Love the prep

Disney couple in the mountains
We can’t wait to return. An active lifestyle and frugal lifetime spending prepped us for what we do now.

Love the prep.

Love the preparation you’ve done to lead your life the way you have.

Surrender to the mistakes and missteps you’ve had.

And simultaneously celebrate what they taught you.

Bonus: celebrate surrendering.

Make every day a day worth celebrating

Family Christmas
Life is a blur. Enjoy that. Having Chapin along for 19 years has been icing on the cake. So insanely lucky.

Make every day a day worth celebrating.

Want to know the value of a single day?

Ask someone who’s counting theirs.

Hopefully as we get closer, we become clearer and more certain.

Trust your gut and believe all the way.


i told Wayne that we celebrate birth as an extraordinary moment. i followed that up with my belief that death should be celebrated the same way.

If you believe that you are going to be reunited with God, Jesus, or whomever, the transition from an Earthly life to a Heavenly life ought to be incredibly exciting.

Loyalty is an easy-to-understand business concept, but are we brave enough to apply it to life in general?

And are we advocates, unwavering in our affection and affinity to the product or service (eternal life)?

i asked Wayne’s permission to pray with him. i have to admit that as i held his hand, i hoped my prayers became a catalyst for him to .think .differently




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.

Holy cow this is amazing

Inspiring Facebook update


(photo: It is in the giving that we receive. The long way is the shortcut.)

Do you follow someone with a title or someone with courage?

The weirdest thing yesterday was removing the Disney Institute engagements from the Apple personal calendar for November, December and January.

Weirder still is entering new engagements in their place for Mid Life Celebration.

Holy cow this is amazing.

Dude, just keep it to yourself

The wonder of it all is quite remarkable


Note to self: you have a very strange sense of remarkable dwelling within you. It mostly feels like something that only happens to rare, fortunate, hard working individuals.

You have been incredibly faithful in following your dream.

Please do not back down from this feeling, nor try to downplay it.

But keep it to yourself, ok?
