One Question A Day?

Why is simplicity so compellingly attractive?

Placing postage stamps upside down
The tradition (now a habit) of placing postage stamps upside down started in 1996. It was a way to say “i love you” to my dying Grandmother.

 

Why is it so challenging to simplify our life?

Simplify.

Simplicity.

Simple.

Doesn’t the very goal word personify simplicity.

How can simplifying be complex, difficult?

Why do so many people, and so many organizations, and so many countries struggle with this?

Why is simplicity so compellingly attractive?

Why is it so difficult?

It’s this simple

Yesterday, Christmas morning, the first photo from a 10-mile run.

 

Commitment isn’t when you feel like it.

It’s all day, every day.

Attitude.

Yours.

Go.

About Mid Life Celebration

Lunch at MOMS

Melts on Main Street Winter Garden
Last night was the annual Christmas Tree lighting on Plant Street.We sat outside, middle left are two sidewalk tables.

 

Lunch in a small town, on a breezy and sunny Florida afternoon. We ate. We talked. i just wanted to personally have some face to face time to say how grateful i am for her support. Joyce has done Mid Life Celebration, LLC’s taxes for four of it’s six years. And it took six years to make the first dime, and it took seven to make a profit.

Not many last seven years to see this finally happen.

On a side note, it will take two more years to pay off the debt incurred.

Everything Is Important

Hidden in plain sight

Yesterday morning in North Carolina.

 

Common sense and what is self-evident often gets lost because of it’s simplicity.

Balance (yeah right)

Simple gets over run by two never-ending tasks

Sanibel Island Sunset
First photo of yesterday’s Sanibel sunset.

 

The photo above was taken about half an hour before sunset.

As we age, and get further along in our career, many of the simple things that used to fill us with awe and wonder are replaced with deadlines and decisions.

Going to the beach is the mental equivalent to going to the hospital emergency room.
