I know this is two days late but I wanted to share! I love these two other gents in this picture with me more than either of them will ever know or probably ever even imagine.
To the one in the middle, you weren’t and still aren’t always perfect but you’re the perfect dad for me. All the life lessons you taught me and the thing you shared with me I couldn’t have asked for a better, more caring, more loving teacher or father than you. ❤️ you Dad!
To my mini me on the left: you’ve made these last three years one hell of a ride. You’ve tried my patience you’ve tested my resolve but you’ve also taught me to love someone unconditionally. You’ve made me want to at least start making the changes in my life that I’ve known for years need to be made but I’ve been too damn stubborn to make. You give me a reason to smile, even on those days when I wake up with a scowl on my face. You’ve taught me that it’s ok to just say “Fuck it” sometimes. But most of all you’re the best intentional accident I’ve ever made! I ❤️you to the moon and back little man!! #FathersDay#Dad#Son#grandson#grandpa#shumpa#3generations#lovethesetwo
Money does buy happiness...
I know...a bold statement, but bare with me here for a moment.
I don’t say poor people aren’t happy or that rich people always are....
I mean when you living your life and especially when you’re married.
Most arguments in a relationship have to do with money or actually the lack of it.
Maybe even more specific, the fights are about fear, bills, lost dreams.
And to think that most marriages in the western society began out of love....
I remember the time that Muriel ( @timefreedom_mum), and I were fighting a lot.
I was always working in the restaurants, but was never able to bring in the kind of money that would give peace and happiness at home.
That’s why i made it my purpose to find a way to create an environment where there is never an issue about money, that we can live our life the way we want and have peace, harmony and passion in our marriage.
And that creates happy kids as well😊
So...does money buy happiness?
What do you think?
There is no "If there will be setbacks ... what will I do"? There WILL be many setbacks, and roadblocks and events that you rather don't want to face. .
Here's several great idea's - HOW to deal with them ... since ... it's part of the journey called LIFE. Every event is an opportunity to learn and grow and BE in the present moment. You don't have the control over the circumstances ... ...
but you do over your thoughts and your actions - HOW to deal with them. It also works this way in creating business success- - whatever that means personally for you - - .
Core key is ... never quit on your aspirations and dreams & embrace any experience and focus on your ultimate CORE goal ♥️
And that comes from deep down in your heart! That will help you overcome and be experienced. Success is the result, money is the result of success. .
So focus in the right thing. Not on the short term "pain" because that has a purpose to teach you something that is way bigger than that !
Have a beautiful week 🙂
These littles! Love their cheesy grins!
Been doing tball for my son a couple evenings the last few weeks....its so fun watching preK kids learning how to play!
It has been a challenge in the fact it is getting our kiddos to bed late those nights...and do they sleep in??? Nope...up regular time or earlier!
Cutest thing besides kids chasing the ball after their own hit, or running to wrong bases, and digging in the dirt while in the outfield??? Little man happily offering his little sister his after part of his game snacks. He is such a loving boy! Sharing even when it isn't asked or expected of him just cause he loves her! Warms my heart!
The Weight of the Glass...
Once upon a time a psychology professor walked around on a stage while teaching stress management principles to an auditorium filled with students. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the typical “glass half empty or glass half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, the professor asked, “How heavy is this glass of water I’m holding?”
Students shouted out answers ranging from eight ounces to a couple pounds.
She replied, “From my perspective, the absolute weight of this glass doesn’t matter. It all depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute or two, it’s fairly light. If I hold it for an hour straight, its weight might make my arm ache a little. If I hold it for a day straight, my arm will likely cramp up and feel completely numb and paralyzed, forcing me to drop the glass to the floor. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it feels to me.”
As the class shook their heads in agreement, she continued, “Your stresses and worries in life are very much like this glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and you begin to ache a little. Think about them all day long, and you will feel completely numb and paralyzed – incapable of doing anything else until you drop them.”
The moral: It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses and worries. No matter what happens during the day, as early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the night and into the next day with you. If you still feel the weight of yesterday’s stress, it’s a strong sign that it’s time to put the glass down
