The manner in which one endures what must be endured is more important than the thing that must be endured.

The reward for being a midlife warrior isn’t readily apparent

Try to tell the Great Dane he is not a lap dog. Try to tell ourselves we can be anything.


Second day back from the four-day Senior Assisted Living and Nursing Home visit. Wrapping up the afterglow, inspiration and insight with today’s five posts.

The reward for being a midlife warrior isn’t readily apparent. Bottomline reality is this:

Life is hard.

In nature, it’s called the food chain. Everyday, living things must accept their place in the chain and fight for their survival. Nature never takes a day off.

We can take solace in knowing our weariness from the daily grind is a gift. Or we can carry an unbearable burden if we see this as a curse.

Choose wisely.

Be fit. It’s the only way to thrive.

The two things it takes to go against the inevitable

West Orange High School vision and mission statements
Yesterday at 7:15am.


The inevitable repetition of the daily obligations, expectations, and challenges is enough to have us throw up our arms in surrender and quit – to quit trying to live a remarkably vibrant life.

It takes a special indomitable will and positive outlook to go against the inevitable.

The opportunity is available to everyone.

Almost daily (and often all day) i must remind myself of this.

All that overcoming the obstacles yesterday does is give me the opportunity to start all over again today.
