I became a people pleaser extraordinaire and didn’t know there was such a thing as personal growth until my first marriage was beyond the point of no return. Yet two […]

  • What is a Spiritual Gangster?

    The Spiritual Gangster is someone making a statement to the world.

  • You’re Not Busy, You’re Just Procrastinating

    Conversations at work or social gatherings often ring with cries of “I’m so busy.” It’s as if we regard how busy we are as some sort of badge of honor in the delusion that “busyness” somehow equals success. In fact, “busyness” has also been labeled as “the Western Form of Laziness” because it generally stems […]
