#3 - Redefining Life After Loss with Jason Rosenthal
Jason B. Rosenthal is an author, Foundation Board Chair, public speaker and lawyer. He is also the subject of an article written by his wife, critically acclaimed author Amy Krouse Rosenthal, called “You May Want to Marry My Husband” which went viral and was read by millions of readers worldwide. Amy died of ovarian cancer just 10 days after it appeared in the Modern Love column of the New York Times.
Since then, Jason reevaluated his life’s work and now speaks publicly and writes about issues related to grief, loss, and resilience. Besides giving a Ted Talk that has garnered 1.8 million views, he wrote the children’s book “Dear Boy” with his daughter Paris. It debuted on the New York Times Bestseller list at #1. Jason’s recent project is a forthcoming memoir that will be published on March 17, 2020.
In this episode, we uncovered the emotional and mental challenges Jason faced over the last 4 years. We also dissected what it takes to write a children’s book, how to prepare for a Ted Talk, how a loss can lead you to a transformative path, how Jason practices mindfulness and meditation, and much, much, more.
