Mid Life Reminder

Ever Feel Trapped By Your Habits?
Ever Feel Trapped By Your Habits?

The easier it is to do, the harder it is to change. – Eng’s Principle

You’re the CEO of You, Inc.

You can do what you want.

I’m going to think about this one all day.

Midlife Weekend Warrior

Ever find yourself in good rhythm with life? You carve out time to nurture a new habit, maybe even transformational in nature?

Then, after creating this very predictable habit, you modify it, in hopes of an even better habit? Was it difficult to let go of your routine? Did you worry about how others would react? Did your change “stick”?

After 18 consecutive months of daily writing, I paused. It’s been two weekends in a row with no posts.

“Why?”, you ask. Great question.

Thankfulness

Simple Thanks Mid Life?

Simple.  Thankful. Present. Childlike. Humble.

At mid life, there are many things that can distract us from being present.  And when this occurs, we can not be thankful for even the simple things.

Not being thankful for even the simple things leaves us open to create habits that take us farther and farther from thankfulness.

This should alarm us.  And maybe, just maybe, we should be thankful for our alarm.

Bank of Bad Habits?

“All our corrupt passions must be subdued, and a complex habit of virtues such as meekness, lowliness, faith, hope and love of God and man be implanted in their room before we can have the least title to enter into the Kingdom of God”.  — George Whitefield

While George Whitefield  suggests complex habits, may I be so bold as to suggest that we try to keep it simple?

Mid Life Simplicity?

Hardly.  But the idea sure beats, Mid Life Complexity.

Make it a GREAT Tuesday, because if you don’t, who will.  If not today, when?  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂
