Midlife crisis and the great Summer of 2013

Steve Jobsian: Insanely great!
Middle left: Insanely great is our responsibility. How cool is that?!

 

Midlife crisis and the great Summer of 2013. The crazy thing about how our Summer will turn out is simply this.

We must stop wishing and just start doing things.

Waiting for conditions to improve before we start living makes us criminals.

Even reading this now, many of us are in denial.

Come on man, insanely great. Go!

We must step forward.

Baby steps are fine.

Every person’s dream is to have great Summers

 

The hardest part of being creative?

Accepting the fact that it never ends.

Do we have it in us (still) to have another great Summer?

The great Summer of 2013 in our mind

Since none of us know how many Summers we have left, we’d be fools to squander this one.

Right?

What’s the harsh reality of enjoying an amazing attitude this summer?

Making excuses why it will have to wait.

Perfect timing for a newly created mantra from a jeffnoel.org blog post comment:

Live without excuses

Note: looking at things (like this trail) from a different angle or from the opposite end, often reveal undisclosed opportunities to keep making progress – where progress is prohibited or discouraged.

Spread optimism this Summer

Camping or getting away would be nice this summer

 

Last year Mid Life Celebration asked if the Summer of 2012 would be our best ever. Remember?

Now, a year later. Will the Summer of 2013 be the best ever?

What if we had a terminal illness and the Docs said we’d be lucky to see September?

But the real question is, can we do it without the fear of death pushing us?
