Being a father Being a father is the greatest gift that I have EVER received. The cliche is a cliche for a reason. My daughter has put me into the greatest journey of my life. She has made me realize that if I want her to be great, I have to be great and lead by example. Being a dad is easy. Being a father is a skill that must always be sharpened and built upon. I found this scrolling and just had to put my 2 cents into it. And lastly we all have things to learn from our kids, and they constantly remind us that we used to be challenge seekers and didn’t take no for an answer and buried those things deep inside us all. So the next time you look at your child, thank them for being awesome, and always remember, if you want your child to be great, you must take a look inside and do some self evaluations and fix what you don’t like so you don’t pass on to them those insecurities.

I’m a mom
@brettlechnar Thank you so much for sharing your perspective on being a father. Too few really appreciate the gift of being a parent. Many can make a baby but can they really put the time, love and dedication into a tiny human like a real man should?

Being a mom, I too try to better myself every chance I get so I can be a better example. Sometimes i fail, other times I see my worth and want them to see it too. Hopefully your daughter knows how lucky she is to have you as a father. Keep up the great work!

@brettlechnar Couldn’t agree more, and very well said. Your point about always sharpening and building the skill of fatherhood is spot on. I always ask myself, how can I be a better father? And that question has led me to make improvements and continue making improvements to who I am as a person.
