In response to my blog last week, "Holding myself sacred," I had a girlfriend reach out with an amazingly practical question - how do I do it? With all of the demands of life, how do I honestly find time to take care of myself without feeling guilty about the things th...

One of my favorite things in all the world is a to-do list. There is just something about writing out all of the things I need to do and then putting a check in each hand-drawn box when I have completed the task. It feels right. I feel accomplished. Laundry (divided o...
