Dear Son

In love with your morning routine?

inspiring quote
Easy to gloss over. Dangerous too.

 

What’s your routine each morning after you awaken?

How many times does your clock sound before your feet hit the floor?

(let’s agree not everyone sets a clock to go off, and not everyone has feet…i’m fully aware there are exceptions to literally everything – except death – so the use of generalizations has a place in our world)

What are your dominating thoughts the first 5, 10, 15, or 30 minutes?

Gratitude, hope, purpose?

Resentment, dread, confusion?

Writing helps me process where i’ve been, where i’m at, and where i’m going.

What do you do to process those three things?

Every morning we awaken, our routine begins again.

In love with your routine?

Just another ordinary day

Orlando sunrise
Was compelled to climb out onto the roof.

 

Yesterday, a Saturday, began like every other ordinary day.

Like the 2,500 previous (and consecutive) days, i was up early to start the morning routine.

This includes two hours of reading, praying, thinking, and writing.

Along comes the predictable sunrise, but this one was different.

It compelled me to crawl through a window onto our roof.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Does our day start with an outline that sets us up for success?

It comes down to the start of each day doesn’t it? And this tone is set whether we are conscious of it or not.

The day began at 3:30am Mountain Time.

Pray.

Read.

Think.

Write.

Run.

Head to work.

About Mid Life Celebration

Mid Life Celebration is finding joy in the routine

Sanibel Island Beach Sunflowers

 

Mid Life Celebration is about finding joy in the routine, mundane, common, everyday experiences.

The moments and things that we have become desensitized to.

Like stopping to photograph these flowers along the roadside.
