Tempted, at Mid Life?

“Virtue alone can’t build character.  Temptation must have a hand”.  — Unknown

Who knew temptation actually had a positive side to it?

Make it a GREAT mid-life day, because if you don’t, who will.  If not today, when?  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

Define Life?

The adventure of life is to learn.  

The purpose of life is to grow.

The nature of life is to change.

The challenge of life is to overcome.

The essence of life is to care.

The opportunity of life is to serve.

The secret of life is to dare.

The spice of life is to befriend.

The beauty of life is to give.

         —  Unknown

However you define life, I hope you find it abundantly today.  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

Bank of Bad Habits?

“All our corrupt passions must be subdued, and a complex habit of virtues such as meekness, lowliness, faith, hope and love of God and man be implanted in their room before we can have the least title to enter into the Kingdom of God”.  — George Whitefield

While George Whitefield  suggests complex habits, may I be so bold as to suggest that we try to keep it simple?

Mid Life Simplicity?

Hardly.  But the idea sure beats, Mid Life Complexity.

Make it a GREAT Tuesday, because if you don’t, who will.  If not today, when?  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

Pushy at Mid Life?

What a GREAT day to be alive!

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.

Why?

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.

Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

Mid LIfe Mission Statement

Here’s a free resource for developing your Mid Life Mission statement

In my 50 years on Earth, I’ve asked thousands of people what the meaning of life is.  Seriously, I have.  And still do.

Know what the most common response is?

Surprise?

Second most common response?

Guilt.

I’ll bet right now that 99% of you reading this don’t have an answer that rolls of the tip of your tongue.

And the one percent that does have an answer, or thinks they have an answer – their answer will be so unprepared that you and I would find it difficult to clearly understand.

That is why, if you want to leave a legacy for the important people you love, I highly recommend you consider creating some concise, and inspiring,  answer to life’s big question.
