jeff noel Aggressively Unfancy?

Is jeff noel aggressively unfancy?  Well, one thing for certain, I’m certainly not too funny when I blog.  But I sure do try to be aggressively unfancy.

And the concept of being unfancy is one most of us have never heard of. We have, but not in those exact words.

Aggressively unfancy means, to me, a person who is not focused on looking smart or sexy.  Sort of an ordinary person who deep down inside understands that they are blessed beyond measure simply by being alive.  And that that is more than enough.

Having a roof over your head, food on your plate, someone to love and someone to love you back.  Ya with me?  (this one’s for you MDJ)

Having a car that starts every time, someone in your life who is more important than you, a clean shirt and indoor plumbing – these things make us rich.  And potentially, aggressively unfancy. But certainly not funny.  Ya with me?  (this one’s for everyone)

When’s Your Funeral?

Morbid thought or inspirational thought?

Inspirational thought!

Why?

Because when we realize that tomorrow is not guaranteed, perhaps we will put more focus on today.

Looks good on paper, but is incredibly elusive.  The whole “live in the moment” thing is very challenging to do.

Have you ever tried it?  I mean, day after day, after day.  Month after month, after month….

My Friend Said This

“To know is to do.  To know and not do, is to not yet know”. —  jeff’s friend

Said another way:  “Common sense needs to be common practice”. – jeff noel

Otherwise, it’s like we don’t even know what common sense is.

Yes, this is painful to admit.  Yes, it’s not easy to apply common sense. Yes, our lives will become better (not perfect) if we apply more common sense to our lives.  Yes, it’s completely up to us. Always has been.  Always will be.  Carpe diem!
