Call People Out On Their Shit

What I admire most about Handler is that she owns how she feels without hesitation. If someone says something she doesn’t agree with, they will know right away.

So, if someone says something that bothers you or hurts your feelings, tell them. Again, not easy, but you’ll be stronger for saying something.

*I don’t suggest doing this every day, but one time today, call someone out on something you don’t agree with.

“For conditioning we did a lot of jogging, sprinting, jump roping, and on-court basketball workouts. There are also hill workouts, sprinting with bands, and biking. The results were outstanding. Joakim gained 15 pounds of lean muscle and his strength increased dramatically.”

*Jog, sprint, jump rope, play basketball, sprint up hills, bicycle…that’s a full workout today.

SOUL

George Harrison 1943

To cultivate his deep devotion to Krishna (the Sanskrit name for God in human form), he would wake up early and perform yoga postures for half an hour or so. Then he’d sit quietly with prayer beads before an altar that he kept on the mantle over a large fireplace in his home in Friar Park, a few miles west of London. The altar contained small images of various deities and pictures of spiritual teachers whom he admired including Swami Vivekananda, Paramahansa Yogananda, and Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. For someone who lived at the apex of superstardom, his humility before more advanced souls was stunning.

*Chant: Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare, and be happy! 

MONEY

There’s a reason Carrot Top is worth $75 MILLION! 

His props are hilarious and his impressions are enough to make you wet your pants.

Carrot Top has so much money that he can donate 1 dollar to each citizen of Turkey.

*This falls into the finding your niche in life and making the most of it. Would you be willing to be a punchline for $75 million? Don’t hate the player, hate the game. There’s a reason why he’s worth $75 million. There’s a reason why I’m not – yet.

ENTERTAINMENT

These guys are not the cool kids. They are not the rich kids. They are just kids, on an adventure, taking care of each other. They give each other a hard time, but you never doubt that underneath it all, they love each other and they would not give up on each other. They fight not just for themselves, but for their entire neighborhood. And they win.

*Watch the classic Goonies while dining on carrot tops, and boozing like the Nature Boy. Whooo!

MASHUP -Contrary to popular belief, green carrot tops are indeed edible. I’ve long held onto the notion that carrot tops were poisonous and tossed these delicious and versatile greens for years. Who knew doing so was such a waste?! Here are three easy and completely brilliant ways to get the most out of your carrot tops, so you can both reduce food waste and introduce a unique green leaf vegetable to your diet. Enjoy!

https://www.organicauthority.com/eco-chic-table/3-carrot-top-recipes-because-carrot-greens-are-not-poisonous

Breakfast – carrot top green juice

Lunch – warm carrot top salad

Dinner – carrot top pesto over pasta

*Live off of these carrot top recipes and “The Nature Boy’s” daily intake of alcohol today. Of course this should not be done alone. Whoooooo!

BONUS: Use today to get a haircut. There’s some great birthday lettuce to inspire a new hairstyle. George Harrison, Joakim Noah, Carrot Top, and Ric Flair. Ask your stylist for a combination of all 4.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
