Do you ever wish you could just get rid of all the chaos in your life? I used to as well, until I had a wise woman tell me that the eye of the hurricane is the calmest place of the storm. So today instead of wishing it away, I am constantly Seeking Calm in my Chaos. Join me as I interview guests that teach us practical ways to do that well in our daily lives.
