Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

What a joy it must be to have the honor, and blessing, to be called Mother, Mom, or my personal favorite, Mommy!

And if you’re a Mom at Mid Life, hope you and yours have a great Mid Life Celebration today.

A mid-life quote, just to sprinkle a little mid life insight on your thoughts today:

The real compensation of a right action is inherent in having performed it“.  — Seneca

Make it a GREAT mid life celebration for the special Mothers, Grand Mothers, and Great Grand Mothers, in your life.  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

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 🙂
