“I suppose the best advice I ever got, frankly the advice that changed my life, came from my uncle who told me to go to drama school and study acting instead of taking a job, because he said the job would always be there.”

*I wish someone would have given me this advice. I’m giving this advice to you right now – do what you want, don’t just take a job.

“You can control your destiny by controlling your health. Get your cholesterol checked. Everyone else gets sick, but I don’t, was how I used to think. But high cholesterol doesn’t have any symptoms, so there’s no way to see it. It’s the silent killer.”

*Get your cholesterol checked today or at least make an appointment to get it checked. Take a swim in an Olympic size pool and eat some foods that lower cholesterol.

Foods that lower cholesterol

Barley – Eggplant – Apples, grapes, strawberries, citrus fruits

SOUL

Roberta Flack 1937

Her gentle amalgamation of Soul, Gospel, and folk, combined with a message of both empowerment and love, created an intelligent, thoughtful pathway for modern singers

*Listen to some Robert Flack to soothe your soul.

“The first $10,000 you invest in the market should go to a low-cost index fund or exchange-traded fund that mirrors the S&P 500. This gives investors a way to get exposure to the stock market gains without putting in the time or effort needed to pick individual stocks.”

*Make it your goal to have $10,000 available to invest by the end of this year. Then follow Cramer’s advice for investing it.

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.
