My dad used to do this “move.” This lil fist bump and hell yes kinda action, especially after his put closed out the hole under par. It’s funny that I didn’t really notice we share the same silly mannerisms until after he passed away. ⠀
It’s unfortunate that the realization of so many things, mostly this love and connection with my dad came after he passed. Truly, I didn’t have the capacity at the time and when he was with us to even understand what it mean to be part of someone, to be part of something greater than myself, to really honor someone’s existence.⠀
It is the biggest lesson learned through grief and death.⠀
And now, it’s the strongest WHY there ever was. I show up in this coaching & wellness space, in Sweat Remix with so much capacity for love and honor, for my dad, for my family, for my own values, for the entire Sweat Remix Fam and for this world.⠀
Living out a legacy for my dad, of my dad, allowing his goodness and kindness and spirit to live out wholeheartedly through me is a gift. I vow every day to make him proud. To make my mom, my rock, so very proud. ⠀
That’s the best WHY that there ever was.
