The easiness and simplicity of the present moment

Disney Keynote Speakers
Last night’s trip to Disney’s Magic Kingdom to shoot a short client video for social media.

 

The easiness and simplicity of the present moment is lost because we are constantly thinking about so many things.

It’s challenging to simply be focused on the present moment without a dwelling on something that’s already happened, or a preoccupation with something that might or will happen in the future.

Case in point, as i type this, i’m preoccupied with two clients with high, yet unrealistic, expectations. These clients want amazing results and the miracle of getting those results with a magic formula that circumvents a slow and steady uphill climb.

Merry Christmas, thank you Christmas for being an annual part of my life

fosbury flop statue
Fosbury flop. Screenshot from Twitter yesterday (Oct 24). The University of Oregon revealed this statue yesterday.

 

 

Why the Fosbury video?

Because Twitter planted a seed yesterday.

And the seed grew into a thought about being a pioneer.

Pioneers change things.

Maybe the way i think about death (and the 10-year plan) is pioneering.

Time will tell.

And no, i didn’t do it to pioneer anything.

Dick Fosbury didn’t either.

Dick was simply looking for a way to not be the worst high jumper on his High School team.

And i simply don’t want to die with regret. i plan to die with peace and contentment. Peace with who i am. Content with what i have.

Merry Christmas, thank you Christmas for being an annual part of my life.

According to my 10-year plan, this is my final Christmas.

i’m at peace with having such a non-conforming approach to life.

The critics, and there are always critics, used to be people i worried about what they would think of me.

Maybe 3-5 years ago i started asking, “Why?”

Well, for starters, some of them are family and friends.

People i’ve known a lifetime.

To this unnecessary worry, i’ve surrendered.

Free at last.

Thank God almighty, i’m free at last. (ht MLK)

Note: ht = hat tip.

What makes your life good?

pedestrian struck by car near Disney
Walking to gym yesterday, stopped at an intersection for the “walking person” icon to illuminate that it’s safe to cross.

 

pedestrian struck by car near Disney
i spotted the sneaker right away and with five police cars parked in the intersection at 7:30am, i knew this couldn’t be good.

 

pedestrian struck by car near Disney
Praying for a miracle. The two officers (left) confirmed a person had been hit by a car, but couldn’t give any other details. Later, as i drove to Magic Kingdom, i saw the windshield of the car that struck the pedestrian. i don’t see how anyone could have survived. i also prayed hard for the driver (and still am).

 

What makes your life good?

You can believe what others say.

You can decide for yourself.

12 days went by fast

Many Glacier Hotel
Yes, it’s this striking.

 

Nearly two weeks away from home.

The original trip on November 1st was booked without a return flight, and we eventually booked the return for November 6, which was two days after Dad’s funeral.

Little did we know that Mom wouldn’t be strong enough to attend Dad’s viewing and funeral.

In fact, it happened fast – Mom went to be with Dad the very next day.

Six days apart.

Allegiant Air made it easy to rebook our flight for yesterday evening, two days after Mom’s funeral.

#Surrender

#Surrender

Surrender and the serenity prayer is the same thing.

Letting go of things i can’t control is the key to peace.
