Happy 98th birthday Betty White

Waking up to another day. At some point, we become accutely mindful that old age means the train will soon be arriving.

Happy 98th birthday Betty White.

Betty turned 98 January 17, 2020, yesterday.

So here she is, today, beginning her 99th year.

Guessing that every evening she wonders if she’ll see the light of day.

Guessing every day she wonders if she’ll get to lay her head on a soft pillow in the evening.

Perhaps that’s the paradox of 98 – there’s no doubt you only have a handful, at best, years left.

At 60, 70, 80, we can easily think, “At least another decade or two.”

Two Hardest Things in Mid Life

Mid Life – the two hardest things:

“The two hardest things in life are failure and success”. — Unknown

Wow!  In reading this quote last night, I was struck by it’s truth.

I hate to fail. It scares the heck out of me. I’m not talking about losing a monopoly game. Ya with me?

I also get scared to death of success.

In speaking with Tiger Woods back in May 2008, I asked him, “Do you ever get tired of being famous”?

He responded matter of factly, “Since day one”!

It’s a risk I have to take.
