The Thang:   Today was LEG DAY.  “No one does legs anymore”-someone, somewhere

RD 1: Beat It by Michael Jackson: Al gore until you hear “beat it”, then Jump tuck

RD 2: Flower-popularized by Moby: Al gore until the “up”, then down on the “down”

RD 3: Tubthumping by Chumbawumba: Right leg behind you on the bleacher, split squat on the “I get knocked down”

RD 4: Tubthumping by Chumbawumba: Left leg behind you on the bleacher, split squat on the “I get knocked down”

RD 5: Thunderstruck by AC/DC: al gore, then Box Jump up the stands on “thunder”.  Fun fact, the middle section works out perfectly for the number of “thunderstrucks” in the song.

COT –  My COT revolved around my appreciation for stoicism; “virtue, the highest good, is based on knowledge”. 

I do not find stoicism to be in conflict with faith or belief in a higher being, but rather a reminder that those higher beings afford you the gift and responsibility of knowledge and wisdom.  It is incumbent that you utilize those gifts in your respective lives to have a positive impact.  I shared with the PAX some findings from a hospice nurse in Australia.  Of all her patients, many had very similar regrets at the end of their lives:

  1. I wish I had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me
  2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.  I missed more of my children’s youth and partner’s companionship than necessary.
  3. I wish I had the courage to express my feelings
  4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends
  5. I wish I let myself be happier; I know now, after all these years, happiness is a choice.

I hope everyone I meet in life has, or learns the ability to experience a life fulfilled, one without regret.  Use your faith, your knowledge, your abilities, and wisdom to that effect.
