Midlife crisis and the great Summer of 2013

Steve Jobsian: Insanely great!

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.

  1. Hi Jeff, I have insanely great news and I’m bursting with joy to tell you about it! I am on Day Three of my peer-funding project for Blue Star Family Platoon! Just wanted you to know that your blogposts have been inspiring me for a pretty long time — you have a knack for putting those challenges out there, and I’ve always been a sucker for a challenge!

    So I’m going all out on a limb and charging forward into making my dreams turn into my realities, all at the speed of Jesus.

    Here’s a link to my campaign: https://startsomegood.com/BlueStarFamilyPlatoon

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me to believe in myself, my dreams, my giftedness and my own creativity. You are making a difference in this world!

  2. Natalie, each of us has a special gift to offer the world. Something that no one else does quite the way we alone can contribute.

    This is on top of the normal special gifts like being a parent, volunteer, skill or trade.

    So very excited that you have stepped up and launched. Inspiring.

    Have tweeted and posted on other social sharing sites. It takes a village.

    The official Blue Star Banner video is an excellent overview for those unfamiliar (click on Natalie’s link in her comment above).

    And Natalie, am absolutely thrilled you posted your very own You Tube video. It takes courage to do that. And the more you do, the more you’ll want to do.

    For those of us who currently don’t have a Family member away from home serving our Country, if you see a Blue Star Banner displayed, say a prayer, say hello, and simply thank that Family for their sacrifice and service to our Country.

    And know that Blue Star Banners is a starting point for offering other services and support to Military Families, who are very often invisible in their own communities.

    Thank you for what you’ve done to get this far and what you’ll continue to do moving forward.
