Embrace the struggle and do this too

May you never lose your fire.

Embrace the struggle and do this too.

What?

In addition to embracing the challenges inherent with needing to stay continuously motivated, also welcome the results inherent in staying motivated.

The positive results compound exponetially over the decades. Be careful, so do the negative results.

Son, in 60 years, i have always experienced this – we reap what we sow.

Not the song that captured my attention

apple watch screen shot
My Apple Watch randomly grabbed a screen shot. No idea how or why?

Love Be The River is not the song that captured my attention. This one is.

It is supremely reassuring to me that a Father’s Hand is always there.

Always.

Uncertainty comes with the territory

You can’t bank on there being a reflection. Avalanche Lake, different day, but same week.

Uncertainty comes with the territory.

This is why Faith is critical.

If we had guarantees, Faith would be unemployed.

Like i tell myself and my immediate Family, you need to find your own belief system – and whatever you land on, believe it 110%, as if your life depends on it.

Ps. If you want freedom, it does.

Discipline

inspiring friend
Mike helps us with home improvement projects. His wife and my wife work together at Disney. Photo: yesterday after i walked home from the gym.

 

Just like going to the gym, or going running or biking, you need daily discipline to focus on your spirit.

Mike (above) and i had a deep, yet casual conversation about life and death.

A few years back, Mike was one of two people in a group of 11 who survived cancer treatment.

His cancer is back.

Mike has two choices.

He can opt to not have his ear removed, and die sooner than later.

Or…

He can have his ear removed, along with a big patch of the side of his face – down to the bone. A patch from his leg will be removed to reconstruct what’s taken from his face. Remove a couple teeth, reroute glands, nerves, etc.

He joked about his conversations with his Doctors who discussed prosthetic ear options.

Mike suggested a Star Trek Vulcan ear, so he can say he’s half Vulcan, like Spock.

Or, how about an on/off switch for when he’s near his wife.

His courage, faith, and perspective inspire me.

He’s an Army veteran.

He knows all too well how fragile and ugly llife is and how all we can do is make choices and move forward.

Consistently thinking this way requires a learned and applied discipline.

My advice to is this: learn it and apply it.

Some notes from college admissions info session yesterday.

Interfaith expansion.

The first year seminar – intro to college level discussion…25 topics.

High School beats your passion for curiosity out of you.

The other 3 seminars have 10-12 topics.

Perfect college student has passion for something.
