Father’s Day – An Opportunity for Self-Reflection

Father’s Day is special to me. Although getting gifts is fun, I never dwell on that part of the day. I always focus on how fortunate I am to be blessed with three beautiful children who call me “Dad.” Because of my past issues with my father, I don’t take the title “Dad” lightly. Along with being a husband, being a dad is the most important job that I’ve ever had. Each day, I work hard to model proper behavior and instill strong values in my children. More importantly, I strive to show them love and affection (I’m a big hugger).

With any job, it’s important to assess your performance on a regular basis. Father’s Day is my reset point where I become introspective and really evaluate how I’m performing as a father. Each year, I ask myself the following questions to see how well I’ve lived up to my personal expectations (click here to read the rest of the post)

Stay Strong,
