Excellent post and thanks for sharing Ellen Goodman's column. I teach at a college and I reference the movie Groundhog Day as a way to illustrate "small wins." We have to take pleasure in the ordinary and celebrate. Thanks

Drew--This post really resonated with me. I think it is great advice. But a name seems like such a significant decision--similar to naming a kid! I have noticed that many people seem to use their name and associates which does not tell the public what their business does. So I agree with you and as always, I appreciate the great advice you share in blogs. Jann

You should read about how art is changing the landscape and attitude of people in Des Moines. This weekend was the ribbon cutting for the new sculpture park and people have been crawling like ants around downtown. Art makes life interesting and much more fun. Mrs. Conover had it figured out. What is she doing now? Is she still teaching? Thanks NEW!

It sounds as if they are really healthy people who have figured “it” out. Based on what I have read and studied, the key is to keep learning, growing, actively involved, and connected. They are doing that and that is great! Thanks NEW!

Thanks Ashley for reading. I think the key word is “grow.” As long as we keep growing through learning, there is no end to what we can learn and to what we can become. Good thoughts on a beautiful day. NEW!

Katlyn—Thanks for sharing your experiences. Now is all that matters. Why does that sound so simple, but seem so difficult to remember or practice?

Chrys—What an interesting insight about yelling FIRE vs. RAPE! That is fascinating and I will remember it. Remind me to tell the story about when I yelled HELP in a store. Congratulations on certification in CPR. That is smart. Thanks for reading.

Loved the post Drew. I am afraid, but getting closer to pulling the trigger, jumping off the cliff, and going after a dream. We were singing a hymn in church on Sunday that had the verse--let courage be our friend and let wisdom be our guide and I could not stop thinking--What am I afraid of? Just go for it. Too much thinking ...
