My First Blog

Well, I've never done this before...

 

I figured that all the "cool" kids nowadays do this so why not give it shot. I mean, someday I hope my kids will read these and be like, "Wow, who knew dad was such a cool person." I can dream can't I?

 

But being almost 40 gives you a different perspective of things. I look at my parents and how they pretty much reject technology, have given up on trying to keep up with the latest trends, even get mad at how the world is seemingly passing them by. I think to myself that I don't want to be like that. I want to be the cool dad that knows all the latest trends. But then, I already find myself not knowing what is going on half the time with technology. I see videos all the time of young kids playing drums and they are soooo good. Like ridiculous good. Must be in the water. I watch my youngest at almost 4 years old navigate a smart phone like it's nothing. Kids are so much smarter than I was at that age. But I think that is generational. Every generation has knowledge the previous didn't, technology the previous didn't and guidance from their elders. But that may not be the case anymore. 

 

I hope that some day in the future my kids can go back and read these post and hopefully have some insight as to what was really going on in their crazy dad's head and not wish I knew more about the latest tech but that I at least tried to learn. I want them to see that it's never too late to try something new. To have the courage to think outside the box. These are the things my parents taught me that made me who I am today. I was taught to be myself and think for myself. You don't have to follow the crowd but it's always good to know where the crowd went in case you need them for something. It was ingrained into my soul that you never quit no matter how hard something might seem. 

 

All I can do is keep moving my feet to the beat in my head and hope that it is a classic one that never gets old.

 

Until next time....
