Mid Life Saturdays?

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 Repetition?

What is Mid Life Repetition?

My guess? It’s taking something important, and doing it over and over again.

It could also apply to unimportant things.

Either way, repetition is what creates habits. There may be exceptions, of course.

So here’s a repeat of a quote I posted awhile back, from Carl Jung:

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

It will be a challenge, but I will not back down from trying to develop the habit of Goodness.

Some say we become what we repeatedly think about. That can be a really good, mid-life choice. Carpe diem, jeff 🙂

More Goodness?

More?  Goodness?  More Goodness?

Mid Life Goodness?  Indeed.

At mid-life, shouldn’t we be on our way to making the world a better place?

Look, I’m an optimist.   That doesn’t make me a bad person, anymore than someone who’s not an optimist. Different strokes for different folks.  Fair enough?

How does one acquire mid-life wisdom in order to want to think about mid-life goodness all the time?

I don’t know exactly.   We might at least agree that we will all do this, or not do this, in our own unique way, on our own time schedules.

Here’s a tactic I use to practice courage.  And, I believe courage is a critical success factor.

He who asks a question is a fool for five minutes;  he who does not ask the question remains a fool forever“.   — Chinese Proverb

I love how quotes like this make me think at a different, and perhaps obvious, level.  Hope your day is filled with courage and great thinking.  Carpe diem, jeff 🙂

Mid-Life Celebration opinion?

Mid-Life Celebration opinion?

Who wants it? Who needs it? Who has it?

I just finished reading this short, but thought-provoking quote:

The more opinions you have, the less you see“. — Wim Wenders, German Film Director

Now, I’m starting to worry about “blind spots”.

Make it a great day, because if you don’t, who will? That just my personal opinion. Carpe diem, jeff 🙂

White Eagle

And how, you ask, are we to walk the spiritual path? We answer: say little, and love much; give all; judge no man; aspire to all that is pure and good“. — White Eagle

Make it a great Mid-Life day. It’s our attitude and our choice. Always is and always will be. It’s the one thing we do have control over.

PS. No one ever promised it would be easy. When I start feeling like my path is hard, I think of, or click on, Nick Vujicic.

Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
