Yogi Berra 1925

“Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t come to yours,” 

*Go to things. Go to weddings. Go to funerals. Let people know that you are supporting them. I was married on 7/1/17 and my dad’s funeral was on 6/2/18. My friends who were there for me on both days will always be special to me.


Emily VanCamp 1986

Her workouts focus on Pilates, planks, push-ups, or side extensions-just basically a lot of body movements using her body weight.

*Work out like Emily VanCamp aka Sharon Carter.

George Carlin 1937

“I’ve begun worshipping the sun for a number of reasons. First of all, unlike some other gods I could mention, I can see the sun. It’s there for me every day. And the things it brings me are quite apparent all the time: heat, light, food, and a lovely day. There’s no mystery, no one asks for money, I don’t have to dress up, and there’s no boring pageantry. And interestingly enough, I have found that the prayers I offer to the sun and the prayers I formerly offered to “God” are all answered at about the same 50% rate.”

What are your thoughts on worshipping the sun?


Tony Hawk 1968

“You can live comfortably and be happy and not always aspire for something bigger and better – for more. I did that for a big part of my life and realized that it’s more fun to embrace what you have and to enjoy those things, even if it’s not the most expensive or flashiest.”

*Embrace what you have and enjoy your life. Your life might be better if you were like Tony Hawk and made a fortune out of doing what you love.

Ving Rhames 1959

*Have the meats at Arby’s but save room for dessert

BONUS: Jason Biggs 1978 – American apple pie for dessert

*Make an American apple pie for dessert. Just EAT the pie.

SNUB – Florence Nightingale 1820

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.
