Never missed a day and today will not be the first

Minion and Disney Speaker
Today.

 

Never missed a day and today will not be the first.

It’s 10:30pm as i begin today’s five posts.

Left the house at 8:30am this morning to ride 14 miles to Universal Studios for an AV check.

Left Universal at 8:00pm and rode home, the last 40 minutes in the dark.

It was serendipitous that Magic Kingdom fireworks were concluding as i biked onto our driveway.

It’s tempting to simply go straight to bed.

But there is a streak on the line and it feels like it’s worth defending.

Why did jeff noel pick April Fools Day to start?

April Fools Day is the day many people play practical jokes.

So what April Fools Day practical joke did jeff noel play on this date in 2009?

None.

The impossible goal of writing five daily, differently-themed blog posts for 100 consecutive days was not a joke.

Knowing i wanted to write my first book coupled with the 2008-09 economic tsunami – it was a perfect catalyst to gain writing practice.

But i thought i was a fool to believe in such a ridiculously ambitious goal.

Will i write 5-a-day until i die?

Disney University
Life in my hometown the other day. Went for a bike ride after writing for the first two hours of the day.
There’s a chance i will continue to write 5 daily, differently-themed blog posts until the day i die.
 
It helps me see things i never saw before.
 
It helps me see things i always see, but now with a remarkable clarity.
 
Those two things have become a source of oxygen – something i can’t live without.
i love writing.

150 days ago today

What’s your attitude regarding impossible?

What’s your attitude regarding doing seemingly insignificant work year after year?

Just realized 150 days ago the 14,000th Mid Life Celebration, LLC post went live.

Such a small, meaningless event in world history.

Such a brilliant testament to slow and steady, the journey of a thousand miles begins wth a single step, and a year from now you’ll wish you had begun today.

Rock on with your slow and steady self.
