For Mother's Day, I did a post about life lessons from my mother. Here's the Father's Day version with some life lessons and words of wisdom from my awesome father...
Be aware of your surroundings.
Live your dream.
Be disciplined in spiritual and physical exercise.
Expand your horizons.
There is no substitute for hard work.
Mediocrity is not an option.
Travel as much as possible.
Never give up.
Trust your instincts.
Work with what you have.
Stay grounded in Spirit.
I love planning memorable events... creating colorful art... every shade of blue... imagining the best... everything about the creative process.
