Tune into today's Motivational Monday episode, where Rob shares a passage from one of his favorite devotionals titled, The Rudder of the Day.  

"Be very careful how you start your morning. You are planting the seeds for what the day will hold."   With that said...we not only start our day off right...but we use the day as a springboard for the entire week!  


• What activities are you doing today that are more a result of habits than well-thought out thinking?


That's a deep question to answer - but I challenge you to do so in the group chat!

Believe it or not I met my last serious relationship on here, so I guess Im crossing my fingers that lightning will strike twice.

I'm 42 and without children, but every bit of my DNA hopes to be a dad someday. (Soon!!!)

I live on a 12 acre homestead in So IN.  I keep chickens and goats and try to garden, but tackling the chores is difficult alone.

I recently left a regular 9-5 job in Louisville to chase my dream of running a food truck.  I built a wood fired pizza oven and have been working steadily at growing it the past few months.  

I'm prone to making some dumb mistake in a relationship, or running with blinders on when it comes to a project, but I respond well to honest communication and criticism. I know that I don't know it all. Even if I act like I do.

Ok, here are some pics.  I look forward to hearing from someone special soon.



Fantastic that you met your last serious relationship from permies.

I hope to do the same.

Best wishes to you!

Join Rob in his excitement as he dives into the Old Farmer's Almanac for inspiration and motivation for today's show.  From vegetable and bone broth, to old-time music and slow food - Rob reflects on the good life and shares a story on how and why we should consider living it.

Listen in as Rob shares how the Old Farmer's Almanac feels like "home" this morning, and how *good* it feels to be happy in life...and the differences between being poor and debt-free.  From escaping the grind to craving a life of the grind, you won't want to miss this episode.

Rob takes an article from Men of Order and uses that as a springboard for a discussion on the nature of cryptocurrency, the fear and misunderstanding around blockchain technologies, what happens when the internet goes down, and how homesteading may be the solution.  

What's your stance on cryptocurrency and the future?  

Are you hodling?

Rob discusses that much of what is seen in the "news" is little else than a distraction.

I was one of the many that tried to "force" polyamory on myself because it fit what I thought my ideologies were.

I was wrong.

Don't be afraid to change who you are as long as you can explain the why to yourself and the infinite creator.



Yes. Don't put an expectation on yourself to fit some prototype of what a freethinker is, a person into permaculture, a this or a that. We know who we are inwardly and we can open up to ideas but never in such a way where we alter ourselves to fit something that doesn't fit us. It never works.

For me, polyamory would never work. I used to watch two ducks at San Gabriel park in Texas when I went on morning walks and they clearly had a monogamous relationship. I nicknamed them Ralph and Alice because sometimes they looked a little contentious. For some animals/people this is what we want. All other ducks be damned, they had each other.

I think the worst thing is when people, being human and capable of developing feelings for other humans who they wish 'would change' don't accept at face value that someone is not going to be able to be what you want/need. I think we've all done this, thought we should invest time into someone and those things we aren't okay with will change-- and even though it's not our fault if the other person was manipulative or deceptive in some way, it is something we're all responsible for. Knowing there is something wrong and admitting it to ourselves and acting accordingly. It's an act of self love. Even if it's not a situation where the other person is 'doing something wrong', but it is a situation where it's wrong for you, and for what you know you need.



This idea of fitting a prototype is a hard habit to break.

I built my business with this methodology, burnt out - almost shut it down, but decided to rebuild.

You are correct, we can never alter ourselves to encourage something that isn't natural for us.

Perhaps it was natural to give it an honest go the way I did...but it was natural for me to "return to center."

Those ducks make me smile and make my heart ache at the same time.

We've all wanted others to change...and we all want ourselves to change - even when it's inappropriate.

When we learn and what we do with what we've learned defines us...and yes - it *is* self love.

Thank you for the insightful response.  I appreciate it.

One might think that Rob would do a "spring" show with the vernal equinox occurring yesterday...but the only constant in life is change - and he shares some upcoming changes that will be taking place with the show.  

We are going to add some variety into the show...which includes YOUR feedback!

This will help provide some balance and diversity to the show.  

The only constant in life is change.  

Embrace it!  

Do you have any ideas for a feedback show on Friday?  

Let us know how in the group chat!
