Happy Fathers Day

Today is fathers day and so far this has been a great one for me. I got to spend some time by myself which is something I don’t get very often. I spent most of my free time just sitting in my minivan thinking…

It’s been quite an interesting journey so far, being a father… I am blessed to have a great wife and two amazing kids. I am also thankful for my family, extended family, and friends who have helped support me/us in one way or another over the years.

I think that of ask the experiences in my life so far, being a father has changed me the most. By the time my kids are my age I imagine I will have changed so much that I could write a book about it, but who would want to read it?

One of the main changes that comes to mind is that I used to never hesitate to share my opinion, but now I tend to keep things to myself. For example, there are many things I’d like to say right now, but I am going to refrain from doing so for now. Why is that the case? Because i’m still growing and changing and in time I will be wiser than I am now which will probably change my opinion again and I will be left thinning of how silly I was to think and say such a foolish thing.

What am I blathering about?

Well, basically i’m trying to say that I hope my son and daughter learn quicker than I did to listen to their parents and not be so darn insistent on doing everything the hard way just because they can…

We all could stand to learn valuable lessons from our elders, if only we would just shut up and listen long enough to learn from their mistakes and benefit from their successes…

“Where Have You Been?” — An update on my life.

I'm Still Alive
Yes... I'm Still Alive

It has occurred to me that it has been two weeks since my last post. Time sure flies doesn’t it? Having a wife and kids, a business to run, and everything else that goes on, it is hard to keep up sometimes. But, don’t worry, I’m still alive and have a lot of neat things to share… I just need more time to do it! Ugh!

My birthday was this past week and, I’m not going to lie, it was pretty awesome! I got to go out to eat with family and friends and also got some cool stuff.

I get some questions from time to time, most of them I can answer by email and are not really significant enough to post on the site (as they are more specific/acute problems), but every once in a while I get a quest that I think will benefit a lot of people and so I try to post it on here for other to read.

So… What do you think?

But, since things have been really crazy lately, I’m going to ask for your opinion(s)… What type of stuff would you like to read/learn from this site? If you have an idea for something that would be interesting and useful to yourself and others, please let me know (comment below or via facebook, twitter, or email).

One of these days I need to put up some reviews on some paperbacks I’ve been reading… Some really good ones too! 🙂

I’m looking forward to your feedback guys and gals! have a great weekend!
