Audio: Don’t Get Distracted

new audio recorded for my audio podcast subscription thingy.

Are you worried about finances? Fretting about decisions you made in the past. Anxious about shit that might happen in the future? This audio is for you.

[that sounds so much like a script for an infomercial! "got bugs, fleas, mice? this product is for you..."].

OK, really. This one is about how when we focus on shitty things, it distracts us from being happy.

Below you’ll find a 3.75 minute extract; the full audio is about 15 minutes long but this will give you an idea.

Audio: This is what I deserve

Last night I recorded a podcast for my audio podcast subscription thingy.

Wanda sent me this email: “My husband has started saying WWBS? (What Would Belle Say).. Belle tells him he needs to relax more, have more treats, go to bed early, and not worry about getting things done…”

Wanda also emails me as she answers her own questions, imagining what advice I might give to her.

So I decided to do a podcast where I try to figure out what ‘belle’ would say to ‘me’…

… about how much sleep I get (or don’t get).

And holy good god i think it turns out to be about what I think I deserve.

I’ve prepared a 3 minute extract for you to listen to here. It starts playing from the beginning.

Happy July 4th … an anti-wolfie audio

I’ve just recorded a special July 4th audio podcast for my podcast subscription thingy.

Someone asked me to record a message she could listen to when wolfie was breathing down her neck. I hope this does the job.

I mention “stay here” and “not today” and “every day forward…”

I have some advice on what to do if you’re on day 13 and you don’t magically feel better (yet).

And i talk about sober momentum.

I’m posting the entire audio here and it will be available for 48 hrs. Click below to listen:

Audio: Sober Passions Part 4 (what next)

Here’s the fourth (and final) section of the ‘long’ audio i did on Sober Passions. I have divided the long audio into chunks, and today I’ve prepared Part 4 for subscribers.

The post about Part 1 is here. The post about Part 2 is here. The post about Part 3 is here.

Here’s the entire audio for Part 4 (it’s about 7 minutes long). In Part 4, we talk about the passion class that I’m developing. And the live participants on the call put in their 2 cents. Your feedback and ideas welcome, too.

Photos: Weather

Assignment #16: Weather (here are the photos!)

The project this time was to take a picture (or create some art) of something that could be called ‘weather’.

Thanks to everyone who sent in pictures, this post is now closed to new submissions.

If you want to join in for the next assignment, stay tuned.

 

This post is now closed to new submissions.

Audio: Sober Passions Part 3 (gather information)

Here’s the third section of the ‘long’ audio i did on Sober Passions. The post about Part 1 is here. The post about Part 2 is here.

In Part 3, we talk about how our first job is to be sober. And wolfie just loves to wind us up with a whole bunch of expectations, ideas on the ‘right’ way to do things.

I have divided the long audio into chunks, and today I’ve prepared Part 3 for subscribers. And I thought I’d post an extract here too.

In this this extract I’m talking with Matisse about her passion. Click below to listen:

Audio: Sober Passions Part 2 _ (And+And)

Here’s the second section of the ‘long’ audio i did on Sober Passions. The post about Part 1 is here.

In Part 2, we talk about how – as boozers – we often have very black and white thinking, all or nothing.

So if we could go into your brain and rewire just this one thing, it would go like this: It’s not either/or. It’s And+And.

I have divided the long audio into chunks, and today I’ve prepared Part 2 for subscribers. And I thought I’d post an extract here too.

This extract starts with me speaking to Trish about her passion. Click below to listen:

Audio: Sober Passions Part 1

Yesterday afternoon I recorded a special live call about Sober Passions for my audio podcast subscription thingy.

My intent was to make a lovely little podcast, and I thought I’d answer a few questions and it’d last about 20-25 minutes…

Ha! The full audio is more like 45 minutes, and thanks to the live guests, there is some really great questions, some breakthroughs, and some a-ha moments (for me!).

We talk about the clarinet, sobriety insurance, and I share some of my catering experiences and how baking relates to my sobriety.

So I’ve divided up the long audio into chunks, and today I’ve prepared Part 1 for subscribers. And I thought I’d post a 2-minute extract from Part 1 here.

‘Prelapse’ … what happens before drinking

Here’s an extract from episode #46 for my audio podcast subscription thingy.

So I figure we all know what relapse is. But I’ve discovered in talking with Team 100 members that there’s something else called “prelapse” that happens BEFORE drinking.

And if you can learn to see prelapse in advance, and recognize what it is, you can change what happens next.

This is a 3 minute extract that starts right at the beginning of this new podcast (the full audio runs about 15 minutes).

Audio: Here’s What I need From You

Earlier today I recorded episode #45 for my audio podcast subscription thingy.

In this podcast I do something weird and quite hard. I try to explain boozing and being sober to someone who doesn’t get it.

Like, imagine you have a husband, a wife, a girlfriend and they’re not sure what’s up with you.

This audio is sort of an explanation of what it’s like to be a drinker who’s now sober… but also tells our partner what they can do to help us.

“Honey, can you offer me my replacement drink every night at 6:30 pm” as well as “Honey, you being a jerk or mean to me makes it much worse. And I’m doing the best I can, even though you don’t really understand.”

This audio was hard to record. This is tough stuff. It’s also long.

This is a 3.5 minute extract (the full audio runs about 20 minutes).

The audio begins right when i’m explaining to the ‘husband’ about high and low bottoms, and about how some of us quit drinking even when you don’t think we need to … Click below to listen:
