We each walk different paths, we all have separate mountains to climb. That's not the difference though, the difference is what we do when we reach the top. Some do it with grace and kindly reach down and help another up. Some become privileged and think they are better than those at the bottom, some never reach the top at all but are always in an infinite struggle. I hope that if i ever reach the top of my mountain, that i have the grace and kindness in my heart to help someone climb there own. In doing so i hope to make their climb a little easier, and keep them from sliding back down. At the end, what matters is between you and God. #sundaymorning#wisdom#wordstoponderon#mightywords#prayeriseverything
Day84: As much as I love my wedding ring, I know I won't be able to take it to heaven with me. God says to "Choose [His] instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her’ (Prov.8:10–11). If you want true wisdom, it starts with a relationship with Jesus Christ. This is far more valuable than anything the world can offer. Wisdom is highly desirable. It is better than silver, gold or jewels. #bibleinayear#wisdom#seekwisdom#gold#jewels#diamonds#weddingring#hedidgood#fireplace#toasty#marriage#marriedlife
I'm sitting here basking in this day trying to think of something profound to say that somehow sums up the feeling of wanting to cry because you're so full of joy.
Things are not the same since I returned from India. It's undeniable, subtle and visible. And to have Sridhar here reflecting all my change back at me and walking me through the early stages of something new I feel going on within me and around me @heartofyogaschool ... well, I feel really really lucky.
Today was the stuff of magic... #yoga#pranayama#nada#workshop#sadhana#knowledge#wisdom#experience#aytt#yogateachertraining#vibration#subtle
This is one of the most empowering ways to walk through life: not being concerned about other people's opinions of you. When you know who you are, you don't need to react to whatever someone chooses to call you. WC Fields was absolutely right--it's what you answer to that really matters.

Rejecting Jesus Christ and dying in your sin will send you straight to Hell... BUT IT DOESN'T END THERE!
So here they were in this horrible, horrible existence that just seemed to tumble on and on forever, never ending, never slowing down, the same years and decades of torment, regret, sorrow, pain, blanketed darkness, nights never ending, constant consciousness, lostness, aloneness, loneliness, rumblings from the pit, groans, torturing fire, choking smells, unending and unending, no letting-up, no relief, no comfort, never resting, never ceasing, no end in sight.
One hundred years rolling into another one hundred years, slowly turning over into a thousand years, painstakingly evolving into another thousand years, with the same grinding pain, the continual bone-racking agony, screams upon screams, weeping upon weeping, echoing sighs upon sighs, when all of a sudden, they were out of there! It was gone! Could it be true? Yes, it was! The pain, the agony, the torture, it was all gone and now they were standing before a huge massive White Throne with tons and tons of books all around them. And there before them, people from all walks of life, both young and old alike, were lined up in these huge massive giant lines. Why, it looked as if the whole history of humanity was represented here. And that’s because it was.
Suddenly, the joy was replaced by fear as each person took their individual place before the throne and suddenly the purpose of the books was realized. They contained every single dirty rotten thing these people had ever done. No one left those books thinking they could ever enter heaven on their own. Are you kidding me? They fell horribly short! Every last one of them! They had rejected the work of the Messiah and had instead trusted in their own works. And lest there be any doubt, a book that contained all the names of those who were going to heaven, who did trust the Messiah, was opened up. And sure enough, these people’s names who were standing before the throne, their names could not even be found anywhere. And so it was, these people got what they knew they justly deserved. They were now cast into the Lake of Fire, forever!
First I wanted other people to feel shitty with me so I wasn't feeling shitty by myself. Then I wanted someone to fix me because surely I was unqualified for such a task. Now I know that all I need is within me, and that I already know every goddamn answer to the questions I haven't even asked yet. It started by gently giving myself permission to become unbroken, to tell a different story. ::: 📷 via @butterfliesandpebbles

" Confident people set healthy boundaries.
Healthy personal boundaries and high self-esteem go hand in hand. Having strong boundaries means you prioritize your needs and your emotions and do not assume responsibility for someone else’s needs and emotions.
Confident people know what they will and will not accept and don’t allow themselves to be pressured or guilted into doing things they don’t want to do. They act in accordance with who they are and what they believe and don’t cater their behavior for others, or do things solely to keep them interested and happy. When you have weak boundaries, you may sell yourself out in a relationship and put up with treatment that you know is objectively unacceptable. Confident people don’t abandon parts of themselves in order to have a relationship. They bring their fully formed self into the relationship and if others want something else, or something more, they leave.
A person with healthy boundaries will not lose themself in a relationship, and will not allow their identity to be entirely contingent upon how others see them. They will continue to maintain their own life outside of the relationship without giving up their friends, hobbies, or alone time. They won’t abandon important parts of themself or their life for the sake of the relationship and if others want something else or something more than they are willing to give, they'll leave."
14 years! I was 25 and she was my very first hire as a young PD. We were both green and new in our roles and we leaned on each other to simply "figure it out". I truly appreciate your words and your friendship. Truth is, I learned so much from you and will never forget the lessons we taught each other. So great to catch up with one of my favorite people and one of the most talented humans I know. Entercom is very lucky to have you back after all these years and I can't wait to see you fly in San Diego. I, however, will never call you "Dana". Always AJ to me. Love you friend. #fetalposition#rehab --------#Repost from @danadidonato It's been 14 years since I was his first radio hire.
I'm so thankful for the role you've played in my career ever since, MB. You have been my coach, my mentor, and at times, my therapist. You've genuinely cared, encouraged, and listened. You have and continue to ask the right questions and offer humble advice. You've been direct, said hard things, and given endless wise professional perspective in all seasons of my career. We've laughed, I've cried (a lot), and we'll both always remember the moment when the only appropriate response to the situation was for you to curl up in a fetal position on the studio floor.
One thing that I appreciate more than I can express is that you always, always believed in me. You believed in me in 2003 when you hired me, today as we sat across from each other talking about our new amazing opportunities, and all the time in between. Thank you for being an advocate for me, a friend and a great example. I am so happy for your success. #westcoastreunion#fishtacos#oysters#delmar#sandiego#thejourney#radio#radiolife#mentor#wisdom#creative#friend#14yearslater#thankyou#blessed @radiomb
