DANCE WITH A WOLF DAY

MIND

Jason Segel 1980

Faceclaim Help! — Jason Segel Gif Hunt

“You know what I learned as I got older? To give myself a break,” “As long as I’m trying as hard as I can … you’re going to mess up and you’re not going to be perfect. It’s OK. … Everything’s OK.”

*Cut yourself some slack today. Everything’s OK. And if you need a good laugh, watch the birthday boy Jason Segel in Forgetting Sarah Marshall

BODY

Batista does not care about his carbohydrates or calorie intake due to his highly intensive training. He follows a low-fat high protein diet and avoids bread.

“For me, it’s more having a hunch and following through on the hunch. Having an almost religious faith in the fact that certain things are connected, and I have to lasso them all into the same place.”

*What is a hunch that you have?

How can you follow through on it?

MONEY

Ted DiBiase 1954

Wrestler of the Day

“Everybody has a price.”

*Be ready to leave this life with a legacy as someone who gives, not someone who takes. Be a person who cannot be bought. 

ENTERTAINMENT

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.
