MidLife 50-Year Old Virgin?

Am I a 50-year old mid life Guest Blogger virgin?

Not any more.

Beyond The Gray posted an interveiw with me last week. What joy! How cool is that?  Pretty cool.

Click here to go directly to the Mid Life Celebration Guest Blogger interview.

Few things are more joyful than doing something positive for others. This is simply a starting point. Expect more of these as time marches on and don’t be surprised if I ask you to be a Guest Blogger.

Seriously.  It could happen.  Will you be ready?  Do you have something important or funny (or both) to say?

I guarantee you do. No, seriously.  You have talents and gifts that no one else has. And if you’ve never realized this before, may I humbly ask you to give some consideration to this thought?  Carpe diem.

Selling Hope Inspiration

What brings people Joy?  And why do people try to bring joy to others? Also, what is it about joy that makes us feel good, whether we give joy or receive joy?

It really doesn’t matter does it?

I mean, giving, or receiving, joy always makes us feel good. I love that about joy. Who doesn’t, right?

Yesterday you heard that Mid Life Celebration isn’t selling anything that costs money, and that Mid Life Celebration is one of five daily blogs written by jeff noel (hello), from Orlando, Florida.

Please, make no mistake, eventually there will be an effort to make money – a lot of money – to give away to people.

And also, please make no mistake, Mid Life Celebration is dedicated to making the world a better place, never resting in an effort to sell hope and inspiration.

Five-A-Day Bloggers

Five-a-day bloggers.  How many are there?

So I Googled five-a-day bloggers and got 367,000,000 search results, but nothing on the first page described anyone who actually writes five daily blogs.

Okay, no problem, let’s narrow the search, so I typed – “five-a-day bloggers” – using quotation marks to focus the search.

Click here to see the result.

When was the last time you Googled anything and got only one result?

If you are new to Mid Life Celebration, welcome.  Hope you find this (and the other four daily blogs) a refreshing visit in a cyber-world that is overcrowded with people trying to sell us stuff.

None of the five-a-day blogs I write are selling anything.  Maybe hope and inspiration. But nothing that costs money.

Mid Life Holiday Stress

Mid Life holiday stress can rob us of the joy  we could be experiencing, if only we could focus.

But how are we supposed to focus when this time of year is so hectic?

And it occurred to me that this time of year has always been hectic. Ever see A Miracle on 34th Street?

It was inspired on Christmas eve, 1944, when Valentine Davies, a screenwriter, went gift shopping for his wife.  It was hectic, crazy, and lacked the spirit of Christmas we all know in our hearts, but often fail to make time for.

Valentine set out to create a movie that would help remind everyone that the spirit of Christmas and Santa Claus, is real.  Very real.

Considered a “B” movie, it was released during the summer, and never advertised as a Christmas movie.

The American public embraced the movie so much that it ran in theaters straight through the end of the year.

It is one of the all-time great Christmas movies and one that my family and I watch every holiday season, when we can find the time.
