I didn’t want to do a blog just congratulating fathers today because its a little expected. I lost my father at 13 so I know the vital importance of having an active father and how that affects our overall development.

I would like to pose a question. Does our society and culture really honor the role that men in general play on this planet? Know some would argue that we live in a gender biased, sexist and male dominated world,  which to the point may hold truth.

But off if basic observation there seems to be a huge difference in the enthusiasm around mothers day vs. the “oh its Fathers Day, really” mentality. Know this is a generalization. I know there are people who feel it is important to honor father, whether there own or someone else’s.

I just think that on this day fathers get the short end of the stick. Not to mention all the men who may not have there own children, but they mentor , may be big brothers or uncles etc. Do they not deserve any recognition ? Me in my own personal experience received many ” happy mothers day” from men out of respect and not wanting to make any assumptions , so they played it safe. How many men will here ” happy fathers day” from people just passing them by on the street or in line?

I would love to hear thoughts, especially from men.

Loving Me Movement: Day 2 ( Guess who loves you more! )

This post is really a think piece. On day two of  our journey we are asked to think about passion and value. Have you ever or are you passionate about something or someone? Do you know the feeling of having a driving force that keeps you going even when you may be tired or frustrated?

If you do , take a moment and think about this: Do you have that same passion and will for YOURSELF?

Often we hear that we should pick a career in something we would do for free. The fact we would do it for free is a test of our love and passion for what were doing. So why not make LOVING and EMBRACING who you are your CAREER.

Think about times in your life when you felt better about yourself. Know think about how that state of being translated into all you did.

When we become our main priority we are better for all things and people around us. It truly is all about you! You are worth the time, energy, passion, work and most importantly love.
