April 26, 2017: Option B

Knowing I am not alone in the wake of my twin Brandon’s passing has provided tremendous comfort over these past 3 months. I am grateful for the love and support I’ve received from so many directions.

Most recently this support came from attending a 92Y talk with Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant on their new book, Option B. As an admirer of both Sheryl and Adam, I had been planning on attending this talk even before my “B” passed away. Through listening to Sheryl open up about her personal loss of her husband Dave in person and in the amazing book, her words have provided a deeper level of empowerment and sense of comfort in knowing I am not alone.

I highly recommend the book to anyone facing their own form of adversity or helping someone else face his or her own adversity, and additionally taking a look at the amazing community Sheryl and Adam are building at OptionB.org. This organization is dedicated to helping people build resilience through connecting with others.

Thank you Sheryl and Adam for igniting an important conversation that all too often goes unspoken.
