After another long day of being out there gettin’ shit done, it’s that time of the evening to slow it down, stop and reflect... just a little.
This picture is a hard hitter for me, there is nothing more important in this world than the privilege to be the man in this picture, guiding my son through life. Even if I’m not in a position to do it directly in front of him every day, my goal is to be there every single opportunity I get showing him how loved and cared for he really is. I know that my son is always surrounded by loving people anyway (being his mother and mother’s side of the family), no doubt about it, credit where it’s due, but he’ll always have my heart too.
I’d never wear those shoes or 3/4pants in the photo - I’d most certainly switch it up for a pair of wranglers and cowboy boots but still the message is the same😆
The reality is that my circumstance of living away from my son and being a single parent is hard, it’s hard as hell. But I know my decision to be where I am, for taking the opportunities I’ve been lucky enough to get is absolutely the right one because even though I’m far away, I know that I’ll succeed with my goal of being the man in this picture and one day I’ll build the dream that he can visit whenever he wants as much as he wants.
I’ve still got alot of strength to build, wisdom to learn and courage to seek. I still have areas of my life to improve to ensure I am “careful where I walk” but by damn sure I ain’t gonna quit.
