Do you meditate?
I’ve been sitting for 10 minutes every morning.
Most of the time, when I get back into a meditation practice, it goes well. I’m usually pretty good at quieting my mind, and I know so many breathing techniques and guided meditations that I can always find something that does the trick.
But lately, all I’m doing is sitting there thinking about shit. It’s like my nervous system is too keyed up to sit still.
Maybe it’s the thrill of coming out of a year of isolation?
I don’t know.
But at least when I open my eyes at the end, I see this guy, who’s been sitting with me the whole time, showin’ me how it’s done.

She’s also the founder of The Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur, a 6-week course that helps HSP business owners create healthier, more sustainable systems in their work.
She publishes frequent essays on feminism, privilege, pop culture, entrepreneurship, the creative process, and more on her website, cultofpersonality.co. She currently lives in Asheville, NC, and while she can *technically* work from anywhere, she prefers her adventures laptop-free.
Emails for cult thought leaders.
Want to learn how to craft emails that inspire action and engagement WITHOUT the “tried and true” (cough: patriarchal) norms we’ve all been taught?
I’m doing it, and I can show you how to do it, too.
(But sometimes, I also like to write about the books I’m reading, or the creative process, or the entrepreneurial experience, or why I hate Steve Jobs, or how I met my BFF. I’ll send you emails like that, too.)
*Just kidding. It’s only an email list.
Books. Cats. Rants. Drawrings.
(and every couple months or so, an unexplained absence 🤷🏻)
