With less than an hour to 2012 … and the final countdown about to begin, I feel a little anxious about 2011 coming to a close. The clock is ticking. The heart is beating faster. One final post for the year. What do I have say to you boys?
Having just spent a wonderful holiday with the family over the last few days, what came to mind is this … Son, I want you to know that life is not a race. You don’t get extra credit or ‘karma points’ getting from ‘here’ to ‘there’ in the shortest possible time.
Life is a journey to be enjoyed, experienced, and fully lived. So, take time to smell the roses, land a helping hand, smile to your neighbours, do what you love, love what you do, take the road less travelled, do some silly stuffs, have some fun, and above all, enjoy the present moment, especially moments that you share with your loved ones.
Someday, when you have a family of your own, be sure to make time to play with them. Think of the countless moments of fun that we had shared, and remember that “Families that play together stay together.”
Your Playful Dad
