Many of you asked me how I gave up being a nice-aholic, which I talked about in a previous blog titled Is your Kindness Killing You? If you’ve been following my writing, then you know I had a bad habit of not saying what I really thought in some important relationships and then ended up […]

How Reclaiming Meditation Transformed My Life

Full confession: Once upon a time, I meditated consistently. As a teenager, my sister had a boyfriend who was a meditation teacher, so she taught me how to meditate. I really got passionate about meditation as an adult, attending 10-day retreats where I meditated up to 12 – yes, 12 – hours a day. I studied […]
