Peace In Your Soul

Mid Life Updates

Rethink, Reprioritize, Recommit
Rethink, Reprioritize, Recommit

Happy Monday everyone.  Hope you had a great weekend. I actually worked Saturday at my “real job” – yes, I’m a career employee at a large company.

This whole five daily blogs thing is like a hobby, like growing a garden or something. And as any avid gardener will tell you, “It’s a labor of love.”

Quite literally, a labor of love – for a child.

Anyway, back to the updates:

1.  Erika Liodice’s Mid Life Celebration Guest Blogger post yesterday was a first here. Please check out her site, Beyond The Gray, if you want a midlife perspective from a not yet 30-year old.  Erika gave me “my first big break” as a Guest Blogger.

2.  The numbers thing the other day. (gulp) Well, that was sort of like a time capsule to look back on later.

3.  February is about Peace. Peace to me means –  tranquility, balance, solace, contentment, harmony, simplicity, acceptance.

Peace In Your Soul



That’s how it feels at this moment.

It started yesterday when I came home to find the UPS package at the front door.

The official USA World Championship Team jersey.

To make sure it fit, I tore open the package and tried it on.

It fit perfectly.

Then it hit me.

Complete and utter disbelief, and yet at the same time, an indescribable feeling of honor, joy and responsibility.

At that very moment, I completely understood how the real USA Olympians must feel after spending a lifetime to make a dream come true.

I wish you the best as you think about whether your dreams are worth pursuing.

I know that, even if I finish dead last, the ten years was completely worth it.

Because now I now I tried my best. No regrets. None. It’s called Peace.

Carpe diem, jeff noel, out in Lane 8 🙂
