You were born for what it takes

Two hawks in tree while walking to gym. Animals totally get their vessel is all they have.

This is a debt of honor.

There is no law that requires me to pay the debt for the gift of a human life vessel (body).

It is this debt, for which i can never repay, for which i choose to honor in a simple yet profound way.

The debt is repaid simply by honoring the temple housing everything keeping us alive.

My first 3 half-marathons

This morning is the Disney half-marathon. My first 3 half-marathons began and ended at our mailbox.

My first 3 half-marathons began and ended at our mailbox.

No trophy.

No participation medal.

No commemorative runner’s bib.

Not even a mention on social media.

i just did it.

Maybe that’s the slogan that should replace just do it.

PS. Not judging people who seek the recognition, just saying there’s another option, one that i believe pays far deeper dividends. i’ve done both, which allows me to offer a personal comparison.

Day

Hiking 11 miles roundtrip on Grinnell Glacier trail was a decision that only took a moment to make. The hike took all day. The joy we get from this day radiates still.

Here’s a train of thought for the new decade that begins in three days:

  • Moment
  • Hour
  • Day
  • Week
  • Month
  • Quarter
  • Year
  • Decade
  • Life

If Disney Ran Your Life, you learn to instinctively over-focus on the same things you used to under-focus on or ignore.

You learn to be intentional where you used to be unintentional.

The power that a decision we make in a day has the power to grow and influence by the week.

Mourn or rejoice is up to you

The first sunny day, yesterday, was day seven. But by 4:00 PM, we knew the odds of seeing the big orange ball dip into the Gulf of Mexico were close to zero. Photo: 2:00 PM.
Walking to the beach at 5:30 PM and gazing over the sea grape bushes.

We did not mourn because the rose bush has thorns, we rejoiced because the thorn bush has roses.

We didn’t mourn because the clouds blocked the sun, we rejoiced because we are all together at one of our favorite places.

We also rejoiced because it wasn’t raining and because our three layers kept us warm enough.

Lose the weight

Wind is an intriguing Pixar short story. Wind stereotypically doesn’t move heavy objects. Great habits usually move heavy objects.

Want to feel lighter?

Drop everything that weighs you down.

You’re welcome.
