I love the way the ice wrestles with the liquid, striving to stay alive, yet with every second its life is squeezed from it.
. . .’mesmerising!’. . .
I don’t actually love Pepsi!, it’s just the word I use to say “hey I like that!” It’s strange how the word ‘love’ has been stripped of its meaning, that, in most cases, it’s just a word of convenience!
“I love my new shoes!”. . .”I love my Sunday roast!”. . .”I love my bowl of porridge!”. . .”I love my toothpaste’!”. . .
How did this happen I wonder! You-see, there must have been a time when the word ‘love’ was used to mean something deeper!. . .
What if. . .
What if we were only allowed to use the word Love for its true meaning, I wonder how many times we would actually use the word!
To all dads who have dedicated time, finances and emotional support to their children, we want to say ‘Happy Fathers Day’ and to encourage you to never give up.
When the sun is bright and the kids are a joy to be with, when your heart aches to be with them, embrace every moment, enjoy every decibel of laughter, memorise every smile that your children deliver, and receive every embrace that they offer.
And, when times are difficult, and the cash is scarce, dig deep into your emotional vaults, and remember that your children still need you, your children still love you and they are counting on you.
In the hardest of times remember, your stronger than you know, and loved more than your children can express, you are their world and their support… your the one shaping, moulding, teaching and leading them.
And fathers of youths and young men and women, your still needed your still wanted and your encouragement still treasured.
Enjoy, embrace, and treasure your role as a Father. . .
Anxiety is the silent leader in mental illness, our main ‘disruptor of peace’ Out of 40 million people affected, only 37% seek treatment.
This statistic is even higher in men as only 1 in every 10 men report experiencing anxiety and depression, and less than half reported their concerns or sought treatment.
In the 21st century, men, are raised to ‘just deal with stuff and move on’. yet somethings like anxiety can’t be removed by drinking or playing sports, and in most cases there aren’t the opportunity’s to discuss the effects of anxiety.
