Nora McInerny is a writer and the host of "Terrible, Thanks for Asking" podcast. She has lived through unspeakable heartache and has been sharing her experiences and insights during it all to help others cope with their own grief. She also founded Still Kickin, a non-profit that provides a financial grant to a different family each month to help them get through whatever tough thing they're dealing with.

What words of wisdom would you want to tell your younger self?
Stop over-plucking your eyebrows because those will take years to grow back! Also, things will get a lot harder. And then easier. And then harder again. Everything that you fear will eventually become things you have done, faced, accomplished, or overcome. 

What are you most proud of?
Honestly, the work Still Kickin does giving back to people going through the worst times in their lives. People showed up for my toddler son and I when my first husband died and I hope that even though I can't show up everywhere in person myself, Still Kickin can create that sense of showing up for more people.
