Step Two: My Body is my Temple - Part 2

Have you ever been so tired but did something anyways? Of course you have, we do it all the time. Often it's our jobs, or kids or some goal and then we push push push and burn out or get sick or whatever. In some ways there is no getting around this. Most of us have to work, congrats to you if you don’t, or you have kids, or you have goals that require a lot of energy. Push push push...who doesn’t do this...everyone does. So how do we listen to our body when it says “you need to sleep” but your a single parent, or you have a very challenging job that you love?

STEP ONE: Be The Captain - Part 2

Hey Awesome Peeps, how is your writing or pondering going in Step 1 - Be the Captain?

Introducing a 12 step program from Captain Awesome.

If you’re like me and grew up with alcoholics or druggy parents then this title might be a bit confusing or funny.….I think its hilarious and I hope you will too. If you haven’t heard of the 12 step program from AA or NA it’s basically a “how to” for when you become sober. It’s a great program for some and can be really helpful when you’ve made a complete mess of your life. My experience of these steps was when my father would binge drink, then suddenly coming to his senses, finding religion and the 12 step program. It was awful. My brother and I had to endure his suddenness of finding Jesus, going to church and listening to him apologize, then he would get his shit together for awhile. Soon we stopped going to church and he slowly became a dick again. Then….the whole process starts anew.
