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  🙂


Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

What a joy it must be to have the honor, and blessing, to be called Mother, Mom, or my personal favorite, Mommy!

And if you’re a Mom at Mid Life, hope you and yours have a great Mid Life Celebration today.

A mid-life quote, just to sprinkle a little mid life insight on your thoughts today:

The real compensation of a right action is inherent in having performed it“.  — Seneca

Make it a GREAT mid life celebration for the special Mothers, Grand Mothers, and Great Grand Mothers, in your life.  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂


Mid Life Saturdays?

Happy Mid Life Saturday.  And, a mid-life quote:

“Rather suffer an injustice than commit one”.  — Unknown

Took me a looooong time to comprehend this.  But now I do.

Carpe diem, jeff 🙂

PS.  I’ve found many people too busy for self-reflection and contemplation.  It is what it is.  No right or wrong “answer”.

Which one are you?  One who does, or one who does not?


Mid Life Errors?

Mid Life Errors?

“Rather an error of the intellect, than an error of the heart”. —  jeff noel

There have been times in my life when I’ve made “stupid mistakes“.  And I’m certain there are more to be made as long as I’m alive.  Ya with me?

However, there have been very few that I’ve intentionally gone out of my way to be hurtful.

It’s my intention to never do that again, ever!

While I’ll never be labeled a genius, there’s still a chance to be labeled “a good man with a good heart“.

Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂


Boomer Bloggers Carnival?

What is Boomer Bloggers Carnival?

Not sure exactly, but I’m checking it out. 


Because there’s something about change and good ideas that I don’t want to miss.

There’s a post at jungle that is an interesting look at how President Obama and The White House have a blog.

Do you have:

  • Cell phone
  • Postal Address
  • Computer
  • e-mail address
  • LinkedIn profile
  • Facebook profile
  • Website
  • Blog

Most will say yes to the first four, but hardly any boomers will say yes to all of the final four.


Don’t know exactly.   I do know that the final four are as common as the first four, to the generations younger than the Baby Boomers.

Remember how we used to (and maybe still do) look at the older generations as “old”?

There’s a reason for that.

We don’t stop doing things because we get old.  We get old because we stop doing things.

Just do it and carpe diem, jeff  🙂
