And the reason you’re doing it, you want your kids to have a better life.
Over ten years back, I remember asking my father if he’d miss driving.
He’d been doing it as long as I’d been alive but had to retire due to having a heart bypass.
‘Will you miss driving, now that you can’t do it?’
I couldn’t believe how quickly he’d answered my question and how short the answer was.
About a year later he collapsed and died while out walking the dog.
He worked in a job he hated, to put a roof over my head and feed me.
He wanted me to have a better life than he had.
Now imagine if I sat on my arse and watched Netflix every day.
Or didn’t push myself to be more than I am.
Or not take some of my talents and abilities and do something with them.
Those years he gave were a waste of life.
Those days he worked, when he didn’t want to, were taken for granted.
Maybe that’s a debt we all need to pay.
To show that that time wasn’t wasted.
That you’re gonna move the needle in the right direction.
When I write an email, when someone leaves a comment under a video to say that it helped them, I hope he’s looking down and proud that it wasn’t all for nothing.
That that sacrifice wasn’t wasted.
Have a great day!
