From being so consumed in the narrative of...

9/26/2018
More
You’ve heard me say this before: human beings are social creatures. We’re happier when we have meaningful relationships. We’re happier when we hang out with people. We’re happier if we go to a concert and sit beside someone. When I purchased my house eighteen years ago, I was pretty limited on cash. I rented out my spare room and even my dining room. That was the only way that I could make it work. It was a total struggle. Months after I bought the house, I met my husband and fell head over...

I was adopted. I came as a foster child to the Hemminger family, and my luck had it that they decided to keep me.

That fluid definition is something that my siblings and I have carried forward in our own lives. Today, I want to talk about what we as a culture can do to put divorce lawyers out of work. By the way, I’m a divorce...

If you’ve listened to much of my material before, you’ll know that what I talk about a lot is our ancestors and how humans biochemically change when we spend time with other humans.

Moving Forward with Life Anyways, Even when we forgot to get skinny, be financially successful, or become amazingly interesting. For many of us who are getting to be middle-aged, or older than that, our kids don’t need us like they used to.

The great thing about sending a note the old-fashioned way is that the sentiment is just as valuable as what’s written inside.
