    John Carver Show - Lessons from a Mental Hospital (Glennon Doyle Melton)

    in Self Help

    I was introduced to TED TALKS (http://www.ted.com/) by a life long friend many years ago and I have been hooked since that day.  Glennon Doyle Melton shares her painful journey with addiction and pretending to be what she was supposed to be for others in her life.  She says, "we make our own little world and that is called, for some, addiction."


    Here is some more of what she said:


    "Acting — pretending was a matter of survival. High school is kind of like the real-world sometimes. But in the mental hospital, there was no pretending. The zig was up. We had classes about how to express how we really felt through music and art and writing. We had classes about how to be a good listener and how to be brave enough to tell our own story, while being kind enough not to tell anybody else’s. We held each other’s hands sometimes just because we felt like we needed to.


    Nobody was ever allowed to be left out. Everybody was worthy. That was the rule just because she existed and so in there, we were brave enough to take off our capes. All I ever needed to now I learned in the mental hospital.


    And so I’ve learned that if I honor my feelings as my own personal profits and instead of running I just be still but there are prizes to be won and those prizes are peace and dignity and friendship.


    So I received an email last week and let’s now take to my computer at home.


    And it just said, “Dear Glennonm, it’s braver to be Clark Kent than it is to be Superman. Carry on Warrior”.


    And so today I would say to you that we don’t anymore superheroes. We just need awkward, oily, honest human beings out in the bright, big, messy world. And I will see you there."


    You can watch her speech at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qynxlhuYF0g


    She understood that even in her situation she was still special.

    Miami, FL – In the heart of Miami Beach, Sally Drinkhouse and Nicole Pritchett are opening one of the coolest additions to the hottest city in Florida: ice bar and premier lounge Drinkhouse Fire and Ice, the first of its kind in South Florida, is set to open in the spring across from the Ritz-Carlton in South Beach.


    Every inch of the bar will be made from ice, from the furniture to the art and even the drink glasses. However, one of the most notable features of the ice bar is its state of the art LED light system and energetic décor – selenite tables, crystals and photography by Peter Lik, one of the world’s most renowned landscape photographers.


    “Selenite is a powerful crystal known for its ability to remove negativity from its surroundings,” says Drinkhouse.


    The bar will also feature world-class ice sculptures and unique hand-carved pieces courtesy of award-winning ice sculptor David Berman.


    "I think this city is ready for a truly unique entertainment experience," says Drinkhouse.


    On the weekends the lounge will feature both locally and internationally-known DJ’s, as well as feature talented choreographers from around the world, like internet sensation Lady Casa, whose following is incomparable in the nightlife dance scene.


    In addition to the Ice bar, Samadhi lounge, a ‘warm’ bar and elite speakeasy located within the ice bar, will feature unpretentious service, energetic décor, and the freshest ingredients mixed with the finest spirits to offer exceptional cocktails and an intimate, memorable experience.


    The temperature inside the bar will be kept at a cool 23 degrees and guests will be supplied with faux fur-lined hooded capes and leather gloves to keep warm.
