Happy 35th Anniversary

wedding anniversary

Today, May 25, i write this one month before the actual day we got married.

(and of course, this goes public on the actual day, June 25)

It was a sunny and hot Summer day in 1983.

We were in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

John and Margaret Zubek’s three-story row-home was full of bridesmaid’s activity all morning long – helping their daughter, Cheryl Ann, get ready for the wedding ceremony at Saint Michael’s Byzantine Catholic Church on Green Street .

All the groomsmen were at Aunt Betty’s and Uncle Joe’s house a town over in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

By far, one of the best days of my life.

Less than a week to live?

Less than a week to live?

No.

Less than a week until an 11-day writing and sales trip.

Work like you mean it to eliminate regret from your life.

And be mindful there is no perfect way, and that your chosen way might not work.

Your way may also be brilliant.

The key is to go for it – no regret.

Waiting and doing nothing

Going-To-The-Sun Road plowing status. T-minus seven days until wheels up at 8am. Status from May 22, 2018 (yesterday).

 

 

Waiting and doing nothing are the twin siblings of self-destruction.

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.  – Dale Carnegie

Gonna be a busy Summer.

The hardest part isn’t what to do, it’s what not to do.

Not stalling.

Not procrastinating.

Not making excuses.

Not worrying about it not being good enough.

Slow and steady wins the race

Two days ago, shopping for hiking shorts.

Whatever. What is a hippie anyway? Technically, i’m a short-haired hippie.

 

Slow and steady wins the race.

Each day, chip away at the things that weigh you down.

It’s literally an effort that knows no finish line.

Chip away.

Never tire.

Build space in your year for something amazing, especially as you age.

Why?

Because if you don’t, you may never.

Happy Summer Solstice 2018.

What are your expectations this Summer?

There are three key areas for all of us to manage if we want to have a happy Summer.

  1. Reality
  2. Others
  3. Past

Today’s posts review a recent TED Talk…which is available for viewing on today’s final post.
