“IT REALLY IS JUST ALL ABOUT PRESS-UPS EVERY DAY. I’LL AIM TO DO AROUND 50 FIRST THING IN THE MORNING, AND LOADS MORE THROUGHOUT THE DAY.”

*Start your day with 50 (Shades of Grey) push-ups. See how many more you can work in throughout the day. Ask a special someone for a couples workout tonight.

“I remember the teacher telling me I should not even try acting. I still have the report card where she was like, ‘You will never be an actor. Your voice is horrible.’ That was the best thing that ever happened to me because I was like, ‘I’ll show you’.”

*Let someone know that they were the best thing that has ever happened to you.

Jarvis insisted Mother’s Day “to be a day of sentiment, not profit.” Jarvis soon soured on the commercial interests associated with the day.

*Mother’s Day will be here soon. Shop for her today and make your plans to spend the big day with her, not spending a fortune on her. She won’t mind.

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.
