Nothing in excess and know thyself

High School Graduation
Dr. Brenda Fields gave an inspiring and practical speech.

 

Nothing in excess and know thyself.

Our Son’s Latin teacher has a remarkable reputation at High School, and she was overwhelmingly chosen by the students to deliver the 2018 graduating class the commencement speech.

A significant part of her speech revolved around the Enid – with the two main point being:

  1. Nothing in excess
  2. Know thyself

Sound wisdom back then.

And still today.

How much are you worth?

silence
Only in solitude and self-reflection will our deepest questions be answered.

 

How much are you worth?

In business, the easiest way to get a true reading is to quit working for someone else and go out on your own.

If you’re not willing to do this, it’s quite possible your sense of worth is grossly inflated.

In life, in the spiritual realm – depending on your convictions – your self-worth cannot be measured. It is far too great to calculate.

It’s quite possible that your spiritual self-worth is grossly deflated.

Muhlenberg College
Living to 76 back then was decently impressive.

 

Please indulge in spiritual self-care.

Embrace the notion of Faith, Hope, and Love.

Also embrace diversity of spiritual opinion and spiritual practice.

Decide how best to make your spirit come alive and serve not only others, but yourself as well.

Ever think like this?

Disney author jeff noel
Writing last night at Magic Kingdom, Day 100. Moments later, the woman in green sat on the step behind me (where the camera sat to take this photo.)

 

Little did i know the self-timer would catch the 86-year old woman (in green) as i was chronicling Day 100 of an impossible one-year writing challenge.

We spoke for 15 minutes and several times i mentioned i must leave to make the short trip home for dinner with my Family.

Even mentioned having an annual pass to add context for why anyone would leave Magic Kingdom at 7pm on a Friday night.

Later last night, the realization that not once did she ask anything about me.

When we age, do we become self-centered? Do we become lonely?

This brief experience is an opportunity to question ourselves and look in the mirror. Are we more like, or unlike, her?

Does it even matter?

Busy...Dreadfully Busy

Being still and quiet should never be far away

Epcot's Canada pavilion
Epcot’s Canada pavilion. Yesterday (a day early) i sent my client a text of this, telling her, “i’m in Canada today.”

 

Being quiet, still even, is rare. And valuable. Kinda like a power docking station for our spirit.

Even with a busy three-day business trip, i plan on carving out quiet, self-reflective space from otherwise busy days in unfamiliar places, surrounded by unfamiliar people.
