Thanks Don Olund for this wisdom-filled article!

Ever feel like your life is running on autopilot? Or maybe, like Phil in the movie Groundhog Day, you wake up to Sonny & Cher singing “I got you babe”. One day ...looks and feels like a repeat of the day before.
I witness a lot of change happening in and around my life. I see it in the world too. I cannot control that narrative but I do think about living a life I can be proud of. I’m far from perfect, but I so much want to make my life count. I will reach a milestone birthday this year. My prayer is “May the final years of my life be the most impactful.”
My wish for you—Be the author of your life. Make it count. Carpe diem. If this resonates, then this blog is for you.
