What happens when you're bored.
This gentleman describes the mind as a screaming monkey - aptly named. Been looking into learning how to meditate to help quiet down my mind so that I can better triage all the projects yelling for my attention.
You should make this a daily routine.
Our days are filled with so many activities that demand our attention, often placing timelines that cause us to focus on the task at hand, which gives us little time to pause and appreciate whats happening around us.
There are so many things to be grateful for. The life you want isn't going to be handed to you. Its a conscious effort to find those little moments that make you feel alive. Find your routine to appreciate these moments.
For me, it's always been traveling and if that's not possible, just being alone long enough to exhale.
The conversation we have with each other, alone is convincing, but the vibe I get makes it undeniable that you are an old soul in that little body. And as a father, I can't be anymore proud, It's only been 6 years, but because of you I'm learning more about life now, than I ever had previously. I look forward to watching you add and passing on all the lessons we've shared throughout the years.Read More

So a trip to the library landed us a quick impromptu visit to the Beethoven and Charles Schulz exhibition.
It broke my heart to hear the news that your loose tooth finally came out. Your mom doesn't think it's a big deal. I know I might be slightly over reacting, but what she doesn't realize, is that, to me. it's another reminder that you are no longer my little baby girl.Read More
