In a weird way, we are the only ones who can give ourselves permission to be authentic

One box of 54 Mid Life Celebration books
54 books, each uniquely signed, in gratitude for their passion.


An Indiana book club has been formed from the positive ripple effects of Mid Life Celebration: rethink • reprioritize • recommit

MLC will be the first book featured… this Friday, Feb 28.

The organizer, Monica, purchased (together with her Mom) 17 copies on Amazon over Valentine’s Day weekend.

So in gratitude, sent a free box of 54 signed copies. Each member will receive three free copies to extend the positive ripple effect.

What they don’t know yet is that each book contains a unique message – no two are the same.

Would have been much easier to just write my name.

Or to write the same message 54 times.

Would have also been easier to just keep dreaming about writing a book.

The long way is the short cut.

We know this.

In a weird way, we are the only ones who can give ourselves permission to be authentic.

Life changes the minute we stop waiting for permission.

Life is not a dress rehearsal.

Live like you mean it!

Feel free to share (no expectation, only hope).

Mid Life Purple Cow?

Mid Life Purple Cow?  It’s ok if you don’t know what this is.

It’s ok. But it’s a shame. Not a big shame, but a shame nevertheless.

Better late than never, right? So I began reading Seth Godin’s Purple Cow last week. Finished it yesterday.

If you seek encouragement because you dream bigger than most, and you often feel “stupid” when people comment on your big dreams, this is a must read.

It will make you feel better. I guarantee it (unless you’re an alien).

If you are a Purple Cow (remarkable), most of the herd dislikes you because you’re different. Because you’re annoying; threatening, in a way.

Being remarkable is risky. Playing it safe is risky. In life, we get to pick one. Don’t be a chicken.
