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 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?
“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 🙂
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 jeff.net that is an interesting look at how President Obama and The White House have a blog.
Do you have:
- Cell phone
- Postal Address
- e-mail address
- LinkedIn profile
- Facebook profile
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 🙂
“Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good“. — Ann Landers
Ann Landers’s quote should come as no surprise to anyone who’s reached mid-life wisdom.
At Disney, they define VIP as, “Very Individual Person“.
It may be safe to say that when we treat someone as an individual, we treat them as a VIP – Very Important Person.
Make it a GREAT day! Because if you don’t, who will? If not now, when? Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
