Are You Grateful?

By |

“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.” ― Eckhart Tolle Gratitude is a buzz word that you may be hearing a lot recently. You might even be annoyed at how often you hear people talk about how important gratitude is. In that case, please try not to become annoyed at me.

PSYCHIATRIA – Anxiety is a Calling pt. 2 with Dr. Jennifer Giordano

By |

At this end of this episode, I literally say, “I don’t know what this conversation means or how I'm gonna edit it or write about it, but gosh darn it, it’s something.” It is certainly something, and, interestingly enough, I am just about as puzzled by the ideas we share in this conversation as I was when we actually recorded it a few months ago.
