Idle & Strong @ Mid Life?

“To be idle requires a strong sense of personal identity”. Robert Louis Stevenson

“To have a strong sense of personal identity requires being idle”.jeff noel

There’s much to be said for both.

But not much more to be said right now.

Seize this day.  It’s yours.  Hurry up and do nothing.

Live, laugh, learn, teach, love, leave a legacy of courage and hope.

PS.  Thanks Craig for sharing this.

Mid Life World Class

Mid Life is world class. It really is. But we have to work hard at it.

How does a young child go from jumping off the kiddie ramp in the first photo, to jumping off the world class ramp?

The same way you and I become great at anything.

Practice.

Last week I had the privilege to represent the United States at the Master’s Track & Field World Championships.

I got there the same way the ski jumpers did.

Practice.

Today is a great day to practice.  If not today, when?

The “Word” Happiness

“The “word” happiness would lose it’s meaning if it were not balanced by sadness”. — Carl Jung

I once read that we should be kind to everyone, because everyone is going through some sort of hell.

I’ve found this to be true. Seriously.

With that in mind, I hope to have a really happy day, but if I don’t, I’m going to try to remember that sadness is a very real part of life.

Just like right now, as I type this from the porch, it’s completely dark outside. Because of this, I guarantee you I will appreciate the sunlight all the more.

Ya with me?

Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
