Dear readers, something unusually cool is happening. jeff noel, Midlife Celebration founder, can’t quite put his finger on it, but can undeniably say that writing about midlife has been so amazingly exhilarating that it’s almost as if it doesn’t matter if anyone reads it.
Sure, followers are nice. Yet after writing blogs so prolifically, the reasons for writing now are, well, changing. He’ll write about that tomorrow, most likely.
Dear Readers, jeff noel, Midlife Celebration founder, has been blogging everyday for 29 months. For real. Not missing a day, except to ensure the 3,000th Mid Life Celebration, post would hit on Halloween (2010). How scary was that? So now, noel is closing in on 5,000 blog posts – prolific blogger territory. All from a 100-day promise to jump start a history of procrastination and fear.
We have eyes to see, but no lens to focus. Too busy.
Too soon, too many come to find death calling.
Randy Pausch gained world exposure not because he was smart, but because he was dying and faced death with a contagious, indomitable courage – to leave a trail for his children and provide for his Family.
It saddens, but doesn’t surprise me that the world has mostly forgotten Randy’s message. Three years after Randy’s death, are you still running with the “follow-your-childhood-dreams” baton?
