Look for the * for today’s advice.
FIRST LADY DAY
Martha Washington 1731
Just as her husband realized that his every action might set a precedent for future presidents, so Martha, too, was aware that her behavior as first lady would become the template for the wives of future chief executives. One of her most important steps was to initiate a weekly reception, held on Friday evenings, for anyone who would like to attend.
*Realize that your behavior may be the template for someone today, and act accordingly.
Abby Wambach 1980 – mountain bike
“I like to run, watch-free. I also love to mountain bike in our off-season — going downhill gives me an adrenaline rush!”
*I live in Florida so going downhill doesn’t happen very often, but the good news is there’s not a lot of uphill battles either. Run, watch-free, or go mountain biking today. Play soccer later.
Wayne Brady 1972
Following Williams’ death by hanging in August, Brady took to Twitter to express his grief.
“Depression is real,” he wrote. “God Bless Him and his family.”
Now that he’s opened up about his own battle with depression, Brady is grateful for the outpouring of support he’s received.
*I too battle depression every day. Creating 365DOLF helps a lot. Find what helps you and be passionate about it.
I wish I could reach out to let Wayne Brady know that my dad never missed his show – Let’s Make a Deal, while on his deathbed.
Andy Cohen 1968
Andy Cohen is a man that defies labeling. He is the multi-hyphenate extraordinaire. He is a producer, a talk show host, a writer, and a high-level television producer. He basically is the Bravo television network.
All in all, Andy’s net worth is about $10 million.
*Defy labels. Be a multi-hyphenated extraordinaire.
Jerry Mathers 1948 – watch Leave it to Beaver
June: “Ward, I’m very worried about the Beaver.”
Focus attention on urgent issues. Beating around the bush won’t do. June you must face up to the issue and address it immediately.
*Don’t beat around the bush or worry about being too hard on the Beaver. Just watch a few episodes of Leave it to Beaver instead.
Justin Long 1978 – spicy lobster linguine
Martha Stewart and actor Justin Long prepare spicy lobster linguine.
*Enjoy this spicy lobster linguini while watching Justin Long in Tusk – you may lose your appetite.
