“Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope, but do it with gentleness and reverence.” — Saint Peter
Perhaps hope is elusive to us during a midlife crisis.
Perhaps hope surrounds us during a midlife celebration.
All this time, I’ve been asking you to think about your answer to the simplest, but most important question a young person may ask you.
Are you inspired enough now to come up with your own unique and special answer?
“Associate reverently, and as much as you can, with your loftiest thoughts”. — Henry David Thoreau
There’s an old saying, “Garbage in, garbage out”. And another, “You are what you eat”.
We are what we repeatedly do.
Mid-life excellence is a habit. Not having mid life excellence is also a habit.
And remember, this is the hardest work you will ever undertake. So, if you’re looking for an easy way, I personally don’t think you’ll ever find it.
But please know, finding it is my greatest wish for you.
Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
