Happy Thanksgiving To All

Happy Thanksgiving to every single one of you. It’s a wonderful time of the year to remind ourselves of everything we have to be thankful for.

Since this is the last of the five-a-day blogs I’ve written today, all sharing the thanksgiving theme, I’ll simply share them here with you.

If you already follow the others, here’s something new. It’s your choice, every day, to be thankful. This is one of the first rules adults should teach children.

And the best tip for teaching children, is for your life to be your message.

jeff noel Aggressively Unfancy?

Is jeff noel aggressively unfancy?  Well, one thing for certain, I’m certainly not too funny when I blog.  But I sure do try to be aggressively unfancy.

And the concept of being unfancy is one most of us have never heard of. We have, but not in those exact words.

Aggressively unfancy means, to me, a person who is not focused on looking smart or sexy.  Sort of an ordinary person who deep down inside understands that they are blessed beyond measure simply by being alive.  And that that is more than enough.

Having a roof over your head, food on your plate, someone to love and someone to love you back.  Ya with me?  (this one’s for you MDJ)

Having a car that starts every time, someone in your life who is more important than you, a clean shirt and indoor plumbing – these things make us rich.  And potentially, aggressively unfancy. But certainly not funny.  Ya with me?  (this one’s for everyone)


We all look for shortcuts in our day to day living.  Shortcuts at home. Shortcuts at work.  Shortcuts while driving.


Because shortcuts save time.  And sometimes, money.  Who doesn’t want that?

Even bloggers look for shortcuts.  Like writing a brief post about shortcuts, to save time.  🙂

jeff noel on Hard Work

Orlando’s jeff noel speaks briefly on hard work in this jeff noel You Tube video.

Hard work is the key, in my opinion. Making choices, staying focused and looking ahead are also key ingredients in the recipe for success.

Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

PS.  Forgot to mention, having fun is real important too.   Did you catch the mini-blooper at the end?  🙂  🙂
