Modern Day Dads (@moderndaydads)

It's no surprise that many men live unfulfilled lives as subservient worker bees of the daily grind. Each day they remind themselves that their purpose must be to begrudgingly trudge through the piles be piles of manure that life throws at them, yet still try and shovel each day with a smile on their face. 💩
We come into trouble when we attach our purpose to the external, the tangible. The job, the physical condition, the family, and so on. Now don't doubt that I believe my greatest role to be a father, but our purpose has to be greater. 🙏

Imagine we attached our sense of purpose to a tree. We'd feel content and strong while it was flourishing and lose all hope come fall when the leaves fell to the ground. As the tree aged and died, so would our sense of purpose, our emotional well being, our reason to live. 🌲
With the correct idea of purpose, we could remain invincible to the ever present change that nature seems to delight in. Consider that our purpose isn't something we do or have, but something we ARE. ✊️ That purpose is self improvement and VIRTUE. Living a life of virtue, of strength in mind, body and spirit, not only do we inspire our families and our children...but also other men. 💪

This is the key to the good life we so frequently are seeking but seems outside of our grasp. No more "if only I had the right job." Striving to be the best version of ourselves allows us to be proud of who we are and derive such purpose despite our position in life. 👍
The Stoics believed virtue was essential to leading a fulfilled life. Self reflection and dedication to improvement led them to understand how to act and feel in all situations, in fear or sickness or death; practicing self control in relationships and daily life, and to act with generosity and kindness. I believe these concepts could help many lost men find their true PURPOSE, improving their ability to be a father, husband and man. 📚 "...strive to live the life that is your own, that is, your present life, and then you will be able to pass at least the time that is left to you in calm and kindness..." - Marcus Aurelius

El distraído tropezó con ella.
El violento la utilizó como proyectil.
El emprendedor construyó con ella.
El campesino, cansado, la utilizo como asiento.
David mató a Goliat.
Miguel Ángel esculpió la más bella escultura.
En todos los casos, la diferencia no estuvo en la piedra, si no en el hombre. No existe piedra en tu camino con la que no puedas crecer... ♥️🤸🏻‍♀️

How I get smaller without the scale moving is a mystery to me and I keep telling myself the number doesn't matter, my body is completely reshaping itself and I see it before my eyes, every week I see huge progress, even though my weight isn't moving.

Yes, chaos is a free-fall into the utter unknown. It is the release of your hold on the world. It is you saying, “Ok, show me!” And the show me bit is you telling the world you are ready for more, you are ready for different, and you are ready for your world to be turned upside down so that it can finally be right. Chaos can be your choice OR it can be forced upon you.

If you want to look healthy, it all begins with your diet. Eat more of the good. Eat less of the bad.
.
That’s the whole idea behind clean eating. It’s all about, well, cleaning up your diet so that there’s a greater focus on whole foods (think fruits, vegetables, protein and healthy fats), and less reliance on processed or refined foods.
