Six months ago, I traveled to India to see firsthand what the prime minister of that country calls a national shame. It is the systematic, widespread, shocking elimination of India's baby girls. Some 50,000 female fetuses are aborted every month in India.
Rehabs have become a big business in this country. There are good ones and not-good ones, just like anything else.
For now, for this year, I need to be a good mother.
I love telling people's stories.
We're way overdue on a woman sitting in one of those Big Three chairs.
It's estimated that one million girls in India 'disappear' every year.
I think there's nothing better in the world than a spirited discussion about the Bible and Jesus and God and the Catholic faith, or the Jewish faith, or the Muslim faith - any religion.
I am not a pregnant working mother wronged.
I worked in three local news markets and in every single one of them, they said: 'You're a lousy anchor. We would love to renew your contract and have you be our lead reporter here, but we're not going to have you anchor.'
You know, guys, it is possible for two women to work together and get along.
I'm praying we don't go to war with Iraq. If we do, I may have to go back to work earlier.
I don't know if I was born an alcoholic, but I was definitely born anxious.
Everyone has something that scares them. Everyone must make a choice at some point whether to be brave. Everyone has a story.
Because I am basically so insecure and anxious and afraid, I never, ever in my life learned to reach out for help, ever.
If I've helped one person, I feel really great, but I hear from people daily.
I am an alcoholic. It took me a long time to admit that to myself. It took me a long time to admit it to my family, but I am.
Denial is huge for any alcoholic, especially for a functioning alcoholic, because I - you know, I'm not living under a bridge. I haven't been arrested.
I felt like I had to be, you know, perfect, which is ridiculous. Nobody's perfect.
I'm part of AA. I have a sponsor. I have great, great friends who I love and who love me.
You cannot turn your brain off or stop your thoughts, but you can try while meditating not to become too invested in them. This is called transcendental meditation, which is the kind I practice.
