When Faced With Setbacks, Will You Stop or Move Forward?

Dr. King was arrested upwards of 20 times, his home bombed, and he was subject to a near constant stream of harassment and violence. Despite this, he used every setback and threat as an opportunity to reflect and act.

*Are you hitting a wall with 365DOLF? Two weeks into the new year and you may be over it. Try to remember why you started “Living Famously” in the first place. Today is a great reminder to persevere. To keep moving forward. It’s easy to quit on January 15, but think how you’ll feel on December 15. Continue down that road to becoming a better person.

“Just put on your gym clothes and go. Push yourself to work out, even if you lack motivation. Just do it! Once you are there, you are in it and you will make it happen. And the awesome part is: YOU WILL NEVER REGRET DOING A WORKOUT!”

*Put on your gym clothes and drive to the gym right now. Sometimes this is the hardest part of working out.

“I would take brownies and make them into little balls and dip them in ranch. Don’t judge me! That sounds like the worst, most disgusting thing in the world, but it’s unbelievable. It’s unmatched.”

“A cream cheese bagel with rainbow sprinkles on it,” “You’ll lose your mind. It’s so good. My dad used to make it for me. It’s like a weird childhood snack, and I just never questioned it.”

*For a snack, enjoy brownie and ranch cake pops and/or sprinkles on your cream cheese bagel

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.
