“A conscience is what hurts when all your other parts feel so good.”

*Have a bad memory today. Clear your conscience and make all your other parts feel so good.

“The best fitness tip I’ve received is to take care of your body before and after hard workouts. It’s important to stretch and address any injuries as soon as they happen.”

*Here is your reminder to take care of your body by stretching before and after each workout, and address any injuries that you’ve been putting off. Play basketball today and dominate like the Greek Freak.

God chose Ryan, an average boy from an average town in Middle America, to do his work—to be an example in the face of ignorance and prejudice and fear, and to sow compassion in the heart of the nation.

*God will chose you to do his work. Are you listening?

MONEY

“Ducks Nation — I’ll see you next year. Let’s see some packed houses.

Kobe — I’ll see you next year, too. Hope you keep watching.

And WNBA — I’ll see you soon. Real soon, I promise.

Just have some business to take care of first.”

*Make sure you take care of personal business before you dedicate your life to actual business.

CROSSOVER: SOUL – Also remember that tomorrow is promised to no one. RIP Kobe

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.
