AN INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

From New York Times bestselling author and beloved Today show co-host Hoda Kotb comes an inspiring collection of quotes that offer wisdom, courage, and hope—the perfect gift for Mother''s Day!


Several years ago, Today show co-host Hoda Kotb began posting a variety of quotes on her Instagram page. Some were penned by a favorite writer; others offered a dose of love or laughter. She thought the quotes were meaningful only to her, but soon a funny thing started happening—reactions poured in from thousands of people who were just as moved. The quotes weren''t only providing inspiration to Hoda, they were comforting and connecting people. So many of their comments read, “I really needed this today,” a phrase that inspired the book''s title.

In I Really Needed This Today, Hoda not only shares 365 sayings and quotes, she writes about the people and experiences that have pushed her to challenge boundaries, embrace change, and explore relationships to their fullest. Written with her signature wit and warmth, this book is the ideal companion to tuck beside your bed or to bring with you on-the-go to keep you motivated, recharged, and inspired each day.

Review

“With Hoda''s signature warmth and humor, this book collects her favorite quotes and pairs them with reflections on their meaning for a stocking stuffer any Today fan would love. It will find an immediate place on her bedside table, for a quick morning pick-me-up or a sweet sendoff to each day.” Good Housekeeping 

“Written with the same wit and warmth viewers see every morning on Today.” —Parade

January 1

What the new year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the new year.

-Vern McLellan

I''ll never forget what the year 2007 brought me: Kathie Lee Gifford. We met by happenstance at a restaurant in New York City, she agreed to fill in on the fourth hour of Today, and what followed was an eleven-year professional and personal relationship I truly treasure. One of the Today producers still likes to joke with me that I was "just wandering the halls of NBC" until she came up with the idea to invite Kathie Lee to cohost on the fourth hour. Pretty close to true. Kathie Lee absolutely set me on a path I''d never imagined for myself. I''m still amazed-and grateful-that meeting just one person can change your day, your year, your life. Thanks, Kath, and cheers to a new year!

January 2

You don''t have to move mountains. Simply fall in love with life. Be a tornado of happiness, gratitude, and acceptance. You will change the world just by being a warm, kind-hearted human being.

-Anita Krizzan

This is sooooo my mom. I swear she falls in love every day with something new she''s discovered-a restaurant, a book, someone she''s met. When she arrives for a visit on the train, I''ll meet her at Penn Station. "You''re not gonna believe who I met on the train!" And then she introduces me to her new friend, and we take pictures together. My mom is-and always has been-someone who is constantly soaking up whatever a new day has to offer.

January 3

And if I asked you to name all the things that you love, how long would it take for you to name yourself?-Sana Dabbas

I must admit, I''d never include myself out loud, but this is a great reminder to love ourselves and actually think it once in a while. After all, "I love me" sounds much better than "I''m not good enough," doesn''t it?

January 4

Your wings already exist. All you have to do is fly.

I think we''re born with wings. It just takes a while to test them, like when we first jump off a swing or pedal like crazy when a parent lets go of the bike. I just knew I was soaring when my dad launched me into the air from the pool, my little foot blasting up from his laced fingers. Try not to forget we''ve had wings since forever.

January 5

I am better off healed than I ever was unbroken.

-Beth Moore

After I had surgery to remove cancer in my breast, a kind nurse gently cleaned around my wounds as I stood in front of a mirror. There we were . . . me, her, and my broken reflection. Who in the world is ever going to want to see this or be near it? I was overwhelmed with fear and insecurity. Fast-forward to now, when, thankfully, I have a man in my life who loves me beyond and for my scars. Scars mean we''ve healed, that we''ve grown stronger. They are the very thing that cuts through the BS regarding what matters in life and who we want to share it with. Don''t you think it''s our scars that connect us?

January 6

Be careful who you pretend to be. You might forget who you are.

I think as we get older there''s less pretending. Year after year, our internal blueprints develop into a solid structure where we move about the world as ourselves. Still, I like this message-a reminder to keep it real.

January 7

Do not judge. You don''t know what storm I''ve asked her to walk through.-God

On the twentieth anniversary of the mass shooting at Columbine High School, I interviewed both survivors and people who had lost family members that day. I was absolutely blown away by the strength of spirit and love in the room. One mother, Beth Nimmo, lost her seventeen-year-old daughter, Rachel, but vowed to go one step further beyond just forgiving the gunmen for killing her daughter-she met with one of the shooters'' mother. "We both lost our children, but she had all the shame, the reproach," Beth said, "and the hate." Before the meeting, Beth asked God what to say to Sue Klebold when they sat before each other. "The Lord said, ask her who her son was before April 20, 1999." When the women met, Beth said the question touched Sue, who began crying. "She said, ''Nobody wants to know anything about my little boy that I raised,''" Beth recalled, through tears of her own. "I saw a mother''s heart."

January 8

So, if you are too tired to speak, sit next to me, because I, too, am fluent in silence.-R. Arnold

When my father died suddenly when I was in college, I walked around in a fog. I deliberately didn''t wear my glasses so everything remained out of focus; my earplugs stayed in, blaring music. One day in class, as a test was under way, I just snapped. I can''t do this. I''m outta here. I got up and grabbed my backpack. On my way out the door, the professor said, "If you don''t take this test, you''re going to fail." I couldn''t have cared less. My friend Peggy Fox, who was also taking the test, picked up her backpack and followed me out. When we sat down at a picnic table by the duck pond, Peggy didn''t say a word. Her mere presence was enough to comfort a small piece of my broken heart.

January 9

When you look into your mother''s eyes, you know that is the purest love you can find on this earth.

-Mitch Albom

For the last eleven years and counting, I''ve called my mom each day at 11:01 a.m., right after the fourth hour of Today when I get off the set. Every time, she sounds like it''s the first day she''s seen me do the show. "Oh, you were amazing!" she''ll say. "I just saw you and I cannot believe the purple dress!" Or, "Oh, Hodie, I can''t believe it! How do you seem so rested?" Now, usually you get the parental pom-poms in spurts . . . but not with her. They''re always shaking. After I adopted Hope, it wasn''t long before my mom started to ask me when I was getting off maternity leave. She missed seeing me every morning! When I popped back for one day during my time off to watch the Thomas Rhett concert in Rockefeller Plaza, she taped the show and texted me the clip. "Amaaazzzing!" she wrote with lots of a''s and z''s. C''mon! Only now, with daughters, do I have some idea about how my mom feels about my siblings-Hala and Adel-and me. My entire perspective on that depth of love has changed forever.

January 10

If you ever get caught sleeping at work, just slowly raise your head and say, "In Jesus''s name I pray."

I''m not promoting this, but I am laughing out loud at it.

January 11

Never be defined by your past. It was just a lesson, not a life sentence.

This is such a refreshing perspective on the past. It really shouldn''t be a ball and chain we lug around, should it? Maybe there''s something we can redefine today to feel more free.

January 12

Actually, you are good enough.

Tell yourself. Tell someone else. Spread the word.

January 13

The elimination diet: Remove anger, regret, resentment, guilt, blame, and worry. Then watch your health, and life, improve.-Charles F. Glassman

Just like sugar and salt, some of that emotional stuff can be addictive, can''t it? When we think about our New Year''s resolutions, maybe we should add cutting back on the negative self-talk, too.

January 14

Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.

-Voyage of the Dawn Treader

So true. I think when we fight through challenges, Destiny-in her own time-takes notice. Okay . . . I see that muscle of yours. I''ve got something special planned for you.

January 15

Talk about your blessings more than you talk about your problems.

I agree, it''s almost always best to focus on what''s going right in your life-except on a girls'' trip. In a hotel room or on a beach somewhere, girls are gonna wear out their problems until the Doritos and dip are gone. Then, after a grocery run, they''re gonna rehash the same problems while laughing their heads off, so . . .

The book arrived today and I was excited to begin reading! Found the book jacket to have a strange feel and uncomfortable to hold. Then I opened the book to find there aren''t any illustrations on the empty pages. I say empty because most have one to three sentences and that''s it so 3/4 of the page is blank and blah beige. Guess one could write their own thoughts but that defeats purchasing a book by Hoda. Disappointed and wished I had waited to see the book in person before purchasing.

I Really Needed This Today is a collection of quotes from the Today show''s Hoda Kotb. It’s a quote a day for a full year. She also gives her own personal anecdotes after each quote, mentioning celebrities, coworkers, family and friends. Her voice shines throughout. It’s sweet, funny and heartwarming at the same time. This would make a great gift for anyone. I loved it, and I really needed this today!

I bought this book, without reading anything about it, for my teenage daughter. Once it arrived, and I began to read the quotes and the book, I stopped reading Ms. Kotb''s writing. I began putting sticky notes to my daughter throughout the book, because I wanted to give my daughter my thoughts, as well, without any influence. THEN, I read Ms. Kotb''s thoughts, which were beautiful and personal and so amazingly insightful. I am hoping that it is understood the appreciation for this conglomeration and my creative out-take with my daughter...she''ll be heading to college in a couple of years. I wanted for her to have perspectives when tough nights at school came about. It was absolutely a bonus into my life, and hopefully, hers.
