“I don’t believe in god outside of us” – Shannon on asking for energetic help when she needs it.
She grew up in a non-denominational christian church with gospel and shaming, “Beat you up type church.” It felt so wrong to her that the pastor was driving a Cadillac from multiple passings of the collection plat–and the toilets in the church didn’t flush.

“I will make the rules in life as long as it’s kindness” – Lisa
“I’m learning about myself, by who I want to be around” – Shannnon
“What is it about me, that I see in him?” – Shannon

“I think all my high school friends who thought I was weird think I’m cool now”- Lisa + Shannon
She followed her boyfriend to college in Madison, and he broke up with her right before school started!
Last boyfriend was a minister of new thought, old wisdom and was super manipulative. After they were together for 3-4 years, he turned around and said something completely different.
Manifesting manipulation: Trump seems pretty happy with all his money, even though he does horrible things.
Online dating doesn’t work for us. “They are always much shorter than they say” but it’s okay because her friends fix her up all the time.
The Four Man Plan by Cindy Lewis – That book did not work for Shannon. It was way too much work, even though getting the date wasn’t the hard part.

“Even Beyonce gets cheated on” – Lisa
“No one is exempt” – Shannon from real life pain, like cheating.
Judd Apatow telling her a sarcastic “Good luck with that.” Re: stand up, lit the fire under her.
“I gave up fighting for things that aren’t mine” – Shannon
The sheer will to live life fully expressed – where does that come from? Rough childhood and knowing the most horrible things have happened already.

When her best friend got married, she wasn’t jealous, but she saw the beauty of her love and wanted it for herself.
After the farting guy, she just decided not to date. That’s a real talent, he should be on america’s got talent.
PSA to men with farty cars – open the windows.

How are you going to die? Old age, just not waking up one day.
