This past week, I’ve had a heightened sense of awareness of how lucky I feel, for a variety of reasons.
I will even go as far as to say I feel blessed beyond measure.
Why do I feel this way?
Because I carved out some time to reflect on a couple of serious challenges that I faced this week.
I hope you have a great weekend and that you find a little time for yourself.
If you do, you might also come to realize your fantastic blessings.
Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
PS. Jeremy Camp has a CD entitled “Beyond Measure”. Here’s one of his songs, “There Will Be a Day“, from You Tube:
Songs like this remind me of the blessing a simple promise holds. Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
On April 1, 2009, I accepted a long overdue challenge from our Priest.
And I’ve been doing it every day since.
Doing the math – that’s about 70 days in a row. Not a bad start, considering how long it took to finally make a commitment to change my habits.
What do I do each morning?
I’ll tell you tomorrow.
I start each day on my knees. In prayer. I say my three, all-time favorite prayers.
If people only remember one thing about you after you’re gone, what will it be?
I hope for me, it’s. “Jeff had a thankful heart”!
Make it a GREAT day! Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
Did the Orlando Magic do it? Did they make history, and win their first ever NBA finals game?
Here’s this morning’s Orlando Sentinel article.
Do you ever challenge yourself to make your own history?
I mean, do you try to get better at things, or make a bigger difference. Or do you settle for, “That’s just the way it’s supposed to be for me, because that’s the way it’s always been”.
Wishing you an historical day. Seize it! jeff noel 🙂
At the beginning of April, I decided to see if I could develop a new habit.
Habits are easy to start if you’re not trying, especially if they are something that sounds like this:
“The easier it is to do, the harder it is to stop“.
So it also works this way:
“The harder it is to do, the harder it is to change“.
Don’t believe it? Then try to wake up and kneel by your bed, for just a minute, to say a few prayers. “Dude, if it were easy, you’d already be doing it”, is what I say to myself.
Made 26 straight days, until this morning. I’m forgiving myself though. Know why?
I woke up in at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge – Kidani Village, in a spectacular room with a spectacular view. Disney Vacation Club’s newest offering opens May 1.
I later said the three payers in the car as I drove to downtown Orlando, to do my civic duty as a Juror.
Good luck tomorrow on whatever it is you are trying to do or stop doing. I know first hand the challenges, and rewards, for not giving up.
Get started and never stop. Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
