1. LOVE AND A LIFE KNOWING IT
Knowing you are loved gives you confidence; it makes you feel safe and cared for. In this business sometimes things can get crazy, but at the end of the day, I am reminded that I am valued and treasured beyond my job.

2. MY MOTHER AND FAMILY AND FRIENDS
They are responsible for me knowing love. They center me.

3. MUSIC
I love that through my music I can tell stories that connect to other people's stories. It allows us to not feel isolated in our experiences, good and bad.

4. INSPIRATION
I see it all around, in people's capacity to love, to hurt, in their strength and vulnerability, in accomplishment, in mistakes, in seeing them muddle through life with as much grace as possible.

5. LAUGHTER
If you can find the humor in a situation, you'll get through anything. I laugh at myself, I laugh at other people, and I have been known to laugh inappropriately!

6. SEAT WARMERS
I'm cold-natured, so I appreciate a warm seat on a cold morning. My car comes with seat warmers, and that's about the fanciest thing I've ever heard of!
