Dear Son

Will our hope fade or can we protect it?

Nursing home
Yesterday morning, writing the first of seven Disney Business books, bedside with my 91-year old father-in-law.

 

Embracing fear and failure puts you in charge of your plan starting today.

Is it possible to be intentional enough with our attitude so we can remain vibrant?

And can we nurture a balanced wellness approach to our life events even as we reach our final years?

The old dog syndrome and the simple secret to overcome it

The older you become the more challenging it is to do new things. The antidote, it seems to me, is to substitute quality for quantity.

Note to self for posterity: 08.03 Wednesday…8am drive to Canada/Waterton Park. Chief Mountain. Prince of Wales Hotel. Lunch in Waterton. Saw a bear at Prince of Wales driveway. Dinner at Two Dog Flats. Drove to Two Dog Flats to look for bear. Saw one at 8pm. Good pics.

Thankfulness

Can you text me one thing each morning?

jeff noel quote
This came to me two days ago. Wisdom is action (and sometimes intentional inaction). Common sense without action is not common sense.

 

Can you text me one thing each morning in addition to your blood pressure readings?

One thing you are grateful for as you take your blood pressure.

Do you know why i ask?

Because i know you can do it.

And because i believe it will help you.

The fact that someone is asking you to do this for yourself is something to be grateful for.

And the fact i am alive is a bonus gratitude item. Not all children live longer than their parents.

i am grateful because i know you know all this to be true. i am also grateful that you are alive. Not every parent gets a chance to have a 7th decade of life.

MidLife Celebration Is...

Irrefutable always lives up to it’s reputation

Flip flops on Sanibel Island beach
Three years ago this week, a good friend passed away unexpectedly. He was 47, a husband and a dad.

 

Irrefutable always lives up to it’s reputation.

We are all going to die.

Embracing this everyday, to me, makes living like you mean it a more tangible goal.

Rethink

Can we disrupt aging?

Can we disrupt aging?

Or are we destined to follow in the path created by the majority of inactive, vastly unconditioned mid-life adults?

Majority rules, right?

Back to the original question.
