Mindfully Patient

I purchased a book called the Mindfulness Pocketbook. I skimmed it once, really liked what I saw and then forgot about it for 3 months. In an effort to be more mindful, I am going to be mindful about opening up this super easy to read pocket-book and read one chapter a day and share…
