Antwane Bohanon: What Is the Tennessee Volunteer Military Academy?

"So I want to jump into this. I've never heard of the Tennessee volunteer military academy. This is what grades 6 through 12. Yes, currently gray 6 two 12. We petitioned with the Memphis Shelby county schools to be able to open up fall of 23, 24, and now we're just waiting back for that approval. All right, so my understanding is that you've been getting some blowback over this to some extent. What's going on, why the problem? Well, one of the problems that we currently have in our city is that there are a lot of individuals doing the exact same things from public schools, charter schools, and now we have something different, which is a full-time ROTC military charter academy. So from that mindset, everyone thinks that we're going to militarize our children. So, and that's my understanding here, the chairman of the local Republican Party was jumping into this because the school board denied the school because of concerns that you were guys were going to want to create a militia or something. Well, not necessarily a militia, but to a point where they weren't quite familiar with how we would actually perform. So yes, Kerry von did get involved and also mister John du Barry, the senior adviser to governor Lee is also on our board. So we're in compliance, now we're just waiting for approval.

The Feds Are Now Targeting Ordinary Citizens on the Right

"I've spoken about the FBI as a group of thugs with badges. And we have seen the ways in which the FBI arbitrarily raids Trump's residence, Mar-a-Lago. We've seen the FBI's orchestration of the Whitmer kidnapping. And we have not fully seen, although it's beginning to come out, the FBI's role in January 6th. Interesting as the government tries to make a conspiracy case, a sedition case against oath keepers. They are now admitting there were FBI informants embedded in the oath keepers and they're trying to create the idea of some sort of an oath keeper's plot. As far as I can see, it's nonsense, but interestingly, FBI and filtration is a reality. Now, but I want to show that the FBI is going beyond this to terrorize ordinary Americans and by ordinary Americans I mean ordinary Americans who are right of center who are Republican who are conservative people like us. And I want to focus on the case of Mark hauk, so Mark hauk is a family man, 7 kids, wife, lovely family, founder of an organization called the king's men, which promotes Christian virtues among men. He's also a sidewalk counselor and what that means is that he is an activist. He's a pro life activist, and he doesn't hesitate along with others to show up to these abortion clinics and attempt to do sidewalk counseling of women. Now sometimes what happens is that there is altercations, not surprising between people who work at those clinics and the sidewalk counselors. So apparently what happened is that one of these clinic volunteers was entering into an altercation, not with Mark Howe himself, but with his 12 year old son. And the clinic guy who was an older man began to scream at the young boy and go into his face and what Mark hauke did almost instinctively and whether it paternal impulse to protect his son is he pushed the guy and the guy fell. Now, big deal. This can happen. This is almost something that can be anticipated and when you have confrontations as always the rest of somebody's going to get shoved. In any event, this guy was not particularly harmed. He later tried to make a complaint against Mark hauk, but the complaint was thrown out. It was basically one of those cases where I slipped, I fell, and what, I had to put on a band aid, who knows. Nevertheless, the point is the court didn't even take the seriously the whole thing was thrown. It was thrown to the sidewalk, so to speak. And then what happens is Mark how suddenly gets raided by the FBI. There's some dispute about whether there were ten agents or 15 agents or 20. Well, there were a lot of agents, and they came in and they began to try to break down the door and they had weapons drawn, and they terrified, of course, Mark haux children. And they claim that he's violating a federal law and the federal law apparently is one of those laws that is called the freedom of access to clinic entrances law. So supposedly, you're not allowed to block people from entering a clinic. Well, Markov wasn't doing that. He wasn't blocking anybody from doing that. And in that sense, he was not interfering with the freedom of anybody to make their own decision about whether to go to the clinic. He was merely trying to counsel them when the Planned Parenthood or the clinic activist shows up and begins to berate a mark haux sun mark how sort of instinctively tries to defend his own kid.

FBI Raided Mark Houck's Home for a Misdemeanor

"In the shoes of this pro life leader, Mark hauk, who is a good and decent man. He shoved the accusation as he shoved a pro abortion activist who was getting in the face of his 12 year old son and saying all sorts of horrible things, and I suspect you, mom and dad would do the exact same thing. The federal court threw out a lawsuit, but now the FBI is cracking down and sending 30 FBI agents. Your tax dollars at work, 30 FBI agents, and an early morning raid on the family home. Over what is, in fact, on the books in Pennsylvania, a misdemeanor crime. So if you don't, if you don't believe that the Biden administration is using the FBI as a bully pulpit, you better wake up

Doug Mastriano: What Led to FBI Raid of Pro-Life Leader

"Can you give us some background on what happened what led to this raid? Yeah, apparently about a year ago, there was an instant in between us. So the victim, of course, here is the guy we're speaking about, Mark. He's a sidewalk counselor at a clinic. And apparently one of the pro abortion counselors got into an altercation with the Mark 12 year old kid and apparently I guess he was the protagonist was pushing around whatever and fell over. And district court in Philadelphia through the case out. That's not good enough for Joe Biden though, so Joe Biden is now using a fair federal charges in federal agents to enforce this law. Now look, that's fine, but show up with two or four agents and discreetly going with a couple cars, cars and do what you have to do. But this is obviously Tod. It's designed to send a signal per Joe Biden's awful horrific speech and independence hall last month here that political opponents here that he is going to go against us and he wants us to sit down and comply.

"Do you see change the most since you first came into Congress to now? Interestingly enough, we're sitting here in appropriations where it should be the culmination of appropriation season. Appropriations are not handled the same way as when I first arrived almost 20 years ago. And appropriations used to consume the entire summer may, June, July, we majority at the time, Tom delay, I remember our first term, said look, I know you're used to being up here maybe three days a week, but summer's coming. We got appropriations. We got to get through it. It's going to be 5 work days a week. We're going to have late night votes on the floor almost every night. Because appropriations were brought to the floor under an open rule. You and I were on the rules committee, open rules were pretty much had gone by the wayside when even when we were on the rules committee, but an open rule means any member can go down to the House floor, take their big chief tablet with them and a crayon and scratch out some words and then say I've got an amendment at the desk. And bring up whatever, whatever might be related to that particular appropriation bill. And what it does is give every member, even not just members on the appropriations committee, not even senior members or committee chairs. Every member gets an opportunity to try to impact those appropriation bills. So it's time consuming and I guess that made a lot of people uncomfortable that people talk so much during that process, but gradually got squeezed down to squeeze down, now all the appropriations bills at some point this year will all be packaged together will either be called an omnibus bill or too many bus bills, but all 12 appropriations bills will be combined in some form or fashion. And you get one vote. And you don't get to amend it. It comes up under a closed rule

"Let's begin with the title like any good discussion. You've got a clear the terms. First chapter of the book is what is the church? Let's just return to this question. It started off with 12 men who had their leader, their rabbi, the son of God, murdered by the state. It became the most powerful force for good on the earth. What is the way in the 21st century we have to understand the word church, Eric. Well, when I say letter to the American church, to some extent, I'm speaking principally to my fellow born again believers evangelicals. Of course, this applies to anyone who would call himself a Christian, you are the church. If you say, I am a Christian, you are the church. But to give you hopes of bastion, I wrote the book, I felt a compulsion for I don't say this kind of thing lightly. If anybody knows me, I wouldn't say it lightly, but I felt a compulsion from God, the right this book. I believe God wanted me to write this book. I had a bizarre confirmation. I was going to write the book already, and I was going to privately print it because I said, I just want to get this urgent message to pastors that if you wake up and speak up now, we will avert the disaster that the Germans did not avert because of their silence. If we can reach those people. And so I said, I'm going to write this book as fast as I can. I'm going to publish it myself. Never done that before. And I had a meeting with my publisher Salem, okay? You're familiar with Salem. That's our who puts out our radio programs. And they said, we've got some ideas for folks who we want to write, and they describe this book. And I said, that is astonishing. I haven't told anyone that I want to write this book. And so I published it with them, and we rushed it into print because I do feel the urgency that if people who claim to be Christian will behave as though they believe what they claim to believe.

I was really happy to see galatians 5 one, 5 one says it is for freedom that Christ has set you free. Stand firm then and do not let yourself be burdened again by yoga slavery. Slavery, one verse and the other one, which is, I say, will be on my tombstone, hopefully, about 30 or 32 years from now. John 17 four, I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. That's a call to all of us because we were born for such a time as this, believe it or not, but the one verse I saw missing, which I think is so key today is Romans 12 two. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your thinking. The pattern of this world keeps telling Christians, don't be political. It keeps telling Christians, you know, shot up, or you're a bigot, or you're this, or that, and the Christians say like, I go for like, yeah. Instead of saying, be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

"Everything. Thinking of everything took more than 25 years and $10 billion. Engineer Amy Lowe explained the challenge. In my mind, the biggest engineering challenge was to build a sunshield capable of shielding the optics, the mirrors and the instrument on web. How do you build something big, the lightweight? The sun shield keeps web cold and dark. Any infrared heat from the sun or earth would blind the telescope. The 5 layers are made of Gossamer sheets, not unlike mylar birthday balloons. The layer facing the sun is layer one and layer one reaches about 230°F. So a pretty warm oven like if you wanted to cook a meringue or something. And on the telescope side. On the telescope side, it gets to negative 370°F. There's a roughly 600° difference. There is between one side of the heat shield and the other. Yes, it's amazing that it's able to do this with nothing more than these layers. The engineering is amazing, but the science may reveal the universe. Since the beginning, the Big Bang, the arrow of time has flown nearly 14 billion years. Webb may see all the way back to the first 100 million. The baby universe. Powerful telescopes that amber straw is an astrophysicist on the project. Telescopes really are time machines. They literally allow us to see into the past. And the reason for that is just due to the nature of how light travels. Light from the sun takes about 8 minutes to get to the earth. So we're seeing the sun as it was 8 minutes ago. And you can sort of think about stepping that further out into the universe. So when we walk out under the stars and look above us, we're not seeing the stars as they are today. We're seeing them as they were, perhaps millions of years ago. Absolutely. Because it took that long for the light to reach the earth. Yes, for sure. How much do we know about the universe? Everything we know about. Everything we can see, me and you, everything on the planet, all the hundreds of billions of other galaxies. All of that only makes up about 5% of the universe. The rest of it that other 95%, we have no idea what it is. That 95%, the unknown is all around us like a ghost. Nearly all the cosmos is made up of what physicists call in desperation, dark matter and dark energy. Never seen scientists infer they must exist because they're the best explanation for how galaxies form and move. So we know that dark matter is sort of the scaffolding of the universe. It's the structure on which galaxies sit. And if there wasn't dark matter, there wouldn't be galaxies in there wouldn't be us. What might the web telescope reveal about dark matter? It's like we have this 14 billion year old story of the universe, but we're missing that first chapter. And Webb was specifically designed to allow us to see those very first galaxies that formed after the Big Bang. Now, galaxies are born, and then they evolve. They change over time. And this way that galaxies change must rely critically on dark matter. And web is going to allow us to observe that process of galaxy evolution in much more detail. The promise of discovery shielded web on what's already been a treacherous journey. It was to launch 7 years ago, but delays come with a machine this ambitious..

"I think they can unfreeze the funds for the health sector of the organism. It is very important and it's the need of the time. The international community has spoken pretty clearly and said, they're not going to unfreeze funds unless there's a guarantee that all girls will be educated in Afghanistan is the Taliban willing to consider any kind of movement in that area. I think it's a political issue. Education is a separate chapter and a department and health is a different department. What I hear you saying is you want to keep health separate from the idea of education. Yeah, why they are mixing the two different topics. Because I think the idea that, you know, educating women is good for the health of the country. Yes, there's no doubt. But the minister would not go further on concessions for girls high school and university education. 9 days ago, the Taliban issued a decree banning both forced marriage and treating women as property. But there was no mention of allowing women to work outside the home. Soon after, the World Bank released $280 million in aid for Afghanistan. A small portion of the $1.5 billion frozen by the World Bank. Vicky Aiken has led the U.S. based international rescue committee in Afghanistan for four years. We need to figure out a system for continuing to support just basic services like education and healthcare. The previous government 75% of their budget was funded by development donors. 75% of the government budget was funded by donations. Yeah. And so healthcare education have dried up. Yeah, and there's still no clear way forward. So her staff of 1200, mostly locals, interview families in the neediest neighborhoods. That's how they found Myra 19 years old, she fled eastern Afghanistan three months ago with her two children. What kind of challenges have you faced? I faced a lot of problems. I couldn't support my children to buy something like food or clothes. The international rescue committee gave her about $400 to get blankets and food for winter. But they are fearful their funds could run out. If the aid wasn't here, what would that mean to your family if there wasn't this help? I wouldn't be able to support my family or children. I'm really thankful for them Monday. What does $400 mean to a family in this moment? It means everything in this moment. I mean, we see a lot of cases where people might send their children off to work. Including as young as 5 or 6, you know, they might sell their daughters into marriage. And now it sounds horrendous. But when you have a family of, say, 8 people and you have no means to feed everyone and they see that as their only option, humanitarian leaders say, without swift action, more people in Afghanistan could die of hunger next year than from the violence of the past 20 years of war..

"He explained how their relationship with the Taliban has evolved over the years. Has the Taliban said to you, we want you here. We need you here to help us. Yes, absolutely. From the beginning. And we've said from the beginning, that we would be uncompromising when it comes to girls education, when it comes to making sure that women can work. Since August 15th, have they been more or less receptive to what you have to say and what other NGOs have to say. They are receptive now in the sense that they're realized that with power comes the responsibility to do something for the population of Afghanistan. They realize they have that responsibility and in that sense they're willing to have those discussions. Because of those discussions, UNICEF is now able to access communities previously off limits.

And the reason that this road is so bumpy is because there were so many IEDs here. This was a Taliban stronghold for about a decade, so groups like the UN would never have dreamed of coming out here. It was the first time UNICEF had been to this rural area in 12 years. What's the theory about how and the first time they were able to lay eyes on one of the results of their negotiations with the Taliban? This community based school for girls. For how many of you girls is this your first year at school? Raise your hand. The youngest girl here is 6. The oldest 12. Many of them told us they hoped to be doctors. The school and 4500 like them operate with the Taliban's blessing. How did that happen? You know, this was a province that was controlled by the Taliban for a decade. How do you get to them and say we want to have a school here? Talking to them, explaining the difference it makes. The discussions we're having with Taliban don't start from scratch. That confidence that was built over the years in the air as they controlled that trust is starting to build. What we saw in that school was heartwarming, but we know there are a million girls in high school who are not going to school. We know that there are no women being allowed really to attend college in any way. Are you making any grounds in that area? We are making some grounds, but not enough. That's so what we hear from Taliban is they want to do that in the way that is keeping with the culture that the culture of the country. And so we need to find a way to do that. This country needs everybody's strength. Hello. After months of negotiations, we were granted access to meet doctor calendar abad the newly appointed health minister of the Taliban. A 41 year old physician, he was educated in Pakistan. And we were a little uneasy when he invited us to eat with him and other Taliban leaders in the basement of one of their buildings. He agreed to speak to us about the health crisis facing the country. But he told us he didn't want to discuss politics. Taliban gunmen kept watch over the interview. Some of the humanitarian workers we spoke to said that the country is on the verge of its worst humanitarian crisis ever. Do you believe that to be true? We are on the edge of this crisis. I remember that the funds are freed by the international community..

"D. Do i mean what happened to all these to these tracks. You're making your stare storing them on a playstation one memory card. Could you bring them to a cd. Is there any way to try to get it off of the console. Exactly that was one of the that was. One of the problems is that the memory wasn't wasn't very large on the playstation. One memory card. I think you could probably have like kind. I'm trying to remember. I think it was maybe four or five like three to four minutes songs on it before it would run out. I had eight meg of storage. I think it was that limited there. Yeah there you go so if you were using a ton of the built in samples you could have like more of the songs on it but if you brought in your own samples it would obviously lesson how much you could you could. You could keep on there so yeah when you ran out of space you'd have to run the you know the whatever. The red yellow rca outs to something either. To the external digital attract we had her to a cd burner when we had a standalone one for a little bit but unfortunately tons of it is kinda gone because it all just sort of resided on the on the memory cards and it wasn't my playstation anyway said god knows whatever happened to that memory card. Yeah somewhere out there so allah ernest. Hemingway lost a trunk of his writing when he was young. And so it's out there somewhere. These loss novels there are lost devon bryant. How did this get played. Demos on memory cards at some game. Stop yeah or they were overwritten to make room for tomba saves or something i. It's funny too because this is truly still the way that i write. The themes for the show is is midi blocks and kind of with the same enter interface. Mtv music generator was absolutely my first experience with midi programming. Wow that's so cool. Yeah that's a little behind the music. There you go right. Vh one with mtv but doesn't a separate two different things. They're sort of the same now. Because i think they are owned by they probably both owned by viacom. If i'm not mistaken yeah. So what's owned by viacom all of our asses. The aso signed my birth certificate. They do yeah they on me. I wanna see the birth certificate matt. Okay here. we go again knicks. A let's see the birth certificate please when you familiarize like that. What a dumb thing to want. Let me see one of the most boring pieces of paper. I could see so it's paper president until i see piece of paper boy. Sorry we just lost another twenty subscribers. Thank you so much for talking to us about this fascinating fascinating piece of gaming history and And the birth of alleged. And let's let's get into but let's get into this week's game. Unfortunately we're about twelve minutes on the podcasts. Which means we should talk about twelve minutes. Twelve minutes is an adventure. Game developed by luis antonio and published by anna purna interactive. It was released this year. August nineteenth twenty twenty one for microsoft windows xbox one xbox series x slash s. The game is about a man stuck in a time. Loop allah groundhog day. And he's trying to solve a crime that is committed in front of him before it is too late and his wife or himself ends up dead. But that's just the beginning only sukey tale that unravels in ways unfounded by just the premise. So loan it's twelve minutes and if it was up to me we'd only spend twelve minutes playing it We should mention. This is on game pass. If anyone wants to play along i i'll also say that Will like we did with her story. We'll talk a little bit. Generally about this game and then get into the nuts and bolts of the story. Because there's only so much that you could with a with a big fat spoiler warning because there's only so much you can discuss about this game before we get into the narrative which i found. I'll just say this. I have a pretty star strong stomach. Like i'm you guys know me i'm afraid can edge. Lord oh my god. You're something heat seeker to correct. That's a well now. Now you're mixing universes the this game a lot of this. I found very upsetting a lot of the subject matter in. And some of the some of what transpires in this game. And i guess anyone who's potentially going to play this should know going in that it gets very dark and really like really horrifically violent and in ways that your player character must be complicit in or active in. Yeah i mean. I i before we start talking about this i want to. I need to shout outs a friend of mine and a script. He wrote So alex rubens was a fellow writer. Both rick and morty and twilight zone and we used to talk to me about the chilling implications of groundhog day is that bill. Murray's character does not fall in love with and mcdowell. He experiences time so many times that he manipulates her into a relationship and that alex's theory about time loops is they inevitably force the experience. The the the experience. Either the person who's stuck in the loop to become sociopath that you cannot experience time in the way suggested by these fictions without becoming a terrible fucking monster and then he wrote a twilight zone episode called. Try try again from season to twilight zone. I think it's one of the best scripts that i've ever read. Because it's just about fucking dude who's like in a time loop and he's like having a meet cute with girl at a museum and that sort of like the the foundation for the thing in the same way. That twelve minutes is about a guy who comes home and his girlfriend's got dinner prepared for them and a little bit of a surprise like a present and a personal reveal. But i think to what nick was just saying about the culpability of the player in these acts of.

"A timeline for his return from the injury to his non throwing arm is as of now still unclear. Byles brandon lead lsu to a one two record last season before suffering a season injuring injury versus missouri. Max johnson on the other hand to know starter for the tigers recording a touchdown to interception ratio of eight to one so we expected a battle. Now we're not going to get that battle in. It raises the question of. What's next at the quarterback position greg mcelroy. How much pressure is there. On max johnson. Now that he's essentially been handed this job well stepping into shoes like starting quarterback at lsu. There's always going to be pressure. But i would actually say the pressure has been lifted significantly. Now knowing that he doesn't have to share reps he can focus exclusively on himself without having to look over his shoulder and potentially getting replaced. I think when a quarterback doesn't have anyone pushing in behind him then there's no pressure there go out there and sling it and if you throw four picks five picks yeah it's not ideal but hey guess what. We don't have anyone better so go out there. Play freely and do everything you can to just not worry about anything other than your own performance. So i think there's no pressure and the fact now that he's going to get every single first team rep to prepare for the season. He's going to come in more prepared. Because you're gonna come in with better chemistry with as wide receivers and i also think too. He's going to put them in a position. I think early in the year to get off to a good start and probably surprised people. Because that's a talented roster guys that i feel pretty good about and i don't think enough people are talking about so harry. Let's stick with the pressure conversation but from a different angle. Right like coach o. Came into a national championship season under some pressure wins at all that changes but last year was a disappointment. How much pressure going into this season is there on ores era. I do think that there is a measure of pressure you know. Obviously the pandemic season was difficult for everybody and they just had an atrocious defense. Got your defensive coordinator. Switch there obviously with both leany out but you know having the national championship season. That they had twenty nine thousand nine especially. That was one of the best college football teams we've ever seen right. We all know that his sports that buys you a lot of good faith that buys you more time things of that nature. But i do think that this is a big season for him and i do think that something else that we have to consider. Here is the allegations against him that he handled sexual misconduct allegations that were brought to him improperly or poorly so i do think that this is a big year for him. I do think that he would benefit from a good season And that this is not something that he can take lightly in in that You know this this year is going to be big for him. They were going to have to put up big numbers and you know win some games..

I am very focused on getting things done that early in the morning like i said i try to do a lot before the rest of the world wakes up. Because then it's distraction central in my life. So i don't eat when i get up. I do have breakfast. But it's typically after. I get home from the gym Which is like mid morning which is just a regular time by the way. It's probably regular breakfast. Time for other people to ten thirty that i get home from the gym but i make sure that my first meal of the day is healthful again. I am intentional about what i eat as my first meal of the day. I make sure i have something healthy. Good protein packed because that sets me up for success for the rest of my day because afternoon and evening time is when i struggle to eat. Well you know once it's late afternoon like three four five o'clock that is my danger zone. That is my food danger zone. So if i can start from my very first meal being healthy and a lot of protein which makes you stay fuller longer than i'm setting myself up to do better in my few hours that i'm gonna struggle right so eat a healthful breakfast and i always make sure i drink a big loss water and i take my vitamins.

"Teeth. That's it bam that's simple it doesn't have to take time the other thing. I wanna talk about morning routines to you. Don't have to do the same exact thing. You gotta give yourself some wiggle room because everybody's going to be different on this. Some people love to do exactly the same thing every day all the time and they're very comfortable with that. If you're that person perfect do that but if you're a person that catches your self struggling to stick to one thing every single day the same thing then you switch things up or you do it a different way. I love to meditate. That doesn't mean. I meditate single day of my life or that i meditate in the same way every day of my life. Sometimes i'll sit in a different room. Sometimes i'll go on youtube. And i'll look up a new meditation. Sometimes i'll listen to something completely. Different or do visualization or. I'll do walking meditation. Because i can only do the same thing for so long so for me. It's like batches you know like. I'll have a few months that i do this. One thing like podcasting. I'm sure you guys are the same way like all few months that all i do is listen to podcasts constantly. Podcasts all the time. And then i kinda get out of that phase and it'll be audiobooks in all be reading books constantly all the time and then on grew out of that. It'll be youtube. And i'll be watching videos all the time you know so you have to have different things to plug in. It doesn't have to be routine. Doesn't mean the exact same thing all the time. It means that you have a routine that you're going to do something intentionally to care for yourself and put yourself in a good mind space. That's the routine. It's not about the specific actions. It's just that you have a routine of doing things to be happy healthy and make yourself a better human and to be more productive in your life. Okay let's get to these twelve things twelve morning routine ideas again. Don't blow this out of proportion. Don't think you have to do all twelve of these. I'm saying pick two maybe three. That's all in. None of these should be more than ten to fifteen minutes they can if you're at a different place if you've been practicing longer and you're more disciplined in. You can do longer. Like i promise you when i started morning routine thing was probably three minutes now. I can do more stuff. Because i'm more disciplined. I've been doing it longer. I have more practice. So but don't blow this out of proportion and think that you've got to do each of these things for an hour apiece. No dude no do each of these things for a few minutes again. The key is that you are consistent. It's not how long you do it. You can build on. How long you do it once you get better at it and more comfortable doing it but in the beginning keep it small bite sized pieces because i want you to do it consistently so make it make it fast make it easy twelve.

"Telling you. I watched three shows last week in all three of them have a main character main storyline around addiction recovery. And i was like. Wow this is crazy in. it's so beautiful too. Because they're all high functioning successful people married with families not homeless not uneducated not poor. Not all those things that people think you have to be. These things to have addiction rightly are just regular people. And i got this warm and fuzzy feeling you guys because i love it when they put us out there in such a realistic composite way. We are everywhere. People with addiction are everywhere. There's nothing weird about us. There's nothing different about us. We're just regular people living life in doing all the same things that everybody else is doing. And what a beautiful thing to see that portrayed on television instead of just the insanity of drunken party lifestyle that we've been so saturated with for so many years you know like i just love this and you know my favorite show. My favorite favorite show is a million little things. One of their primary characters is an addict. He was alcoholic and that has always been a story line in the show and he had an injury pain pills and now it's this current storyline of the world. Right injury surgery pain pills addict so i just love seeing this and this is one of the things also. I can get a little protective of a when people say they go to a and don't connect or i went to a and it didn't work for me and i can get my feelings hurt by that. Sometimes because i think about the people in those rooms in that we are the same people that you encounter everywhere in your life we are the via the vp. Of your bank. We are the person in the checkout line. Ringing up your groceries we are your real estate agent. We are the person sitting next to you at church every sunday. We are the people that you are surrounded with everywhere you go so it seems weird to me when people say oh i went to a in. I didn't connect or i went and it didn't work for me. I'm like how does it not work for you. We're the same. We're the same people that you were drunk with at the bar or at your office party like. How do you not connect. You know it's like you don't connect because you don't want to connect because we are just regular people. We are hilarious. We are really smart and we're the same people that you see everywhere you go. I promise you every day when you're standing in line somewhere. Hopefully socially distanced in line around you. I promise you is a person because we're everywhere but anyway i just wanted to bring that up. All of that that that. That stigma is being broken down. It's okay to have addiction. It's okay to be sober. It's okay to just be who you are in to be okay with that within yourself is the first step to getting acceptance in feeling accepted in the rest of the world. You have to accept yourself and that is a big piece of my morning routine. You didn't think i was going to be able to tie that all together did you. But here we are my morning routine.

"I was with those people. And that's when it dawned on me. I was like. Oh my gosh. That is not how i want people to feel when they hang out with me like that is not the effect i wanna have on the world so i knew i had to make some changes and i want to be a positive force in people's life right. I want you when you hang up the phone with me or walk away from me after having dinner or even clients you guys doing group coaching in the vip sober society. When those calls. And i want you to feel good because all the energy in that room has been good. That's why i focused so much on the positive side of thing and celebrating victories instead of being constantly in the problem. And what's not working. What's working against me. And what's so hard. I don't wanna focus on those things. I want to focus on the victories to focus on the solution. Because that's how you create change and that's how you feel better. I hope all of that makes sense before. I get into these two deep. I want to say one other thing. I was noticing last week. You know there are so many of us out in the world who really are core belief and desire is to create change around the negativity of sobriety right like. There's no reason that we should feel weird for being the nondrinking people in the group right because it's so common for that people drink and it sucks that. There's this weird stigma around sobriety. I don't even care about the stigma of addiction or alcoholism because really that's breaking down so fast if you're still a person that has the thought in your head that being an alcoholic means you know you're homeless. Listen a hot mess. And whatever like that's your old school stuff that's not reality and that's not what the majority of people think. I think everybody's pretty clear at this stage of the game that alcoholism and addiction can take down anybody in everybody..

"Be Mindful of the people around you. Maybe you see someone in the grocery store who looks tired or stressed out, or their kids are acting like animals and you can see they're embarrassed. Take three seconds to say a few kind words or give them a complimentary offer, some empathy about our children acting like animals because we can all feel that pain. I don't have my own kids, but I have a very clear understanding that those little people are completely irrational and wild. I just saw a girl at the gym yesterday. The daycare is right next to the women's Locker Room, walking out the locker room and she had just gotten her kids at a daycare. And Baby, probably seven or eight months old was screaming at the top of her lungs, and the poor mom was chasing her other one who was about two or three, chasing her down the hallway. In this poor girl was young. I mean she was in her early to mid twenties and you could tell. She was just about to lose her grip, and her kid was screaming, and I just looked at her and smiled, and I said I totally understand where she's coming from. I feel the same way about three times a day. And we both got a laugh for his second I wanted her to have a moment of empathy in a moment of relief, and to take the edge off instead of obsessing about myself, and whatever thing I'm complaining about in the moment and thinking about keeping my head down because my anxiety is so bad. Stop only thinking about yourself. Lift your head up. Make someone else's Day. Better be of service. Okay let's recap. One expectations expectations are premeditated resentment. Don't have unrealistic expectations about what you will get or how fast you will get it in sobriety. You're playing the long game, not the instant gratification game. You will definitely have some relief when you quit drinking and we continued relief for the long term, so we are going for lifestyle change. It's so funny to me. How quickly we expect results in our lives when we get sober, when really usually we've dedicated years to our demise, right? It took years of drinking to get where I dot, and it only makes sense that my healing will take time. Also don't get frustrated. Just no, there isn't a fast and easy solution..
