Life is an amazing journey that never ceases to amaze even me. You get to a point in your life, when you feel like you finally get to know the person closest to you, yourself and then realize that you have so much more to experience and understand. I am at that point in my life. I have the freedom to call my own shots in the business world. So I can explore my life and my passions. This lesson took a long time for me. Walking down Beach Blvd in Huntington Beach. Overburdened by problems at work. Relationship problems. Family problems. Tremendous stress. Had been reading spiritual books at the time. One had said "Life is a Game". Dawned on me as I was walking. Like I was watching my own Woody Allen movie, started to think of how many more problems I could have (like Woody), and my whole life suddenly became a comedy. All stress gone. Life has been very enjoyable and tremendously meaningful since that day. I'm proud to always say that when life throws you that curve ball, that's when life really starts to get interesting. A positive attitude in life is everything. Something to learn from each person you encounter. Watching my daughter grow up has really taught me how to be a more open and giving person. Being a father has been a real challenge especially now that she's playing football, and when we have the annual Thanksgiving game, takes a few days to heal the damage he inflicts on me. Loved her from the very start. In fact, I cut the cord at birth. But at first, she was just a cute, lovable kid to have around the house. Then one day I was sitting at my computer doing email with her on my lap about a month after she was born. She was looking at the screen, then kind of turned her head and looked up at me, gave the widest, brightest smile of total love and recognition.
