season one finale
This episode of Revive Life wraps up season one. Wow, this was meant to be a mini-series made up at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic and this series grew a life on its own. Darren talks about human being versus human becoming, and words do make a difference. I introduce the book "Real Philosophy for Real People" and how we should challenge ourselves by reading a higher tier book like "Real Philosophy."
Revive Life Season 2 is going to start with: Why is it the older we get the faster time goes by, and how to neutralize that perception, which gives one much life satisfaction!
See you in season 2 of Revive Life!

Just like machines, we also need new filters to help our mind and body run more efficiently. One way to do this by learning a new hobby or subject of some kind. I demonstrate this by showing you my bond pond. Using just little materials makes a big difference.
Revive Life Episode 5
I had some company on this episode of "Revive Life'." I talked about one of the seven habits from the book "7 Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen Covey. It was fun to have a sidekick for this episode.
STORYTELLERS EPISODE 7
Storytellers is back and this time is with Thomas Fralinger, the owner of Thomas Jewelers. Thomas is a master of the skill of jewelry making. He has made a few pieces for Darren and for many others. His eye for detail is incredible. If you have an idea or design, chances are is that Thomas can make it happen. Hear about his start, the science of stones, his favorite designs and what makes handmade jewelry even more special than by a machine.
"Revive Life" Episode 4
Since my last episode of "Storytellers" was much shorter than my last few, I decided to make episode 4 of "Revive Life" a bit longer than I usually do. In this episode, I tell you of 2 books, 3 really, that I am a big fan of and have read many times. These books and the stories within contain some incredible ethics and skills. We all know a little bit goes a long way and these books prove that.
REVIVE LIFE part 3
Life will throw you a few challenges, whether planned or not. I decided to take on a challenge recently that required me to think INSIDE the box and I was very proud of the result. Watch the video above to see what it was.
part 2: EVEN SLICES
Part two of my mini-series on how to deal with the stress and worry of this pandemic. In this video, I talk about how important it is that we exercise the four parts of life described in the first video: mind, body, emotion and spirit. It is easy to exercise one or two parts whether intentional or not but forget about the others, this cause fatigue. The best way to avoid this is to exercise each portion to give us full balance to make us the best version of ourselves. Be sure to read my blog relating to this topic in the video description.
Part one: The Circle of Life
I had the idea to make this 3 part mini-series to help those struggling and suffering from stress and worry caused by this pandemic. The best thing we can do (besides stay inside as much as possible) is to keep ourselves in check and in the best shape as possible. I explain there are four parts to life and how each portion relates to each other to make a whole.
