Of course, we are all busy. But not too busy to seize the moment. You know how challenging this is. We all do. Sometimes we win and sometimes we get “buried”.
Last night was a “victory”.
Started the day writing five blogs, with a Pastor shadowing me. Then worked a corporate job (which I love). Then picked up our son at summer camp. Then drove to the Apple Store for a one-to-one session. Then dinner at the Mall food court. Then the long drive home.
The sun was setting as we drove through town. We stopped at the north end of town to have dessert and catch the small town parade as it passed by.
Saturday my son and I ran errands and spent the day doing stuff. I constantly remind him that were we live is a special place. Some people only get to visit once or twice in a lifetime. We drove through it on our way home.
Watching (not really, more like listening) ABC Evening News a few weeks ago, Vice President Joe Biden spoke of fond memories and important lessons he learned from his mother.
She had died the day before.
Of all the things Vice President Joe Biden said, it’s his mother’s advice at the top here, that resonated the most.
Personal responsibility is really the key to success. I’ve known this all my life and you have too.
Having a ten year plan has really helped me see what’s still possible, but not guaranteed.
Not six months. Ten years.
PS. This is the first dupe post. By accident. Seems it posted January 9 at Lane 8, but for some reason it also sat in jeffnoel.com It is a major rule to not recycle content here. I’m gonna let this one ride though.
Why? Because one dupe post ain’t gonna end the world. Besides, the endings are different, unbeknownst to me.
