𝙳𝚊𝚍𝚜: 𝙵𝚊𝚕𝚕 𝚒𝚗 𝙻𝚘𝚟𝚎 𝚠𝚒𝚝𝚑 𝚝𝚑𝚎 𝙼𝚊𝚗 𝚈𝚘𝚞 𝙰𝚛𝚎 𝙱𝚎𝚌𝚘𝚖𝚒𝚗𝚐
The other day, I was out riding a jet-ski.
And being on the water or near the water always gives my brain some fresh perspective.
Lately, there has been plenty that I have come up short with, whether it be a skillset or just being the best dad or husband I can be.
It happens all the time.
Yet, when I was out riding that ski, I had the thought, ‘Love the man you are becoming’.
With that, I had some auxiliary paths of thought.
First one was this; have compassion for yourself. Life is a constant learning process. You aren’t supposed to know everything, no one does. Every man falls short in certain areas. What we don’t learn from our father/s or mentors, we need to learn on our own or not learn. It all depends on what skills we value and why.
Secondly, just as a father looks at his children and can marvel at what they are becoming day by day, moment by moment, so too, can others observe us and watch our unfolding as a man and father take place too.
It’s always hardest to realize or see in ourselves, just like weight loss.
You are in a growth stage that is running parallel to the other people in your life. Some people don’t move forward much, but they can.
Most of the relationships that you cherish most are ones in which the other person grows too, not exactly the way you are growing, but you can see that they are becoming what they were supposed to become.
Revel in the mystery of becoming the best man you can become.
If you can be present, you can enjoy it. If you are thinking of all the areas you have failed and all the things you aren’t sure about, well, then you are giving all the power and beauty from the NOW away.
Ask a lot of them.
