• On GTU Hour 2 this morning – Actress Reese Witherspoon could have a second act as a life coach. “Someone just asked me the best piece of advice for young people or for anybody, honestly,” Witherspoon began an Instagram video last week. “It’s really surprising how hard it is but the sooner you figure out that other people’s opinions of you are never your business, and it literally doesn’t matter what they think of you, you become free. Totally free.” “So true. So true,” Witherspoon’s “Legally Blonde” costar Selma Blair wrote in the comments. Do you agree?
  • Plus, whether your mother-in-law is a constant complainer, your boss is an angry cynic or your friend is a pessimistic downer, dealing with toxic people can sometimes be unavoidable. But the way you respond to them is your choice. If you’re not careful, toxic people can negatively influence the way you think, feel, and behave. They can introduce unnecessary stress into your life and cause chaos that will drag you down. Here are telltale signs of a toxic relationship that’s getting the best of you: You talk about them a lot – You lose your temper – Your self-esteem dwindles. So what do you do next?

  • And sage parenting advice from Glennon Doyle this morning: “This is my philosophy with all things children now. All you have to do is finish strong,” Doyle said in a video post. I loved this advice then, and I love it still now because it feels like self-compassion. I remembered it last night when, after a day with my younger son that involved more tears and nagging than I’d like, we salvaged the day with a big bedtime hug and a chat about the relative merits of dump trucks versus forklifts. After a pretty blah parenting day, it was the reset we both needed. Of course, Doyle isn’t the only one preaching the power of ending the evening on a high note. Here’s why the last thing you say at night can be so powerful — and how to work on “finishing strong” with your kiddo. So how do you finish strong? Nicea tells us about the power of just fifteen minutes of positivity before bed.
