They’ll never care what you bring to the table if you’re not at the table.
This has been a motto for my entire life. I’ve been steadfast throughout my fatherhood and marriage to be at the table, however, I haven’t been present. My body has been there quite consistently. The rest of me… dejected. Stressed. Distant.
I’m grateful for opportunities, currently and on the horizon, that may not allow me to deliver the multitude of presents my family is accustomed to but will allow me to BE present as my family desires.
I’m shifting focus. Honing in on priorities. Those start with my bride, my boys (two for now and maybe my girl 🤞🏼).
