Friday Bonmots & Bullshit, 9/2

HAVING RELIGIOUS FAITH can make things a bit easier and bring solace. So I’ve been told.

THE TONY KORNHEISER SHOW returns, Tuesday, September 6th! No longer on the Washington D.C. ESPN Radio affiliate, it’s now strictly a podcast. To say I am psyched for the return and launch of the “new” podcast is an understatement!

“I’M FLOUNDERING ON THE SEA of rudderless destiny.” That’s actually not always the case but I’ve always loved that line. Found it in a great book by George Plimpton, One More Julyeasily one of the best books on the NFL and football I’ve ever read.

IT’S SEPTEMBER ALREADY?  Damn. This has been one of the craziest, stressful, fun, dramatic, saddest and expensive years I’ve had in a very long time. Or, possibly ever: there’s still four months left.

STILL GETTING MY HEAD AROUND the concept of Radical Acceptance. One tenet is that everything has a cause. That’s sometimes the hardest to admit and…accept.

SOMETIMES ITS HARD to put the brakes on, to pull up out of that free-fall, that spiral of thoughts, dozens at a time, that fill my head. I’m constantly trying to learn more and apply mindfulness.  I’m exhausted and exhausting, at times.

HEARTBREAKING & HEARTENING is this story on the young boy with Autism who sits alone every day at lunch – until a college football player who was visiting made it a point to sit with him. What the young boy’s mother said about it really choked me up.

I’M SO OFTEN DRIVEN by guilt and regret. I’d rather be driven by fear and revenge.
