It’s a leap of faith that personal responsibility will thrive

Yesterday at the happiest place on Earth.


Are you getting biannual checkups? Doubtful. Midlifer’s are lucky to make a single annual physical a priority, let alone two.


Because we’re busy. Really, really busy.

And in our busy-ness we are often slapped in the face with a much needed reminder.

Like an hour ago.

During our 14 year old’s bi-annual Gastroenterology checkup.

The teen is doing well at self managing his daily medicine. Dr. Erhart reminded all three (Cheryl, Chapin, me) of us that unchecked inflammation increases the odds of colon cancer 20-40 times normal.

Begging asking for donations is one worn-out approach traditional. Offering a compelling and unique product the world will gladly pay good money for is another.

Mid Life Celebration was founded on the second premise – to raise money until a cure is found for Crohn’sand Ulcerative Colitis.

Painstaking Excellence?

Painstaking excellence is an attitude, and a Brand differentiator…

Why do I make sacrifices with my personal time to write 5 daily blogs? Because, as Martin Luther King reminds us…

“All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance, and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence”.

Got Mid Life Soul?

Got Mid Life soul?

These people got soul, even if they’re not in mid life, we can GET inspired, to BE inspired.

Are you inspired?

I am.  Visit Lane 8 to see why.

Here’s the You Tube Nike Commercial…..


Mental wellness. Physical wellness. Spiritual wellness. Financial wellness.

All of it.

It’s our responsibility to do the best we can. And at mid life, most of us have the blessing of having people watching us.  Watching whether or not we live up to our responsibility.

Like all the Nike ads challenge – just do it.

Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

PS.  Did you notice the last runners legs and feet?  If you didn’t, you should.   It will remind many to quit complaining and just get on with doing something.

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
