“You know what I learned as I got older? To give myself a break,” he said. “As long as I’m trying as hard as I can … you’re going to mess up and you’re not going to be perfect. It’s OK. … Everything’s OK.”

*Cut yourself some slack today. Everything’s OK. And if you need a good laugh, watch the birthday boy Jason Segel in Forgetting Sarah Marshall

BODY

Dave Bautista 1969

Batista does not care about his carbohydrates or calorie intake due to his highly intensive training. He follows a low fat high protein diet and avoids bread.

*Avoid bread today – see if you can go the entire day without eating any. Then train like Drax the Destroyer

SOUL

Daniel Webster 1782

He was asked what he regarded as the greatest thought that ever occupied his mind. He replied: “The sense of my individual responsibility to God.”

*Think about what your individual responsibility to God is. When times get tough, use this as your mantra: “God and I, now and forever, one and inseparable.”

MONEY

Ted DiBiase 1954

“Everybody has a price,”

*Be ready to leave this life with a legacy as someone who gives, not someone who takes. Be a person who cannot be bought. 

ENTERTAINMENT

Kevin Costner 1955 – watch Dances with Wolves

*As an American History teacher, I suggest that an entire course could be taught with nothing but Kevin Costner movies. Watch his shining jewel today and know that you are destined for something better in life.

FOOD

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.
