“Love is the one thing in life that I think is the biggest determinant of happiness, and it’s the thing you have the least control over. Are you going to meet this person? I was 35 when I met him. It wasn’t obvious that it was going to happen for me. And I wasn’t willing or excited about the idea of getting married or having a family in the absence of that.”

*If you haven’t found love yet, don’t settle for anything less than you deserve.


Warwick Davis 1970

What do you most dislike about your appearance?
“I have a positive outlook. Sometimes I feel my face carries too much weight. When I notice it around my jawline, I watch what I eat.”

Davis was born with the condition spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenital (SED), which caused his dwarfism.

*Appreciate the body that you have and if your face is carrying too much weight, watch what you eat.


Maura Tierney 1965

“It’s been a slow burn for me in terms of figuring things out. I think having the cancer has changed me. I’m more bossy and more easy-going at the same time. I say what I want and less stuff bugs me now. I was never uptight, but I used to worry a lot. It turns out, no matter how much you worry you can’t control things. Also, I don’t want to waste time.”

*Don’t waste time by worrying about anything today.

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.
