Do we show up everyday with compelling questions?

Midlife Celebration book at Disneyland

 

Do we show up everyday with compelling questions?

Great questions that challenge authority (our own as well as other’s) and status quo.

Or does the way life has a habit of beating us down, making us fearful of looking stupid and out of place…

… does that encourage us to put our heads down and slog through another long day?

Everyday.

We all need someone to tell us we have a choice each day.

And that our choice is valid, and admirable, and worth overcoming hesitation (fear).

We need someone to encourage us, convince us, and cheer for us.

There are those among us who’ve done this and they can carry the torch until we learn to carry it ourselves.

Life is not a dress rehearsal. Live like you mean it!

Like it or not, good news and bad news follows us constantly

There’s a time and a place for this. How do we transform when we are crystal clear?

 

Like it or not, good news and bad news follows us constantly. We are so stinking busy most days (years, even decades) that we get blinded to the reality that everybody is in the same boat.

So reminded of that today (11.12.13 – Nov 12, 2013) as the year-end holidays, and work challenges that go along with this time of year, that much of the world is in overdrive trying to survive and celebrate simultaneously.

This fact provides solace to one who has given herself permission to step up and be a positive catalyst the herd so desperately needs.

The herd is the majority, going through the motions. Until the final breath.

Getting old is not what throws us, it is the slow decline (to nearly zero)

Palm Beach Life 1932 magazine cover
At the other end of negativity is a category known as opulence (notice the magazine date)

 

Getting old is not what throws us, it is the slow decline (to nearly zero) in our investment to nourish and care for our positive attitude – against the never ending onslaught of negativity bombarding us in the news.

I know it’s hard to find the energy and desire

Are owls wise?

 

I know it’s hard to find the energy and desire to make each and every day special. But here’s the thing, each day we don’t makes tomorrow easier not to. And so on.

Death by apathy?

Death by apathy?

What’s happening all around us is astonishingly saddening. And virtually no one is immune.

It is easier to fight for one’s principles than to live up to them. – Alfred Adler

We’re not immune from following the herd, nor from the herd’s insidious denial which remains so prevalent within it’s masses – talking a good talk, but not having the energy nor commitment to walk it.

Those of us here at Mid Life Celebration, maybe we are the hope the world needs.
