Hi brothers, I am working with Mark to achieve a solid 90-day hardcore reboot. I attend church, bible study, and have an accountability partner. I try to connect with the Vanguard community, but connection is something I am working on and would appreciate your help. I have started this reboot/Reforge adventure with a focus on my daily devotionals, the CUT Method, and meta-script journaling. I am doing a good job learning and being courageous through the emotional pain that comes with an epic journey like this. As a direction result of this problem, I got divorced several years ago. Furthermore, this problem has also cost me about $250K in money given away for the divorce, for therapy/psychology/psychiatry/coaching, and lost promotions & bonuses. I am a little overweight and my life is a little out of control. I am in my mid-to-late thirties, was educated as an engineering, and work as an engineer. I live in a little house with a flat mate and my good cat. My house is old, so I am often improving it in some small way or doing maintenance. To relax I like to watch anime. My favorite anime movie is Nausicaa. My favorite anime shows are Ascendance of a Bookworm, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, Restaurant to Another World, Didn’t I Tell You to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life, Bofuri: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense, By the Grace of the Gods, So I’m a Spider, So What?, I’ve Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level, and The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent. All these shows fall into the Isekai genre of anime. When it comes to gaming, I enjoy strategy games or RPGs like Final Fantasy, XCOM2, Civilization, Skyrim, most of Blizzard's games, Stellaris, Total War - Warhammer, Horizon Zero Dawn, and others. Steam has alot of games along these lines. I also enjoy playing D&D … or maybe I should say that I like building characters for D&D as playing doesn’t happen often. When it comes to classic movies I like fantasy action-adventure with comedy like Guardians of the Galaxy. Movies like Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit are good too. Same with Harry Potter. On the TV series front I like Dr. Who, Sherlock, and The Witcher. When it comes to books, I've read most of the Wheel of Time series, Dinotopia, the Duncton Wood series, and the Eragon Series. I also enjoy spiritual books with a magic bent to them like The Cabin, The Great Divorce, The Alchemist, and others. If you know of a good one, please suggest it. I am developing a clearer vision for my recovery after my Reforge is complete. I know it is solidly centered on God the trinity. I know it involves freedom, abundance, and connection. I know it involves a wonderful wife, good friends, and a good home. I know it involves helping the community (maybe Reforge group at church), a stable career, and healthy passive sources of income. I pray to God for the love, faith, joy, peace, self-control & strength, gentleness & courage, kindness, patience, goodness, and wisdom, support, and everything else needed to make all this and so much more a clear and present reality.
