Getting Old?

Getting old isn’t a burden, it’s a huge responsibility. It’s also a gift.

It’s hard as heck to stay healthy. You’d never guess by looking at me, but I have to work incredibly hard to stay healthy. My very life literally depends on it.

For some, it’s “impossible”, because that’s the choice they’ve made, to believe it is impossible.

Christopher Reeves wrote several books, one entitled, “Nothing Is Impossible“.

In my work, I was blessed to spend time with him and his family.

I can’t help but wonder what he would have paid to do what you (most of us anyway) and I did this morning. Wake up. Throw the blankets aside. Stand up. Walk to the bathroom. Bend over and brush our teeth. Etc.

What would Christopher have paid to do that?

One million dollars?

Five million?

$50,000,000?

We got it for free? At least that’s what I think.

If you think you can, or you think you can not, you are right.

It’s all about choices. Tough choices. Life-altering choices. Easy choices and hard choices. At least that’s what I think.

Hope you get time soon to think about your choices. If you don’t decide, who will? If not now, when? The people who love you are watching. This scares the heck out of me. Carpe diem, jeff 🙂

Happy Good Friday

It’s taken me nearly 50 years to fully embrace what Easter is all about.

How long did it take you?

Do you even embrace Easter?

It’s certainly no one’s place to judge another, whether they celebrate Easter or not.

I just wanted to reinforce that a Mid Life Crisis is a perfect time to start thinking about celebrating something.

Finding something to celebrate, even in the midst of “a great depression”, could be the very thing that helps you survive and maybe even thrive. It has for me. Carpe diem, jeff 🙂

White Eagle

And how, you ask, are we to walk the spiritual path? We answer: say little, and love much; give all; judge no man; aspire to all that is pure and good“. — White Eagle

Make it a great Mid-Life day. It’s our attitude and our choice. Always is and always will be. It’s the one thing we do have control over.

PS. No one ever promised it would be easy. When I start feeling like my path is hard, I think of, or click on, Nick Vujicic.

Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
