I know what you are thinking… do we really need another blog written by a dad. Writing about things related to being a dad and therapy? Probably not.
I hope to offer something a little different than everyone else. First off, this is my story and no one else’s. Second, I am a little different than most.
Let me bring you up to speed.
I have been married for 23 years. It has been the best and the worst 23 years of my life. My wife is my best friend and the only reason I am still standing.
I have three boys… and they are out of control crazy. Awesome, but crazy. Everyday is an adventure for us. The all play club soccer, they all play instruments, and they love being outside doing man-things.
I have two dogs, two German Shorthaired Pointers.
I live in Orlando, Fl. We moved back here in 2011 and have been here ever since.
I work in child welfare and in mental health, helping people put more tools in their toolbox is why I go to work everyday.
I like mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, camping, climbing, running, functional training type workouts, coffee, beer, and whiskey.
I have a wife and three kids. I try to run and hit the gym regularly. I attend church and try to be involved in serving my church. I have many things on my plate and sometimes it is hard to balance them all. Maybe you are have a similar experience. There is nothing magical in what I write, just honest reflection of who I am and what I am experiencing.
This is my story and I want to share my story with you, because maybe your story is similar to mine. Maybe we can build each other up. Hopefully you will find encouragement, or at least humor, in the words I write here.
