Mid Life Rear View Mirror

Get A Grip & Be Prepared
Get A Grip & Be Prepared

Ever wonder how you’ll handle all of the challenges you face today?

And let’s suppose we actually do get a handle on our overwhelming challenges, then what?

What are the odds that we’ll be overwhelmed again soon?

Maybe I should go back to drinking everyday.  After a few drinks, we are medicated enough to stop worrying about today – it can wait until tomorrow.  That’s a nice relief – no more worry today.

But it mostly can’t wait.  If we do wait, more stuff is added to our “pile”.

Then we reach for our “midlife medication”.

Why we fail to look in the rear view mirror and see what is coming is beyond me.

Well, it used to be beyond me. Now, it’s staring me in the face. Every day.

It’s a ton of work, but at least I’m being honest with myself.

Talk about mid-life peace of mind.

Well, not talk. Do.

Find a million ways to get and stay motivated, right?

The Internet offers limitless opportunities to get valuable information. One of the things I do is experiment with various email subscriptions to helpful mid life health topics.

Everyday Health is one of those that gives more than I can keep up with. However, I do scan every email they send and here’s one that resonates. It may also help you.

Click here to gain insight on mid life hoarding and the possible link to OCD.

Insights and knowledge help us move closer to having Peace at Mid Life, even if we are, or know people, who are Hoarder’s (with or without OCD).

Mid Life Updates

Rethink, Reprioritize, Recommit
Rethink, Reprioritize, Recommit

Happy Monday everyone.  Hope you had a great weekend. I actually worked Saturday at my “real job” – yes, I’m a career employee at a large company.

This whole five daily blogs thing is like a hobby, like growing a garden or something. And as any avid gardener will tell you, “It’s a labor of love.”

Quite literally, a labor of love – for a child.

Anyway, back to the updates:

1.  Erika Liodice’s Mid Life Celebration Guest Blogger post yesterday was a first here. Please check out her site, Beyond The Gray, if you want a midlife perspective from a not yet 30-year old.  Erika gave me “my first big break” as a Guest Blogger.

2.  The numbers thing the other day. (gulp) Well, that was sort of like a time capsule to look back on later.

3.  February is about Peace. Peace to me means –  tranquility, balance, solace, contentment, harmony, simplicity, acceptance.

Mid Life Leadership Paradox?

Leadership Pair-of-Boxes?

Midlife leadership paradox, or, midlife leadership pair of boxes?

Pete Blank used to work as a Leader at The Walt Disney World Resort. Now, he’s an entrepreneur and Leadership coach and professional speaker.

I subscribe to his blog and wanted to share one that is particularly relevant as we pursue a mid life celebration.  Click here to read.

As we try so desperately to simplify, we apparently have complicated things and actually made them much worse.

Is this possible?

MidLife 50-Year Old Virgin?

Am I a 50-year old mid life Guest Blogger virgin?

Not any more.

Beyond The Gray posted an interveiw with me last week. What joy! How cool is that?  Pretty cool.

Click here to go directly to the Mid Life Celebration Guest Blogger interview.

Few things are more joyful than doing something positive for others. This is simply a starting point. Expect more of these as time marches on and don’t be surprised if I ask you to be a Guest Blogger.

Seriously.  It could happen.  Will you be ready?  Do you have something important or funny (or both) to say?

I guarantee you do. No, seriously.  You have talents and gifts that no one else has. And if you’ve never realized this before, may I humbly ask you to give some consideration to this thought?  Carpe diem.
