Strength isn’t always a physical attribute. Most men equate strength or physical ability with usefulness and purpose. My dad has always used his body as a tool to build, create, lift, and to push to change the world around him. Forced now to spend time watching vs doing... the transition has been difficult. Not doing today what you did yesterday is hard to swallow... even swallowing, at times, for him, is hard to do.
Pride and respect for one doesn’t hang on strength. Usefulness doesn’t equate to ability. Strength can be demonstrated in the smallest of movements. And the love for a father from a son only grows in time.
My dad lost his dad (my grandpa) at the age of 53. This loss, for him, is still difficult to discuss. I am fortunate to still be able to learn lessons from my dad. Persistence, perseverance, patience, strength, and tenacity. A few words that describe what it takes to be a father no matter the age in which you demonstrate them. With the unwavering support from my mom he has been able to survive two strokes and continue to teach through example. And while by no means perfect, I am happy to have a dad to go watch a game with or to just bounce questions off of.
Happy Fathers Day @glennthoele.
My kids love their “Papa G” and I am happy to know that they have time with you... you have plenty of time to turn them into Cub fans. .

What you want is on the other side.

Challenge yourself to change for the better - the healthier - the stronger - the best that you can be.
I'm the worst at handling frustration... 4 weeks ago my bf and I signed up for a 5 weeks of training focused on climbing, I know that I have improved a lot from week one , but... I have a huge problem on handling frustration... whenever I can not do a boulder I get angry with my self I frustate and I'm super stubborn (sorry for the people around me at that time) but... being stubborn has one good thing ( well I'd have just found one), I am that stubborn that even if my hands are completely destroyed and I am supper angry I will be there trying again and again.. I have to admit that some days I'm not able to do it but literally the next day I will go a try again (obviously if is something that I know I can do , like a V1 or V2 I won't even try a >V3) and usually I accomplish it. I still need to learn how to handle my frustration and again sorry for the people around... but I guess that I the way that I will learn. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Soy la peor manejando la frustración... hace 4 semanas nos incribimos @diegopermansu
y yo a un entrenamiento de 5 semanas enfocado a escalar... Y no saben lo frustrante que es que te digan que hagas algo y no te sale ni uno!! Y me ultra emputo, (perdón por la personas que están alrededor de mi en esos momentos) creo que lo único bueno es que son super necia, terca o tenaz como quieran llamarlo... Y si se que puedo hacerlo estoy una y otra vez intentando e intentando... Y si me enojo cuando no sale pero eventualmente sale... (obvio sólo soy así con lo que se que realmente puedo como un V1 o un V2) y cuando sale es hermoso y sé por que estoy ahí... aunque debo de empezar a disfrutar el camino un poco más... me ha sido super pesado por que casi no tengo fuerza en los brazos.
Gracias al que me aguanta siempre.

My annual pilgrimage to the Sandberg graduation show proving I know nothing about emerging contemporary art. I was convinced this fridge contained ice cream. But it was art. That happened to contain ice-cream. The concrete blob, unnamed and unexplained is still a mystery to me. Without any indication of graduates names or even a tiny description I joined a tour to know more. I was told “we prefer not to explain, only for you to experience”. I tried. But towards the end I gave up when an artist drew connections between a donut and the end of the world. Till next year my dears, I will keep trying. #perseverence #amsterdam
Yup. 👀.#perseverence #youhavechoices #makeithappen #lifebydesign

Next time you think about giving up, remember this.
Keep going, take the next step in your journey.
You will be given the next right inspired action if you commit to it.
If you get tired, learn to rest, don't quit.
Believe in yourself, trust that you've been given dreams that you MUST fulfill and you will be unstoppable
Happiness is an empty gym 🏋🏼♂️
SOUL SEARCHING SATURDAY ~ This is so true! How do I know? Because I have experienced in the past, I am experiencing in the present, and I will experience in the future, the good things, the better things, and the best things in my life. Because I have a relationship with God, the Maker of Heaven and Earth. He is my Lord and my Savior. He is a constant presence in my life. He sees me, He knows me, He hears me, He answers my prayers, and He abundantly blesses me with faith to believe, strength to be patient, and perseverence to never give up!!! I encourage you to search your soul. Ask the Lord God to give you what you need every day to experience the good things, the better things, and the best things in life. ❤️❤️❤️
I love this visual. Our comfort zone is where we feel safe—ironically, sometimes even in situations where we aren’t safe. It is what we know. What we do on the regular. There can even be a lot of happiness in there among the stagnant.
But stepping or leaping out of that comfort zone, trying that thing that seems like it would be good but scares the mess out of you, is when you learn so much about yourself and live life more fully.
And doing so can have a positive ripple affect in your life and the lives around you.
I was reminded by a friend this morning that good stuff is on the other side of the hard when you don’t give up and get out, or sometimes are even forced out (by choices of other people, health, etc.), of your comfort zone.
It’s okay to be scared. Bravery is doing the right thing even when you are scared.
Pourquoi se limiter dans la vie, ce n’est pas ce que nous voyons autour de nous qui va se réaliser, mais notre persévérance, des millions de personnes ont une vie de rêves, des milliards de personnes une vie tellement simple qu’elle vaut à peine le coup d’être vécu, j’ai choisi de vivre la vie avec un rêves, celui de voyager, travailler d’où je veux avec qui je veux, ne pas être limiter en argent.

I laughed so hard at this post, but it's true tho! You better recognize your worth! Don't let nobody treat you less than you are. And keep in mind: YOU decide what you're worth😘 .
Life hits hard, but no matter how hard the hit is, no matter how disoriented we feel, there will always be people to tell you to get up, shake you awake, and do anything to get your attention in order to remind you that success is a fist fight every day, but it’s okay to tag in a teammate to get a breather. Those teammates are called family. They will guard you from ever falling down for the count.
