Pondering what to do, Nero had an idea.  Rome would remain the capital, but he would take advantage of the fire’s destruction to start again.  The city had to be rebuilt – why not make it truly magnificent?

*Act decisively today. Take advantage of any setbacks as an opportunity to rebuild and make the situation truly magnificent. Sometimes it’s best to “blow it up and start over”


Jesse Lingard 1992

“Never been so proud… [the] change in 6 weeks is just exceptional, it just shows you what positivity does”, as Lingard lifts weights and does press-ups in the gym.

*You should be proud of yourself. You’ve been working out for almost an entire year and the change should be exceptional. Continue to be positive and do this Jesse Lingard chest workout.

He donated $100,000 and raised an additional $150,000 over a two-week period to assist residents of Puerto Rico after the island was ravaged by Hurricane Maria last fall.

Norman was named a “community MVP” by the NFL Players Association, which made a $10,000 contribution to a charity of his choice.

His Starz24 Foundation raised money to provide middle school students in DC with backpacks and school supplies and raised $100,000 for additional outreach programs.

But Norman doesn’t want credit. He wants help.

*Josh Norman is disappointed and he doesn’t want credit. He wants help. Think of donating to his Starz24 Foundation to help children in need.

No one had more swagger in the Reagan era than Don Johnson. As Miami Vice‘s Sonny Crockett, the undercover detective who lived on a houseboat with his pet alligator Elvis, he embodied masculine cool in the era of coke binges and Lamborghinis.

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.
