The (Painful) Journey

The long way is the shortcut

The long way is the shortcut.

Just finished shuffling through five mailboxes.

First with Cheryl at 515am.

Then again with Chapin at 615am.

Three weeks ago we did back-to-back weeks at three mailboxes.

Why?

Because we aren’t in a hurry.

This morning’s “run” was the equivalent of one and a quarter laps around a high school track.

Ridiculously slow progress.

Couldn’t be happier.

You only get today once

You only get today once.

How’d you sleep last night, and when are you planning to climb into bed tonight?

Today, what are you planning to eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner (and snacks)?

Today, will you do anything that raises your heart rate (and deepens your breathing) for 20-30 minutes?

Today, will you do anything that requires your strength – also raising your heart rate and deepening your breathing?

Today, will you stretch your large muscle groups?

Today, will you move in ways that challenge your core?

Today, are you motivated to do the six things above or are you planning to skip today because tomorrow seems like you’ll be better situated to do them?

How Much Is Enough?

What will you get?

change and fear
At the counter register last night. A tip jar. A powerful reminder that most hate change. And a reminder that change is good.

 

 

What will you get that you don’t have now?

Afraid of change?

What do you gain by not changing?

What’s possible if you did embrace (uncomfortable) change?

Dear Son

The biking to High School

Morning routines
Writing two hours every morning helps me think. Thinking helps me do. Doing helps me serve. Serving helps me find peace and contentment. Peace and contentment floods me with joy.

 

 

The biking to High School, keep it up.

Find and hone your routines.

Experiment with them too.

Build something that serves you.

Adapt as the years go by.

For you will surely be challenged, always, to quit.

Life will ebb and flow.

In the darker times, don’t cave.

Lean into the discomfort of finding new and better ways.

Take care of the temple housing everything keeping you alive.

It will bring you a peace and contentment that will make you rich – rich with joy and gratitude.

Hint: You’ve walked a mile in their shoes.
