*Do not be afraid to speak up or speak out today. Have raw courage.

“Last summer we were in Monaco. Every morning we ran for 40 minutes through the streets of Monte Carlo. It was an amazing way to see the city. Now when we travel, we try to explore the places by running.”

*Run around whatever city you are in for 40 minutes today. It’s probably where you live but use today to get out and see your city – explore. 

SOUL

“I spent a month working in Atlanta, and they have Chick-fil-A restaurants on every corner. It’s so good! I crave it. I also love Wendy’s Frosty milkshakes. And then there’s In-N-Out Burger in L.A. I mean, the best.”

*Eat like Turner used to eat. Before the Game of Thrones fame. Get some Chick-fil-A, Wendy’s, and/or In-N-Out to feast on while watching Dogma, Get Out, and a few episodes of G.O.T.

Now make Sansa Stark lemon cakes for dessert.

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.
