Life Lessons from My Dad

I’m sure you are all aware that yesterday was Father’s Day. Now I know not everyone is lucky enough to have a Dad in their life and I feel so sorry for them because my dad means everything to me. IMG_4361[1].JPG

My dad and I have always had a special bond, he always made me feel important to him. He is the strongest and smartest person that I know. He always seems to have the answer to every question and to every problem but when I asked him to give me some life advice that I could share with my followers he had nothing but sarcastic answers Like

“If a cop stops you try to get to get his gun but if you can’t try to get your head under the roof so he can’t hit you on the head.”

– or

“If you want to advance in your profession always carry around a clipboard and a worried look on your face.”

Now as much as I love his great advice in these two situations I wanted to share something a little more serious. I wanted to share something that he taught me that I will bring with me everywhere I go.

The best thing I could think of that I remember him saying is

“The world isn’t black and white…it’s speckled.”

Now this seems familiar to you probably because the original quote is “The world isn’t black and white. It’s grey.” But the world isn’t grey that implies that the good and the bad are all the same. This isn’t true. The good and the bad mix together but do not become one. There are bits of good and bad in every group. This helped me realize that just because someone is an atheist or black or gay or a christian does not make them a good or a bad person. You can’t assume someone is an amazing person just because they associate themselves with a certain culture or religion or whatever.

With that being said I wish I could share more of what my dad has taught me but I don’t want this post to go on forever.  So, I’ll just leave it at that. I hope you learned something from this post. Feel free to comment your opinions and such down below.

Thank you for reading and happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. Don’t forget to like this post and follow. cropped-gdarling.png
