Author and Speaker Polly Campbell says, "I’m not always the most spiritual person. For instance, I didn’t feel peaceful when my daughter swallowed a penny. I’m not all that loving when my husband forgets to fill the car’s tank and I don’t even WANT be mindful when I’m sitting in the dentist’s chair.
But I do believe that we can live happier, healthier, more peaceful lives by choosing our thoughts and taking inspired action. I spend much of my time reading and studying how to do this. I live this stuff — when I’m not wiping up sticky counters, and sometimes, even while I am. I practice the traditional techniques as well as the newest self-improvement strategies. I write about this stuff for magazines and Web sites. And my book, Imperfect Spirituality: Extraordinary Enlightenment for Ordinary People."
