When he talks about we can know things but can’t articulate’s a cool thing.... Our midbrain, our emotional center is in no way connected to the systems that allow us to use our vocal cords, that bc its mammalian, wolves and cats don’t make words they make sounds which we can do. So you can’t communicates them effectively unless they go through the prefrontal cortex first which often isn’t able to grasp all the information at once, or it’s not handed all the information, or it doesn’t have the tools (like experiences or vocabulary) to express what is there.

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.

My therapist ended our session today by saying, "Stay safe and pray for America" and I felt that was a pretty ominous way to leave things tbh.

Thank you Phetasy Pham for the #DropInsWelcome zoom call. I learn so much every single week from all of you.
