Carol from Staten Island

I really enjoyed your interview with Leonard. I was inspired to appreciate my life much more and the things I notice and see that I sometimes take for granted, and yet not despair because I can capture them in my mind for future reference and inquiry. The way you appreciate each other and collaborate, and yet respect each others independence truly liberated me!
I now have more confidence in myself and appreciate who I am so much more than I did before. And I believe my marriage will be much improved as I now can appreciate my husband's strengths and abilities and accept him and his unique life perspectives and contributions.I also love the title of the book, "Taking My Time" Thank you!
