Back in 2016, tv series and New York Times–bestselling comic writer Amanda Deibert inadvertently started a social media movement when she began posing questions to her Twitter followers, intended to spark a little positivity, gratitude, and connection. When her questions started to regularly go viral, reaching up to 11 million impressions in under a week, what began as a simple social experiment ballooned into a now 5-year-long project.

YOU ALREADY HAVE THE ANSWERS is a daily gratitude journal with the author’s personal narrative intertwined to prompt reflection, inspired by her questions on Twitter. Users are invited to reflect on a single question each day—ranging from offbeat to motivational, but always deeply encouraging (think of Amanda as “part–Mr. Rogers, part-foul-mouthed, cool aunt”)—curated around a different theme each month. Amanda uses her own life experience to illustrate that endings are new beginnings, and that our lives are full of lessons and wisdom we may not even know we have. Combined with her daily prompting, this journal is a guide to discovering just how much you already know, and how much you have to be grateful for.
