Great link for advice with older parents.

Saw this link on my internet provider’s homepage and thought others might like it’s valuable resources as much as I did:

No one ever said life would be easy. Life is good. And, life is hard. Sometimes VERY hard. And, sometimes, VERY good.

This Mid Life Celebration blog is about mid-life challenges and celebrations. It’s here as a way for me, jeff noel the Mid Life Celebration founder, to offer encouragement and hope to people (like you and me) at a cross-roads in mid life.

Mid life, which is relative, by the way, can happen at any point in a person’s life. It’s really a metaphor for any time in our lives when we start to feel like our life is in crisis-mode.

This is exactly the time we have the opportunity to see things as a problem or an opportunity. As a crisis or a celebration.

If you have a website(s) recommendation and would like to share it, to help others, please feel free to do so.

Make today a GREAT, Mid-life day, because if you don’t, who will. Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

Slowest of the Fastest

What is your motivation?

Tough question, unless I get more specific, eh?

What’s your motivation, to want to not only get healthy, but stay healthy?

Here’s a website and blog that will show you my motivation:

Lane challenges you and me to: Dream Big. Get There. Stay There.

Dreaming is fairly easy. Setting a big goal and attaining it, an aweful lot of work. Staying there is a whole other story.

Staying there is virtually impossible.

My big, hairy, audacious health goal? To be the slowest of the fastest – out in lane 8. In the finals. At the world championships. This August.

You’ll see.

What is your heart set upon?

What is your heart set upon?

In a quote, here’s a filter I use:

Before we set our hearts too much upon any thing, let us examine how happy those are who already possess it“. — Francois de La Rochefoucauld

May we all find what we’re looking for.

May we all like what we find.

And most importantly, it would seem, may we all be able to give it away so others may be blessed by it.

Everyday, I’m reminded how blessed I am to be alive. This makes me exceedingly grateful.

Case in point. Today I received a cortisone shot in my left heel. This is one of the most painful types of shots a human can get.

I told Dr. Curtis Wagner that I was thankful to have a foot to get a shot in. I know several people who are missing one or both of their feet.

What would they give to feel that aweful pain?

Probably everything.

My heart is set upon good health, in four key Mid-Life areas: Mind, Body, Spirit and Money.

My wife’s 94-year old Grammy used to say, “Health is Wealth“!

Words to live by and a goal to set our heart upon.

Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

The word “happiness” would lose it’s meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.” — Carl Jung

Make it a great, midlife day, because if you don’t, who will? 🙂

Mid Life day dream?

What do you do, every single day, that tells you, “Yes, I’m on the right track with my life. I am dreaming and doing, so that I may live without regrets.”?

This is a really tough one.


I believe it’s because most of us are insanely busy.

Anyway, here’s what I do. It may work for you. It may not.

I read for, think of and pray for, inspiration, every single day.

It took a long time for this daily habit to occur, and I’m so glad I got started and even more thankful that I never gave up.

It’s such a part of what I do now that it’s become a habit that requires about as much effort as getting dressed, going to the bathroom, or brushing my teeth.

Here’s a thought from Carl Jung that I just found, as I flipped through one of my 3-ring binders full of quotes and short stories – collected from the past 35 years:

Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”

Live, before you die. Do something great. If you don’t, who will? Carpe diem, and best wishes for your next inspiring moment. May you have so many that you feel blessed beyond measure. 🙂
