As I sit here and reflect back on my life this past year, I’m convinced that 2017 was the year of my comeback – emotionally, physically, and mentally. If you’re a sports fan, you’ve likely heard athletes discuss their experiences after a grueling injury. Many will say they don’t feel quite right again until the second season after their setback. It’s as if the mind and body need to be in full agreement that all is well even after the injury has healed completely.
When is the last time you made a decision? I’m guessing it was probably just a moment ago. You’re reading this right now because you made a choice – albeit a very minor one compared to other decisions you’ve probably made or will make today.
If you’re a parent raising young children or teenagers, I want to share a thought with you. If you’re here for the first time or back again, let me say how grateful I am that you’ve chosen to trust me with a few minutes of your time. I’m a father of course, so I want to speak to you from a parent’s heart. I confess this might not be popular or easy for everyone, but I hope to convey it in a way that will allow you to see the same significance in it as I do. However, before we get started, let me just state something up front.
Yeah, I said it. Your local library is straight fire, and I’m guessing it’s a place that you don’t visit quite often, but if you’re a regular there, kudos to you! If you haven’t seen your library card in years or ever owned one, you’re missing out on some of the best free resources on the planet!
Imagine pulling up to a red light and looking across at the vehicle beside you. You see a cool dad driving a rad jeep with his two children in the backseat – windows down, heads bobbing, and hands in the air. Blaring out the speakers is Aloe Blacc’s “The Man.”
