The message Goethe is trying to send us isn’t a plea to understand him, or that we become like him, but rather that like him we should take courage in an infinitely more worthwhile task — that of becoming ourselves.

*Continue to work on becoming yourself.

Besides sculpting her body, boxing also relieves her from stress and boosts the flow of adrenaline in her body.

*Do another boxing workout today – to sculpt your body, relieve stress, and boost the flow of adrenaline through your body.

“I’ve got a better handle on family perspective today. In the days when I was – as they used to call me – “one of the biggest stars in television”, I got the balance wrong. The caring about what I looked like, what I sounded like, what I represented to other people was more important than being with my family. That was the sadness of that period but it doesn’t mean I don’t have time for other people now.”

*Re-balance. Being with your family is more important than anything else today, and every day.

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.
