Radio Silent

22fe235beade2688808b25d83462b080_touches-of-sense-radio-silence-radio-silence-meme_640-480Want to jump start your healing?

Want to get away for a while?

Go Radio Silent

Turn off the fucking cell phone.

Yeah. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and even Pintrest can wait. You soul, with all of that backed up shit (a.k.a. hurt and fear) can’t.

Unplug. Unwind. Unkink the rope.

Turn off the cell. Go radio silent for the day.

Nothing, and I really mean, nothing is that important that 24 without your cell can’t wait for. I know, what if there is an emergency? And what f there is. Then your radio silent day is the way that it was supposed to happen and the manner in which you found out and how you found out is the way that it was meant to be.

And besides, with a world of cell phone addicted people….you will be eventually contacted about any emergency. Hell, this ain’t the 70s.

The New Book

Aside

Healing WimpsSo my new book is at the publishers and in galley format for editing.

I share with you the awesome power of making the bold and brave decision to:

  • get your head out of your ass and
  • your ass off of the couch 

to start healing from the fit hits the shan moments of your life.

When the world kicks you in the balls and leaves you for dead on the highway to hell, its easy to give-up and choose to not heal. Welcome to a life full of pain and regret.

Or heal.

Get your head out of your ass and ass off of the couch and get busy living again. The choice is up to you!

Book launch is scheduled for May 2017.

The Tale of Story

Standard

So, I am finding that at the very core of what it is that I actually “do” and how I truly want to earn money is that I am guy who tells stories.

MY STORIES. Because my stories are fucking awesome! I am a bit biased though.

And if you know me at all, then you will agree I love to talk about myself and use myself and my life as a backdrop for my quirky, inane – at times and often irreverent comedy.

And I listen to other people’s stories. I am after all a counselor and story is a big part of that role. People come into counseling because the stories of their life are not what they want to hear, read or watch. People believe that their life story needs to or should have gone this way when it reality it is all fucked up. Welcome to life.

As I try to refine the “Bob Zima” brand, which seems so odd to me as it depersonalizes and corporatizes me, so that I can write and live the story of my life that I desire, I am finding that at the heart of it all, I am a middle-aged, over-weight, over-educated, under-employed, opinionated, irreverent and overly-sexual Frequent Flyer to Hell and Back. And thus, what in the hell is in THAT array of adjectives and tag lines that offers anything of value to others?

Tales of Perseverance? Inspiration? Laughter?

As I review Speaker’s Bureau websites and seek to launch the final phase of my life that includes writing books and blog posts, posting videos, creating podcasts traveling and speaking and teaching and signing books and making people laugh and say, “Hmmm, what the fuck just happened to me as I listened to THIS GUY”….I am finding that the best speakers have a passion for something other than speaking. Speaking is just the means of sharing that passion, a passion that inspires others to innovate, heal, improve their lives and the lives of others.

In short, I need to focus on the art and actuality of what it is that I do: lampoon and satirically rip the shit out of my own healing and the fucked up way in which many of us naturally attempt to begin and/or continue then actually discontinue to knowingly stop the healing process.

In most cases, we are programmed with a default healing plan. Problem is we stray from that (for many complex and valid reasons) and turn to anger, addiction, infidelity, risky behaviors and other things that actually created more need for healing than actually heal.

The Power of Story

Audio

When it comes to healing from the Bullshit of Life, the power to heal is not in WHAT happened to you or even WHY it happened. No. That’s the drama and the fireworks that merely grab our attention. It is not the medicine.

On the other hand, HOW you respond to the fit hitting the shan in your life is what healing and life, after the crisis event, is really all about.
