In this episode, my roommate Tony and I sit down on his porch to deep dive a wide range of topics. We discuss the loss of family and friends, how overcoming hardship can change your life, the importance of being present in every moment, and much more. This conversation was a train that never stopped once it got rollin'. Climb aboard for an entertaining and enlightening ride.
Tony is a data analytics professional at a marketing agency and enjoys yoga and 90's hip hop. As the personification of chill, he can be found at any given moment in a swanky blue bath robe with his headphones in.

- The full Akeelah and The Bee quote about our deepest fear:
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." ~ Marianne Williamson
- The full quote where Terence McKenna states that worry is a form of hubris, which is defined as excessive pride or self-confidence:
“Don’t worry. You don’t know enough to worry. . . Who do you think you are that you should worry, for cryin’ out loud. It’s a total waste of time. It presupposes such a knowledge of the situation that it is, in fact, a form of hubris.” ~ Terence McKenna
