The loss of slowness

florida living
Yesterday afternoon’s nap location. The rain encouraged me to sit outside, and eventually, convinced me to close the MacBook and get comfortable. That sign, upper right…

Going-To-The-Sun Road. T-minus 10 days.

 

The loss of slowness.

The rarity of quiet contemplation.

The battle between the overwhelm, distraction, connectivity – and – solitude, reflection, and peace.

Where does this battle leave you in your day-to-day?

Are you ok with it?

Still fighting for victory?

Given up?

What’s your next move?

Hurry, the clock is ticking.

Love and planning are not mutually exclusive

security cameras in Florida palm tree
Yesterday afternoon, i placed a security camera here to see if we have a critter in our porch attic.

While on the ladder, i looked up and was struck by this rare perspective.

 

Mother’s Day is nine days away.

Several days ago i ordered a couple vases of flowers for a few moms i know.

The flowers will arrive on Tuesday so they can enjoy the flowers the week leading up to next Sunday.

Today is Friday, May 4.

Love and planning are not mutually exclusive.

The peace and contentment emanating from being proactive is challenging to describe.

While not perfect, i am much better at over-focusing on things i used to under-focus on or ignore.

Changing your scenery can change things

Disney Keynote Speakers
Truth.

 

This post will sound like the antithesis of changing the scenery, but here’s how i counter that thinking – every morning, the first two hours are spent on a journey to thoughts i’ve never seen, or thoughts i haven’t seen in years.

Find creative ways to do the impossible – travel every day to someplace exciting.

Every morning after waking, i kiss my wife and son on the forehead as they sleep and then get down at the foot of the bed and say the same three prayers.

Every.

Morning.

Sometimes when i get down on bended knee, thoughts of the day’s to-do list creep in.

i catch this and start over.

Sometimes, i say the prayers real fast – too fast.

While i retired from Disney, i didn’t retire from working (making a good and decent contribution to society).

i hit the ground running each morning with two hours of writing, reading, praying, thinking – and finish this time block by 7am.

Only preach what you practice

Google maps
Just a moment in time yesterday. Almost there.

 

Universal Studios signage
Knowing how i got here and why i was here – surreal.

 

Disney Keynote Speakers
The best way to travel with two backpacks.

 

bicycle locked to bamboo pole
First time securing a bicycle to a bamboo pole. Couldn’t find a bike rack to save my life.

 

Disney Keynote Speakers
Wasn’t expecting this, but wasn’t surprised either – as soon as i walked inside.

 

apple watch fitness app
For posterity.

 

random photo
First time showing up for a speech in cutoff jeans and a sweat-soaked tee-shirt.

 

Only preach what you practice.

Not gonna lie, there was a moment of nervous uncertainty when the client and i met for the first time yesterday morning.

So many firsts (risks).

Many of us are hard to impress.

But what went down yesterday…i impressed myself.

Pretty rare.

And cool.

When is the best time to say goodbye to a loved one?

Yellow Dog Eats
Yesterday inside our lunch location. PS. Every day is a good to talk openly about life and all it means.

 

When is the best time to say goodbye to a loved one?

My theory is “sooner rather than later”.

Live a life that seizes your days and the people closest to you are crystal clear about how you feel about them.

Carry no baggage.
