Courage or comfort, not both

Taking a few Disney toys and a pin to Kuwait (7k miles from home) is easy and scalable on every trip, everywhere.

Brene Brown is a thought leader.

She says that you must choose between courage or comfort, you can’t have both.

She’s smart, no doubt.

Yes and, going to respectfully disagree with the statement.

Why?

While not an intellectual, at 60, coupled with deep and broad Disney experience and especially the Disney Institute leadership expertise, i’ll go up against anyone on personal and organizational vibrancy.

Any. One.

Any. Where.

Any. Time.

Why disagree with Brene’s claim?

Because i have both courage and comfort.

At 60, this is a reality.

So how can i be wrong?

Perhaps what Brene implies is that she cannot have both.

Then, what she says is worth wondering why she doesn’t have courage and comfort and why i do.

Not gifted, and as (formerly) insecure as the next person, yet my life’s work has put me in this position to speak authoritatively.

Weird to say it, but at the end of the day, how is what i have to say anything but true?

The beauty of 60 is that i believe we are both right.

Also at 60, i am certain that we, meaning anyone, believe what we want to believe.

If i were you, i’d believe better choices are available.

For example, courage and comfort.

Please don't tell me

On the edgy side of Christmas

anger
Anger serves no one. Surrender and forgiveness serves everyone. Tweet screenshot from yesterday (Christmas Eve).

Which is more egregious?

Someone thinks, “You’re too busy to come visit me.”

Someone thinks, “You’re too poor to come visit me.”

One has plenty of time but little finances.

One has plenty of money, but little time.

Bottomline, neither sees the other.

One offers, year after year, to pay for the other’s travel expenses.

So the Catholic Priest wipes out his iPhone at Mass

Catholic Priest using technology
Father Benjamin wiped out his iPhone while delivering the Homily yesterday.

 

What inspired me about Father Benjamin using his iPhone to read some scripture to support his Homily was how untraditional it was.

There had to be older parishioners who gasped.

You know, “Kids these days with their devices, blah, blah, blah.”

Yeah, and adults these days with their divorce rates, obesity, and hypocrisy.

Anyway, Father Benjamin’s passion for his message yesterday resonated with a 59-year old Dad in the very back row.

The first thing an Angel says

Highline Trail
About 2 miles into their first Highline Trail hike, July 30, 2017. Do not fear the distance nor the altitude.

 

It’s been said the first thing an Angel says to a human is, “Fear not. Be not afraid.”

Good stuff.

Dear Son

What’s holding you back from planning your funeral?

Love the courage of this resident’s choice.

 

If we aren’t brave, we gravitate to a victim mentality.

If we are brave, we gravitate to a thriving mentality.

Courage takes on many forms and has many oppressors.

It takes courage to thrive.

This i know first hand.
