Merry Midlife Christmas.
“I have no gift to bring, pa-rump-a-ba-bum….”
“….that’s fit to give a King, pa-rump-a-bum-bum….”
While thinking about what to write on a day like today, it’s incredibly humbling, and immensely joyful and glorifying to know that “I got nothin” on a day like today.
“Shall I play for you, pa-rump-a-ba-bum…..”
“Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity! I say let your affairs be as one, two, or three and not a hundred or a thousand… We are happy in proportion to the things we can do without.” — Henry David Thoreau
Mind. Body. Spirit. Money. Otherwise known as Balance. This is the second of two posts today. A double shot!
Do you know anyone who epitomizes work-life balance? I do not. So I took matters into my own hands and came up with a life-changing model. It’s ridiculously simple.
MIND – Mental Health, Learning, Attitude
BODY – Physical Health & Wellness
SPIRIT – Spiritual Health; Faith, Hope & Love
MONEY – Financial Health; Job, Career, our contribution to society
I’ve literally spent a lifetime searching for the secret recipe for balance. Since becoming a Father nine years ago, this is the one I’m convinced is the key to transforming my life.
Focus on Life’s Big Four. Hey, I’m not a scientist or a genius, just a common man who looks at things differently and likes to keep it simple.
