Everything Happens with Kate Bowler - December 27, 2022 - 53:57

As we approach the New Year, we might need a minute to look backward. What even happened this year? Who was I? What went well? What didn't? Before we start making those New Year’s Resolutions, maybe we could have a second of honesty together. This week is about celebrating the fact that alongside some of our painful, horrifying moments, we did experience moments of levity and joy and pure delight. In our personal lives, in our inner circle, during our 9-5s, and one real Zinger bonus round that really takes the cake. In this bonus crossover episode, Kate and Kelly Corrigan discuss: Their own personal happies, including the joy of birthdays as a reset button How being reabsorbed into other people’s stories and problems makes us feel less alone The satisfaction that comes from totally immersing yourself in learning, what Kelly refers to as intellectual humility ***Looking for the transcript or show notes?
