Mourn, celebrate, or both

Disney Marathon detour
Walt Disney World Marathon sign…my gym on right. Walking home.

Mourn, celebrate, or both?

Life is a marathon, not a sprint.

Fifty-one years old.

Twin 17-year olds.

Husband of 25 years.

These are stats many people never get close to experiencing.

None of us who pass the half-century mark should carry too much (if any) regret.

What a blessing to have stats like those.

The Facebook Messenger note had the seed of death

Disney Business books
Disney Business books fill some of my shelves.

When we are at our best, we are unafraid of death.

When are we at our best and when do feel this way?

Never?

Maybe.

A week ago, the Facebook note was sent to nine people in messenger…the first people that came to mind in sharing the news.

i was in that group.

The message said that a dear Disney Institute colleague was “very sick” in the hospital.

First glance made it sound bad but not terminal.

My take leaned to terminal.

So i reached out to someone in our group i thought knew the most.

i , unfortunately, was correct.

In a matter of days, the Disney Institute (from the early 2000’s) group has grown to 40+.

Most of us will see each other in two days at her funeral.

At some point, our daily efforts should slowly and steadily begin our preparation for our exit.

We’re in charge of this and it ain’t no secret.

Too busy, right?

Where we tend to look for greatness

stoplight
Stop light on the drive to the gym yesterday.
Sandhill Cranes near gym
At the gym yesterday. Sent this to Jake at Hike734. Jake loves birds.
Sand Hill Cranes by gym
Context. Drove to gym yesterday instead of walked. Had a 9am eye exam.

We tend to look for greatness…

In others.

What if we looked for it in ourselves?

Ps. Comparison steals our joy.

Wells Fargo got caught doing egregious things

WWJD
Last night in a parking lot after driving to Wells Fargo to deposit a check…What Would Jeff Do?

 

Wells Fargo got caught doing some egregious things on a massive scale.

Wells Fargo is our bank by default.

When we moved to Florida in 1984 we opened an account with Coral Gables Federal, which later became First Union, which became Wachovia, which became Wells Fargo.

A run of 34 years of never switching our finances to someone else. All change was done to us, not by us.

On the phone with the branch manager yesterday, once again discussing Wels Fargo’s inability to allow me to use their mobile banking app to deposit a business payment check.

Their daily (and monthly) business deposit amount limit is one-size fits all.

After 34 years, we receive the same treatment as a day-one customer.

The “spiritual” opportunity from this below-average customer service process is this:

While i was initially bent out of shape by this, i no longer am.

To have a check too large is a blessing beyond measure.

It has been fun to see my transformation.

Doubtful you’d ever say this

dentist
He’s new. And untested. Everyone is putting up a front. Some are authentic and some are not. The challenge is they look similar.

 

WPS basketball game
Last night at our High School. Teen athletes are well versed in hard work. This karma gets tested when teens start paying rent and everything else.

 

The hard work of taking care of the temple.

Your temple.

What?

The temple housing everything keeping you alive.

Your body.

Not taking excellent care of it delivers the same result as if you intentionally said, “I don’t care about my health and I’ll be damned if I’m going to do anything about it.”

Happy Thanksgiving.

Seems ridiculous, i know.

It is.
