“Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t come to yours,” 

*Go to things. Go to weddings. Go to funerals. Let people know that you are supporting them. I was married on 7/1/17 and my dad’s funeral was on 6/2/18. My friends who were there for me on both of these days will always be special to me.

VanCamp’s workouts are always changing, but they tend to be half on land and half in water. She’ll focus on things such as Pilates, planks, push ups, or side extensions-just basically a lot of body movements using her body weight.

*Get to a swimming pool and work out like Emily VanCamp aka Sharon Carter.

“You can live comfortably and be happy and not always aspire for something bigger and better – for more. I did that for a big part of my life, and realized that it’s more fun to embrace what you have and to enjoy those things, even if it’s not the most expensive or flashiest.”

*Embrace what you have and enjoy your life. Your life could be much better if you were like Tony Hawk and made a fortune out of doing what you love.

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.
