Blessed Beyond Measure?

Was i supposed to feel compassion and pity?

Sunset last night from hotel room.

 

Was i supposed to feel compassion and pity?

Asked a worker yesterday, “How’s life been treating you?”

Him: With a heavy sigh, “I’m working two jobs.”

Me: “Sorry to hear that. Hang in there.”

The long walk home (to the Omni) last night i rethought the conversation and wished i would have asked, “How many hours are you working?”

Why?

Because a gut feeling says the number of hours i spend working is equal to or greater than his combined two-jobs total.

He never asked, “So what about you?”

i pray especially focused prayers for people who feel like a victim. The prayers revolve around them discovering gratitude as a weapon to fight against “feeling sorry for themselves”.

Additionally, the prayers focus on “the victims” being more aware and empathetic to everyone they encounter. Why? It’s helped me over the course of my life and i am convinced it will help almost anyone.

Prayers Please

Should simple prayers start our day before everything else?

Sandhill Cranes meet Disney Business Advisor
Yesterday returning from trip to Bank.

 

Should simple prayers start our day before everything else?

If no, why?

If yes, are we doing it every single morning?

If no, why?

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Prayers Please

We shall not pass the way again

Windermere Prep High School Basketball milestones
Praying for safe travels for all fans (for all teams) tonight.

 

We shall not pass the way again.

For the seniors, this is a once-in-a-lifetime moment.

May everyone pass through it safely.

And may the lessons learned carry over to the life they lead after High School.

How Can You Tell?

Would being an OCD idiot benefit someone else?

Deplaning

 

(photo: Deplaning at Orlando-Sanford airport yesterday after a 10-day trip with Family.)

Praying that he gets the courage or the resources to take action.

The guy on the left has the type of mole on his chin that exceeds all the warning signs for getting an unusually large, irregularly shaped and dark colored mole looked at.

It’s not on the bottom of his chin where it would be more hidden, but front and nearly center so that every time he sees himself it reminds him.

Praying that he has already taken action and it’s benign, and that I’m an OCD idiot.

Fun is in the spiritual freedom

Disney Institute Keynote Speakers

 

(photo: Photo pulled from Google search. Old Disney Institute collateral piece. Circa 2004. Fun.)

Praying for creative, and, authentic wisdom.

Disney Institute FaceBook update yesterday:

“Looking to transform your company culture…upskill your leaders…or reimagine your customer experience? It CAN be done! Here’s how we can help (with a link to their website).”

This is Mid Life Celebration’s offering as well.

Kinda cool how alike Disney and MLC are.

Cut from the very same cloth.
