RIP Randy Pausch

The first time I heard Randy Pausch’s lecture I was inspired. The second time I was inspired and motivated. The third time I was inspired, motivated and actually made some changes in my life.

You get the point. No matter how many times I’ve heard this or read it, it evokes an emotion or an action. I hope it does the same for you.

2008 – The Halfway Point

Today marks the halfway point for 2008. And while I’m always grateful, days like this put me in an especially good mood.


I know how I’m celebrating, but if you don’t have ideas (and even if you do) here are some suggestions:

  • Look at your list of New Year’s Resolutions. Now either a) congratulate yourself with a piece of chocolate or b) laugh hysterically and then get a piece of chocolate.
  • Do something daring. How about signing up for a belly-dancing or boxing class?
  • Have Christmas in July. Treat yourself to something nice (I see new shoes in my future…)
  • Watch the evening news and be happy you’re not on it.
  • Call your parents, a close friend, etc. just to see how they’re doing.
  • Let your children play until dark and then have cookies and ice cream for dinner.

Enjoy your day!
