What a GREAT day to be alive!
Hey, thanks for reading Mid Life Celebration. Your time is very important to you.
Heck, mine is too.
And I devote a fair piece of it to Mid Life Celebration.
Because it makes me feel like I’m helping some of you mid-life folks find a home where you can come to for a gentle push or pull.
Finding people who care is a challenge. Sometimes, that’s all that’s missing. We just need someone to tell us not to give up. Someone to tell us there is work to be done and we ought to do our fair share.
Someone to remind us that although we may feel like in this world, we are just one person, to another person, we may just be the world to them.
We all know what should be done. But the hard part is actually doing it.
I’ve always liked people who pushed me to be a better person.
Hope you like those kinds of people too. There aren’t too many of them, but they’re out there.
Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
Here’s a free resource for developing your Mid Life Mission statement
In my 50 years on Earth, I’ve asked thousands of people what the meaning of life is. Seriously, I have. And still do.
Know what the most common response is?
Second most common response?
I’ll bet right now that 99% of you reading this don’t have an answer that rolls of the tip of your tongue.
And the one percent that does have an answer, or thinks they have an answer – their answer will be so unprepared that you and I would find it difficult to clearly understand.
That is why, if you want to leave a legacy for the important people you love, I highly recommend you consider creating some concise, and inspiring, answer to life’s big question.
Carpe diem, your humble servant, jeff noel 🙂
Mid Life blogging is easy and it’s hard.
Easy because you can choose to do whatever you want. You’re the boss.
Hard because you may not achieve your goal. Assuming you had a goal in mind that led you to blog, not reaching it could be a huge disappointment.
I hope you don’t give up.
Whether you are blogging at mid-life, or getting in shape at mid-life, or even mending some important relationship at mid-life, may you find the strength and courage to keep going.
Life is hard, that’s the conversation I had today with our eight-year old son.
But at eight, it’s really hard to comprehend.
At mid-life, we could all write a book, eh?
You know, I was actually thinking about a comment a speaker made in February at the National Speaker’s Association Winter Conference, here in my “backyard” – Walt Disney World.
He said, “Don’t die with a book in you“.
Words to live by.
And a hard decision to make on what to do with a comment like that.
Good luck and carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
The post that was originally here has been removed because i inadvertently made an honest mistake over six years ago.
Mid Life and the art of Carpe Diem.
How does one, while in mid-life, seize the day?
For me, it’s a constant, never-ending focus on being present.
I can hear a few people thinking, “OK Einstein, how do you do that“?
Again, it’s a habit of trying to always be present.
Like Tiger Woods told me last year, to be world class in anything, you have to “Out work ’em”!
Each day I try to be better than I was the day before. And at the very least, no loss – at least maintain the level from the day before.
No rules for mid-life success will work unless you do. Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
