Yesterday morning began in Jacksonville, Florida at the 2015 USATF Masters Track & Field National Championships.
So many older Americans there embrace thriving regardless of negative, aging stereotypes.
Twelve hours later, back home at Disney, we went to dinner at Epcot. The contrast between the physical vibrancy at the track meet and the overwhelming lack of it at the theme park was literally sickening unhealthy.
Sorry to be so honest.
Follow the Herd, or follow the Movement.
The movement is authenticity.
Being authentic to our deepest desires, one of which is to live (physically) vibrantly.
Hey, thanks for reading Mid Life Celebration. Your time is very important to you.
Heck, mine is too.
And I devote a fair piece of it to Mid Life Celebration.
Because it makes me feel like I’m helping some of you mid-life folks find a home where you can come to for a gentle push or pull.
Finding people who care is a challenge. Sometimes, that’s all that’s missing. We just need someone to tell us not to give up. Someone to tell us there is work to be done and we ought to do our fair share.
Someone to remind us that although we may feel like in this world, we are just one person, to another person, we may just be the world to them.
We all know what should be done. But the hard part is actually doing it.
I’ve always liked people who pushed me to be a better person.
Hope you like those kinds of people too. There aren’t too many of them, but they’re out there.
