What Star Wars Can Teach Us About Fatherhood

Do or Do Not! There is no Try….

That alone has been my mantra all through the raising of my kid, especially if I think they are not doing their best and they tell me that “they are trying their best”, I will bust out that line lickety-split much to their chagrin… In fact there is not one thing in my house that has not been influenced in some way by Star Wars. This got me thinking a bit, what is it about Star Wars that has impacted our society in so many ways?

Christmas is Over… What’s Next?

My New Year’s Resolution

If you’re like me, you are very grateful that the holidays are over and life can return to normal. The holidays for my family is always stressful because we have a large family and we host our annual Christmas Eve dinner. On top of that, our kids are teenagers and presents are so much more expensive now than when they were little. To say the least, my wife and I try to enjoy the holidays and for the most part we do, but after everything is done on Christmas day, we just are plain wiped out.

Another Year Has Gone By….

Even though Christmas is over, I will borrow the term from one of my favorite stories and adapt it: As the year closes and many people look at what the future holds and making a whole bunch of New Year’s resolutions, that even though we may have the best intentions, will often be dropped or forgotten within a couple of weeks, because of either we don’t have the resolve to finish them, or we get busy with our daily routine and lives and they end up being forgotten, or something else like that.
