TEDxMileZero - Robin Farr - Beauty in the Breakdown: The Benefits of Brutal Honesty

When Robin Farr was 38 weeks pregnant with a breech baby and low amniotic fluid that indicated a need for a fairly quick c-section, the doctor asked her and her husband a question: "Would you like to have this baby today or tomorrow?" Not prepared to be whisked to the OR that instant, they chose "tomorrow". Their son Connor was born on June 13, 2008, which happened to be a Friday. Friday the 13th. And thus began her journey into motherhood. That journey included a struggle with undiagnosed postpartum depression that took three years to recover from. That experience, and a lifelong habit of finding inspiration in even the bad things that happen to her, led her to a new motto: "Live the life you're meant to." She's now working on doing just that. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
