ADOPT A GORILLA DAY
Susan Sontag 1933
“You’ll notice that I haven’t talked about love. Or about happiness. I’ve talked about becoming — or remaining — the person who can be happy, a lot of the time, without thinking that being happy is what it’s all about. It’s not.”
*Don’t focus on love or happiness. Instead, focus on becoming a person who can be happy, a lot of the time, without thinking that being happy is what it’s all about.
Albert Pujols 1980
Albert begins every workout with 30 minutes of cardio on the elliptical machine as a general warm-up. He finishes each day with 10-15 minutes of full-body stretching.
*Pick any workout but start it with 30 minutes on the elliptical machine and end it with a 10-15 minute stretch. Get to the batting cages and try hitting 500 home-runs.
Dian Fossey 1932
“When you realize the value of all life you dwell less on past and concentrate more on the conservation of the future.”
Adopt a gorilla today!
*We are still in January and you have already been given a lot of opportunities to donate time and money to charitable causes. Pick one that you like or one that strikes a chord with you and donate as much as you can. Unless you’re stinking rich, then donate to them all. No money? Find a charity in 365DOLF that provides ways to donate time and energy. Like Dian Fossey suggests, concentrate on the conservation of the future.
Lin-Manuel Miranda 1980
“Growing up, I was always cautious about spending. In fact, I was so nervous about incurring debt that I didn’t open my first credit card until age 28, after my first show had opened on Broadway.”
*Shop around get the best credit card with rewards. Use that credit card for everyday purchases and pay it off every month. Do NOT just pay the minimum and let it add up. This is easier said than done and I wish someone would have given me this advice about 25 years ago.
*Remember that age ain’t nothing but a number as you listen to Aaliyah – may she R.I.P.
Kate Moss 1974
“I am going to stuff my chicken,” “Half a lemon and an onion up its bum for a bit of flavour.”
*Follow along as Kate Moss cooks a Sunday lunch for Vogue.
