Audio Post on Emotional Sobriety and a Way Cool Announcement if you missed it

Shortest post ever!  I felt compelled to share this with you, my Hooligans.  It brought me to tears several times so naturally I want you guys to cry too.  No, seriously, this is such a powerful lecture this guy belongs on Ted Talks.
He is speaking about Emotional Sobriety but it isn't just for alcoholics or addicts, it's for anyone who is filled with emptiness, unhappiness, fear, self-doubt, self-hate, and it rocks.  Yes, it is an hour long but it is totally worth it.  

I hope you enjoy it as much I did and remember to love yourself!  You're worth it!

Tom B. Jr. Emotional Sobriety


Oh, if you missed my post the other day on my other blog I made a wicked cool announcement.


I'll be here in the morning but this afternoon...not so much, so enjoy your weekend everyone, I know I will and if you have plans, I want to know what they are!!  Are you partying?  Spending time with the family?  Working around the house?  What do you have in store?

  1. Wow this may be the shortest post you've ever done. Not that I'm complaining, That sounds like it's a subject so very close to your heart, and would be close to mine given how emotionally unavailable I seem to think I am. I don't really have any plans for the weekend myself, I never really make plans.

    1. I know right, Mark! I can't believe how short this post was and yet it covered so much. I wrote it after I listened to the gentleman speak and still feeling all sorts of emotions whirling around inside me. I think you would really take a lot away from it. As we like to say, take what you want and leave the rest.

      No plans for the weekend? I'm not sure what mine are just yet but I know they will be fun, my son is coming home from college!!

  2. No offense, Elsie, bu I think I'll pass on the emotional S&M. Hell, I cry enough as it is. This week it's because:

    1: I "rubbed" my wife's car with my truck in my garage. Blue and white don't make a recees cup. 2: Youngest daughter just got driver's license - now it's time to add a driver to my insurance. 3. Said new young driver pointed out the car she shares with her sister has issues that are not just annoying, but dangerous. Total repair bill - $638....

    So, maybe next week I'll watch the hour long presentation and enjoy a good cry......err...probably not though. LOL.

    I can't wait till your book comes out. Will it have pics??? :)

    1. You suck! I can't believe you don't want to cry! It won't make you cry, just me. I'm the emotionally messed up one ha ha ha

      This was such a dude explanation - you didn't "hit" her car, you "rubbed" her car. Such a man. I dread the day my Peanut gets her license and it isn't that far away, just a few years. Gack! So sorry to hear about the repair bills, that is just not fun at all in addition to the paint repair you better be making.

      I can't wait for my book either! Oh, wait, I have to write it first. Sure, it'll have pictures - of the beach, flowers, but not of me. ha ha ha

  5. I'm going to check this out Elsie but probably not until later on when I get the chance to really focus on it. I'm not sure if it's going to make me cry, I've read some literature like that before and even attended a GOALS course as you know and I'm a hard nut to crack, I could do with this being really good and powerful though, I'm bookmarking it to listen to it later.

    1. ooh, a hard nut to crack, huh? Now, I really want you to listen to the whole thing, without any distractions and tell me if you tear up at all. Not because he tells any type of sad stories because he doesn't but because if you identify with any parts of it, it will hit home and hit your heart. I remember your GOALS course and I don't know if it's anything like that because it's done with a lot of humor (and a bit of cursing lol)

  6. Damn it! Where is the rant?
    Keeping making me wait at your plant
    But at least it was a short post
    So I don't have to waste any time at your cost
    For making me wait
    For you to go irrate
    Love myself?
    The cat can't do that at his shelf
    He is snip snip
    Nothing there to grip
    But this weekend we are at nannies shore
    Chasing all the other cats and biting the tail of the mutt as we explore
    Will give it a view
    Inbetween doing tax returns, I know ewwwwwww

    1. Figures the cat would go that direction when I tell everyone to love themselves - pig - I hope the dog got you good this weekend. You deserve it!

      The rant was changed up a bit after clarification from the IRS. It was the preparers fault and now I'm really ticked off! You'll see it at Dan's shore soon.

      Ha ha ha! You do the same as my dad used to do. I don't envy you one bit! I hung out at the beach while you were stuck inside crunching numbers!

    1. Comicon? Now that rocks! I hope there is a rhyme about it with a picture to go along with it. To bad you're not dressing up, that would have been fun to see! With the work you do, I'm sure this would be a good listen and I fixed the link too, thanks to Anne's comment!!

    1. Cleaning? Boo! Hiss!

      A bazaar/market sounds much better than cleaning and I hope the weather didn't prevent you from getting there.

      I hope your weekend went well!

    3. Sweet! Spring Break is going on right now and my son is home until Sunday morning unless they call him back early which may happen. He isn't sure just yet. I hope the Spawn has/had fun!!

  11. My weekend was spent blizzarded in, going stir crazy, wishing for sunlight and bike rides and walking the dogs. So by default your weekend already had to have been better than mine.
