The what now podcast where we threw conversation discuss ways that we can effectively address life's most difficult moments so sit back, relax and enjoy tonight's episode. Hey, what's up everybody? Welcome back to the what now podcast. That's right. The wooden um podcast where we have conversations about effective ways of facing and addressing life's most air quotes difficult. End of air quotes moments and we also have matured throughout this Podcast as we are in season two, I think this is episode 10 of season two and I think we had 30 episodes in season one. So by now we understand that we have scratched out that were difficult. It's just a part of our intro and we have inserted inside of that word or inserted beside or inserted in place of that word defining moments, defining moments and here's the reason why they are now defining moments because they were only difficult because that's the stance that we took on the perspective that we were looking at them from.
But now we have taken a new perspective and taking on a new perspective and now we look at them as defining moments and not moments that define us, but moments that we define because we took back the power we took back the authority we took back the right that we have that was given to us by our creator, You're sure Yamashita, jesus the christ It gave it unto us. We're taking back that power ourselves and now we are using the creative expression that he has given to us to create the world that he has called and designed us to create. All right, so thank you all for joining me on tonight. Listen guys, thank you for listening to our last podcast. Like I said, it was so heavy on my heart, we didn't even do an intro and I pray all of you have been out there protesting. I understand some riots have happened and some looting has gone, gone on. We've already addressed that. I'm praying for everyone's safety but I'm also praying that the same energy and the same synergy that was created from the protest will now be created are not just created.
The momentum of it will continue all the way to those polls to vote that you will vote nationally. But more importantly, you will vote locally as well and that you will fill out those census forms every year. Why? Because if you don't fill out the census forms, then you are not giving your voice any power and authority because it's almost as if you don't exist, there's no representation. So let's get the census numbers up and make sure that the census numbers rightfully represent our homes, our neighborhoods, our towns, our regions are states in our country. All right. And we can take this thing back. But thank you again for joining us.

All right, let's do business together. All right, So let's go. So, tonight show. All right guys, Tonight show is very important to me. Many of you listen to the show. So you have an understanding uh, that this is part of my therapy. Uh, me and my therapist talk very often he is my best friend and you know, I call him my best friend because if he were to go out and tell my business, I could sue him. And if I sue him, that's gonna be a blessing to me and my family and those that are connected to me, we will be blessed financially. But you know my therapist is cool, he's a dope dude. I mean he's really cool but conversation him and me had helped me realize how sometimes I'm out of touch with my emotions and I don't always express how I honestly feel.
Um I've gotten a lot better at it. But we realized from childhood on up I suppressed a lot of things and the actions that I had many times did not testify to how I honestly felt about people about situations and other things like that. So this podcast is an outlet for me. It's a way for me to get emotionally how I feel out. And this is big for me because that means that everybody's hearing how I feel. But I'm so in touch with purposes. So in touch with my story that if my mistakes, my shortcomings, my messing up can help you get to where you need to get because it's helped me get to where I need to get now I want to say something, you have to learn to live life with no regrets because every decision you made positions you where you are now. So it's connected to your purpose. If you change one decision that you made, then that would alter alter the trajectory of your life and in the midst of an altar, in the trajectory of your life, you don't know where you'd be.
You would be right now. If I made one different decision, I wouldn't be sitting behind this blue yeti right now talking to you. So that time sometimes that creeps up in me and I said, well, what if I hadn't done this and what if I hadn't did this and I should have did this and I could have did this and that's all fine and dandy. But all that matters is what are you doing with your now? What now? What are you doing with your now? Because it's what you're doing with your now. That's going to produce the future that either you desire, the future that's connected to your purpose, the future that God has created for you. Or will you find yourself right back again where you are now a year from now. And we're not doing that. We made up our minds. We are not doing this. Listen, 2020 has been enough. We are not going through this again. All right, So let's go tonight guys, I want to take the focus off of myself today is what what tonight is Wednesday june 3rd 2020.
This is my brothers And my sister in law's 14 year anniversary. They've been together 21 years I believe, but 14 years they have been married. You don't know how big of a deal that is, especially in my family. One of the things that I told them to them and my great boy get yourself together, why are you getting ready to cry? Dude? I told both of them separately, I text my brother and told him and then my sister in law, I told her on her message um about Basically paraphrasing how I'm grateful for them for being the example to many of us that don't see the possibility of 14 years child. Sometimes you see the possibility of 14 days in a relationship putting up with me 14 hours. What are you talking about Man?
14 minutes, you might be ready to leave me. Let me stop. Maybe I'm exaggerating, maybe I'm not anyway, you know, I want to send a special shout out to them because you don't hear much of that anymore. And here's the thing what I love about them is that they're they are perfectly imperfect for each other. So basically what I'm saying is that they're not perfect and if somebody looked at their situation, you know how people like to look and be judgment or whatever they may feel that it's not perfect, however, it's perfect for them and that's the reality about relationships guys and I'm not doing a relationship teaching. I've always been good at giving people advice about relationships. It's just the relationship situation with myself that I seem to can't give myself advice on. I I don't know, we'll talk about that on another episode, but they are perfectly imperfect for each other.
And what I love about them is they're not trying to be anyone else. They are themselves within their relationship and they have defined their own relationship. And I love that. I love it. I love it, I love it, I love it, I love it. I love it because so many times you watch people trying to mimic other people's relationships and sometimes that can be stressful in and of itself and call stream on that relationship. But I just love, you know who they are and who they become from child yo from childhood. I'm not even going to get on the bus rides with how both mom, our mom and her mom, you said I'm we're not gonna go there, okay, we're not gonna do that type of a podcast, but just to see where they are now and the success they're experiencing in their individual lives as well as corporately together is amazing. It is so awesome and it testifies of the work of God, but not just the work of God.
The work of themselves because the reality is that in order for God to be able to do what he desires to do, then we have to be willing to allow him to do what he desires to do to through and for us. So I just wanted to get on tonight to honor them and thank them for being the example that they are And I know it's just the beginning for them because I you know, congratulations on 14 years and another 14 and another 14 and another 14 and so on. Thank you guys for for your willingness not to give up, not to walk away, not to be selfish, not to be stubborn and setting that example for all of us. Like I said in our family, that's not the example we're used to. So seeing that curse broken because listen, I want the one to break and I'm gonna be honest with you, I was not the one to break it. Okay. Y'all know I play but be serious at the same time.
So either get with it or just turn the podcast office up. That you don't matter me. But I thank them for their willingness because I just didn't have it in me. But watching them has restored a hope inside of me that I was thinking today I might mike now the mic is capitalized, mike is capitalized. I might be interested in starting dating again. We're not talking about that on tonight. Um but yeah, let's talk about that. Just one minute. What has happened because it seemed like we got quarantined and and then people lost their mind on facebook. I have never in my life seen mm the crazy stuff I saw on my facebook. How are people We're gonna do a whole another show how some people are so bold. I mean because I just I don't get it. I don't have that confidence. I have confidence in myself. I know I look good but some people have a confidence that exceeds Anyway, let's get back to the task at hand.
I really want to thank them you know, and take time to really honor them on tonight. Because like I said, they they or an example and something to look for. Not not the whole idolize their relationship but to realize, you know that transformation can take place individually and it can take place uh as a unit. So yo I love you, I appreciate who you both are. Um as I said, I don't always show it haven't always said it, but I do want you guys to know that I am really proud of the both of you. I'm probably gonna get off here and cry because they're trying to come down and uh can I can't see it coming down my eyes. So I gotta make this song cry, make this podcast cry you feel me. Um but I just want you to know I'm proud of you guys and you know who you are And it's just a made 14 years, wow 14 years.
Thank you guys for giving us all hope again. Or hope for the first time for some people, but you've given me hope again because after a divorce anybody has been through a divorce. You know, you go through the stages of grief. Uh some of us handle divorce differently, handle breakups differently. And after my divorce, I was in a situation ship. Yeah, not a relationship situation ship. I write about that in my book as well. And you can also get you a copy of my book by visiting www dot clinton Pettijohn dot com.

And as I always say, if you apply the principles to your life, you proved to when you apply the principles, there's no transformation in the areas that you're applying it 100% refund. All right. But you know, you go through the various stages after a divorce and you're questioning yourself about a lot of things.
And one of the things I really questioned myself was about was a relationship being in a relationship wanting to be in a relationship. Do I have the patience to be in a relationship? Do I want the responsibility of a relationship? Do I just like being by myself, do I just enjoy my own time and I realized I enjoy my own time. I realized I like me a lot more than I used to like me because I used to not to like me and that's on another podcast. You want to hear that. But I really have fell in love with myself in my time and my energy and all of that, all that great stuff. But now, you know, I really not just today, but leading up to today, I've really been thinking of like, you know, you might should give that another try. So who knows? We'll see. But thank you all for inspiring us on tonight on today. And I saw all the love that was given to you guys through social media. And I can only imagine the love you guys got beyond social media.

Yeah. Can you identify any areas in your life where stagnation is manifesting now? I know some of you might say no, I can't. I want us to look at stagnation for what it really is. Some people have identified stagnation as something that's not growing or that's not producing. I don't believe that stagnation to me stagnation can also be that yes, we're growing. Yes, we're producing however, were growing and producing in a manner that's disrespectful to the purpose and the greatness that resides inside of us.
