60 Mindful Minutes

Nov 29, 2022

Tara Schuster had a rough childhood. By her mid-twenties, she was checking all the boxes on the outside but she was falling apart on the inside. Once she hit rock bottom, she began the process of rebuilding herself, essentially giving herself the parenting she’d never received, in order to start becoming the person she wanted to be. Her story and her process line the pages of her runaway hit, Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies, where she shares all the ways she learned to put herself back together.
