Spirituality is art

Timing (luck) is when preparation meets opportunity.

Spirituality is art.

Imagine the creating involved in order to love something or someone by letting them go.

Surrendering to what you want and hope for in order to allow someone else to follow the path they choose, which can be vastly different than your path.

The generous art of daily surrender, starting with self.

Journey On

Tough calls are easy

Six hours after a planned volunteer food delivery opportunity, we found ourselves at Disney’s Beach Club Resort. i was on the opening team here, in 1990.

No volunteer opportunity yesterday.

Why?

Things happened that made our decision easy.

Of course, it was not what we planned on.

We flexed. We adapted. We surrendered.

Thankful for it all and thankful from it all.

Sweet.

Dear Son

Let the punishment fit the crime and self-forgive

Disney podcast jeff noel
i’m not the wisest person in the world, but i’m the wisest i’ve ever been in 59 years – wise enough to have a podcast (coming soon, maybe tomorrow).

 

Driving home from school, we stopped at our mailbox so i could get the mail.

Attempting to put the car in park before it had come to a full and complete stop, the car jerked slightly.

The driver’s emotional reaction to his “mistake” was bigger than it needed to be.

Thinking he would self-manage this and quickly self-resolve/forgive, i noticed he wasn’t.

i reminded him that three weeks after i received my Pennsylvania driver’s license, i totaled our family car ( a giant station wagon).

It was Halloween night and there were trick-or-treaters everywhere.

The greatest blessing that came from totally destroying my parents’ car?

No one was injured.

No one was killed.

Both could have easily happened.

Unanswered Questions?

And miles to go before maturity

quote inspiring
Unconventional is the new higher education.

 

quote inspiring
Here’s where today’s MidLifeCelebration quote came from.

 

And miles to go before maturity.

We all know patience is a virtue.

Knowing means nothing without execution.

My patience was tested two days ago 15 hours into a 16 hour travel day.

In the most undisciplined, irreverent, and original manner possible…

Learn your shortcomings like you mean it.

Thank you for losing my patience.

It was indeed an undisciplined and irreverent learning method.

Maybe it was original.

How?

Seconds after i hung up the phone with Dorian, i knew i had failed.

What power does forgiving yield?

Disney Customer Service Speaker
The mother of all superpowers?

 

What power does forgiving yield?

Forgiveness sets the giver and receiver free.

Freedom.

Not forgiving holds you captive.

A prisoner.

Forever.
