Pardon if I go extra mushy today. I realize my gift of freakingly accurate rememberance is somehow compromised lately due to either old age, new ideas, taking in fresh concepts, details of new experiences and processing them to make sense on future dealings ( i.e Expanding Muiltiverse).
The need to document the lessons learned and awesomest memories, especially those from my father, who we physically lost last 2008) seem imminent so I will need to go back and forth to this post for updates and stories behind those lessons.
Lessons Learned from Papa:
Reconciling the JOMO (Joy Of Missing Out) with YOLO
Silence when Sober
Alcohol helps dillute the Pain
The rationale of discipline by the Belt
Formal Outside, Kooky Inside
Sense of Entitlement – A legit sense of spoiling as a reward or punishment
Freedom and Limits
Religion and Spirituality
Just reaffirming how I love and truly miss Papa – while I’m having tons fun now, can’t wait for the day we’ll get to catch up again IN PERSON.
To All the Fathers out there, Biological or Functional (The Single Moms, The Breadwinners, The Decision Makers), hats off to you all :-)
This is quiet time for me these days. No wonder I dread it so.
I wonder when I would be able to genuinely smile again.
