Scan for the * for today’s advice.
Ashley Judd 1968
Judd learned that she was using sleep to deal with uncomfortable feelings and that her habit of wiping down plastic surfaces on planes and hotels was all about control.
“Now I try to remind myself that if I engage in perfectionism, I am abusing myself.”
*Don’t try to be perfect today. Just be the best that you can.
Maria Sharapova 1987
In addition to typically working out, she also does a myriad of other outdoor exercises. Core strengthening, yoga, salsa classes, and biking are some of the exercises which she does. Recovery through rest is as important as exercises are. Maria practices workouts six days a week and relaxes her body through body massage and spa at least once a month. She also meditates for five minutes a day to purge stress.
*Get a massage to purge stress today. You’ve worked hard. You deserve it.
Troy Polamalu 1981
His journey for worship and further understanding of his faith has taken him to Greece, Turkey and beyond. In fact, when Coach Mike Tomlin took over the Steelers in 2007, Polamalu missed Tomlin’s first camp because he was abroad in his worship and studies.
*Where has your journey for worship taken you? Take today to look into a trip abroad to further your understanding of your faith.
Dudley Moore 1935 – watch Arthur
At the finale, far from wanting both money and love, Arthur specifically rejects his inheritance to break off the wedding and marry Linda.
*Would you give up a millionaire’s inheritance for true love?
Kate Hudson 1979 – watch Almost Famous
You should call your mom more often. Because even when she’s livid that you’ve left her house at the age of 15 to tour with a rock band and try to become a journalist, she still loves you.
*Call your mom right now. Then watch Almost Famous.
James Franco 1978 – (Yes, he was born 1 day before 4/20) Korean BBQ Lasagna
For a few years, James Franco was everywhere: Hosting the Oscars. Getting college degrees. Teaching college courses. Directing movies. Acting in movies. Writing about movies. Making art. Writing novels. Starting a band. Every now and then, he would penetrate the mainstream, with commercial releases like “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” and “The Interview.” By and large, however, the affable face from “Freaks and Geeks,” Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man” movies, and “127 Hrs” had grown so ubiquitous it had become difficult to discern the big picture.
