By definition, the word “sober” sounds boring. Since we generally use the word sober as relating to alcohol, does that mean anybody who doesn’t drink is boring? Of course not. Val reframes the idea of “sober” and explains why we aren’t necessarily sober simply because we don’t drink or use other substances.

For the second part of this episode, Val discusses fostering community connections. When searching for a place to live, it’s common to admire a home for its beautiful flooring and spacious kitchen, but how about a common area where people can gather? A yard, park, or even neighborhood shared space can allow families and friendships to grow. In order for community connections to develop, we must lay the groundwork.
