SORT BY Relevancy
When most people hear the word “desperation”, they certainly don’t think of a gift. In fact, the dictionary defines desperation as, “a strong feeling of sadness, fear, and loss of hope”. But as with so many other things in recovery, like surrender, vulnerability and powerlessness, desperation has an opposite meaning.
Taking that first step in stopping drinking is extremely difficult for most of us. We can’t even begin to imagine how to live our lives without alcohol…until we become desperate. When we are in enough pain, when we become desperate...we make a change. We surrender. We ask for help. This is why we call it, “The Gift of Desperation”.
On this episode we will discuss what the gift of desperation felt like for us and how we use that same gift as a tool in maintaining our sobriety.
This week we'll discuss the desperation that can set in when dating after 30 years of age.
As the biological clock ticks women look to settle down. Sometimes we look in all the wrong places.
Trust me, I know! Lets discuss this desperation epidemic and how we can stop it.

Have you noticed that when you are in the wrong place to find what you seek, staying longer than you should doesn’t change anything? No matter how much confidence and determination you have and no matter how convinced you are that what you’re doing ought to work. Tune in this week as Lisa Jones and I discuss those times we become so identified with our aspiration, it’s so much part of our lives, that the idea of leaving it feels almost taboo. It is in these moments that we should take the aspiration to ascend back into ourselves. In this realization, we can realize the need to climb through and beyond the ego’s empty choice to a better time to emerge. This is the tricky choice as we are negotiating from moment to moment with ourselves of how long to last in our conviction. Sometimes this will mean holding to an inner path and changing course outwardly, to get out of the void we’re feeling. This show is about remembering that ‘lasting’ is meant to mean through ‘change and realization’. Life does not always turn out the way we planned.
Are you inspired in your life to do well? or Are you desperate to get to where you want to get to?
Today's show will help to differentiate between Inspiration and Desperation. Who are we being when we are inspired, and when we are in a state of desperation.

I cannot get over the intensity of some people to stay focused for years and decades until they reach what they’re striving for in life.
“Be on guard. The road widens, and many of the detours are seductive.” ? David Foster Wallace
“Knowing the Techniques of Survival........
Life has a way of knocking you off balance and even knocking you down from time to time.
There’s many verses, in the Bible, that talk about focus.
Psalm 42:1-2 - “As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?”
Can you hear the desperation on the writers words?
Psalm 63:1-4The Message (MSG)
A David Psalm, When He Was out in the Judean Wilderness
63 God—you’re my God!
I can’t get enough of you!
I’ve worked up such hunger and thirst for God,
traveling across dry and weary deserts.
2-4 So here I am in the place of worship, eyes open,
drinking in your strength and glory.
In your generous love I am really living at last!
My lips brim praises like fountains.
I bless you every time I take a breath;
My arms wave like banners of praise to you.
Desperation, many times, causes intense focus!
Washington Post (Feb 2014) - Earlier this week, fishermen near the Marshall Islands in the western Pacific found 37-year-old Jose Salvador Alvarenga adrift in a 23-foot fiberglass boat. Alvarenga had a fantastic story: He'd been lost at sea for 13 months, after setting off for a day of shark fishing near the Mexican coast where he lives, 5,500 miles away. Some have expressed skepticism about his story, but he would have been far from the first to endure such seemingly unendurable odds.

Jeb Bush is about to send Dubya out to campaign for him; Baltimore still drowning in its own self-shed blood; Barack Obama is preparing to terminate the Second Amendment by Executive Decree; Russia is pouring troops and equipment into Syria; "In Defense of Looting" at Yale University; Donald Trump childishly lashes out at Marco Rubio; The Muslim invasion of Europe is reviving Danish nationalism; and is Hillary Clinton giving up on Iowa and New Hampshire?

Plus we’re continuing our conversation and in-depth dialogue about Draft Kings & Fan Duel: the massive amount of advertising; professional players taking abuse from fantasy players; NCAA regs against participation while ads appear during the broadcast of games; except in the “honorable” SEC where they have banned advertising.

We welcome Suicide Prevention Advocate, Carl David, to the show to discuss suicide prevention and his book "Bader Field".
Bader Field is a survivor’s story, and talks about how death, specifically a suicide, can wreak havoc on loved ones left behind. The book reveals the story of how a family endured struggle and torment after a suicide, and their fight to survive. David uses the book as an outlet to ‘pay it forward’ and help others cope with depression and suicidal tendencies. The author wants for those who are suffering to know that though they may feel lonely,
they are not alone. “Those who are so desperate need to know that they don’t just destroy themselves, but everyone around them as well; their family, friends and acquaintances. I pray that my perilous journey through those darkest days will bring light and hope to anyone on that final path, and draw them back,” states David.
