Bob Zima, Frequent Flyer to Hell and Back, teaches you some new mental wellness tricks through the powerful medicine of singing.
Sing yourself into hap, hap, happy mood and leave all of that God forsaken and awful anxiety and depression behind.
And you can suck, as be does, at singing. It doesn’t matter. I suck. Yet I continue to sing and improve my mood. Make today Operaette Day. Sing everything you say. You can’t stay down or anxious when you are singing everything that you say.
And when you make up your own little songs you doubling down by leveraging the most powerful mind technique available to your for coping and problem solving….imagination.
Get those creative juices flowing and anything is possible.
There is POWER in Story. Especially the stories of our overcoming and persevering through the Bullshit of Life! You know. Those times when life grabbed you by the throat and almost didn’t let go. Yet you and I fought and won.
Welcome to The Church of Anger! If you’re seeking healing that you have come to the right place. Take a seat and let’s rock.
Anger can be the easiest or most familiar way we attempt to get our needs met, which is why you and I return to anger over and over again. We want our needs met and we want them met, NOW!
Forcing the issue.
Going for what you want no matter the damage caused is part of the American culture and narrative. We learn it early. We use it. We are allowed to continue to use it by people in our world who don’t know how to or fear trying to stop us from bullying our way through life. So we do. Until we destroy our world or we are destroyed by someone bigger, more powerful. Then, it is too late.
Also, sometimes anger, as a behavior, WORKS.
Sometimes when we use anger behaviors, we get what we want, or so we think that we are getting or going to get what we want. Sometimes anger behaviors work – yet at what cost? Marriage? Children? Job? Friends? One must ask one’s self, “What am I willing to pay to get what I want?”
Sometimes it all blows up in our face, thanks to our anger behaviors, and we end up in the back of a squad car, in the ER with injuries and awaiting an assessment for possible hospitalization, divorce court, meeting with child protective services, being escorted to the human resources office and you see your boss holding an empty carboard box and two security guards staring you down or a host of other ineffective and unhealthyoutcomes that you, I and no one wants in their life.
The goal here is to lead a life that FOR YOU is healthy, effective, and enjoyable, as well as a whole lot of fun. Gotta have fun.
As you may have already determined my writing style is rooted in the art of catharsis:
apurging of pent-up and socially unacceptable cognitive and emotive tensions through artistic expression.
That means people, that my writing, radio shows and live stage presentations are roller coaster rides through my mind and soul and feature commentary denouncing my human folly of vice-driven behaviors leveraged and rolled-out all in the name and good faith of healing. You have just signed up for a cathartic mayhem of stream of conscious rants and raves about life, love, loss, sex, family, music, movies & hockey AND HEALING!
I expose and comically explore the manner in which I interpret the world.
I lampoon and parody the psychological and theological status quo which directly impacts the manner in which I interpret the world and thus directly effects my healing plan.
I boldly encourage myself, and thus others vicariously through my artistic expressions, get my head out of my ass and my ass off of the couch. So, I encourage you to get your head out of your ass and get your ass off of the couch.
