As we celebrate the end of one more year around the sun and prepare to begin anew, this is the time of the year when we all tend to set our intentions or resolutions. The promises we make to ourselves to implement the changes we need to make to get life right this time. For […]
Every Woman Wears Her Diamonds On The Inside. Here’s Why.
In the summer of 2011, I took a trip to Carcassonne in southwestern France. I was drawn to a retreat for burnt-out executives, run by a psychologist and his wife in the lead up to leaving my legal career.

I Went Vegan And My Friends No Longer Love Me. Here’s Why.
At the beginning of 2019, I switched to a vegan diet. No longer would I consume the produce of innocent animals. It was a long time coming. For the last eight years, I called myself a flexitarian, which was a polite way of saying I tried my best to follow a vegetarian diet. I’d occasionally succumb […]
