Mid Life Thursday?

Mid Life Thursday?  Seems like it surely must be so.

Here’s a good one:

“How far you go in life depends on you being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the strong.  Because someday in life, you will have been all of these”.  — George Washington Carver

It finally hit many years ago that this is absolutely true.  It’s very hard to imagine, even absurd, that I didn’t have a clue about this reality, for most of my life.

Just another reason why I love this Mid Life Celebration so much.

Only 25 days until I celebrate 50 years on our planet.  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂


Mid Life Wednesday?

Mid Life Wednesday?  Definitely seems so.

Here’s another quote to help us focus on Goodness:

Play like there’s no tomorrow.
Work like you don’t need the pay.
Dance like no body’s watching.
Sing like no body’s listening.
Love like you’ve never been hurt.

I often catch myself wondering if I’m all talk.

The fact that at least I try very hard every day, to live a good and decent life, is enough to keep me going.

What motivates you to live a good and decent life?

Whatever motivates you, I hope you find it abundantly today.  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂



Mid Life Tuesday?

Mid Life Tuesday?  Seems so.

Here’s a thought to get us going:

“The greatness of a nation and it’s moral progress can be judged by the way it’s animals are treated”.  — Ghandi

My goal in life is to become the kind of person my Dog thinks I am.  For real!

So, it’s an incredible wake up call everyday, when I’m filled with choices, to try and find the courage, strength and especially wisdom, to know what to do and when to do it.

I hope I can make my Dog even prouder than he already is.

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

PS.  Nice entry today at Lane


Mid Life Monday?

Mid Life Monday?   Seems so.

And here’s a thought:

“As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say.  I just watch what they do”. – Andrew Carnegie

This is why so many people, myself included, struggle in life.  Our intentions and our behaviors are two different things.  This sends the wrong, and unintentional, message to others.

Not until we become aware of this, admit to it, and then resolve to change, can we lead a better, more fulfilling life.

A life with more peace and contentment.

At least that’s my intent.

Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂
