Dear diary

One of these went to Kuwait, but was never received. Sent a second. Not sure of the outcome. Did my best at a busy time in life.

Dear diary.

We’ve all heard that phrase.

It’s a classic, predictable, safe and consistent way to start a conversation with yourself.

Blogs can resemble a diary.

Mid Life Celebration’s five daily, differently-themed blogs are written as a life guide to our Son.

It’s our Son’s dad (me) talking to himself and capturing it for his son to have as a potential asset.

Asset value is entirely up to him.

It is not lost on me that he may never use them.

The beauty of this gamble is that you cannot attempt to help another without automatically helping yourself.

Even if he never reads the blogs, my batting average is .500

No Baseball Hall of Fame player has ever batted close to .500

Insight: Create your own rules for motivation. Writing and crafting my own stories is one of the million ways. Just because you may be the only person doing it this way, doesn’t mean it isn’t brilliant.

And Furthermore

Building on yesterday’s jeff noel blog post…..

Blogging every day, and posting on the Internet for the world to see, adds an element of risk few people can comprehend.


Because anyone, and I do mean anyone, can “see what you think” – can “see what you value”.

There is also a saying in life, “Nothing ventured, nothing gained”. Risk has it’s own rewards.

Are you determined to find out what they are? Carpe diem.

Want To Know The Benefits?

One of the benefits to blogging every day is going through the process of what to write and how to write it. Only people who “journal” or “write a diary” daily can fully appreciate this phenomenon.

And, if I do say so myself, the process of posting it on a public Internet blog for the world to see, adds an untapped benefit that “private writers” have yet to discover.

The daily act requires more effort than occasional blogging, in my opinion. Over time, your creativity and your topics could dry up. Plus, you really have to think long and hard about what you value. And if you ever expect people to “follow your path”, you have to know and study your audience.
