Parenthood isn’t easy. Watching these three yesterday made me think of the responsibility we as parents have to our children. Not an easy task being someone’s parent, that is, when you are fully in. It takes a ton of sacrifice, patients, understanding…it’s never ending and yet simultaneously, it is possibly the most rewarding thing I have ever done and continue to do.
This doe is drained: nutritionally caring for these two fawns has taken its toll on her, but she will rebound. As I lay here on the couch this morning staring out of the glass then back at these pics I am reminded at how blessed I am to be the father of two. A tough job, absolutely, even tougher to do it right. And then you hope and pray they become good people. I am blessed that mine are indeed good people, kind people, caring individuals, a great feeling to have as I lay here on Fathers Day and understand I have indeed been blessed with becoming a dad. Happy Parents Day, Happy Fathers Day! Have a great day!
Disconnecting to connect today. I do it often. I need to do it often! Too much anger and hatred happening in the world these days. I shut off the TV, very little personal social media, not watching the videos, not getting sucked into the vortex of negativity…I know what’s happening on the streets…I’m out there on the streets often…I see everything…I’m not ignoring what’s real…I know exactly what’s up… and the only way it’s going to change is if we stop the hate and respect each other…and we need to pray on it as well!
The completion of my ride through Philly, reminiscing about friends, family, and memories gone by and the importance of making new memories and appreciating the things and people we have in our lives now.
Mindfulness Meditation is the act of bringing your thoughts into the present moment, being in the ‘now’ and quieting those racing thoughts we all have running through our minds.
I do my own type of Mindfulness Meditation by going out with my camera and focus on searching for then finding subjects to occupy my mind at that moment, on that specific subject. Join me as I take you on a walk where I relax my mind and focus on the now.
