Father’s Day is the perfect time to honor every Dad who puts forth his best effort to make a difference in his child’s life. Most dads aren’t perfect, and guess what – it doesn’t matter!

Every hug, every joke, every moment you listen patiently, every time you role model for your child how to show up with integrity, you’re shaping your child into a person who will make you proud. Your role as a father is the most important part of you, no matter whatever else you may accomplish in life.

  1. Winning is fun, but it teaches you nothing. Failure is the best teacher in the world. Winning is a trophy, failing is an education.
  2. The key to surviving failure is to not take it personally.
  3. All the best stuff happens in the dark. Fireworks, movies, trick-or-treating, roasting marshmallows, Space Mountain. Try to remember that when you hear a noise in your closet at night.
  4. Grown-ups don’t know everything. Most of us are just trying our hardest and faking it as best we can.
  5. When you’re doing laundry, read the labels on your clothes. When in doubt, wash everything in cold.
  6. Almost everything in life is better in moderation, particularly TV, water parks, the Internet, and Twizzlers.
  7. You can be mad at someone and still love them at the same time. This can be very confusing.
