Why We Hate the Status Quo | Melody Warnick | TEDxFargo

Melody Warnick, the ​author of “This Is Where You Belong,” struggles with restlessness — the periodic desire to start over somewhere, anywhere, else. In this entertaining talk, she shares how a simple cure can help you put down roots and become happier where you already are. After 13 years of chronic moving, Melody Warnick managed to fall madly in love with her adopted hometown of Blacksburg, Virginia, then wrote a book about how other people could do the same. “This Is Where You Belong: Finding Home Wherever You Are” (Viking, 2016) helps Movers and Stayers alike rethink the value of their community and was described by Richard Florida as “an important book for so many people who are choosing their place to live.” This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
