  1. I believe I really liked and agreed with everything on your list. Inspirational. Why is it so damn hard to do some of the things on your list, like sit and have a cup of tea without letting the mind wander off to all the things you “should” be doing? Oh, and I’m curious too: how did The Secret get it wrong?

    • Thank you Virginia.

      As for the Law of Attraction and The Secret, I have a whole post planned on that one. The short answer is that I think The Secret pretty much leaves out one key piece — do the work. I think the book oversimplifies a process and turns it into a magic bullet. And while everyone is looking for that magic bullet, I don’t think it exists.

      But more on that when I get around to writing that post.
