These essays are ultimately designed for long term members of 12 step fellowships to help them be better sponsors and to help them be of service to others without allowing it to become their whole identity. In recovery, we get a chance to help others, but, in attempting to do so, we end up making mistakes, and coming face to face with our own characters defects. Service to other is a chance for us to exercise our own personal demons.

I can relate, release, & eventually relax using this supplemental to recovery. It’s brought me great comfort hearing the Hamlet version of the program doesn’t just exist inside my programming. Loved hearing about Romeo,hippy STEVE, and Angry 😤Bill. Can’t wait to hear about Othello and others in this series.

Leonardo da Vinci created the two most famous paintings in history, The Last Supper and the Mona Lisa. But in his own mind, he was just as much a man of science and engineering. With a passion that sometimes became obsessive, he pursued innovative studies of anatomy, fossils, birds, the heart, flying machines, botany, geology, and weaponry.

🖤Please add the wispersync for a discounted price as I am a starving and aspiring historian/artists. I bought the audible because I am interested and in awe of the author and subject almost evenly. The pdf is awesome to have for framing/referencing/projecting into your own works. Thanks I am so grateful for this works. ☕️

Thanks Roger Waters for recommending this book @ this pressing time in history. It took me quite some time for me to go ahead and read it. The Bonuses were just that. I really like how the author and his wife presented that the key is responsibility to not repeat this atrocity. We do owe it to the next generation and our fellow man to speak beyond fear. To overcome trauma and persevere to peace. To not be an ostrich with our heads under informed.

Are you happy? It may be the wrong question. Most of us think we are relatively happy, while at the same time knowing that we could be happier - maybe even a lot happier. Resisting Happiness is a deeply personal, disarmingly transparent look at why we sabotage our own happiness and what to do about it. Breaking through resistance, Kelly tells us, is essential to becoming the person that God created us to be. What is resistance? It's that sluggish feeling of not wanting to do something that you know is good for you.

I wish I’d had the courage to just be myself. •I wish I had learned to express my feelings more. • I wish I hadn’t spent so much time worrying about things that never happened. • I wish I had taken more risks. • I wish I had cared less about what other people thought. • I wish I had realized earlier that happiness is a choice. • I wish I had loved more. • I wish I had taken better care of myself. • I wish I had been a better spouse.........& so much more to work on nowadays:)

  • The Introvert Advantage

The Introvert Advantage dispels common myths about introverts - they’re not necessarily shy, aloof, or antisocial - and explains how they are hardwired from birth to focus inward, so outside stimulation such as chitchat, phone calls, parties, or office meetings can easily become "too much". Most importantly, it thoroughly refutes many introverts’ belief that something is wrong with them. Instead, it helps them recognize their inner strengths - their analytical skills, ability to think outside the box, and strong powers of concentration.

Do you use substances or engage in compulsive activities to regulate your mood? Do you reach for something sweet, a couple of drinks, or a pack of cigarettes after a difficult day because you can't unwind without them? Do you race to the stores to spend away the day's frustrations or run around in circles taking more time to get less done? If these self-defeating habits sound familiar, Emotional Sobriety will shed light on why and how these coping mechanisms threaten your health and impact resilience
