“I was going to be good at whatever I did because I was going to put the time in, and the effort in, and I was going to make the sacrifices to be good.” Malone says, “I think by lifting weights, you get power. I also think that you get focus, direction, discipline, and patience.”

His poetry and prayers are gripping and unforgettable.  As Chief Dan George said; “…I am small and weak. I need your wisdom.  May I walk in beauty? Make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset. Make my hands respect the things that you have made, and my ears sharp to hear your voice.  Make me wise so that I may know the things that you have taught your children, the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock.  Make me strong not to be superior to my brothers but to fight my greatest enemy –myself.  Make me ever ready to come with you with straight eyes so that when life fades as with the fading sunset, my spirit will come to you without shame.”

*The above is your prayer for today. Say it word for word from your soul. This could be your “go to” prayer each and every day.

MONEY

“Do I allow public opinion to dictate my opinion and how I feel and what I want to give back to society? Hell no.”

Episode: “The Hamptons” (Season 5, Episode 21)

When the gang travels out to The Hamptons, Kramer inadvertently steals a commercial lobster trap. Everyone feasts on the find, except Jerry’s kosher girlfriend, Rachel, who resists temptation. But to seek revenge on her laughing at his tiny penis (he was in the pool), George serves Rachel scrambled eggs that have lobster in them.

*Don’t steal any lobsters to make Kramer’s lobster scrambled eggs. Other choices for Kramer would be to make your own pizza, and your own sauce without a shirt on.

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.
