The subtly painful truth about growth

Obligatory photo. From Rising Sun Motor Inn, head East and you’ll you leave Glacier and can drive North a few miles before re-entering Glacier.

This was a first for the teen, and a second for me.

Yee-haw!

 

Overcoming is the path to growth.

Little did i know yesterday morning that the day would end with a major personal achievement – overcoming a severe fear. And it had nothing to do with horses.

.

Note to myself for posterity: 08.02 Tuesday breakfast at Many Glacier, Cracker Flats two-hour horseback ride, lunch at Swiftcurrent, relax at Rising Sun, dinner at Logan Pass, Cheryl was not up to hiking Hidden Lake Trail so Chapin and i did the High Line trail entrance. The Highline Trail has always frightened me.

Is there one simple secret to a positive attitude?

Airport parking
i see parking in the very last row at the busy airport a blessing.

 

Look only for goodness and blessings and that’s what you’ll find. To deny this would be illustrating my point. #gratitude

Dear Son

Writing began, and continues, one single, solitary day at a time

So unimportant to call out a single, ordinary day – yesterday was Monday, November 23, 2015.

 

Dear Son, i often end emails and social media private messages with this challenge, “Be amazed and be amazing.”

At the completion of the first day of a self-imposed 100-day writing challenge which began April Fools Day 2009, i had five blog posts. On April 2 i wrote five more. That’s how it all began. And that’s how it continues – one single, solitary day at a time.

Believe it or not, i was amazed that i actually did what i said i was gonna do. That’s the surest way to be amazed and be amazing.

Life’s twin secrets to success

Movie tagline for Hillsong
No. Awaken everything. Spirit is only one of life’s five big choices.

 

Focus and discipline is the key to life. Personally and professionally. Spiritually, mentally, physically.

Shhhh, it’s a big secret.

Authenticity (New Currency)

Using all they have to fight the temptation to feel like a victim

Our perspective determines our reality

 

Our frame of reference (perspective) is what transforms us from survivors to thrivers.

Life is hard.

For everyone.

Even the ones that seem immune.

They are not.

They are just using all they have to fight the temptation to feel like a victim.
