-Manuel Miranda is maybe the most phenomenal human being on the planet.

    A personal story about how one of Lin's tweets helped me:

    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.

    A personal story about how one of Lin's tweets helped me:

    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,

    . 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 suicide...that 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

    it."

    I'd been so depressed that remembering that one line --

    -- 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:

    That tweet stopped me cold. It stopped the spiraling almost immediately. It helped me remember how that scene from

    ended -- not just the famous

    , but the moment that the therapist tells Josh: "Because we get better." It took two more months 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

    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.

    Reading this book was like receiving a warm hug from a loved one that you haven’t seen in a very long time. Like coming home and feeling instantly safer. Like looking up at the sky and knowing that no matter what happens, you will be okay.

    I'm

    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:

    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!

    The world needs more books like these! Rooted in honesty- these pep talks are extremely likely to further brighten any day. It’s definitely a book I’ll be grabbing off the shelf when I need a pick me up.

  • Ashley *Hufflepuff Kitten*

    Read this in less than an hour. Remembered some of them from Twitter, which was fun. Awesome stuff.

  • Claudia Ramírez

    ¡Me gustó mucho!

    Creo que le faltó "algo" para las 5 estrellas, pero sin duda fue un libro precioso y que me hizo terminarlo con una gran sonrisa. ¡Además el audiolibro dura menos de una hora! Lo escuché todo seguido y me la pasé FELIZ. Obvio ayudó que fuera narrado por el mismo Lin-Manuel Miranda. Amo a ese hombre, soy afortunada de estar viva al mismo tiempo que él.

    I got my daughter Lin-Manuel Miranda's book of daily affirmation/pep tweets. I guess that is a thing. They are sweet. I stil don't regret spending her future college money on Tickets to Broadway's Hamilton in July, 2016. I thought that would finally quench my daughter's interest in Hamilton, L-MM, etc., but I neglected to plan for what a craf

    I got my daughter Lin-Manuel Miranda's book of daily affirmation/pep tweets. I guess that is a thing. They are sweet. I stil don't regret spending her future college money on Tickets to Broadway's Hamilton in July, 2016. I thought that would finally quench my daughter's interest in Hamilton, L-MM, etc., but I neglected to plan for what a crafty, creative, and charismatic little man in a rollneck, two-button sweater he is. Hamilton isn't a one-off. Miranda is going to be with us (all of us; my family, etc.) for a long, long, long time. That isn't a bad thing.

    The book is basically a series of AM/PM tweets Miranda sent over the course of 100+ days in 2017, etc. (there are 200 pages, so I'm guessing it wasn't exactly 100 days and some rougher tweets were left on the editor's floor). They are encouraging, positive, funny, and like a lot of Lin-Manuel's art -- open and personal. They aren't perfect and some seem a bit uncooked, but overall, I liked the idea, effort, and execution. Plus, it bought me a bit of cred with my 16 year-old daughter. So, totally worth the modest price of admission.

    Oh, and I almost forgot ... Jonny Sun's doodles were on every page and sometimes stole the whole damn show.
