"when life gives you lemons, make lemonade."  why do we stop with lemonade?  make lemon souffle'!  Do you even know where that saying comes from... it's a cool story.  Hear it on this episode of the #nobadkarma #podcast where i talk about my #instacart #instacartshopper experience and how it affects my #surviveorthrive mentality.  #givechoicespurpose #selfimprovement #liveintentionally #loveintentionally

What would you do to survive?  Beg?  Borrow?  Steal?  How about earn?  How bad to things have to get before you'll work a job that you don't want to do?  What kind of job are you willing to do?  Mow lawns?  Flip burgers?  I remember when my parents divorced, my dad would work his regular job as a butcher 40 hours a week, then paint houses in the evenings and on weekends.  Today, maybe... he'd become an #instacartshopper ???  Like m...

Rebrand your life.  Choose to grow from the trauma that defines you.  Choose to grow before you are forced to do it.

We allow ourselves to be defined by our relationship, our friends, our habits, and our jobs.  The alcoholic allows themselves to be defined with alcohol in their life.  This episode is based upon a journal entry I wrote when I marked 4-years of sobriety, but think with an open mind and you'll understand how it applies elsewhere in life.  I also suggest the daddy is an alcoholic episode published February 2022. #nobadkarma #givechoi...

my 2016 decision to cheat "one last time" ultimately causes me to lose every material possession, including my house.

this is a deeply personal episode recorded in one-take, the first take.  there may be a take 2 episode with video in the future, but the commentary will come in the next episode.

Sometimes you do have to lose everything to find yourself.  But I don't recommend it.  Listen to what happened to me instead.
