SOUL

Curtis Martin 1973

“I believe that we all have our own personal cross in life, but instead of enduring that cross, we try to avoid it, and in avoiding that, we also avoid that blessing. … If we can keep our eyes somewhat focused on the greater good that will come out of the pain, I think it gives us the motivation to endure,”

*Martin used actual physical pain to eventually get his message across at his Hall of Fame speech. H2P

What is your personal cross?

What will be the greater good from this pain?

MONEY

Julie Benz 1972

“I remember the teacher telling me I should not even try acting. I still have the report card where she was like, ‘You will never be an actor. Your voice is horrible.’ That was the best thing that ever happened to me because I was like, ‘I’ll show you’.”

*Who can you say, “I’ll show you.” to?

How will you show them?

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.
