YOUR LIFE HAS VALUE DAY

MIND

“Good times should be orchestrated and not left to the uncertainties of chance,”

“Plan fun as seriously as work, for they are of equal importance to Well-Being.”

  1. ‘A FAREWELL TO ARMS’

A Farewell to Arms is all things perfect about the Hemingway style.

*Plan your fun as seriously as work today. Start reading A Farewell to Arms.

BODY

Sara Sampaio 1991

“I wanted to build more muscle, so I went on a protein heavy diet for the 10 days leading up to the show — no sugar, no carbs and no dairy. It definitely worked because I felt how strong my body was after those 10 days. It wasn’t easy though! I love pizza, bread, pasta and candy, so cutting all of that out was very hard.”

*No sugar, carbs, or dairy today – this might interfere with your Hemingway type fun. If nothing else, focus on going protein heavy today.

SOUL

Josh Hartnett 1978

Miracle on the Mountain is based on the true story of professional hockey player Eric LeMarque. He survives – physically and spiritually – after being stranded atop the High Sierra Nevada Mountains for eight days. He is forced to face his past and rediscovers his faith as he struggles to survive.

*Watch Josh Hartnett star in Miracle on the Mountain to rediscover your faith.

MONEY

Romeo Santos 1981

Romeo has the advantage of coming from two powerful worlds: the street savvy of the Bronx with his strong heritage of Dominican culture and music. He is bicultural; he is bilingual and not shy to demonstrate it.

*If you haven’t pursued speaking another language, today is the day. Just think of how it would open up job opportunities for you and of course benefit your business going forward. Que pasa?

ENTERTAINMENT

With spots that perhaps screamed sex more than Doritos, she quickly became very popular with a brand that is often marketed to young men.

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.
