I love this photo because what I’m doing in this photo is a perfect metaphor for how I see my life as a Daddy.
My role is to stay close-by, offering words of encouragement and choosing my actions carefully so that I can nurture this young lady’s sense of self belief.
Every day I get to see it blossom a little more.
The world is a scary place and fear of failure grips all of us at one point or another…
“What if I fall?”
“What if it doesn’t go to plan?”
“What if I’m not strong enough?”
For as long as I’m able to, I’ll be there to tell you this…
”Daddy believes in you.”
All you need to do is try.
I’ll always be proud.
I’ll always reassure you if you get nervous.
I’ll always pick you up again if you fall.
This is Fatherhood.
