The Mary Marantz Show

Nov 2, 2021

Have you ever wanted life to be a little less, well, complicated and heavy?

The guest on the Mary Marantz Show today is telling us how to do just that.

Taylor Tippett, known as the flight attendant who leaves encouraging notes on passenger windows, shares how we can find encouragement and meaning amid the heaviness of this world.

A few years ago, Taylor was going through a rough season of life, and 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.

In her latest book, Words from the Window Seat: The Everyday Magic of Kindness, Courage, and Being True To Yourself, Taylor reminds us all that even in the middle of so much darkness and brokenness, it's possible to make a difference and share your unique light.

In this vulnerable conversation, Taylor transparently shares her personal journey, including:

  • Breaking off an unhealthy relationship, and acknowledging the unhealth of her own, personal patterns,
  • The trauma in her childhood and how she copes with that now, and
  • What it means to sit with your younger self to step into the fullness of who you were made to be

In this conversation with Mary and Taylor, you’ll also learn:

  • How to recognize the magic of small moments and the power of everyday kindness, 
  • The balance of getting better and but also not beating yourself up in the process, and
  • How to create a pep talk for yourself when you don’t ‘win’ - because it’s okay to be human


This uplifting conversation is here to bring a sense of lightness to your day, while also acknowledging the truth of what you’re going through. Friend, it’s not always easy, but we are so grateful you’re here.
