Commence with the new life

Commence with the new life.

Wait, what?

Scary to think about on Halloween 2019, right?

Exciting to think about on New Years Eve 2019, right?

Scary and exciting are life-long companions.

When i retired on Halloween, it was super scary because i wasn’t retiring from work, just from the corporate world.

When i quit drinking on New Years Eve (not January 1st), it was exciting because i knew i could not fail on this, the third serious attempt to stop.

Told you that to ask you this, “Is your big goal for 2020 enough to remarkably scare and wonderfully excite you?”

About Mid Life Celebration

The early days of Mid Life Celebration

Mid Life Celebration art 2008…the pen is added to reveal the use of 8.5 x 11 printer paper for the canvas.

Originally, only four themes were created: mind, body, spirit, work. The colors; grey matter, brown as median skin color, red for blood, and green for USA dollars.

Trying to find an image for brain/mind. The post-it note was an easy way to add the edit.

The early days of Mid Life Celebration…yesterday, i stumbled upon these crayon sketches and handmade business card ideas from December 2008 and January 2009.

Today, March 10, 2019, on this “Spring Forward” clock change morning, it’s helpful for this moment of pause to see what the dream seed looked like a decade ago.

PS. i coined the phrase Mid Life Celebration somewhere around 2001, less than a year after becoming a dad. Officially incorporated the LLC January 1, 2009.

Five Daily Blogs, Seriously?

How long have you been blogging every day?

Walt Disney
It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.

How long have you been blogging every day?

Nine years and eleven months, to be exact.

Five daily, differently-themed blog posts written without ever missing a single day.

In 31 days the unthinkable happens.

Year 11 starts.
