One day to do whatever you want, it would be:
I always feel like I am on the go, so my best day would be relaxing on a beach with my friends and family, eating some great food and then taking a nap.

Words to live by/favorite quote (with author/source): "People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may acuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.
Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten.
Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.
Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway."
