Look for the * for today’s advice.

EBAY DAY

MIND

Jean-Paul Sartre 1905

Sartre and De Beauvoir applied their principle of freedom, above all, to their own partnership, a magnificently successful one that lasted half a century from its beginning in 1929 to Sartre’s death in 1980. They wanted to share their lives but didn’t want to accept conventional limitations, so they agreed to remain primary partners while indulging in polyamory with others.

*Don’t accept conventional limitations today.

BODY

Jane Russell had a lauded hourglass figure. She reportedly hated diets and never counted calories, only opting to cut alcoholic drinks if she ever needed to give up anything. To slim down, she practiced enjoyable routines such as hula hooping, archery, swimming, tennis, skiing, golf and dancing.

*No booze today and pick one of the following enjoyable routines – hula hooping, archery, swimming, tennis, skiing, golf, or dancing.

SOUL

Much more important for any lover of freedom, however, is the manner in which he went about his defiance. He acted peacefully, openly, with total dedication to principle. He took responsibility for speaking the truth. He did it with a clean conscience. He has been willing to face the consequences for his actions.

*Inspire others with your work ethic. Show them how it should be done, instead of just telling them to get it done.

“Don’t be a turd. If you are strong, be a protector. If you are smart, be a humble influencer. Strength and intelligence can be weapons, so do not wield them against the weak. That makes you a bully. Be bigger than that.”

CROSSOVER – Soul – “Learn to pray. It’s easy, and it is so good for your soul.”

*Watch Jurassic World, pray, and don’t be turd today.

In his speech, William, who is expecting his third child with the Duchess, recalled visiting a homeless shelter with his mother when he was young. At the time, Diana explained to her son why the people he met there mattered and “why no society can be healthy unless we take other people seriously.”

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.
