Going the extra inch is like exercise

Ran two miles yesterday without pain. Remarkable.

Going the extra inch is like exercise.

You can consistently make small (inches) choices like taking the stairs, parking in the last row, going to bed early, and always having apples and bananas in your kitchen (for snacking, or dessert).

Don’t let what you can’t do – train for a half-marathon – stop you from what you can do (the little things that add up).

To cap off those glorious 36 hours, the talk of a lifetime before driving

Epcot Teppan Edo
Dined here more than all other Disney World restaurants combined


A huge benefit to living balanced is the ability to prioritize fairly easily and intuitively. Meaning if something feels off balance, even just a little, we can spend our energy getting back into synch.

Family time or exercise?

Both, even with extremely limited time.

Windermere 5k one morning, gym afterwards, dinner together at Epcot later, a serious father/son talk, and five mile run yesterday.

To cap off those glorious 36 hours, the talk of a lifetime before driving to the airport yesterday afternoon.

The harder we work, the luckier we get.

Come To Jesus Time?

Crown of thorns or a beach sand spur?

Here’s yesterday’s message told differently. Someone tells you texting while driving is bad and you can now see that it makes sense not to. But you will not stop texting while driving because you do not understand. Once you or a friend is severely injured (or worse), you will finally understand.

Insight: A “come to Jesus” talk implies extreme humility, usually provoked by our stupid or immature actions.

Why Don’t You Care?

We say we care, but we don’t really mean it.

If we cared, we’d figure out a way.

While I’m talking about our health, this really applies to everything.

Oh no, looks like I have a lot of work to do.

It’s Completely Up To You

What you do today is completely up to you.  Always has been.  Always will be.

Yes, everyone has obligations that must be attended to.  Yes, there are things that come up unexpectedly – and sometimes these events are tragic.

Yes, it’s difficult.  Yes, it’s overwhelming.  Yes, it’s confusing, frustrating, painful and on and on.

Thank you for listening.  You may have thought this was written for you.  Well, sort of.  Mostly though, I write to myself.  So, please don’t take offense to the tone.

If we can’t talk honestly and openly with ourselves, we probably can’t with anyone else either.  And even more than Halloween, that scares the heck out of me.
