What is your heart set upon?
In a quote, here’s a filter I use:
“Before we set our hearts too much upon any thing, let us examine how happy those are who already possess it“. — Francois de La Rochefoucauld
May we all find what we’re looking for.
May we all like what we find.
And most importantly, it would seem, may we all be able to give it away so others may be blessed by it.
Everyday, I’m reminded how blessed I am to be alive. This makes me exceedingly grateful.
Case in point. Today I received a cortisone shot in my left heel. This is one of the most painful types of shots a human can get.
I told Dr. Curtis Wagner that I was thankful to have a foot to get a shot in. I know several people who are missing one or both of their feet.
What would they give to feel that aweful pain?
My heart is set upon good health, in four key Mid-Life areas: Mind, Body, Spirit and Money.
My wife’s 94-year old Grammy used to say, “Health is Wealth“!
Words to live by and a goal to set our heart upon.
Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

“Let the glories of nature energize your body, heal your psyche, and uplift your spirit.” — anonomous
“The word “happiness” would lose it’s meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.” — Carl Jung
Make it a great, midlife day, because if you don’t, who will? 🙂
What do you do, every single day, that tells you, “Yes, I’m on the right track with my life. I am dreaming and doing, so that I may live without regrets.”?
This is a really tough one.
I believe it’s because most of us are insanely busy.
Anyway, here’s what I do. It may work for you. It may not.
I read for, think of and pray for, inspiration, every single day.
It took a long time for this daily habit to occur, and I’m so glad I got started and even more thankful that I never gave up.
It’s such a part of what I do now that it’s become a habit that requires about as much effort as getting dressed, going to the bathroom, or brushing my teeth.
Here’s a thought from Carl Jung that I just found, as I flipped through one of my 3-ring binders full of quotes and short stories – collected from the past 35 years:
“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
Live, before you die. Do something great. If you don’t, who will? Carpe diem, and best wishes for your next inspiring moment. May you have so many that you feel blessed beyond measure. 🙂
