THE NATURAL STATE OF ANXIETY

THE NATURAL STATE OF ANXIETY

The other day during an interview I was asked why so many people were frightened and anxious and how the Six Affirmations removed those fears.

The basic tenant of Buddhism is that we must accept suffering and allow it to wash over us, through us and around us. But it is… Read More

You Can Never Be Too Rich or Too Thin – Unless You Weigh 89lbs

You Can Never Be Too Rich or Too Thin – Unless You Weigh 89lbs

I quit eating food one time for about a year. I called it being vegan. My Uncle called it “hot”, he has no boundaries and likes submissive women. The hospital called it “anorexic”.  It was my junior year of high school. I started the year weighing 112lbs and eating anything I wanted. I was always super skinny. I tell people that  I used to weigh 400 lbs though. Everybody likes a weight loss success story. Nobody likes a naturally thin… Read More

TRUST

It is OFFICIAL; I have now been sober longer than I drank. This milestone almost seems surreal and I find myself wondering how I got here, to today. I remember those agonizing months, weeks, days and hours before I made THE decision. The decision I was out of control, the decision to live or to die, the decision to walk into a room and tell a bunch of people that I was an alcoholic.  I remember those agonizing hours, days,… Read More

MISFIST

MISFIST

It happened AGAIN! I have been clean and sober for 22 years, 347 days.

You know the company xmas parties, milestone birthdays, the parties where there is lots of alcohol and lots of falseness. You have probably been to one or two of them yourself. I never was good at these so… Read More
