Our Choices Make Us

Commitment fuels more commitment

Overfed the movie
Overfed and Undernourished was fascinating. A documentary.

 

The four-hour flight to Orlando seemed grueling before it started, but the seat-back video screens allowed us to freely watch a wide variety of entertainment. Overfed and Undernourished was captivating, and inspiring.

From paralyzing to no big deal in one try

Highline trail
It was a major accomplishment.

 

Highline trail
The trail returned to less intimidating.

 

The Highline Trail was no less dangerous yesterday than a few days before, but it was far less intimidating the second time around. This afforded Cheryl the opportunity to appreciate what we (our son and i) did a few days prior. Until you conquer this personally, you have no idea – i literally didn’t know if i’d be able to turn around and go back.

When our Son and i hiked the scary 200 meter portion a few days prior, i didn’t know if i had the ability to turn around and return to the Logan Pass Visitor Center. Without going back over the same 200 meters we had just finished, it’s an 11-mile walk to the nearest road trailhead, with no other options; and no way to let Cheryl know what was happening. It would have been a disaster – that’s how afraid i was.

Hearts on fire?

iced watermelon
Yesterday morning after the Watermelon 5k.

 

Hearts on fire?

Being a Catholic Priest is demanding.

Sunday’s Mass was good. Did it set my heart on fire? Did it set anyone’s heart on fire?

A former Disney Institute colleague was a Priest for 10 years. He left because he was on call 24 hours a day. Never off.

How does one remain 100% passionate in every single encounter?

Well, for starters, go look in the mirror and start by asking there.

How Can You Tell?

Give pure humanity and see what happens

La'Porsha singing Diamonds
A single mom trying to break free from her situation.

 

While icing my calf yesterday afternoon, i watched the American Idol recording from the night before. Contestant La’Porsha disrupted the show with a stunning performance.

When judge Keith Urban finally got to speak he referenced a beautiful quote:

“I judge myself not on what i have but what I am willing to give.” What you just gave was pure humanity. It was beautiful.

As if that wasn’t enough, Kelly Clarkson brought everyone to tears three songs later.

PS. Couldn’t find the quote’s (the Keith referenced) author.

PSS. i cried during both songs.
