Poison & Wine | The Civil Wars

Poison & Wine written by John Paul White, Joy Williams & Chris Lindsey

You only know what i want I you to
I know everything you don’t want me to
your mouth is poison your mouth is wine
you think your dreams are the same as mine

I don’t love you but I always will
I don’t love you but I always will
I don’t love you but I always will
I always will

I wish you’d hold me when I turn my back
well the less I give the more I get back
your hands can heal, your hands can bruise
I don’t have a choice, but I’d still choose you

I don’t love you but I always will
I don’t love you but I always will
I don’t love you but I always will
I don’t love you but I always will

I don’t love you but I always will
I don’t love you but I always will
I don’t love you but I always will

I always will
I always will
I always will
I always will

Poison & Wine is a musical snapshot about the dichotomy of love – that while it can be the thing that destroys you, it can also be the very same thing that beckons and builds you. This song was our attempt at being as brutally honest about the dangerous and beautiful process of knowing and being known. (-Joy Williams, The Civil Wars)

The Civil Wars are Joy Williams & John Paul White.

GRATEFUL: A Love Song to the World

Musicians Nimo Patel and Daniel Nahmod brought together dozens of people from around the world to create this beautiful, heart-opening melody.

Inspired by the 21-Day Gratitude Challenge, the song is a celebration of our spirit and all that is a blessing in life.

For the 21 Days, over 11,000 participants from 118 countries learned that “gratefulness” is a habit cultivated consciously and a muscle built over time.

As a famous Roman, Cicero, once said, “Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.”

This soul-stirring music video, created within a week by a team of volunteers, shines the light on all the small things that make up the beautiful fabric of our lives.

The game that can give you 10 extra years of life (Jane McGonigal)

“A traumatic event doesn’t doom us to suffer indefinitely. Instead, we can use it as a springboard to unleash our best qualities and lead happier lives.”

The top 5 things that people with Post Traumatic Growth say:
1. My priorities have changed, I’m not afraid to do what makes me happy.
2. I feel closer to my friends and family.
3. I know my self better, I know who I am now.
4. I have a new sense of meaning and purpose in life.
5. I’m better able to focus on my goals and dreams.

The top 5 quotes of those with Post Traumatic Growth are directly opposite of the top 5 regrets of the dying. It seems a traumatic event can unlock our ability to lead a life with fewer regrets.

When game designer Jane McGonigal found herself bedridden and suicidal following a severe concussion, she had a fascinating idea for how to get better. She dove into the scientific research and created the healing game, SuperBetter. In this moving talk, McGonigal explains how a game can boost resilience — and promises to add 7.5 minutes to your life.

Reality is broken, says Jane McGonigal, and we need to make it work more like a game. Her work shows us how.

“If you can manage to experience three positive emotions for every one negative emotion … you dramatically improve your health and your ability to successfully tackle any problem you’re facing.”
– Jane McGonigal
