Mortality and Bacon: Embracing Life to the Fullest

Mortality and Bacon: Embracing Life to the Fullest

Talking about death and mortality can be an uncomfortable topic for many of us. The fear of the unknown can hinder our ability to live life to the fullest. However, accepting our mortality can liberate us from living life with a constant sense of fear and help us appreciate every present moment. Here are five ways to embrace our mortality, savor life, and leave a meaningful legacy.

B - Believe in Yourself: Your beliefs shape your reality. Instead of worrying about what could happen in the future, focus on the present and your capabilities. Take a moment for yourself, meditate, or find what resonates with your deepest desires. Know that you have the power to make a difference, big or small. Believe in your abilities, and you will find the strength to face anything life throws at you.

A - Adventure is Out There: Life is too short to spend it all on one thing. Take a break from your routine and explore new experiences. These experiences create the chance to learn new things, meet new people, and build lasting memories. Make a Plan Pail (not a bucket list, check previous episodes) and check things off one by one. Whether it's just hiking a new trail, traveling to a new country, or trying something new, make sure it brings you joy.

C - Cherish Life's Moments: Every moment is an opportunity to create a profound experience. Take advantage of the small moments and enjoy the little things in life. Appreciate the sunset, savor your food, enjoy the smells of the flowers, and laugh with your loved ones. Life is in the details, so pay attention to them. Be present and be grateful for what life has to offer.

O - Open Communication: We've all heard the phrase, "communication is key." When it comes to our mortality, it's essential to have open communication with people we love. Share what matters to you and let them know how much they mean to you. Talk about your fears, hopes, and dreams, and make sure that you and your loved ones are on the same page. It may not be an easy conversation, but it's one worth having, so there are no regrets.

N - Now is the Time: Life is precious, and we never know when it's going to end. Don't wait until tomorrow to start living the life you want. Act now! Follow your heart, find your purpose, and make a difference. It's never too late, or too early, to start living your best possible life. Time is a gift, so use it wisely.

Our mortality may bring up fear, but it also gives us the opportunity to live life to the fullest. Understanding that our time is limited, we can embrace every moment and make it count. With a little BACON, we can build the courage to believe in ourselves, seek adventure, cherish the present, communicate openly, and start living life now. Don't wait for tomorrow, start creating a legacy today. Embrace life, always sizzle like bacon, and leave the world a better place than you found it.

Overcoming the Fear of Happiness with a little BACON!

Overcoming the Fear of Happiness with a little BACON!

Why is it that some people are afraid to be happy? It may seem like an irrational fear, but often, there are underlying issues that make it difficult for individuals to embrace joy and contentment in their lives. From feelings of unworthiness to fear of change, there are a variety of reasons why some people struggle with happiness. In this article, we'll explore five common reasons individuals may fear being happy, and how they can use a little BACON to overcome these fears and start living a genuinely content life.

B – Beliefs

One reason why some people are afraid to be happy is due to their beliefs about happiness. They may associate happiness with being selfish or indulgent or feel that they do not deserve to be happy. To overcome this fear, individuals need to challenge their beliefs and recognize that they are inherently deserving of happiness. They can do this by focusing on self-care, practicing gratitude, and recognizing that being happy does not make them a bad person.

A – Anxiety

Another reason some people fear happiness is because of anxiety associated with change. They may worry that if they allow themselves to be happy, their life will change in ways they cannot control. To alleviate this fear, individuals need to practice mindfulness and focus on the present moment. They should also recognize that change is a natural part of life and true happiness comes from being comfortable with it.

C – Control

Some individuals may fear happiness because it represents a loss of control. They may worry that if they are happy, they will lose their focus and drive. To overcome this fear, individuals should focus on setting clear goals and priorities. They should also recognize that being happy and productive are not mutually exclusive; in fact, happiness can actually increase productivity and motivation.

O – Overwhelm

Another reason why some people fear happiness is because they may feel overwhelmed by positive emotions. They may worry that being happy will lead to feelings of vulnerability or instability. To overcome this fear, individuals should practice emotional regulation and recognize that it is possible to experience positive emotions without being overwhelmed by them. They should also focus on developing healthy coping skills and creating a support system to help them manage their emotions.

N – Negativity

Finally, some individuals may fear happiness because they have internalized negative messaging about themselves or their lives. They may feel that they are not good enough or that they do not deserve to be happy. To overcome this fear, individuals should practice self-compassion and positive self-talk. They should also focus on surrounding themselves with positivity and avoiding negative self-talk or messages.

Although it may seem counterintuitive, many people are afraid of happiness. However, by recognizing the underlying reasons behind this fear, individuals can start to develop strategies to overcome it. Using a little BACON, individuals can challenge their beliefs, practice mindfulness, focus on goal setting, develop healthy coping skills, and practice self-compassion. By doing so, they can start living a truly content and joyful life. Remember, happiness is not a destination, it's a journey – so why not start embracing it today?

Ambition, Obsession, Happiness, & BACON: A Recipe for Fulfillment

Ambition, Obsession, Happiness, & BACON: A Recipe for Fulfillment

We all have goals and aspirations. We all want to achieve something or become someone. And it's only natural to go after these things strongly and eagerly. But sometimes, we end up feeling unfulfilled, unsatisfied, and unhappy, even after reaching our objectives. This is where ambition and obsession can lead us astray. However, instead of merely dismissing them and settling for mediocrity, we can learn how to balance them with contentment and gratitude. And what better way to illustrate this than with a serving of crispy, savory bacon?

B – Be Ambitious, but Not at the Cost of Your Well-Being

A – Avoid Obsessing Over Perfection

C – Choose Moments of Contentment and Joy

O – Overcome Obstacles and Adversities

N – Nurture Your Relationships and Connections

Ambition and obsession can be both a blessing and a curse. They can drive us to great accomplishments and personal growth, but they can also make us miss out on the present and neglect our overall well-being. Therefore, it is crucial to balance them with contentment, gratitude, and human connections. We can choose to live a life that is both purposeful and fulfilling, without burning out or sacrificing our happiness. And what better way to celebrate this balance than with a slice of delicious, crispy bacon that fills you up with joy and satisfaction?

Fear of Offending and Bacon!

Fear of Offending and Bacon!

In today's world, there is a growing fear of offending others due to political correctness. Unfortunately, this fear has caused a shift in how we communicate and interact with others. We are so scared of being judged or hurting someone's feelings that we keep our thoughts and emotions bottled up inside. However, it's important to embrace diversity and be empathetic towards others. Here are 5 things to consider when expressing yourself. By implementing these tips, we can create a more open environment where we understand each other better and find happiness in our daily lives.

B – Be mindful of your words

Every word we say has an impact, whether we realize it or not. It's essential to think before we speak and understand the impact our words can have on others. Offending someone doesn't necessarily mean you're a bad person, but rather that your words may have caused hurt unintentionally. Being mindful of the words we choose can help avoid misunderstandings and create a more positive environment.

A – Acknowledge different perspectives

No two people are the same, and everyone sees the world through their own eyes. It's important to embrace different perspectives and understand that people have different views on various topics. Instead of pushing people that don't agree with you, try, and acknowledge the other person's perspective. Doing so will help you understand why someone thinks a certain way, and it could lead to a positive change in how you view different issues.

C – Choose your battles

Not every disagreement needs to be a battle that needs to be won. We all have different opinions and that is okay. Instead of nitpicking over every minor detail, some discussions require deep thinking and a healthy exchange of ideas. When it comes to controversial topics, focus on the bigger picture and how you can form meaningful conversations instead of personal attacks.

O – Offer empathy

One of the best ways to connect with someone is by showing empathy. Empathy is the ability to understand a person's emotions and feelings, regardless of whether or not we agree with them. Try to place yourself in their shoes and see why they might feel that way. By developing empathy, we can build a deeper connection with others and form stronger relationships.

N – Never give up

Finally, it's important to never give up on expressing yourself. Though it can be challenging to put yourself out there, being genuine and true to yourself is always worth it. Whether it's through conversation or pursuit of a passion, continuing to express yourself can lead to growth, self-discovery, and a more fulfilling life.

By implementing these ideas, you can create a more positive environment for yourself and those around you. Remember to be mindful of your words, acknowledge different perspectives, choose your battles, offer empathy, and never give up on expressing yourself. Life is short; don't let fear and self-doubt keep you from embracing who you are and sharing your unique perspective with the world. By doing so, you may just find that you bring people together and foster meaningful connections that last a lifetime.

Happiness, Being Weird, and Bacon!

Happiness, Being Weird, and Bacon!

It's easy to feel like we need to fit in with the crowd or be like everyone else. But the truth is that true happiness can only come when we embrace our weirdness and be true to ourselves. It's time to break free from the mold and find the joy in being unique. Here are just five ways to find happiness in being different, using a little BACON. So, let’s grab a slice of life and start sizzling!

B - Be Confident in Yourself: The first step to finding happiness in being different is to have confidence in yourself. You must believe in yourself and your abilities. Embrace your quirks and what makes you different from others. Remember, your uniqueness is what sets you apart from the crowd. When you have confidence in yourself, you will begin to attract positive energy and opportunities that align with your values and passions.

A - Accept Your Flaws: No one is perfect, not even the people you may idolize. We all have our flaws and imperfections. When you embrace your flaws and accept them as a part of who you are, you'll begin to live a more meaningful life. Your flaws make you human, and they also make you interesting. Learn to love yourself and your quirks and be proud of who you are.

C - Connect with Like-minded People: Don't be afraid to connect with people who share similar interests and passions. Whether it's finding a hobby group or joining an online community, connecting with like-minded people can help you feel less alone and give you a sense of belonging. When you surround yourself with people who accept your quirks and celebrate your uniqueness, you'll begin to feel more confident in yourself.

O - Open Your Mind to New Experiences: If you always stick to the same routine, you'll never have the opportunity to embrace new experiences and opportunities. Open your mind to new things, whether it's trying a new food or exploring a new city. Stepping out of your comfort zone can help you grow as a person and give you a new perspective on life. You may even discover new things you didn't know about yourself!

N - Never Give Up on Yourself: Lastly, remember to never give up on yourself. It's easy to get discouraged and feel like giving up but remember that true happiness comes from being true to yourself. Keep pushing forward, no matter how hard life can get. You are capable of achieving great things and making a positive impact on the world.

In the end, embracing your weirdness and being true to yourself is the key to finding true happiness. Whether you use BACON or not, remember to always have confidence in yourself, accept your flaws, connect with like-minded people, open your mind to new experiences, and never give up on yourself. Being different is what makes you unique and interesting, and the world needs more individuals who are confident in their uniqueness. So go out there, embrace your weirdness, and enjoy the amazing adventure that is life!

Take a moment to reflect on what makes you unique. Embrace your weirdness and celebrate your quirks. Then, share this post with someone who might need a little reminder to be true to themselves. Let's spread the message of confidence and self-love to those who need it most!

A DOSE of Happiness: The Science Behind the Happiness Hormones

A DOSE of Happiness: The Science Behind the Happiness Hormones

Have you ever felt like your happiness is out of your control? You're not alone. Many people struggle with feeling content and joyful in their everyday lives. However, what if I told you that you have the power to take control of your emotional wellness? It's true! Within your body, there are hormones that influence how you feel. By understanding these hormones and how to release them, you can improve your emotional well-being and establish positive feelings more regularly. Let's explore the science behind happiness and discover how you can start taking control of your own happiness.

Dopamine - Known as the "feel-good" hormone, dopamine is responsible for rewarding positive experiences and encouraging pleasure-seeking behavior. To increase dopamine levels, try setting goals and achieving them. This can be something as simple as finishing a task at work or completing a workout. Another way to boost dopamine is through physical exercise. When you exercise, your brain releases dopamine, creating a natural high that can improve your mood and overall well-being.

Oxytocin - Often referred to as the "love hormone," oxytocin plays a crucial role in social bonding and trust. To increase oxytocin levels, focus on building meaningful relationships with loved ones. Simple, everyday actions like hugging, holding hands, or even just spending quality time with someone can stimulate oxytocin release. Additionally, acts of kindness towards others, such as volunteering or donating to a charity, can also increase oxytocin levels and create a sense of fulfillment.

Serotonin - This hormone is responsible for regulating mood, appetite, and sleep. To increase serotonin levels, try spending time in the sun. Sunlight exposure increases vitamin D production, which plays a crucial role in serotonin synthesis. Additionally, practicing mindfulness, meditation, or other stress-reducing activities can also help boost serotonin levels. Finally, getting enough sleep is crucial for healthy serotonin levels, so make sure you prioritize rest and sleep hygiene.

Endorphins - These hormones act as natural painkillers and are responsible for the "runner's high" feeling during exercise. To increase endorphin release, try engaging in physical activity, such as running, dancing, or weightlifting. Laughter is another way to boost endorphins, so make sure to prioritize enjoyable activities with friends and loved ones.

In addition to understanding these hormones, there are other activities you can incorporate into your daily life to improve your emotional well-being. One such activity is grounding, also known as earthing. Grounding involves connecting with the earth's natural electrons by walking barefoot outside, using grounding tools, or spending time in nature. This practice has been shown to reduce inflammation, improve sleep, and reduce stress levels. Additionally, practicing gratitude and focusing on the positive aspects of life can help shift your mindset towards a more positive, content state.

It's important to remember that our emotions are not out of our control. Through understanding the hormones that influence our feelings, we can take active steps towards improving our emotional well-being and establishing positivity in our lives. Whether it's through setting goals and achieving them, building meaningful relationships, spending time in nature, or practicing mindfulness, there are countless ways to take control of our happiness. So, go ahead and take the reins on your emotional wellness. Your happiness is worth it.

With special guests: Luke and Nate

What's your favorite Time Travel Movie?

Time travel has always been a topic of fascination and intrigue for human beings. The idea of traveling to a different era, witnessing historical events, or experiencing futuristic possibilities can be exciting. But beyond the fantasy and science fiction allure, what impact could time travel have on our happiness? Could visiting another time period make us happier?

A - Acceptance: Time travel may also lead to looking back with regret or looking forward with anxiety. Through acceptance of the present moment and gratitude for what we have, we can find happiness if we choose.

C - Curiosity: Our desire to explore and understand the unknown drives us to seek time-traveling experiences. Through curiosity, we may discover an appreciation for our present life or find inspiration to create a better future.

O - Opportunity: Time travel may offer an opportunity to learn from the past, experience the present, or develop new perspectives for the future. Through these opportunities, we may find happiness in growth and learning.

N - Now: The present moment is all we truly have control over. While time travel may offer the possibility of seeing past or future events, the present moment is where we can fully experience joy and happiness.

Apart from pondering time travel, there are several things we can do in the present to enhance our happiness. Here are five simple things to try:

• Practice mindfulness: By being present and focused in the moment, we can reduce stress and increase overall happiness.

The Joy of Being Selfish: Why Taking Care of Yourself Should Come First (with Bacon)

The Joy of Being Selfish: Why Taking Care of Yourself Should Come First (with Bacon)

With Special Guest Joe Janicki

Many of us have grown up with the notion that being "selfish" is a bad thing. We're taught that putting others first is what makes us good people and that we should always say "yes" to requests from friends, family, and colleagues. But the truth is, always putting others before yourself can lead to burnout, resentment, and even a decline in mental and physical health. It's important to take care of yourself and adopt some healthy selfish habits for a happier, more fulfilling life.

Be honest about your needs: It's essential to know what you need in order to prioritize self-care and avoid burnout. If you're constantly saying "yes" to others and neglecting your own needs, it's time to reassess your priorities. Take time to check in with yourself and ask what you need in the moment, whether it's rest, time, or a boundary.

Learn to say "no": Saying "no" can be challenging, but it's one of the most crucial habits to cultivate when it comes to maintaining healthy boundaries. It's okay to decline requests or invitations that don't align with your needs or goals, and it's crucial to your mental and emotional health to do so.

Practice self-compassion: Self-compassion is all about treating yourself with kindness and understanding instead of berating yourself for mistakes or perceived failures. It's important to cultivate self-compassion and extend that same kindness and care towards yourself as you would a close friend or loved one.

Set boundaries: Setting boundaries is essential when it comes to protecting your time, energy, and emotional well-being. Boundaries can be as simple as deciding not to check your work email after hours or as complex as ending a toxic relationship. The key is to identify what's important to you and make decisions that honor your values and well-being.

Invest in yourself: Investing in yourself can take many forms, from taking a class to improve your skillset, to practicing self-care routines that promote relaxation and rejuvenation. Whatever form it takes, investing in yourself is crucial to living a fulfilling life and maintaining a healthy sense of selfishness.

How to do it with BACON:

B - Breathe

A - Affirm

C - Create

O - Organize

N - Nourish

Becoming a little "selfish" can actually lead to greater happiness, compassion, and fulfillment. By prioritizing your needs, setting healthy boundaries, and investing in yourself, you'll actually be able to give back more to the people and causes that matter to you. So, give yourself permission to prioritize self-care and let go of any guilt or shame around being "selfish." You deserve it!

How Practicing Stoicism (with BACON) Can Bring Us Happiness

How Practicing Stoicism (with BACON) Can Bring Us Happiness

Bacon Bits with Master Happiness with special guest Mike Begra

Stoicism, an ancient philosophy founded in Athens, Greece, by a philosopher named Zeno, has become increasingly popular in modern times as a way to find inner peace, control our emotions, and bring more happiness into our lives. This philosophy focuses on the idea that we should not let our emotions control our lives or our reactions to external circumstances, but instead, we should use our rational minds to control our thoughts and actions. In other words, stoicism can help us find calmness and clarity in a chaotic, stressful world. So, how can we start practicing stoicism? Here are five ways with a little help from BACON!

B - Be Mindful of Your Thoughts and Reactions

The first step to becoming more stoic in our daily lives is to be mindful of our thoughts and reactions to external events. When something happens that triggers a negative emotion, instead of reacting impulsively, take a moment to pause and reflect on the situation. Ask yourself: is this something I can control or not? If it’s not within your control, accept it and focus on what you can control: your own thoughts and actions.

A - Accept Change and Impermanence

One of the fundamental teachings of stoicism is the acceptance of the impermanence of everything in life. Nothing lasts forever, and everything changes. Stoicism teaches us to embrace this reality and to accept change as a natural part of life. When we come to terms with the fleeting nature of all things, we are less likely to get attached to material possessions, relationships, or even our own thoughts and feelings. This acceptance can lead to greater peace and happiness in our lives.

C - Cultivate Self-Discipline

Stoicism also emphasizes the importance of cultivating self-discipline and self-control. This means developing a sense of inner strength and resolve that enables us to withstand difficult situations without succumbing to negative emotions or impulses. Self-discipline can take many forms, from setting and sticking to personal goals to practicing self-care and healthy habits. By building this skill, we can become more resilient and better equipped to handle life’s challenges.

O - Practice Gratitude and Appreciation

Stoicism teaches us to appreciate the present moment and find joy in the simple things in life. By practicing gratitude and appreciation, we can shift our focus away from the negative aspects of life and instead focus on the good. Take time each day to reflect on the things you are grateful for, no matter how small they may seem. It could be as simple as enjoying a cup of coffee or spending time with loved ones.

N - Nourish Your Relationships

As social creatures, human beings crave connection and relationships with others. Stoicism emphasizes the importance of nourishing these relationships and treating others with kindness and compassion. By cultivating positive relationships, we can find joy and meaning in our lives, even in difficult times. Try to connect with friends and loved ones regularly, and practice empathy and understanding in all your interactions.

Practicing stoicism can be a powerful tool for finding more happiness and inner peace in our lives. By being mindful of our thoughts and reactions, accepting impermanence, cultivating self-discipline, practicing gratitude, and nourishing our relationships, we can live a more fulfilling life. So, why not give it a try? Use a little BACON as a guide and see how it can bring more happiness into your life. Remember, it’s not about controlling external circumstances, but instead, it’s about finding inner clarity, strength, and purpose. Give yourself the gift of stoicism and see what it can do for you.

Embracing the Never-Ending Evolution of Life with BACON!

Embracing the Never-Ending Evolution of Life with BACON!

Change is constant and inevitable in life. It can be daunting and challenging to accept the fact that everything around us is in a constant state of flux. However, it is essential to learn how to welcome change and embrace the evolution of all things. Finding happiness, growth, and insight in change is possible. Instead of fearing the uncertainties of what the future holds, we can learn to appreciate the ceaseless revolution that life is. Let’s explore how to acknowledge the evolution of life and find peace in its steady rhythm. Let’s discuss how to harness the power of continuous change, using a little BACON, and open ourselves to an even greater level of contentment.

B - Be Passionate

Passion is a powerful motivator because it drives us forward even when we feel like giving up or don’t know where else to turn for inspiration. When we have passion for something, we believe in ourselves more deeply , which helps us stay focused on reaching our goals no matter how hard they may seem at times .

A - Accept Uncertainty: Accepting that life is full of uncertainties is vital to living a life that embraces change truly. Change can be intimidating, especially when it comes to the unknown. However, accepting the unpredictable nature of life can help you manage your expectations, stay optimistic, and take risks. The next time you feel anxious about the future, remind yourself that uncertainty is an inevitable part of life, and that you are capable of adapting and thriving no matter what may come.

C - Challenge Yourself: Embracing change means stepping out of your comfort zone. It's essential to challenge yourself to try new things, learn new skills, and pursue your passions. Doing so will help you expand your horizons and uncover new opportunities for growth. Push yourself to take calculated risks and trust the process. You never know what lies ahead on your journey, so embrace the challenge and see where it takes you.

O - Openness and Flexibility: Life is full of changes, and it's essential to remain open and flexible. There will be times when things don't go as planned, but that doesn't mean that there isn't something to be learned or gained from the experience. Embrace the unknown and be prepared to adapt to change. Having an open mind can help you view the world with fresh eyes and gain new perspectives.

N - Never Stop Learning: Finally, continuous learning is the key to embracing the never-ending evolution of all things. The world is constantly changing, and staying updated with new information and skills can help you navigate life's twists and turns more smoothly. Try to learn something new every day, whether it's a new language, skill, or hobby. By continuously learning, you'll be better equipped to handle whatever the future holds.

Embracing the evolution of life means embracing the natural progression of things and allowing yourself to grow from it.

Building a Strong Relationship with Your Spouse with a little BACON!

Building a Strong Relationship with Your Spouse with a little BACON!

Marriage is a beautiful institution that requires an immense amount of effort and dedication. It is a bond that grows and evolves with time, and with the right mindset and approach, it can be the most rewarding and fulfilling experience of your life. But building a strong and healthy relationship with your spouse takes more than just love and affection. It takes hard work and a deep understanding of what your partner needs and expects from you. Applying a little BACON is one such approach that can help you build a stronger, more fulfilling relationship with your spouse.

B - Build Trust: The foundation of any strong relationship is trust. Building trust requires honesty, openness, and transparency. You need to be truthful with your partner, communicate your feelings and emotions honestly, and make sure that your actions line up with your words. Trust is not something that can be built overnight, but it can be lost in a heartbeat. So, it's essential to nurture it every day through small actions and gestures that show your partner that you value them and their feelings.

A - Appreciate Each Other: When you appreciate your partner and show gratitude for the things they do, you build a positive and supportive environment that fosters love and growth. Appreciation doesn't have to be limited to grand gestures or expensive gifts. It can be something as simple as a heartfelt compliment, a small note, or even a hug. The more you appreciate your partner, the more they will feel loved and valued, which will encourage them to reciprocate this feeling towards you.

C - Communicate Effectively: The key to any successful relationship is communication. Effective communication requires active listening, empathy, and understanding. You need to be able to hear your partner's perspective without judgment and respond in a way that takes their feelings into account. Communication is not just about talking, but also about conveying your emotions and feelings in a way that your partner can understand. It takes practice to communicate effectively, but it's an essential skill to have if you want to build a strong and healthy relationship with your spouse.

O - Overcome Challenges Together: Every relationship has its ups and downs, and it's how you deal with the challenges that define your relationship. Overcoming challenges requires teamwork, support, and perseverance. You need to work together to find a solution that works for both of you. When you face problems as a team, you build a sense of solidarity and trust that strengthens your relationship. Remember, challenges and obstacles are a natural part of life, and facing them together can make your bond even stronger.

N - Nurture Your Relationship: A strong and healthy relationship requires ongoing effort and commitment. You need to take the time to nurture your relationship regularly. This means dedicating time to connect with your partner, plan dates, and engage in activities that you both enjoy. You should also make sure to prioritize your relationship over other commitments and provide emotional and physical support to each other. Building a strong and healthy relationship requires investment, but the rewards are well worth it.

Building a strong and healthy relationship with your spouse is one of the most rewarding experiences life has to offer, but it's not always easy. By applying a little BACON you can create a framework for building a strong and fulfilling relationship with your partner by focusing on the key elements necessary to create trust, appreciation, effective communication, overcoming challenges, and nurturing your relationship. If you're willing to put in the effort and commitment, these tips can help provide a roadmap to building a strong and loving relationship. So, take the first step, choose to invest in your relationship, and use a little BACON to build a bond that will last a lifetime.
