I Don’t Mind, Do You?

Life Is As Simple As A Wildflower
Life Is As Simple As A Wildflower

Being busy is really just a part of life. People have always been busy. Yet, we live like ours is the first generation to face such challenges.

Listen carefully when older people talk. Pay attention to history. You’ll discover times have always been tough, and always very busy.

When we accept this as never going away, we can begin to live. But not until then. Once we accept it, we can work real hard to figure out how to survive well, and to live well. It doesn’t require much.

Are You? When Your Life Changes

Nearly Every Day

Time Flies (Carter's Been Gone 3.5 months)
Time Flies (Carter's Been Gone 3.5 months)

Do you ever feel like a broken record? Saying the same thing over and over again?

Good.  This means you’re on to something. And the more you explain it, the better you get at explaining it, and the more people you reach and the more intriguing your crazy dream becomes – not only for others, but also for yourself.

Yet knowing this is not enough. Why? Because most people are weak, overwhelmed, distracted, medicated, afraid, insecure. How do I know? Because I’m one of you.

After 14 months, I can count on one hand the number of people who’ve said, “Jeff, writing five differently themed blogs every single day is the coolest thing I’ve ever heard of”.

Life Is Mostly Overwhelming

What?
What?

Life. We love being alive.

We dread dying.

In between, we have to carve out our life.  A life that hopefully allows us to not only survive, but also to thrive somewhat.

To have mostly good days, a fair number of “bad” days, and occasionally a few great days.

Bad, good, great.  We will each define these differently, no doubt. That’s okay.  It’s all relative anyway.

So what’s the point?

The point is, what will today be?

Suomi Quotes?

Being inspired inspires others.

Most humans like quotes. We enjoy the way a small sentence or quick thought can summarize the essence of a larger body of work.

Some people are addicted to quotes, like me.

And some people find themselves quotable. This is usually by design, and it is also the mark of someone who’s been burned by Hell’s fire and came out purified, or at the very least, changed.

And in our busy, hectic, worried lives, small, digestible sound bites really satisfy our hunger for a laugh, for inspiration, for validation, for comfort – and on and on.

Quotes are good.

You can quote me on that.

Think He Loves His Cage?

Feeling edgy this morning. Feelin’ edgy for a week.

Ever feel like that?

U2’s Desire is not one of my favorites, however, it really fits today. Click Desire.

Not the song, the feeling. Desire.

Desire to do what?
