Honey, It's For You

My Daughter Has Brain Cancer

“Are you heading home”?, I asked the women (73) in the window seat.

“No, I’m going to visit my daughter (47) who has brain cancer”.

Then she asked me the same question and I asked her, “Can you please give me a few minutes so I can comprehend what you just said”?

A routine day. A routine trip.  A routine question.

A wake up call answer.

And just the day before I was taking about “Living before you die” with another man in mid life.

It’s like someone is telling me, do it, start writing and get your book out there. Too many people are sleeping.

Inspiration Nightmare In Mid Life

“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours”. Henry David Thoreau

Pretty good, to a point. Sort of saying I’m not buying it completely.

It seems Thoreau’s message is a bit misleading. We all know that life isn’t fair, and therefore, expecting the life we imagine will happen, is doomed.

What I hear is, “Go after your dreams.  Expect and be prepared for awful things to happen. But don’t let that stop you from living an extraordinary life”.

If you want to make God laugh, tell God your plans. But don’t let that stop you.

Life's Big Choices (4 total)

I Often Wonder

I often wonder if non-Baby Boomers, read Mid Life Celebration.

It also intrigues me whether this blog helps you as much as it helps the author.

GoDaddy says yes. The daily stats continue to rise at a fast pace. A pace that is quite distracting actually.

Hadn’t planned for the type of “success” the stats indicate. So today, just wanted to clarify something.

Mid Life Celebration is for our son.  It’s one of life’s four big choices. Our mind, and what we do with it.

The Movement

Mid Life Million Dollar Question

Mid Life Million Dollar Question:

“What’s it gonna take to move from midlife-complacency to midlife-commitment”?

There are curious people who actually ask me, “What’s your secret to get and stay motivated”?

I usually mumble something that sounds like a good answer, but actually I’m thinking, “If I have to explain it to you, you won’t understand”.

Listen, you got to mid life. That in itself is pretty remarkable. You have the answers. You do. Trust me, you do.

But maybe you haven’t yet found the courage to admit it.

When are you going to start?  If not today, when?

Seriously, when?
