Life Transition (Dec 2014)

Living in two places is an extraordinarily different experience

Clock on the wall

 

(photo: From last night in our Church’s PREP Class office. Who has time to read five daily blogs about balance?)

Heading to Texas on a business trip in an hour and taking our son (14). Have promised to do this on a regular basis and but it has never happened.

Why?

Busy.

Distracted.

But not too busy or too distracted to write five daily, differently-themed blog posts about life’s big choices.

And yes, even though this is being written on September 17, am fully aware that yesterday was Christmas day (when this goes live on Dec 26).

To live in two places (now and the future) is an extraordinarily different experience than just living in one.

Another experiment the final week in 2014…

Every morning jeff writes five different, short, and pithy posts about the challenging and wonderful balance between:

mind • body • spirit • work • home

All five websites are seamlessly connected by a convenient and easy to click link to go to the next topic.

Try it below if you never done it, or if it’s been awhile.

One Question A Day?

Is it okay to fake things in our midlife?

Is it okay to fake things in our midlife?

It is good to act as if. It is even better to grow to the point where it is no longer an act. – Charles Caleb Colton

I’m going with yes.

Hope

Katie’s future is so bright, it reminds us of us

Katie’s future is so bright, it reminds us of us. She and her classmates have something most Baby Boomers will never have again – youth.

And a limitless (for now) hopeful optimism for endless possibilities.

The relentless attack of the real world, stronger and seemingly more brutal with each passing decade, hasn’t hit them yet as a homeowner, parent, and career obligated adult.

While we can wish that they’ll be immune from this, we know it ain’t gonna happen.

90 Days Ahead

Ever take a trip back to today?

blog experimentation
Experimenting with the side columns and everything else too.

Is today May 4th or February 4th? Actually, it’s both. Have you ever gone back to today? Stay with me here… Day in, day out, you do what you do plus you have the opportunity to creatively be better at it. Or not.

I blog. A lot. Daily. Five different blogs. You get that (I know). Ever wonder how I’ve been able to not miss a day in over three years – all five blogs, 1129 days in a row?

Today is actually February 4, Cheryl’s birthday. This post will go public in 90 days (today, May 4). Confusing? It’s an experiment. A mindset. To try to become better at what I do.

90 Days Ahead

Can We Look Back On The Future?

92 days ago on New Year's day 2012. Christmas decorations in the background.

Do you consider yourself set in your ways? Comfortable with same old same old? So, um, it doesn’t make sense writing five different blogs every day of the year. Crazy. “Why?”, you ask. Because work life balance has five components, not two.

On top of that, this month I’m writing three months in advance. Life is one grand experiment. Grab your safety goggles and lab coat. Let’s go.
