Taylor Tippett, known as the flight attendant who leaves encouraging notes on passenger windows, shares how readers can find encouragement and meaning amid the brokenness of this world as they learn to recognize the magic of small moments, the power of everyday kindnesses, and the beauty found in every person's unique story.
A few years ago, Taylor Tippett was going through a rough season of life, feeling alone and discouraged, when she had a moment of clarity: everyone needs to know that they are not alone in the midst of their hardships. So, as she sat in the back of a Boeing 737 journaling, she wrote "be kind to yourself" and then hung it on one of the passenger windows. What started as a personal project to uplift others became a viral sensation as she started writing more notes--and #wordsfromthewindowseat was born.
Now, in her first book, Taylor shares stories of her travels, daily life, and interactions with people of all kinds, anchoring each chapter around a note she's left on a passenger's window. She offers her unique perspective on how kindness, courage, and being your authentic self can create opportunities to share a little everyday magic and encourage those around you. With charm, inspiration, and plenty of whimsy, Taylor reminds readers that even in the middle of so much darkness and brokenness, it's possible to make a difference and share your unique light.
