Look for the * for today’s advice.

MEMORIAL DAY

MIND

Henry Kissinger 1923

But unlike his fellow Republicans of the Cold War era—dull and practical men of business, blissfully unaware of what the prestigious intellectual journals of opinion had to say about them—Kissinger has always been painfully conscious of the de­gree to which he is loathed.

*Be aware of what people think of you. Don’t care but be aware.

Andre 3000’s diet includes a lot of fruits, vegetables, legumes, and grains. An example of his diet plan for a day includes the following:

  • Breakfast: ¾ cup whole grain cereal and soy or rice milk with ¾ cup of fruit of your choice or 1 cup of Toasted Apple cinnamon cereal and almond milk (recipes in Thrive) with ½ cup fruit of your choice.
  • Lunch: Vega fruit dip (slices of apple, banana, orange) 1/3 serving Natural Vega, 1/3 serving Chocolate Vega Whole Food Health Optimizer, ½ tbsp hemp seeds. Mix Vega and hemp seeds together, dip fruit in and eat.
  • Snack:3 fresh dates with hemp butter or 1 65 gram Rejuvenator Brownie (recipe in Thrive).
  • Dinner: 3 cup mixed greens, with ½ cup broccoli, ¼ chick peas, ¼ avocado and ½ tbsp hemp oil mixed with 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar (or ginger papaya salad dressing, recipe in Thrive).and dulse strips.
  • Snack: 1 apple, 1/3 serving of Vega with ½ cup cold water.

*Follow this eating plan today. Watch Outkast videos for motivation. This would be a good daily plan to follow throughout the year. The trick is to find all of these foods.

SOUL

Rachel Carson 1907

Then there’s a cartoon from the 1960s, portraying a praying mantis with its front legs folded up, praying, saying “God bless momma and poppa…and Rachel Carson!”

*Rachel Carson may have saved more souls than anyone. You don’t need to be a religious leader to save souls. You can save some today, if you’d like.

MONEY

Cornelius Vanderbilt 1794

With $100 borrowed from his parents, Cornelius Vanderbilt purchased a periauger (a flat-bottomed sailing barge) and began a ferry service between Staten Island and Manhattan.

At the time of his death in 1877, the Commodore was worth $105 million, a larger sum than in the United States Treasury at the time.

*If you haven’t started your business yet, take $100 (borrowed from your parents, if need be) and use it to start your business. Even if it is securing a domain name – anything to get the ship moving.

ENTERTAINMENT

Christopher Lee 1922 – watch Count Dracula

Christopher Frank Carandini Mothafuckin’ Lee WAS Dracula. He played the bloodsucking impaling-happy non-sparkling Wallachian Count in the most perfect Dracula movie ever made, Horror of Dracula, then reprised the role in seven sequels over the next 15 years – giving an entire generation of humanity nightmares for life, coating himself in a swimming pools worth of fake movie blood, and somehow managing to constantly surround himself with ridiculous concentrations of hot babes with twin puncture wounds on the sides of their necks and borderline-pornographic amounts of blood-stained cleavage.

He’s also a 6’5″ tall world champion fencer, speaks six languages, does all of his own stunts, has participated in more on-screen sword fights than any actor in history, served for five years defending democracy from global fascism as a British Commando blowing the shit out of Nazi asses in World War II, and became the oldest person to ever record lead vocals on a heavy metal track when, at the age of 88, he wrote, performed on, and released a progressive symphonic power metal EP about the life of Charlemagne (because why the fuck not?).

*Watch the very impressive Christopher Lee as Count Dracula – Halloween is only 5 months away.

*Listen to Outkast while making Jamie Oliver’s Christmas Carbonara. This flies in the face of Andre 3000’s meal plan for today, but Christmas is less than 7 months away.

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.
