EARN THE RIGHT TO BE CHOSEN DAY
Brandon Marshall 1984
“When I first heard the term “mental health,” the first thing that came to mind was mental toughness. Masking pain. Hiding it. Keeping it inside. That had been embedded in me since I was a kid. Never show weakness. Suck it up. Play through it. Live through it.”
“Now, I realize that mental health means the total opposite.”
*See your therapist today. It is not weakness – it is showing strength. Maybe your therapy could be tossing around the football and talking with a close friend.
Keri Russell 1976
*Get a fierce body with the self-defense exercises she used to train for The Americans.
Michelle Monaghan 1976 – watch Messiah
“I certainly appreciate the community of religion. This has a very multicultural cast, but it didn’t really matter what any of our own personal beliefs were. I was just so appreciative to be in a cast with such a global reach that audiences all over the world will be able to relate to all of the characters.”
*Watch Messiah on Netflix and see which characters you relate to.
Kenneth Cole 1954
“I believe, after 30 years, I’ve earned the right to be considered, but every day we have to earn the right to be chosen.”
*Hopefully you’ve earned the right to be considered but keep fighting for that right to be chosen.
Joan Crawford 1908 (maybe 1905 or 1906) – watch Mildred Pierce (1945)
*Watch Joan Crawford win an Oscar in Mildred Pierce.
Ayesha Curry 1989 chicken parm
“Steph was like, ‘I had a really bad game one day and I came home and you made chicken parm and it made me happy,’”
*Poor Steph Curry. Not only is he an NBA superstar, but the poor guy has to come home to meals prepared by a celebrity chef-wife. Enjoy this chicken parm – it will make you happy, even if you’ve had a bad day.
