“As long as you have the option to do the right thing why not do that?”

*You will have the option to do the right thing today. Do that.

The drink: Hines’s favorite drink:  low-fat chocolate milk. It has the right mix of carbs and protein to refuel exhausted muscles and fluids and electrolytes to replenish.

*Pick a workout that you like and refuel afterwards with chocolate milk. Just like the greatest Korean player in the history of the NFL- Hines Ward. Go Steelers!

“I did a lot of reading and a lot of my own study,”

“I wanted to make sure my faith was my own and not something I simply inherited. It’s not a matter of really questioning your faith, but questioning what you believe and why you believe.”

*Great advice from the voice of NBC News. Maybe you’re happy with your religion. Maybe you’ve enjoyed practicing the same religion as your parents. But take today to question what you believe and why you believe it.

*If still unsure, take the above religion test to see what you should be practicing.

When it came time to doing the dishes, Cochrane really didn’t want to, so she invented a machine to wash them for her.

*List all of the things that you hate doing. Then brainstorm a way for each item to be done for you. Make a fortune.

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.
