Humble beginnings is a common Family story

Using this photo signifies the photo upload issue continues. Made it through today’s first two posts without any issues.
Home back porch expansion
Our home was designed and built with two small steps down to a 10′ x 10′ concrete pad for a back porch. No roof. No money for more than this. i used irrigation pipes to “draw” our expansion plans.
back porch home expansion
We added a 44′ x 30′ concrete pad in 2000, eight years after our home was built…15′ roof covered and another 15′ screened in.

This photo is an experiment to see if it would work and it did so i’m leaving it. All of this started with a cartoon Mouse in 1928.

Humble beginnings is a common Family story.

Today is the third Sunday of Lent.

Jesus’s story is bathed in humility.

From being born in a stable…to the Savior of the World?

What if it was every day?

Rock sculpture towers at Glacier
A spiritual-looking photo from Summer 2018. Rock sculptures where Snyder Creek empties into Lake McDonald, in Glacier National Park. 

Just like January 1st, what if every new day felt like a Sunday?

Asking this in the context of Sunday being a typical (of course this varies for everyone) day of worship.

What if every day we felt a special sense of worship?

And what if not only every day, but all day?

Would our lives change?

Love in an elevator

Disney’s Bay Lake ariel view. Space Mountain upper left. i can see my house too.

 

Literally exhausted from the forced bump from Delta One flight to Chile. Exhausted from the absence of an 8-hour, flat posture sleep. Instead, forced to sit in a seat with limited recline and unable to put my feet up – a dreadful sleeping experience.

In a brief elevator ride at the W Hotel after the Disney Keynote speech, i asked the other rider a simple question.

This led to a quick (yet alert) exchange as we only climbed two floors.

He remembered and Googled my name.

We connected on LinkedIn yesterday and he said this…

The way you said hello to me in the elevator was refreshing. I had no idea you were giving a conference in Chile. Kudos to you! When I see a person with enthusiasm, I value it. I left corporate America to reinvent myself and…

Blessed beyond measure isn’t a cliche, it’s truth.

Live like you know this is true and you will consistently…

Live like you mean it.

Are you living the dream yet wanting more?

Jody Maberry and jeff noel
What a privilege to visit Disney’s Magic Kingdom with Jody Maberry.

 

Jody Maberry and jeff noel
We are by Lee Cockerell’s Disney Window on Main Street.

 

Jody Maberry and jeff noel
From serious to not-serious in 0.06 seconds.

 

Lee Cockerell's Disney window
This was where we stood, in the shadow of greatness.

 

Jody Maberry at Disney
A 30-second walk further and we stopped to enjoy the locals dancing and singing.

 

Jody Maberry and jeff noel
A few minutes later, more singing and dancing by the locals. It was cool for Chapin to meet Jody at our house and tag along to Magic Kingdom.

 

Are you living the dream yet wanting more?

Here’s how it probably shakes out for most of us.

  1. We have everything we need but can’t see it.
  2. We have an inaccurate definition for “having it all”.

To help me process this as i neared my 50th birthday in 2009, i wrote a book that focuses on:

• rethinking

• reprioritizing

• recommitting

 

Jody Maberry hosts Lee Cockerell’s podcast, Creating Disney Magic as well as Dan Cockerell’s podcast, Come Rain or Shine.
