The Anarchy of Healing


I believe that if it feels good then it heals good.

Within reason of course.

Drinking and drugging all of the time may “feel good” at first. Yet when you are hugging a toilet at 2 am and thanking it for being cool and wet….well, for me, that does not feel good.

The Anarchy of Healing means that YOU and YOU alone are responsible for finding the activities and connections that are best suited for you in your healing adventures.


Because you are unique. With a unique personality, temperament and life story. And you must leverage those pieces of eight (your personality, temperament and life story) for the purpose of finding the greatest of all treasures: hope, humor and healing.

Marauder Radio: Podcast on Anger


In-Flight Entertainment welcomes you to Marauder Radio starring Bob Zima, Frequent Flyer to Hell and Back. This podcast features the Bob’s quirky insights and lessons learned from having to reinvent, reboot and rebuild his life at least TWICE now…all due to the “Bullsh!t of Life.”

On today’s show, Bob discusses that anger behaviors are the sound of hurt and fear leaving our soul. Anger is the dark harbour in which all of our pains of the past and fear of tomorrow dock and wreak havoc with our happiness and lives.

Bob Zima is a middle-aged, over-educated, under-employed, over-weight, white-guy who believes that when he tries less his life has more success. He’s is healing each and every day from addiction, bankruptcy, plenty of bad relationship, dumb-ass career decisions and the death of two of his children. He has also backpacked through Europe, talked with the Pope, played basketball with Michael Jordan, was selected as the clinical site supervisor of the year in Illinois and has had his picture taken with the Stanley Cup.

Bob is a licensed clinical professional counselor and improvisational comedy graduate of Chicago’s famed Player’s Workshop of the Second City.  He makes healing and counseling fun, entertaining and educational.


Defensive Driving


I have come to realize that my life in the minor leagues, which is as such simply because I have yet to reach my full potential and live out the dreams that I have had for many years, is ruled by the simple fact that I am now engaged in defensive driving.

I now I’m too cautious.

I now am too afraid to take risks.

As a frequent flyer to hell and back I have experienced a number of major setbacks. Of course these narratives became the backdrop for all of the interesting things I do from my live stage shows, keynote addresses, podcasts and this blog. These narratives also sit in the back of my mind and Whisper things like…

oh Bob you can’t do that you may lose again.

Oh Bob you can’t take that risk you may fail again.

Oh Bob you can’t possibly have that dream because it could be shattered again or worse yet never be realized and you’ll hang up your cleats at the end of your life still not going around the bush leagues.

I’m getting tired of this bulshit whispering.

I need a lot of HOOYA therapy or head out of your ass therapy. Yes that’s correct, I need a major cranium rectum extraction.

I need to quit driving so defensively.

I need to get up on that wheel because there’s less than 50 laps to go and if I want the checkers I have to drive and not worrying about the Wreckers. That’s a NASCAR term. For those of you not into this lovely so-called non-athletic sport centered around rednecks then perhaps you’ll understand it this way. It’s time to get my head out of my ass and allowing my dreams to flourish. It’s time to get my head out of my ass and allow things to happen. I still have a lot of Life to Live. I still have a lot of time to make my dreams come true. To move from the minor to the major leagues.

Now, how do I do that? I need a good therapist. Know any?
