HAPPY FATHER’S DAY… Seriously #FathersDay #HappyFathersDay #Dad #Dads @2tony2222


Yea, I can say it. You can say it. We all can say it… And it might be, sure is, can be, should be and absolutely could be true. I have the greatest Dad on the planet.

Wherever you fall into place here and regardless of the past, I want to bring you into the moment… for a moment. But I need your help. I need you to forget about what you know or believe about the past and work hard to stay right here. In THIS moment.

No matter your feelings about your Dads, let’s just pretend that you have the greatest Dad (like me) in the entire world. Maybe even the Universe. And as a Dad, he’s done the absolute best job he could at giving you what you need to take on this world. Love, Courage, Faith, Hope, Balls, Persistence, Determination, More Balls, Commitment, Strategy, Encouragement and about 3256 other things. And as a Dad, he’s done this 365 Days a year for the last umpteen years.

Now, seeing as how he’s done all this, how about we celebrate just one day. One day… where we can express some gratitude towards him and all Dads everywhere that although not perfect, have done the best that they knew how. Even when they made mistakes. How do I know this? Well, I’m a Dad too. And despite how hard I’ve tried, I’ve made some whopper errors in judgement and screwing things up many times.

But the one that my Dad always taught me is that mistakes are necessary in creating the ideal life. The ideal job. The ideal relationship. Mistakes are transformative in evolution. The desire to be better at something. Many people make mistakes and suffer from them because they can’t see that they are there strategically to help and make us grow. But we have to actually SEE them as being that. We have to choose wisely.

And like everything else, what we choose comes back to us. So here’s the bottom line…

If you want LOVE in your life, you have to GIVE love first. If you want better FRIENDS, you have to BE  a better friend. If you want a better DAD, then become one and experience what it’s like… but focus and be grateful for what your Dad has done… and not his mistakes. Gandhi said to BE the change you want to SEE in the world. BE it first.

We do a good job at trying to change people. Be we can’t. No one can. The most we can do is CHANGE OURSELVES. And through that, our experience will change, but it requires faith.

It’s my sincerest wish for a great day to all Dads today. But most of all, to mine. I love you, Pop. My hero, my friend, my number #1. You’re a perfect Dad… except for that last joke you told me. It was really awful. 😉
