Barb is one of my dear friends whom I've known for many years. I first met her almost twelve years ago when we worked at the same place. Upon meeting, we soon became fast friends. I've consistently been impressed with her ever since. Barb is a pyschologist and is always coming up with creative ways to help others whether it be writing books, appearing on television or using social media. Her latest endeavor is called, "The Self-Compassion Project." I hope you can check out her new blog and follow her on this journey in 2012.
